I shouldn’t like Shinedown.
Their first album was a hard rock masterpiece, but after that, it seemed like their albums began to incorporate a little more pop and a little less hard rock. I’ve been frustrated over the years when some promising bands appeared to be selling out rather than sticking true to their sound. But in the case of Shinedown, I am always excited for a new release – not because I’m hoping that they go back to a more hard rock style, but because I’m genuinely excited to see where they go next.
And in the case of Threat To Survival, it’s a modern-day hard rock master class.
