"Maybe I'm being overly harsh, but as far as follow ups go, this is easily one of the biggest let downs I can remember.The first three songs are pretty good by most band standards, but average for Skrew. Listen to Burning in Water/Drowning in Flames, Cold Angel Press and Charlemagne from the first one, or Seeded, Picasso Trigger and Albatross from Dusted, then compare them with She Said, Black Eye and Knotted Twigg from Shadow. It's really amazing how far the mighty have fallen.If that isn't bad enough, the album goes downhill from there.The addition of Overkill's Bobby Gustafson might have been the straw that broke the camel's back. While he's a perfect fit for that band, he clashes with the style of Skrew. Also, it'd not had hurt for Adam to put some more distortion back on his voice.Those who want to check out some great industrial metal can't go wrong by Burning or Dusted. But leave this and Angel Seed XXIII alone.Also, Amazon got the title wrong. A small error, but the title is "Shadow of Doubt.""

"While cruising through a used CD store I came across this for $3.00. I own Skrew's first album "Burning In Water/Drowning In Flame", and it's a mostly decent industrial metal album, produced by Ministry's Al Jourgensen.
"Burning in Water/Drowning In Flame" is a good listen. This record is not. This record tries desperately to be Ministry's "Filth Pig" and fails miserably. After a few listens, "Filth Pig" grows in the listener's ear. After a few listens of "Shadow of Doubt", the listener's ears want to kill themselves.
The vocals are god awful, and I mean they make your least favorite singer sound majestic. Adam uses almost identical vocal "melodies" in practically every song, and the production is flat and irritating.
The worst part about it all, is that the musicians involved sound BORED. While listening, you never EVER get the idea that this band is interested in what they are doing. If they are disinterested, how are we supposed to care about it? There is NO passion in their playing... even the worst musicians can make a decent record if they believe in what they are playing and care about the music they make.
This was the worst $3.00 I ever spent."
Another industrial-metal hellsphere from A. Grossman & Co.

"The third release from the man who brought you 1992's industrial-metal masterpiece, "Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame", this album is a must for the fans. The guitar is a bit overdosed this time around, but it has some of the coolest backing electronics I have ever heard (ex. the electro back build in "Black Eye"). The vocals are also much less distorted than on previous releases, but lyrically just as twisted, and the drums just thunder and devastate. Basically, a good apocalyptic onslaught of brutal electro-metal. If you're into Ministry, Godflesh, KMFDM, Chainsaws.And.Children, Rammstein, Static-X, etc etc...this is a definite record to invest in."
