Shinedown – Amaryllis

Fourth full-length album from hard rock band Shinedown. They have returned to working with producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock). Unlike many bands from their musical genre these guys are not afraid to show their vulnerable or sensitive sides. Filled with emotion and honesty the twelve songs on Amaryllis are still filled with enough power and volume that you might find yourself a little beat up after listening to them but they also will have an impact on your heart and mind. They don’t focus exclusively on the negative as the healing portion of heartache and pain are also part of the songs. It is not an album without hope. Six of the tracks feature a huge 30 piece orchestra to instill even that much more of an emotional impact.  Hard rock album with plenty of heart and soul. Hopefully fans won’t brush it off as an attempt by the band to go more commercial.
