Mushroomhead returns with a more dance-able sound on SAVIOR SORROW, which means that Goth strippers everywhere now have one or two more songs to choose from. Other than that, this 12-track disc is a pretty bland, generic, and unbalanced release. However, with tricks up their costumes like the speaker scorching riff from "Tattoo" and the way their poignant Pink Floyd-esque "Embrace the End" finally gives them that Bic lighter send-off their live show craved, this disc does offer a lot of versatility. But when the appeal is mired in leftover Korn and third-rate NIN, the overall effect of songs like "Erase the Doubt" come off sounding like of sanitized industrial-strength nu-metal that the band really had to purge out of themselves.
