Not all of the songs are as good as they could or should be. Though there are a couple of good songs on it. It is probably worth the money just for those couple of songs.

Amidst the obscurity in the current music scene, in terms of the musical orgies that are taking place with metal meeting techno and pop and ocassionally exchanging partners with rap and alternative, Godsmack hit the spot and took me to new heights with th

GODSMACK - keeping it heavy for 2000 and beyond

by quikable@deathsdoor.com on 6/20/1999

I've been listening to Godsmack ever since May of 1998 and they haven't let go of me since. It's hard to pinpoint WHAT it is about Godsmack that's so intoxicating, whether it be Sully's poignant vocal stylings (reminicent of Layne Staley), Joe and Robbie pounding out the rhythm section, Tony going nuts on his driving riffs, or just the overall heavy groove that comes attached with both newer bands (Sevendust, Coal Chamber) and established bands (Pantera - the GODFATHERS of the heavy groove) alike. When the time comes to wage war on the crappy boy bands, R&B, and eMpTyVee, Godsmack will be right there on the front line. Go ... go right now ... slap down yer 10 bucks, go home and CRANK THIS SUCKER UP!!

Album Notes and Credits
Godsmack: Sully Erna (vocals, keyboards, drums); Tony (guitar, vocals); Robbie (bass); Tommy (drums).
Recorded at New Alliance Studios, Boston, Massachusetts.
Personnel: Godsmack (percussion); Tony Rombola (vocals, guitar); Sully Erna (vocals, keyboards); Tommy Stewart (drums); Mudrock (percussion).
Recording information: New Alliance Studios, Boston, MA.
Boston's Godsmack practices the sort of post-industrial metal made popular by White Zombie and perpetuated by Tool and Alice In Chains. But by mixing the raw riffing of their peers with the machine-gun rhythms of Nine Inch Nails, they distinguish themselves from the pack. On their self-titled major label debut, they demonstrate the commitment to furthering the evolution of metal that won them a loyal fan base in New England.
Singer Sully screams his way through a dozen tunes chock full of chunky guitars and moshing rhythms. In keeping with the tone of modern metal, he sings about his own demons and failings rather than vaguely defined ills of society. While no threat to Dave Mustaine or Cliff Burton, guitarist Tony and bassist Robbie have a commanding presence that emphasizes attitude and power over technique. And drummer Tommy has picked up where Lars Ulrich left off with quirky fills that add a depth to the sometimes two-dimensional rhythms.
Artist Overview
Boston-based alternative metal group Godsmack debuted in 1997 with All Wound Up and then signed to Universal, which in 1998 reissued the LP as a self-titled effort with a handful of new tracks. The band's audience built slowly but surely, and Godsmack was certified gold in 1999, the same year the group was invited to join the Ozzfest tour; by the next year, it had sold over three million copies. In 2000 the group released its second proper album, Awake, and by March 2001 it had sold two million copies. Additional platinum or gold releases followed during the 2000s and 2010s. ~ Jason Ankeny
