Scars & Souvenirs [CD/DVD] [Clean Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Katherine Fulton
Scars and Souvenirs, the third album from Theory of a Deadman, sounds like a rehash of the band's first two albums -- which is to say that it sounds like Nickelback. Chad Kroeger signed them to his 604 Records label in 2001, and throughout Scars and Souvenirs, Theory of a Deadman draw upon the melodies, vocals, choruses, and riffs of Kroeger and company.

Chad Kroeger signed them to his 604 Records label in 2001, and throughout Scars and Souvenirs, Theory of a Deadman draw upon the melodies, vocals, choruses, and riffs of Kroeger and company.

Like their previous effort, Gasoline, Theory of a Deadman turned to producer Howard Benson on Scars and Souvenirs, which could explain why the album sticks to the same sounds and formulas instead of branching out in a new direction. It makes Scars and Souvenirs less then essential, given that nothing has changed. [The album was released again in 2009 with eight bonus tracks, including acoustic version of songs from the album, new songs, and a handful of covers. It also came with a bonus DVD of videos. In addition, the CD/DVD edition was released in a clean version with explicit content removed.]
