"Industrial Christ" and "All We Are" are straightforward tunes that sound like something that could easily fit on the Scarecrow Messiah album. Both tunes are a good way to begin Tsar Bomba. Much like Relient K's Forget and Not Slow Down, Bride has many small instrumental tracks on album ("Prokofiev," "1973," "Bach Minuet," etc.). "Never" is a song that covers issues such as people underestimating what they don't know such as the power of God. The sound is very reminiscent of Alice in Chain's "Man in the Box."
Later, the album provides a more melodious song, "Downward," complete with piano accompaniment. It's one of Bride's most memorable ballads in recent years since "Goodbye" on Snakes in the Playground. Bride seems to have a well balanced album here as they continue the album by offering songs, "Look in My Head," "We Are the People," and "When I was a Kid" that would easily please fans from the past.
Unlike musicians from older generations, Bride has given listeners something that is truly unique and different than past projects. Tsar Bomba doesn't have a tired sound that many bands seem to invoke after 20 years. Bride brings the diehard fans something to appreciate and some material that might astound listeners considering the band's age. This could be Bride's best album since Scarecrow Messiah. Fans of Bride, Alice in Chains, and Disciple should appreciate this massive 67-minute event.- Review date: 1/10/10, written by Wayne Myatt of Jesusfreakhideout.com
