Top Track

Stone in My Hand
Ride with the devil, hide with the Lord I got no pistol, ain't got no sword I got no army, ain't got no land Ain't got nothing but the stone that's... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Both 'Stone in My Hand' and 'Weakness' are redemption anthems that will satisfy sinners looking to be saints. They are the target audience and--along with the Everlast faithful--the ones who will find this heavy, rap-free album rich and rewarding instead of desolate and ponderous.
  2. If it's a well-worn groove, it's also an accomplished one.
  3. Q Magazine

    While accepting that his odd but beguiling hybrid of rap, country, folk, and Butthole Surfers/Tom Waits-weirdness will never eclipse 1998's platinum "Whitey Ford Sings The Blues" he's injected impetus into what threatened to become a stale formula. [Oct 2008, p.142]
  4. While the intensity does not live up to the pace set by the opening track 'Kill the Emperor,' Schrody delivers an album of relevant songs overall.
  5. 40
    His fifth solo album, which is rife with clichéd storytelling, shows signs that another makeover might be in order.
