I disagree - I think that this review revealed quite a bit more about the music (and the overall experience that the album offers) than quite a few of the reviews on this site do. Not to knock the review(er)s published here, but there are more informative ways to review an album than to simply provide a track-by-track run-through that reads: "track 1 opens with a steady drumbeat and ____ vocalist's strong voice in an insanely catchy chorus. Track 2 has the same great voice and heavy, yet catchy guitars. Track 3 offers more of the same, and switches it up a bit with an aggressive, yet melodic guitar riff." To me, that says little. This review, while brief, painted an incredible picture. Keep up the great work, Russ. It's wonderful to have you here.
