Sevendust released their second studio album, Home on August 24, 1999. The album peaked at number 19 on the Billboard 200 and remained in the top 200 for fourteen weeks. It also received a Gold certification in May 2000.
Right off the bat I realized they had some very interesting song titles. "Rumble Fish", "Licking Cream", and "Waffle"? What were they thinking....? The titles didn't exactly go with the songs, and two of the three songs I just mentioned were singles for the album. Though the first one was actually, "Denial."
"Waffle", as weird as this sentence is going to sound, is beautiful. Its about looking for the bright side, while you're feeling melancholy. You feel useless, and there's no meaning at all in life. This is a cry for help, for something to show itself to you and make things seem better again. "Bring me a light. Make my life worth something more. Show me a light, bring a light."
As for "Rumble Fish", which sounds a bit like a weird, fish shaped adult toy, it actually seems to be encouraging someone to get away from a person who's doing them harm. I'm not doing the track justice, just go listen to it.
Honestly, they did a very good job on picking singles, because the singles are songs that stand out on the album. There is another I wanted to mention though, and that one was "Headspace." It tells the story of the internal battle, and struggling with something someone said to hurt you. You hear the pain and the passion, and that makes it rather beautiful.
Its a great work that helped lend a hand in the legacy Sevendust has created. Since the release of this album, they have released nine more albums. One of which is acoustic!
