Not great

I’m starting to believe this band peaked with Outlaw Gentlemen...these 2 or 3 chord “happy” sounding songs are starting to get boring as hell...where’s the darkness? The heaviness? What the hell happened to these guys? Did a little bit of commercial success really put their balls in a vice? So disappointing...

Volbeat’s songs are great ... great people

They create melodies that one can sing at the top of their lungs in the car.
REPEATEDLY....!!!
They are gracious and give 100% at their concerts.
Love some Volbeat.

Pop rock...

I’ll never forget the first time I heard Fallen from Beyond Hell / Above Heaven on a rock playlist on Slacker Radio. I knew that if this was the radio play and they were considered Metal / Hard Rock, I would be hooked. Later that week I bought all 4 of their albums and listened to them for almost 2 years. Even today, I turned up Healing Subconsciously from their first album when it hit my random play in my car.

So when they announced Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies I was genuinely excited and preordered the album. But, even though I really tried to like the album, it didn’t have the same punch or lasting power as the previous albums. Step forward to Seal the Deal & Lets’ Boogie, I was obviously hopeful, but waited until the release of the album. To me, someone who loved the hard rock mixed with the rockabilly sound that made them popular, this new pop rock sound is something I couldn’t get myself to enjoy. I understand that everyone has their own taste in music, but to me, the new sound was uninspiring and bland.

Now, with the release of a few new songs on this new album, it’s apparent that they have moved forward to the new pop rock sound. I may end up purchasing a song or two if they rock hard, but this new pop rock just isn’t for me.

iTunes really needs to remove the metal tag because these guys are no longer even close to a metal band.
