    Overblown and melodramatic, like much of their work. It just feels so fake. No where near as good as The Blackening. I deleted this and like to pretend it doesn't exist. Everyone who gave this album a good score is an idiot.

    Machine Head is still a force in modern heavy metal.

    For metalheads who like their music sharp and executed without recourse to compromise, then this is a contender for genre album of the year.

    This is a gloriously brave and vibrant piece of work and the most significant metal album of 2011 by some distance.
