I’ve reviewed SOiL albums in the past, and some of what I say will not be new. SOiL are a band that are clearly redefining their sound with every album – this one is no exception. Picture Perfect is another great release.
I was surprised that the band went this direction. This CD is clearly not as heavy as the previous release. If you are familiar with Seether’s album “Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces,” Seether stated they would be exploring their poppier side with that album. I’d compare SOiL’s latest to that album. Although, both albums are definaletly still hard driving, there is more of a ballad/rock anthem feel to several songs.
The band has once again “Redefined” their sound. Picture Perfect may be closer sonically to the first two SOiL albums. Nonetheless, every song is catchy and well written. I’ll be listening to this one for quite sometime.
