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.

Promising

Based on Drown and Angel this sounds promising for the rest of the album, enough for me to pre-order it. I've always liked Theory of a Deadman, and I agree with Titans3693's review. I like Drown, it is good. It isn't amazing or anything, just good. Angel on the other hand is great.

Theory really is better at the ballads than the harder rock songs. They have this thing that just happens when they make ballads. A fluid and ear pleasing melody comes forth every time that I just love. Their ballads just flow, which is something when it comes to Rock ballads. Most of the time Rock ballads have a great melody and lyrics, but come across with highs and lows in their flow/power. Theory's ballads are like water. They go down smooth and refreshing. :)

Looking forward to listening to the rest of the album.

LET DOWN

i love every theory of a deadman album but this album sounds fake this album doesn’t stand out looks like they were trying to make this album radio friendly

Critic on Critics ,

way over produced

ive never been their number 1 fan or anything and I never want to be because I'm reading these 5 star reviews and these people have very low standards.The grittiness is gone. Nothing about this stands out at all. If you liked the song drown and you know what their past stuff sounds like, your opinion is completely invalid. Mark me down you low standard fans.
