Overview

Cold took a six-year break after the release of 2005's A Different Kind of Pain but they did not use the half-decade hiatus as an opportunity to rethink their musical outlook. They may be a little older and a little slower, two elements that combine on the power ballad "American Dream," which sounds disarmingly similar to DAUGHTRY, but Cold remain faithful to their post-grunge alt-metal legacy on Superfiction. After the bluster of the opening "Wicked World" fades away, Superfiction settles into a deliberate churn, with neither the music nor the message rising above a simmer. It's an album to wallow in, provided that you share some sensibilities with Scooter Ward, who is maturing slightly -- it's evident in his topics and tempos -- yet he's still compelled to filter all his emotions through the same dour metallic strain of his adolescence, a habit that keeps Superfiction in line with Cold's previous albums yet seals it away from any potential new listeners.

Some may say that Cold are outdated and in the past to rest. But this album proves that they're just beginning their career. With a new label and a new maturity, Cold reaches levels that "no one" thought they could reach, proving to everyone, once again, they can raise the bar and set it high. Superfiction is a new Cold experience and will be talked about and listened to for years and years to come.

COLD has really outdone themselves with SUPERFICTION!!! This album was well worh the six year wait. Every song takes you away to a fictional story with the amazing sounds they produce. Scooter Ward's voice is extraordinary. My personal favorites are Crossroads, Delivering the Saint, Flight of the Superstar, The Park. Honestly love the whole album!!
