    Energetic and Visceral but sometimes Overwhelming

    Posted .

    This was a bit of an impulse buy - Roadrunner is often a good label (Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, etc) and I had heard a number of good things about Gojira - but while it was energetic and visceral (the music itself is epic and powerful) I was put off by the vocals. The melodic growls, while certainly not as distracting as most heavy metal vocal pyrotechnics got to me after a while. I kind of wished there we no lyrics on some tracks, because the vocals were distracting and occasionally overwhelming. I'm going to be completely honest, a week or two after this purchase I sold it back at a record store. I want to add the important caveat that my taste has kind of mellowed over the years - at one time (my teens) I probably would have loved this Gojira album. AND a more important note - which is that Best Buy does an excellent job of labeling their music by genre/category. For instance Gojira was labelled 'Hard Rock' and I have learned that while I love many 'Rock' albums, I'm no longer quite up to 'Hard Rock'. I've really come to appreciate this system as Best Buy has about the best, clearest one around. I will take it into account in my future purchases.
