There's a lingering, forced feel and more than a few questionable stylistic decisions. User Reviews. Write a Review. Positive: 3 out of 3. Mixed: 0 out of 3. Negative: 0 out of 3. A fantastic album from beginning to end. More listenable than their last couple of releases, imo. This was true when they scrapped the "Peace" album and re-did it with Rick Rubin as "Electric"; it was still true when they enlisted Bob Rock for the first time to produce "Sonic Temple" to continue to tweak their sound; it was true when they went rawer and more personal on the "Black Sheep" album after the disappointment of "Ceremony".
After 's "Beyond Good and Evil's" line-up fell apart due to a dispute with Atlantic, you were left wondering where they would go from there It was at this time it appeared they made a decision to just play what they felt would be good music while continuing to evolve which they successfully demonstrated on their past two releases.
So, while "Born Into This" may be feel like the first steps into a new vision, and "Choice of Weapon" may feel like a more confident realization of that vision, this release ties it all together by combining their new found knowledge with lessons from the past. You can hear all The Cult's records in this one at different points but they are more allusions than direct references and they don't forget to add new flourishes. Hard rockers like "Dark Energy" and "No Love Lost" have a nice tribal drum beat by Tempesta, who has really locked down their rhythm section since coming on board with "Born Into This", and the guitars are explosive without being riff-dependent.
In general, the keyboards add a melodic depth to the songs that gives this album a unique sound in relation to the band's previous nine albums. Ending with "Sound and Fury" was a nice choice as it allowed the album to end on a very open and vulnerable note.
