    Muscular sound

    Tyler Connolly (vocals, guitar); Dave Brenner (guitar); Lenny Skolnik, Jonny Litten (keyboards, programming); Howard Benson (keyboards); Joe Dandeneau (drums).Audio Mixer: Jay Ruston.Recording information: Henson Studios, Los Angeles, CA; The Grip Studio, Nashville, TN; West Valley Studios, Woodland Hills, CA.Photographer: Christian Lantry.Despite the alienating snarl of the title Savages, Theory of a Deadman find space for guests on their fifth album. Alice Cooper wanders into the title track to mumble a recitation and Joe Don Rooney -- aka the Rascal Flatt who plays guitar but doesn't front the band -- comes in for the tongue-in-cheek "Livin' My Life Like a Country Song." This isn't the only time TOAD play around on Savages. They jab at Chris Brown and the Kardashians on "Blow," they claim they're living through "World War Me," they write an ode to their "Panic Room," and they enlist a children's choir to help them bring "The Sun Has Set on Me" to its rousing conclusion. As before, producer Howard Benson gives TOAD a muscular sound that accentuates the group's debt to Nickelback -- they both specialize in growled singsong riffs -- and his sinewy sheen is appealing; he shines the big hooks and layers the riffs so they contain a visceral force. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

    Not Bad + Not Great = Good?

    So, I bought this CD the day it came out, 7/29, and have listened to it almost once a day since.. "Drown," "Savages," "Misery of Mankind," "Salt in the Wound," and "Heavy" are a few of my favorite songs on the disc. All are harder musically and a return to the sound of their first album. "Blow," "Angel," and "Livin' My Life Like a Country Song" are reminiscent of their more pop-y, radio-friendly sound that dominated their most recent CDs. By all accounts, just skip "The One." It appears to be an attempt at a power ballad about what could have been between a man and a woman, but it's flat out horrible lyrically and musically. You'll just cringe. Seriously.

    I am a fan of TOADM and this album did not disappoint. The tone is more heavy then the last previous albums with tracks such as Heavy, Savages, World War Me, and The Sun Has Set on Me which are amazing tracks. The Ballads such as Angel, The One and Livin My Life Like a Country Song are also amazing tunes. The real let downs of this CD are Salt It Wound and Panic Room which are pretty much used as filler with their simplicity. These two songs are tolerable but you be hitting the skip button more then anything.

    I love Theory of a Deadman! This CD doesn't disappoint. They are sticking to their original style and I love that they aren't changing their style like other great rock bands. The songs are crazy fun with their beats and the awesome lyrics. They have put the lyrics into the cd cover art which is great so you can see the fun and yet great messages they are trying to get across at times. So happy I bought this cd!

    Great Theory Of A Deadman CD

    This CD is better than any of the past Theory Of A Deadman CDs. I like how Tyler most on, in part, from complaining about bad breakups and onto complaining about things that are wrong with society. Blow is the best example of this change and also my favorite song on the CD. This album is a bit darker than their past albums. It is worth the money if you like hard rock music.

    I've been a fan of theory for a while. But this album is something of a disappointment. The tracks just don't have catchy lyrics and at times feel strongly overwritten. As if they were running out of material. A few slower so go are nice, but I wouldn't advise his to new fans. I'd push for their one of their previous albums such as scars and souvenirs (my personal favorite).

    For fans of Theory, this will be a nice CD to add to the collection. I'd only heard Angel and Drown before I bought it, as I was going to see them in concert the next week. I didn't make it to the concert, but I have the CD. Blow is really catchy and I'm starting to really like it. The other songs are decent, and a few will definitely grow on you. Thumbs up.

    The first time I listened to this CD, I was a little disappointed, as I usually like all the songs on their CD's. I like Theory Of A Deadman, but this CD took me a second and really a third listen through to fully enjoy. It may have simply been, that I kept getting interrupted while listening the first time and having to click back to the previous song.
