patlAug 1, 2005it's band evolution, helmet sound with the right melody.
michaeldFeb 9, 2005I'm a long time Helmet fan and I think that this is a great, but minimal, agressive album. Never listen to what the critics say. Page Hamilton will still kick all of their asses.… Expand
Marc-O.NJun 10, 2006Kicking and aggressive opening track followed by another intense song then a couple of pretty enjoyable tracks!
sanfordbNov 6, 2004i think this is a great album. it doesn't sound much like helmet's earlier material. it's closer to aftertaste. this album sounds like it has a real failure influence. i like it a lot. i can understand why so many fans don't like it because it doesn't sound like meantime, but bands are supposed to change, right? it's a great heavy but melodic album, and i think it's one of the best albums of the year, so far.… Expand
DanWOct 16, 2005I think the critics are looking at the sound of the album back to front i.e. they're looking all the whole influx of Helemt influed bands that emerged and then saying "hey the new Helemt records sounds like those guys and, so it's a tired sound"....HELMET INVENTED THAT SOUNDS YOU GOONS!!!!! I think the intention of the new material is to not be 'anti melody' as some of the earlier stuff perhaps was, but to combine 'old Helmet' - intensley spiky rythmns etc - with a natural band evolution (as someone Pat l rightly points outs) towards the sound that exist now.… Expand
F4bJul 2, 2005Why the hell critics are so bad?!?! Sure this is not Strap It On but is a nice and catchy return of one of the most influential band of the 90s.
TomPOct 9, 2006I really really wanted to like this one. I was sadden that they broke up after Aftertaste and joyful when I heard they were back together. For me, Aftertaste is an amazing CD. Size Matters is purely generic. Nothing special. After several rotations only the first song stands out at all and it would be a B side for any of their other CDs. So, pass very quickly. Stick with Meantime and Aftertaste and be thankful that Helmet gave metal 2 top tier CDs to worship.… Expand
