Frankly, this album sucks. It really does. I had never listened to A7X before and going in to the review I had hoped it would at least be decent.

It's not.

I could list everything that I thought was wrong with this album, but apparently it'd be too long for most of your ADD-addled brains to handle. So here's the short version.

  I hope they return to their older style.

Rating: 8 I don't. City of Evil and Self-Titled are a million times better albums than the first two.

  Supposed to be a tribute to The Rev RIP, so it better better be good!

Rating: 10 I hear its suppose to be more progressive than anything they've done before. Personally they should go back to the sound of Waking The Fallen. the two new albums were great, but the singing wasnt that good like of waking the fallen and there was more balls to the guitar solos on that album

I hope they return to their older style.


i don't think they can go back to old style because M's vocals chords got messed up and required surgery

  Meh, I heard "Nightmare" off of YouTube and wasn't impressed, I'll reserve further judgement for when the album comes out. But their best imo was either Waking the Fallen or City of Evil...

Rating: 10 Buried Alive single is awesome

Rating: 8 Aside from a few filler tracks, I'm really enjoying this album. First couple songs (including the selftitled single) are very meh, but the album really shapes up part-way through. Not their best album, but the album as a whole feels well-planned and intelligent. Portnoy's drumming is great though. A ton better than crap they released on their prior effort.

  It has been leaked, I heard it and liked it, I think I'll give this one a 7 or maximum an 8! I have to listen to this a couple times again to see how much I like it!

  7.27.10 huh! isnt that the same release date as the US Starcraft 2??? Personally not a big fan of Avenged, just checking in on what their up to since Mike Portnoy is helping em out. But all you fans, you can grab the new album AND play SC2 together )

  Not since Back in Black have I heard such a great tribute for a fallen friend.

  Their older suff was better. Either way, I can't seem to like this band.

Rating: 9 I absolutely love this album. But my favorite songs off of this album are Nightmare, Welcome to the family, Buried Alive, Natural Born Killer, Victim, and Save Me.

Rating: 9 This is Just a soft album, Theres nothing wrong with it really in my opinion, And it has a Hardside to it such as Natural Born Killer or God Hates Us. So its not bad, Just not as Hard.

Rating: 8 In my opinion this was quite a good album

Buried Alive single is awesome

Agree! And the second half of Buried Alive... the rest is a huge pile of crap.

Rating: 7 It's certainly one of the band's better albums in my opinion, but I still think 66 minutes is way too long for what it is. The title track itself, while very well written, could do with being cut down by a minute or so, and the same goes for both 'Welcome to the family' and closer 'Save me'. That said, the majority of "Nightmare" is pretty good. Although Shadows sometimes sounds a little weak when trying to eschew his pure, clean vocals in favour of a harsher, raspier style, he can really hit notes sometimes, as on what I think is the highlight of the album 'Victim'. The musicianship is decent too, although sometimes proves a little tedious (the middle of the album suffers the most in this case), and is certainly the focal point of songs such as 'Danger line' and the dark, aggressive 'God hates us'. I can't see why people hate this band so much nowadays, they aren't even that terrible as people say.

Rating: 5 Dissapointing.
I think the Rev might have been the band's main creative force, because the creativity seems drained on this one.
Only songs really worth it are the title track and Fiction. (Fiction, just to listen to that more unique side of A7X that only came with the Rev)
