Although it still retained a fairly hard edge, Gump (named after the hockey player, not Forrest) polished that edge somewhat and the volume was reduced a few notches. The newly-commercial Sons of Freedom racked up video play and some airplay on modern rock stations (notably for the catchy "Call Me"), but something was missing: the sense of menace that was all over the debut. The playing is top-notch, and the songs are pretty good, too, for the most part. It's just not the same, though. Oddly, lead singer Jim Newton changed his name to Jerome James Kingston for this album.
