Phenomenon won Krutch an extremely wide audience by including something for everyone -- while staying true to their hard rock nature, of course. Their melodies are as catchy as pop and their lyrics as syncopated as ska with hip-hop forays, yet they avoid watering it down, retaining the metal you came for. Start with "Phenomenon," "Quicken" and "Rawkfist."
