Norma Jean Debuts With Gusto| Posted March 28, 2013
Norma Jean's debut album sets the groundwork for what the band would offer us in the then future. Corey's signature scream, the odd syncopation with the instruments, and the brutal sound that would carry them through the Solid State years. This album also seems to be influential in the way it was recorded. The band decided here to record the album live and without the use of computers, something the band The Chariot would later do for their debut album. Recording this way makes the album feel raw and unique. This album is a great and unique way to get your band's name out there.
My favorite norma jean album| Posted September 05, 2008
Josh Scogin was awesome in Norma Jean, this by far their best album. Then Scogin left and Norma Jean just wasn't as good any more. This is a great album
I generally hate Aaron Weiss's vocals but they're ok on Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste
Great| Posted August 15, 2008
As always, Norma Jean's sound and energy are astounding. I used to hate their chaotic music, but now I love the style. I may still be at a loss as to what the lyrics mean, but you can't deny that the music is astounding. And Aaron Weiss ((mewithoutYou))'s guest vocals fit surprisingly well into 'Memphis Will Be Laid to Waste'.

Norma Jean not only deliver the goods on this album, they stuff metal in the face of people who think Christian music cant rock. It doesn't matter whether or not you are Christian.

With Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child as a first album,Norma Jean really gave themselves a great first impression. Josh Scogin's voice adapts wonderfully to Norma Jean's music!
Definitely an excellent buy
