They are ahead of the pack.What there tring to do.It just plain works together.I like them!
Queensryche’s follow-up to the double-platinum Empire is something of an acquired taste, but it’s well worth the effort. There’s considerable variety here; the heavy progressive-rock of ”I Am I” and the ballad ”Bridge” were hit singles, but there’s also the funk-inflected ”Disconnected”, the edgy, spooky ”Lady Jane”, and the piano-and-vocals ”Someone Else?”. The title track is probably the strongest and least accessible song on the album; instead of rocking out, it’s a slow, heavy song in the vein of ”Anybody Listening?” from Empire. Listen to it at least five times before forming an opinion; each time, you’ll hear something you didn’t before. –Genevieve Williams

I’m AMAZED that I’m the 2nd review on this album – only 1 other review?? Great bands like Soilent Green, Unexpect, and Anand Clique are oddly left underground – this album is quite entertaining! Highly recommended for hardcore and rock fans.
It’s more of what you love if you’re a fan of Soilent. I just caught them live and highly recommend seeing them on this tour. To follow up such a brilliant album as Confrontation with the quality shown on Collapse puts them atop my metal list. Especially when you consider the challenges this band has overcome in it’s near 20 years of greatness. There’s a vid on youtube for Antioxidant worth clicking on. They only fail at disappointment. LONG LIVE SOILENT GREEN!!!
When I first heard track 4, “Antioxidant”, one night on the radio (of all places), it was such a complete assault on all senses that I had to immediately order the CD. Since the moment I received it I have played the crap out of it from front to back on a daily basis. There is not a moment of weakness on this album….absolutely worth every penny…I may get another copy it’s that good. Now quit reading this and go get it.
This CD is excellent.. If you are a true fan of metal and are tired of the cookie cutter sing-a-likes. You should by all means buy this and spin it multiple times. These guys are on top of their game. The lead guitarist Brian Patton shreds with the blues like none other I have heard, at least since the Dimebag. The groove he lays out is nothing less than addictive.. Thats right, I said groove, it is in there, I’m talking behemoth swamp groove blues grind. I recently read in blender magazine where they stated tomas haake of meshuggah is the number one drummer in metal.. I beg to differ. He is really good dont get me wrong. but Tommy Buckley I think to be the better.. He is tight and ALL OVER this piece. His double bass Drives this badboy through stops and starts and fills commandingly. The singer Ben Falgoust complimenting perfectly, guttorally, and a bit Anselmo-ish. Given they are both from New Orleans its easy to understand.. I bought my first Soilent Green album in ‘98, Sewn Mouth Secrets.. I shelved it for a while, I didnt play it much. I guess I was more mainstreamish at the time, Boy was I a fool. Then i bought Confrontation and abruptly “saw the light”. Now I CANT STOP listening to ALL their albums.. Everything else is crappy and hollow now. These guys, like Mesuggah, speak a whole new metal language and should NOT be overlooked or underlistened. The Real Deal, the Crown Jewel of Southern metal! Stop wasting time and money, fill the void in your metal and get this! Your welcome..
