Editors’ Notes On the hard-rockers’ fifth album, Theory of a Deadman’s Tyler Connolly is still voicing his frustrations on topics from greed (the title track, spiked with a sermon from Alice Cooper) to breakups (“Salt In the Wound”). But Savages stretches that comfort zone: “Blow” laces sing-songy pop with subversive lyrics, while The Offspring-esque “World War Me” is answered by lovelorn ballad “In Ruins.” Most shocking—yet surprisingly successful—is “Livin’ My Life Like a Country Song,” a heartfelt genre homage laden with knowing references.
