Weak Display of Pantera's Power
The other albums are fantastic, so I don't know what went wrong here. It's pretty bland. I don't understand the praise for this album.
Even after all these years I laugh at this lame album (and the people who think it's good). I was 12 when I first heard this and saw right through the bravado and BS this album spews. Songs like Walk and F'n Hostile are the blueprint for dropouts with sleeveless shirts that hang around gas stations talking about what they are planning on doing with their trucks. The lyrics would be laughable if they weren't so obviously phony. Phil tries so hard to be the tough guy with all of his shouting but comes off more as a clown. The riffs are simplistic and trite. The only thing more overrated than this album is brother Darrell's guitar playing. Worse than that though is this album inspired crap like Korn and other nu metal bands to crawl out of the toilet and unleash mediocrity to the airwaves. I don't hate Pantera. They have moments of decency but this album contains none of those moments.
