Faceless (2003)

EW's GRADE
C-

Details Release Date: Apr 08, 2003; Lead Performance: Godsmack

These Boston 'bangers say they've ''matured'' on their third album; for proof, consider ''I F -- -ing Hate You,'' a deeply felt diatribe against...a contractor who worked on singer Sully Erna's house. Such grown-up inspirations aside, mostly it's the same staccato riffing, constipated vocals, and generic, rage-against-the-kidney-stone angst, perfectly timed as a fleeting fix until that next Metallica album ships. Kudos, anyway, for truth in titular advertising.
