So tell us what you think. Love it, hate it, favorite song etc.

No crying here. I Don't expect most to agree with me on this one. I figured the
diehards would rip me. Rob can still sing the songs it's the songwriting on this album
that I hate the most. Also too many songs like Fire and Ice and Heartless.  Those kind 
of songs put a pit in my stomach. I like (heavy metal) not shit like this. The Mower is
more my style and like you said it's out of place. Maybe after a few listens my mind
will change. It's not like that's never happened before(LOL).

That "Made oF Metal" track is a bit cheesy. I've only heard Made of Metal and The Mower. Are the rest any better?

Supersonic silver flying machine  ...thats kind of a crack up.

Hey, Budred! Are you ready for the bashing?? *cracks knuckles* I'm known around these parts for breaking noses and making them bleed. So watch out!

Just kidding, just kidding...please don't cry...


Now, then. On to the subject at hand: HALFORD IV!

So far, I'm digging it! I enjoy all the songs up to Hell Razor (my all-time favorite so far), with Matador and Twenty-Five Years being the exceptions after it. The sports ones I can handle. Don't like Boxing, NASCAR, nor Bullfighting, but still. The music and that general theme of competition leaves me asking for more. 'Til the Day I Die is another good one. Love that bluesy beginning.
Thunder and Lightning sounds (to me) like a filler track. I Know We Stand a Chance is okay (not a favorite). And as much as I like The Mower, it seems out of place in this album.

Rob's singing is phenominal. He sounds as though he's singing at a comfortable range and isn't exerting himself too much. Others might call that a lack of effort, but in this case I disagree. He sounds great!

Overall, I give it an 8/10. Not as great as Crucible nor Resurrection, but enjoyable, nonetheless.

I haven't got my copy yet, but what I have listened to I like. Yeah the nascar and boxing type lyrics are cheesy, and my least favourite part so far, but also on the album are very personal songs like Twenty-Five Years. And the vocals on Hell Razor are amazing, we haven't heard Rob sing like that in a long time!

I know new threads suck (to some) but I thought this was appropriate. I'll go first.

I'm not digging it.
