I find it hilarious that Sully is doing a "solo" album considering everything Godsmack ever recorded was all Sully. Drums, guitar, bass, vocal... All Sully. That being the case, isn't Godsmack for all points and purposes a Sully solo project? Call me crazy.

Sorry but Smack peaked with Faceless.
But if it's like Voodoo or Serenity then yes, I'll get it.
Their last two albums have been....unspiring to say the least.
Sully still has some of the best pipes in metal though. :)

I heard a sample of the Sinner's Prayer single..and its pretty good..all tribal like with the hand drums and everything..it sounds nothing like Godsmack and is Sully's own personal work. I think it will be a great musical journey.

not a fan. every time serenity comes on i can't tell if its actually serenity or voodoo. can't imagine listening to an album of nothing but voodoo part 2, voodoo part 3, voodoo part 4, voodoo part 5, voodoo part 6, voodoo part 7, etc.

I'm sure he also found a way to work the words "go away" into every song as well.

but, to each his own ;)

Just heard the single, sound ok.
But if he's going to do something solo, then do something REALLY different.
With his voice I'd love to see Sully do dark ambient, new age.
Something with Nox Arcana or Midnight Syndicate.
He has the voice to do some freaky stuff.

I'm sure he has some pretty good stuff on this one..but seeing as how the first single is a cover, I'm having my doubts. Guess I'll just have to wait and find out.

yeah, i'll just wait for this and hear for myself kuz i just heard the sample of the single and it's ok at best. kinda makes me think of some adult contemporary jesus music tho. hope i'm wrong but then again i still wouldn't be disappointed since i have no expectations from this.
