Drowning Pool Albums Ranked

Drowning Pool is an American rock band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996. The band was named after the 1975 film The Drowning Pool. Since its formation, the band has consisted of guitarist C.J. Pierce, bassist Stevie Benton, and drummer Mike Luce, as well as a revolving cast of vocalists, the latest being Jasen Moreno. After the release of their debut album, Sinner (2001), original vocalist Dave Williams was found dead on August 14, 2002 from heart disease. Jason Jones, who replaced Williams in 2003, recorded one album, Desensitized (2004), but left in 2005 due to musical differences. Ryan McCombs of Chicago-based band SOiL later replaced Jones and released two albums, Full Circle (2007) and Drowning Pool (2010), making it the first time Drowning Pool had not switched singers after just one album. However, McCombs left the band in 2011 to rejoin SOiL. Jasen Moreno was announced as McCombs’ replacement in 2012, and the band has since recorded two albums with him: Resilience (2013) and Hellelujah (2016). Here are all of Drowning Pool albums ranked.

7. Resilience (2013)

“To me ‘Resilience’, the title, really captured what Drowning Pool embodied. As with everyone I was pretty shocked and upset about Dave Williams’ untimely death. Jason Gong Jones remained my second favorite singer but he and the guys didn’t gel so we got Ryan. Full Circle is probably my least favorite of all the albums, being a good album either way, but their second album with Ryan, first singer to appear on a second album for DP, was pretty good. I knew a lot of people who were stocked that they finally had a long term singer and the band and Ryan seemed pretty bonded, then a year or so later, gone.”

6. Loudest Common Denominator (2009)

“Loudest Common Denominator is a good solid live album that is perfect to keep fans happy while they finish recording their new album. Though hardly an album for the sheer fact this album was hardly intended, it’s a good listen, any Drowning Pool fan won’t be displeased.”

5. Hellelujah (2016)

“Hellelujah is a great album. I love the hard hitting riffs in it. Jasen Moreno does and even better job than last time. The whole album is aggressive with one song being softer but still just as great. I give it 5 stars cause it’s what Drowning Pool is all about. Its about time they get the respect they deserve .”

4. Full Circle (2007)

“This album sees the band mature musically and features acoustic guitars and solos that adds greatly to the sound of the band. The acoustic driven songs ‘Reborn’ and ‘Paralysed’ are good examples of this new direction the band took as this listener really enjoys the sound. But fear not as the usual Drowning Pool guitar riff heavy tracks are present on this album like album opener ‘Full Circle’, the single ‘Enemy’ the riff tastic ‘Shame’ the angsty ‘No More’ and the heavy rockers ‘Love’ and ‘Duet’.”

3. Drowning Pool (2010)

“This album is tight, and has a very fast paced tempo, and it starts with a bang, with the song “Let The Sin Begin”.. this album is full of great songs, and it’s hard to really put my finger on one that stands out above the rest, as being the highlight of the album.. for me, the only song i seem to skip by is “Over My Head” – it just doesn’t have anything that reaches out and grabs me, lyrically or musically… the rest of the songs however are simply amazing, and really a step in the right direction for Drowning Pool.”

2. Desensitized (2004)

“This cd is so full of energy and life it just makes you want to go wild. There new singer is great he brings a new vibe to the scene. There song are really fast paced, you might get a ticket if you listen to this in the car. Step up is the best song ever.”

1. Sinner (2001)

“Sinner is 37:30 long with eleven tracks, each one a devastating blend of distorted, chugging riffage and focused anger. Characteristic of Drowning Pool, a wide array of guitar effects are utilized on the album, and you will unquestionably find yourself nodding your head along to each song. Every chorus is impossibly catchy; infectious hooks and melodies abound. I have to admit that the lyrics on Sinner are a weak point, but whatever they lack in quality late singer Dave Williams makes up for by belting out each line with the potency of a shark attack. It doesn’t matter what the songs are saying; Dave makes you believe it.”
