3.5 really: Not album of the year, but a worthwhile attempt, May 29, 2001
Reviewer: markgugs from Glen Rock, NJ United States

It's become clear to me that there are Lizzy Borden fanatics, there are those who say, "Lizzy who?", and there are those who can't stand him. Of course, there's me, who thinks Lizzy Borden makes good, solid albums, often with 1-4 songs that absolutely rock, and a bunch of songs that are unmemorable.

Lizzy's newest disc in 9 years is just such an album. The opener, "There Will Be Blood Tonight," kicks things off in high fashion, with screaming guitars and a melody that comes so easily, I couldn't believe I was listening to a Lizzy Borden album. "Hell Is For Heroes" continues the trend, bringing to mind an era when metal songs were simply a good way to bang your head and just enjoy yourself. "The World Is Mine" simply shreds, an instant metal classic, full of haunting rhythms, driving drum beats, and a whiny, nearly bratty vocal sound. And "Deal With the Devil" is a big time HEAVY metal sound, full of classic 80s style guitarwork and shouted vocals.

On the other hand, both of the "experimental" songs ("Zanzibar" and "We Only Come Out At Night") just failed to capture me. The former has this wacky Arabic-flavored beat and feel to it, and the latter is just way too industrial for me. Great riffing, but god I hate the overall style. The covers are cool enough though. Not being familiar with either of the originals, I don't know how they compare, but the Alice Cooper tune, "Generation Landslide," is full of melody and driving Zeppelin-ish guitars and drums.

The rest is mostly forgettable. Cool album, especially considering it's the band's first in nearly a decade, but I'm not sure how much I'll be revisiting it 6 months from now.


Lizzy always amazes, January 17, 2001
Reviewer: Amanda S. Williamson from Florida

I am always nervous to buy a new album of my favorie artists. But as usual with Lizzy Boredom, I was again amazed by his superior vocals and writing style. Beyond excellent musicianship. I esp. enjoyed Zanzibar and We Only Come Out at Night, 2 songs a little diff. from Lizzy's past. I recommend this album to any metal fan. It's Lizzy, as usual, at his best. And his best is better then anyone elses.


Solid Comeback, November 30, 2000
Reviewer: A music fan from 666 Mockingbird Lane

The guy beneath me gives everything a three, this album is better then that! If you like his old material, you will dig this! Good songs/riffs and Lizzy's unique voice!


Pretty good material., November 22, 2000
Reviewer: sauerkraut

It's cool that Lizzy Borden has released a new album after all these years. Deal with the Devil is a pretty good and listenable disc. Almost all the material is in a straightforward hard rock musical direction. Also, there are no ballads included. There's a total of 11 tracks, and a couple of them are cover tunes--those being "Generation Landslide" from Alice Cooper and "(This Ain't) The Summer of Love" from Blue Öyster Cult. The album's musicianship is tight and precise, while the songwriting and production are good. Various musicians play on the album. The guitar playing throughout is talented and energetic. There are some cool guitar riffs and well-constructed solos. Joey Scott does a really nice job with the drums, too. Lizzy Borden's vocals are just as cool as they were on past albums. He's truly a unique and dramatic vocalist, and I've never heard another singer that even resembles him. The background vocals are also satisfying throughout. Some of the tracks that I like are "Hell Is for Heroes" and "The World Is Mine." Two songs that are somewhat different from the others are "Zanzibar" and "We Only Come Out at Night." "Zanzibar" is an interesting straight-ahead hard rocker that contains some light experimentation. A sitar is played by guitarist Alex Nelson. The sitar provides an exotic atmosphere. "We Only Come Out at Night" is a heavy tune that's in an industrial metal musical direction. It's a good track, and the guitar playing is thick and metallic. The CD booklet contains the lyrics to nine of the songs--lyrics aren't included for the two cover tunes. The song lyrics and the cover art are interesting. Anybody that's been a fan of Lizzy Borden in the past should find Deal with the Devil to be an energetic and pretty good album--it's quite similar to the other releases. Worth a listen.
