Through the years since their first album, Fozzy has grown as a band and as musicians and “All that Remains” is my favorite Fozzy album. “Fozzy” and “Happenstance” were both great albums, and I enjoy listening to them, but when I heard that “All that Remains” was due out, I was overjoyed and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The proof is in the album. With this album, the storyline is completely gone and they are Fozzy: These guys are Huge Rockstars! “ATR” is Fozzy’s third album and I believe this is their strongest to date. Chris Jericho does have a great voice and the songs fit him well. The music has influences from rock and modern metal which makes it more aggressive than before. The music on “ATR” is outstanding, with the members of the band along with special guests Bone Crusher, Zakk Wylde, Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti just to name a few create the right atmosphere for this album. “ATR” is more than an average metal album. It introduces us to the Fozzy that we were all hoping would come out with heavy guitars and some killer vocals by our man Chris Jericho. Rich Ward provides you with in your face guitar that accentuates the vocals. The hooks that are in these songs are unforgettable, you can’t not hear them. Jericho layers the harmony creating the unmistakable vocals hooks. Frank Fontsere’s work on the drums is not to go unnoticed. Without his drum skills this would possibly be a lost album. It has every aspect of metal you could as for. The songwriting on this album is second to none. I have heard great metal before; this goes on my list of great metal that people are missing. This album isn’t a disappointment. It is strong, definitely a group effort, and one that sticks with you.

Maximum Metal Rating Legend - Click for Full Details
5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
