Gina’s Music Review - Shinedown’s Sound of Madness A+

I buy a lot of music cd’s so I thought I’d add a part of my blog to review the cd’s that I buy.

I’m loving Shinedown’s Sound of Madness CD. I first heard them on VH1 with their Second Chance song. The singer Brent Smith can really sing and he’s from Knoxville, Tennessee. Another plus. I tend to like Southern singers. :)  Shinedown does a lot of acoustic versions of their songs and the live performances almost always sound like the recording studio versions.  I’m not going to lie, if I hadn’t heard them before I saw them I probably would not have listened to their music.  The group kind of has a dark, gothic, tattoos, rock look about them which is not usually what I like. So it’s true you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

This album is great! Very balanced with both ballads and rock songs. The lyrics are very deep. Music is awesome. Favorites are Breaking Inside, Call Me, If Only You Knew, Second Chance, Sound of Madness, Devour, Sin with a Grin, What a Shame and Cry for Help. And not in that order. It’s hard to say which I like best. It would probably be a ballad though.

I wound up buying all 3 of Shinedown’s CD’s. Favorites off of those cd’s are Burning Bright, Save Me, Crow and the Butterfly, 45, and Energy. Sound of Madness is definitely worth a listen and I recommend it.

Here’s a link on Youtube to listen to Burning Bright, one of my favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIAF1tXFsuc. It’s not a video though, just made by a fan that has pictures of the group.
