Shinedown Us and Them

Someone convinced record execs over at Atlantic that there needed to be more generic, watered-down, ’90s inspired post-grunge on the radio. To fill that need, may I present to you Shinedown: a poor substitute for those moments when you can’t seem to find your old Alice in Chains, Soundgarden or even Cracker records. This album is so terrible that I’m sure Nickelback and Creed fans won’t even touch it. (Atlantic)
