Crossfade (Columbia Records)
By: Mike SOS
Crossfade's metallic overtones (especially the guitars, which travel from Soundgarden to Ill Nino), meshed with its penchant for balladeering a la Three Doors Down make for quite the bland offering. There's not much on the quartet's eponymous debut release that Sevendust hasn't covered, and the DJ meets rock band aura that pervades tracks like "No Giving Up" and "Disco" just gives off the perception of Crossfade being a poor man's Linkin Park. Even though Crossfade's debut is consistently competent, the big arena sound that it bellows talks loud and says virtually nothing.
