Leave a Whisper

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Shinedown is the latest rock combo to be signed out of Florida (in this case, Jacksonville) since the popular explosion of Creed and, to a point, Limp Bizkit. Shinedown has much more in common with the former on its Atlantic debut, Leave a Whisper -- in fact, there's little on the album that doesn't have something in common with another group that listeners have heard before. The layered harmonies of Alice in Chains dominate the set, which musically is cousin to post-grunge types like Saliva and Puddle of Mudd. Brent Smith's vocals fall somewhere between Glenn Danzig and Layne Staley. He also channels Aaron Lewis for a little of that heavy band balladry on "Better ...

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Shinedown is the latest rock combo to be signed out of Florida (in this case, Jacksonville) since the popular explosion of Creed and, to a point, Limp Bizkit. Shinedown has much more in common with the former on its Atlantic debut, Leave a Whisper -- in fact, there's little on the album that doesn't have something in common with another group that listeners have heard before. The layered harmonies of Alice in Chains dominate the set, which musically is cousin to post-grunge types like Saliva and Puddle of Mudd. Brent Smith's vocals fall somewhere between Glenn Danzig and Layne Staley. He also channels Aaron Lewis for a little of that heavy band balladry on "Better Version" (sample lyrics: ."..Caught a glimpse, but the reflection's only mine"; "It's almost like I'm paralyzed"). Elsewhere, chunky guitar riffs establish Shinedown as a capable hard rock band. "Left Out" and "In Memory"'s thundering power chords fade to chorus-channel dynamics in the verse, making room for more blustery lyricisms about personal pain, relationship woes, and other "boy, is life sucky" stuff -- essentially, the same set of issues that seemingly all of these post-grunge rockers rant about. Coupled with a two-dimensional sound (sound number one: heavy! Sound number two: brooding!) which varies little from song to song, let alone from the sound of its peers, Shinedown's debut offers some hope that heavy music will right itself from the nasty stumble of its last few years. [The album's bonus track edition featured acoustic and multimedia material.]

    Awesome band

    This band has been getting some radio play up north (Great Lakes) so I thought I'd check it out at the House of Blues....sweet music , amazing vocals, and the band has enough energy to break out anytime.

    They will Make it BIG!

    I saw them in Kansas City at Rockfest and they were incredible. They are definately a band to keep an eye on. The CD rocked even more than I thought it would and all of the songs on it are awesome so you can listen to it from beginning to end without skipping any tracks. If you're looking for sweet new rock definately buy this!

    This band is what we needed for a long, long time. They write their own songs, play their own instruments and their lead singer actually can sing!!! Its soulful, hard rock,alternative and gives you chills listening to the words of the songs. Thank you Shinedown..............we have been needing this for a long time!!!!!!!! Ash
