Rating: 9 Awesome album, if your a metal head you should definetly look into this one. It seems as though LOG seems to improve every album as they go on in their succesful career, there's a good variety of songs and its one of those albums that theres not just a couple good songs, but all of them are amazing! Instruments are amazing as well. Highly recommended...

Rating: 8 Singing is different and takes some getting used to, but overall a great album. The beginning and end of the album seem to hold more merit then the middle in my opinion
solidsnake666 - 20.02.2010 at 06:23  
  Personal favourites... Reclamation..In your words.
Vintage LOG.
gudermintjener - 23.04.2010 at 14:36  
  I think this album is good, but not as great as their other albums. I don't like their development against more and more mainstream... I love the early LoG <3
soadbyob - 23.04.2010 at 16:44  
  Amazing album, another classic from the greatest LOG ever!
LOG, LOG, it's better than bad, it's good!

  I've only heard "In Your Words", sound in the vain of Devin Townsend.

Rating: 5 Boring and uninspired. Generic like hell. If you want quality thrash - look elsewhere. 2009 for me had two decent Thrash releases: Endgame (\m/) Walking into Nightmares.

  I like this band a lot, any similar bands ?
I already listen to Slipknot, Machine Head, Five Finger Death Punch...

Rating: 9 Anyone calling this too 'mainstream' is retarded. I'm sure I'll never hear lamb of god on any of my radio stations (as if i have some) or chart topping videos, get real. Mainstream music doesn't focus lyrics on the destruction of humanity or how our country is fucked up. Everyone I ask about this damn cd hates it because its too 'mainstream', and I just don't get it. Otherwise amazing fucking album, Reclamation is fucking badass, the only difference in lamb of gods sound since they started is theyve gotten tighter as playing as a unit and their production has improved (which some people are against, again, not sure why). Great album if you listen to metal for the music and not just to impress people with your unknown-underground-only-known-to-yourself-super-list of bands...

Have you heard about Chimaira?? Try the album Ressurrection.
svartberger - 24.01.2013 at 23:28  
  The album is good but am i the only one who thinks the intro from in your words is extremely similar to kreator's hordes of chaos??
Illog1cal - 06.02.2013 at 01:01  
  'Reclamation' is an excellent song, shame the rest of the album sucks.
gieliebabon - 14.03.2013 at 23:32  
Rating: 9 That's strange because after listening to Set to fall, Contractor or Grace Reclamation seems to be unimportant for me. But generrally love this album.

Rating: 10 One of the best metal albums i have heard in my life....contains some epic songs...

Rating: 8 Definitely a great album. Excllent song writing and performances.
Dr.Overkill - 15.06.2014 at 05:16  
  No review? I will have to Rectify that... all in good time. My fav Lamb album is definitely a toss between this one and As the Palaces Burn, I feel like this album flows a bit better though.

Didn't you just listen to Palaces for the first time today? Seems a bit premature calling it your favorite LoG album...

No No No... Miscommunication. I listened to the WHOLE ALBUM from front to back for the first time. I've been listening to 'hits' from that album for years, or even ALMOST the whole album via youtube, that album fueled many intense workouts... I would listen on my cell phone then I got fed up with bad quality/load times and just started buying their cds, That was spring of last year that I bought Ashes of the wake, As the palaces Burn and Wrath. Then I just bought Resolution like a month ago.

Rating: 8 Yeah but I've encountered a cult here on Metalstorm who claim they rate an album after one listen and don't need any more than that to make a final assessment of an album.

Well, one listen is generally all you need to process an album, unless it's like some super proggy mess or something.

  Lamb of God is the kind of band that you can readily digest upon a single listen. Their music is about as straightforward as it gets and their albums - not to mention their songs - pretty much all follow the same formula.

Very true, although that might actually be one of the flaws their music counts, at least you don't see me complaining about coherence or consistency in their albums. It works so well on As The Palaces Burn, you just don't want it to stop. Now invert the negative and positive of that last sentence and you get what I think of Wrath .

Yup hence I likes them a lot.

They do manage a fair bit of variety in their songs due to focus on distinctive riffs and changes in vocal delivery.

I can tell their songs apart on albums, though sometimes albums blur into one another, especially frokm Ashes Of The Wake.

There are some albums that I've needed 10-15 odd listens to "fully get" and enjoy the album.

Single listens don't allow for full appreciation of nuances unless it's something you instantly dislike or a genre you're not fond of.

  If you need 10-15 listens to understand an album, you're probably just bad at understanding music to begin with.

And there's always new things to try. And sometimes you have to have a few sessions to find the optimum G spot, position and rythm.*


But some reasons why I may need 10-15 listens for some albums:

1. Mood. Sometimes I'll listen to a new album cause its new and not be in the mood for it. Hence I don't enjoy it as much as if I would if was in the mood for it.

2. Interruptions & Distractions. There are always distractions and interruptions to music listening. How many of us just sit there and listen to an album uninterrupted and without doing anything?

3. Human attention span - we all lose attention for whatever reason.

4. Complexity - with some more complex stuff it can take a while for it to sink in especially when hooks and memorable bits aren't so obvious.



Hence listening to an album 10-15 times can help mitigate all of this. Of course sometimes I only need 1-2 listens to an album to discover whether I like it or not.

Most of the times it's 5-6 or so listens.

All four points are good ones, deadone, and I can relate to experiencing them all at one time or another.

So it takes you 10-15 tries with a woman?

Don't worry, we don't judge here.

That's what I love about Metal Storm, and why I keep coming back - the people are so non-judgemental. I feel I can really open up, without fear of being ridiculed.
