||Some people say that the third album either makes or breaks a band.
with their latest and third release "Animosity," have
experimented with a little bit of a different direction, but still
carry the heaviness from their first album, for an upgraded sound
that still has some balls. These thirteen songs might not be the
classics that I enjoyed when their first album came out but there
are some moments in songs like "Praise" and the highly
proclaimed "Angel's Son." "Angel's Son" was
reworked for "Animosity" with a string section, and was
quickly made for radio after the September eleventh attacks. A few
other songs that I enjoyed on this fifty-six minute CD include "Trust,"
"Dead Set," and "Shine." The production of this
disk is excellent and it was done by Ben Grosse who has worked with
Fuel and Filter. I'm sure Sevendust will be doing extensive touring
for "Animosity" especially after their over three hundred
shows in eighteen month tour for their last album "Home."
They like to play live and they do a good job at it.
