3.5 really: Not album of the year, but a
worthwhile attempt, May 29, 2001
It's become clear to me that there
are Lizzy Borden fanatics, there are those who say, "Lizzy who?", and
there are those who can't stand him. Of course, there's me, who thinks
Lizzy Borden makes good, solid albums, often with 1-4 songs that
absolutely rock, and a bunch of songs that are unmemorable.
Lizzy always amazes, January 17,
I am always nervous to buy a new album of my favorie artists. But as usual with Lizzy Boredom, I was again amazed by his superior vocals and writing style. Beyond excellent musicianship. I esp. enjoyed Zanzibar and We Only Come Out at Night, 2 songs a little diff. from Lizzy's past. I recommend this album to any metal fan. It's Lizzy, as usual, at his best. And his best is better then anyone elses.
Solid Comeback, November 30, 2000
The guy beneath me gives everything a three, this album is better then that! If you like his old material, you will dig this! Good songs/riffs and Lizzy's unique voice!
Pretty good material., November
It's cool that Lizzy Borden has released a new album after all these years. Deal with the Devil is a pretty good and listenable disc. Almost all the material is in a straightforward hard rock musical direction. Also, there are no ballads included. There's a total of 11 tracks, and a couple of them are cover tunes--those being "Generation Landslide" from Alice Cooper and "(This Ain't) The Summer of Love" from Blue Öyster Cult. The album's musicianship is tight and precise, while the songwriting and production are good. Various musicians play on the album. The guitar playing throughout is talented and energetic. There are some cool guitar riffs and well-constructed solos. Joey Scott does a really nice job with the drums, too. Lizzy Borden's vocals are just as cool as they were on past albums. He's truly a unique and dramatic vocalist, and I've never heard another singer that even resembles him. The background vocals are also satisfying throughout. Some of the tracks that I like are "Hell Is for Heroes" and "The World Is Mine." Two songs that are somewhat different from the others are "Zanzibar" and "We Only Come Out at Night." "Zanzibar" is an interesting straight-ahead hard rocker that contains some light experimentation. A sitar is played by guitarist Alex Nelson. The sitar provides an exotic atmosphere. "We Only Come Out at Night" is a heavy tune that's in an industrial metal musical direction. It's a good track, and the guitar playing is thick and metallic. The CD booklet contains the lyrics to nine of the songs--lyrics aren't included for the two cover tunes. The song lyrics and the cover art are interesting. Anybody that's been a fan of Lizzy Borden in the past should find Deal with the Devil to be an energetic and pretty good album--it's quite similar to the other releases. Worth a listen.
