      I wish that Robb would just admit that they tried the rap-metal thing and it didn’t work out. I actually liked the album when it came out, and there are a few good songs on there that don’t suck, I’d just chalk it up to a bad period in music history. Shit even my beloved Fear Factory got caught up in it, but I forgive them.

    • “Every night we play songs from that record”… I’ve been looking for them to play “Supercharger” for a long goddamn time. By far the best tune on that album, which I think has a few good tunes. I’d actually say I prefer it to the Burning Red, but I haven’t listened to that album in a long time.

    • As varied as MH’s back catalogue is, I must confess that there is not a single song by them that I do not love. And yes, that includes the Supercharger era as well. What can I say, I love this band. No two ways about that :)

    • Machine Head lost all credibility years ago. All they do is jock trends and hope no one calls them on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if their next record had dance beats and T-Pain vocals just so they could cash in again and try to stay relevant.

      Bought this in the clearance section from the BMG Music Service for $1.99. The shipping cost more than the album, and I still paid too much.

    • Statler- you’ve evidently not checked out ‘Through The Ashes…’ or ‘The Blackening’ yet? If you’re a fan of early MH, you really should!

      Through The Ashes Of Empires snippet goes up today and The Blackening Monday. Am planning some more with other RR artists for sure. We have a Twitter- I post all news on there as it goes live- twitter.com/Roadrunner_UK

      Glad you’re enjoying the series.

    • I totally agree w/ Statler. “Burning Red” was good but they changed on that album b/c they needed to expand their fan base. It worked but they weren’t the same. Then “supercharger” came out and made me realize these guys try to be relevant with making whatever their peers are doing or what sells. To me this album pissed me off so much that I could no longer hold this band credible. They lost my respect but I did buy “The Blackening” and it was alright just nothing memorable.
      Rob’s lyrics are still juvenile as hell and it seems like what he’s talking about “supercharger” as being personal and poetic is the reason why I can’t listen to them the same anymore. He ruins it with amateur writing b/c he lacks wordplay and vocabulary. It’s like listening to a 10 year old in a 38 year old mans voice.

      They are one of the last real “heavy metal” bands left. Through The Ashes and Blackening are great. They just play straight forward, don’t try to be technical, no gay ass screaming, just good old fashioned heavy music. Plus when they let that random dude get up on stage and play guitar, that was too cool, I respect them more after that.

      Juvenile lyrics??? Have you even listened to Through the Ashes Of Empire? Seasons Wither? How are those lyrics from one Robb Flynn considered juvenile…you statement is ridiculous..in my opinion.

      Machine Head forever!
