After Staind and P.O.D. now the third American Rock sensation within only a few months: Puddle Of Mudd are the heirs of the Seattle-sound. A quartet that, so it seems couldn't get enough of Alice In Chains, Nirvana and Soundgarden and now transforms these influences to energetic 4-minute killers, including melancholic foundation, multi-choir vocals, psychedelic feeling and huge guitar walls. It's been a while since such sad music has been so attractive, charming and addictive like the 11 songs of this debut. Because the band from Kansas City is not only going for melancholy, they also write beautiful songs with charts appeal ("Out of my head") or picks up the acoustic guitar ("Drift & Die") and jams a while. Yet, Scantlin & Co. have their best moments always when they are really kicking off, when they hit the drums really hard and present fat riffs, when the frontman roars and you see Cobain, Staley and Cornell in sad unity before your inner eye. Those were great days ...
