All Eyes On You

Mother Misery - All Eyes On You - Daredevil Records - 2006
'All Eyes On You' is as comparatively good as the songs on the prior release with no loss in the song standards they set down before. Like a good AC\DC record, Mother Misery gives more than what we expect and more than what we deserve with gems of simple knowledge. 'My Soul' is fairly similar to the 'grandiosity' opener 'My Enemy', a caustic affirmation of independence--a metalhead familiar. Other tunes have a hooked sound, with plenty of crash and bash to keep the party up. "I Will Never Learn" has the great quality of being upbeat with downer lines and in fact, inspired me into making a new drinking game. The title track blazes as one of their fastest numbers and 'Pray for Them Pigs' rounds the CD out with a tough mood similar to the first. The only real thing not on the CD is the slower songs that show off their ability to incorporate simple dynamics and space to create mood like the older 'It Comes Again'.
I'm knocking a half-point of my review since the CD is a little too similar to 'grandiosity', but for fans of catchy, riff-based guitar rock similar to Monster Magnet, Mother Misery makes it look natural. Some tracks have been slightly changed from the EP, so collectors of the band's discography may want to pick it up as well.
