Not too surprisingly, Mushroomhead’s trademark sound echoes through most of the ﬁrst solo album from the band’s frontman, Jeffrey Nothing, as, from the melodic and haunting “Time” to the downright bizarre “Mnemerator,” the singer shows off his remarkable vocal versatility. On the head-thumping ﬁrst single “Enough” and groovy “Devil,” he even channels the goth-glam croak of Mechanical Animals–era Marilyn Manson. Still, the album can’t avoid the impression that it’s simply Mushroomhead-lite most of the time—which will be ﬁne by hardcore fans of those masked miscreants, but not so good for anyone actually wanting something new.
