    1-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizkit Has Always Sucked
    I don't get it. Some people usually like the first Limp Bizkit album, "Three Dollar Bill, Yall$", and they avoid the rest. Yes, "Three Dollar Bill, Yall$" is underrated, but it is good? No. It's not really that different from all of the other Limp Bizkit releases (especially this P.O.S.). Fred Durst can't rap worth crap on ANY record. Just listen to this crap record and listen to "Three Dollar Bill". Really, it's not that different. Limp Bizkit has always been terrible. You may not agree with me, but the musicians have no talent and Fred Durst ruins everything. Just because CD's are underrated doesn't mean that they're always good.

    If you want some good rap-metal, get these records instead:

    Rage Against The Machine - self-titled
    One Minute Silence - Available In All Colors
    Orange 9mm - Driver Not Included
    Faith No More - The Real Thing
    Anthrax - I'm The Man EP
    Candiria - 300 Percent Density
    E.Town Concrete - The Second Coming
    Downset - self-titled

    Or see my Listmania list called "Rap Metal That Doesn't Suck". Limp Bizkit has always been terrible.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Behind Blue Eyes ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
    Cheap-Trick - When you get nothing else to put in your worthless album, add a cover version of a popular song.. everyone else now does it, why would LimpBizkit stay away -"Behind Blue Eyes" is the result..

    The worst-rock-band-of-all-time's worst album. Copycats !! I can't stand that voice (same goes to Linkin Park)..if Backstreet boys could afford buying a couple of guitars and gazettes, then even they could have been more rocking than Bizkit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good cd
    i really dont no wat everyones problem is with limp bizkit, i like them and this cd is actually really good, fred sings in it for once. i really cant understand why everyone hates this band, i love this cd. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Despite the advent of the '00s, thoroughly blunted longhairs wearing three-quarter-length T-shirts still boot around the suburbs in painted vans listening to roaring metal. Fittingly, a whole new crop of post-Dazed and Confused-era stoner rockers--Fu Manchu, Monster Magnet, and arguably the kings of them all, Queens of the Stone Age--provide a shredding contemporary score for righteous three-finger devil salutes. On Songs for the Deaf, core members bassist Nick Oliveri and singer-guitarist Josh Homme (also see Kyuss) balance pure guitar-induced carnage with more complex, though no less aggressive, speed rock that whips by so fast it creates its own breeze. Opening with the 90-second "The Real Song for the Deaf"--a cheeky and amorphous bit of bloopy electronica quite possibly recorded at the bottom of a swimming pool--the disc explodes with track two, a toxic squall of power chords and now-classic Olivera death howls. It's here the album's recurring concept/conceit is introduced as a generic-sounding announcer from L.A.'s "Clone" radio spits out some psychobabble reinforcing the tired if true cliché that commercial radio stinks. Similar mock broadcasts surface elsewhere, but they're easily forgivable, given the bounty on offer. Homme-powered tracks dominate--the lurching, weirdly springy "No One Knows" is a kind of "Monster Mash" for grownups; the vocal harmony-driven "The Sky Is Falling" is almost dreamy until a small army of guitars surges to the front lines to begin firing. And a lyrically winking hidden track, "Mosquito Song," is either an in-joke of ridiculous proportions or a declarative statement about the level of musicianship lurking just beneath the quaking veneer of the Queens' sound. Either way, genuine excitement comes early and often on Songs for the Deaf. It's a remarkable achievement--a hard rock record so good that it immediately evokes a conspiratorial fervor that makes you want to tell everyone you can about it. Er, job done. --Kim Hughes ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A musical dream
    This cd is one of the few cds that is great all the way through. The only filler is the amusing radio DJs talking about random crap. The drumming is absolutely brilliant - Dave Grohl is the man. The vocals are also amazing, creating a mixture of darkness and light. Overall great album - this one has stayed in my car for over 2 years now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars SO Original , So Amazing, So Good
    This is one of the best albums i have ever heard. It rocks hard the whole way through. the only bad song is six shooter. So orginal. This is a MUST buy it really its that damn good. Classic

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best rock records you'll ever lay your ears on.
    Queens are an interesting band because they don't really follow trend or date, they just try to write stuff that they think is cool. Well, I think it's cool too. This album is their masterpiece to date. Great songs, tight dirty sound, and stellar performances by all involved. Josh Homme is very apt at putting together great musicians who can really create a chemistry. Lanegan sounds awesome and really adds a nice color to the songs he's on. 'Former' bass player Nick Oliveri is rabid and screaming his own sonic contributions and cooler than ever.

    As for their drummer on this album, the 'Too Damn Talented For His Own Good' Dave Grohl, well let's just say that his drumming on this record is just plain perfectly sick. Tight, energetic, tasteful and always adding to the songs. It's guys like Grohl that make musicians like me pissed off. In a good way though.

    If you like original, guitar heavy, atmospheric rock then look no further. As far as I'm concerned this is the best rock album put out in the last 5-10 years. Yeah, it's that good. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Where Rancid's eponymous 2000 album saw the band attempting to re-seize the moral high ground by aping the hardcore sound of the early 1980s, Indestructible is a return to the eclectic mix of their own breakthrough album And Out Come the Wolves. Thus "Red Hot Moon" and "Memphis" are melancholy, Clash-inspired grooves, "Arrested in Shanghai" and "Back Up Against the Wall" are melodic pop rock, while "Out of Control" and "Born Frustrated" are screaming punk assaults. Their politics, naturally, remain sound, as evinced by "Ivory Coast" and the anti-violence anthem "Spirit of '87". --Dominic Wills ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don'ttrust all the whiny fake punks!!!
    First of all don't get suckered in by these kids who claim to be old school Rancid fans, they aren't.Anyone who buys lemon shampoo on Amazon and listens to Thursday probably shouldn't be commenting on how un-punk Rancid is.This is actually a really strong Rancid record.It has a good mix of songs.You will hear horns, piano, rockabilly gutiar, and some heavy punk chords.Imagine that!!! Actual musicanship!!!Sorry if your pissed that Rancid isn't making Lets Go over and over again.I think about how the Clash evolved and I just have to laugh, because these same "internet punks" would have hated London Calling and Sandanista.So if you like The Clash, Gene Vincent, The Specials, Dub reggae, and early 80's hardcore buy this record.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stop Crying
    On a lot of forums, you see people complaining and crying that "Rancid lost thier edege..." That's B.S. All Rancid did with this album was re-emerge with thier classically eclectic sound. On "Life Won't Wait..." the band went totally ska/reggae, while "2000" was hardcore punk. This is a retreat to the mixed punk/ska style Rancid is famous for, and I applaud the effort. Songs like "Spirit of '87" and "stay out of control" kick the door down with punk energy, "Red Hot Moon" is a sad and telling story of the life of a doomed street kid, and "The other Side" is a touching tribute to Lars' deceased brother. The record on the whole is like a punch in the teeth you just want more of, keep on playing boys!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst yet...
    Before I get judged, I'd like to say that I've been listening to Rancid for over 10 years.I've loved all thier albums but this one leaves me cold.I'm not saying they 'sold out'. That would be impossible as how they're all already filthy rich and have changed thier styles on almost every album.(Like Green Day, I'd say they simply went in a different direction.If you change you're style for the sake of change it's not selling out.You might as well say they sold out with Life Won't Wait then, because it had such heavy ska tones.)

    Anyway, back to this album.At first I thought it was a new Transplants album.Where is Lars?Remember how they used to -share- lyrics and Lars sang lead on about half the songs?Remember when his vocals weren't reduced to back up choruses and "whoa whoa whoas"?The musical style is just like the Transplants.The lyrics are, frankly, pathetic.They sound like Cat in The Hat rhymes.it's that same, let's-string-words-together-cause-they-rhyme Transplants rapping style.Barf.What happened to writing songs about things that -meant- something to you?Why, on the album right before this one, didn't Tim sing "I hate your band / you understand / you got no passion / it's all fashion"?Way to go Tim.Hope you're having fun hanging with the biggest all-fashion-no-passion "punks" (and I use the term loosely as possible) of the decade, Good Charlotte.he's lost it somewhere and it makes me sad.

    Had this cd been released by some newbie punk band I would have said it sucked.Just because I'm a fan of Rancid's doesn't mean I have to declare everything they put out as 'the greatest'.I'm not averse to different kinds of music, or bands who change their style.I rock out to Rainer Maria and Oxymoron and Bacilos.My musical taste runs across the board.Hell, I even liked The Transplant CD (well, about half of it).And if Tim wants to make another, go ahead.Just don't label it as a Rancid CD this time.

    Indestructible: 0 out of 5
    Rancid (2004): 5 out of 5
    The Transplants: 3 out of 5
    Lars & The Bastards: 5 out of 5

    I'm still a rancid fan by all rights, in fact I was lsitening to "Let's Go" as I wrote this.But this album, well, it can go straight to the dump for all I care.

    I guess I never realized that what I liked most about Rancid wasn't Tim the frontman.It was what Lars brought, that surge of street punk, which sadly is absent from this album. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Though Cold's music has become more melodic and accessible, that doesn'tmean that they've turned over a new leaf. Scratch the surface and you'll findthese Florida soreheads are still mad at the world, but happily able to channel that rage into compelling, brainy head-banging. In fact, it wouldn't be going too far to call them post-alt-metal Beck, what with their collage of disparate sounds and effects and their self-referential declarations, mimicking the diminutive singer's early outings: "I'm a loner / I'm a loser / I'm a winner in my own mind / I'm a bad one / I'm a good one / I'm a sick one with a smile." But they're not just a hardened bunch of nihilists. Their bleak worldview is rescued by a staunch sense of self and the quaint but sweet notion of the healing power of love. The affection of a good, but flawed woman is pervasive on the album's 13 tracks. With Scooter Ward's powerful vocals, inventive guitar interplay, and Sam McCandless' nonstop primal bashing, Cold, after 15 years together, are outshining mentors Limp Bizkit. --Jaan Uhelszki ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I feel it
    I was amazed after hearing this album for the first time. I feel the pain and heartache portrayed by the band as if it were my own. I loved their second album but Year of the Spider was incredible. It was heartfelt and true. The musical aspects were great also. The drums, guitar, vocals all top noch. My favorite songs are Suffocate, Sad Happy, and Day Seattle Died.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Cold Album yet.
    "Year Of The Spider" didn't have much publicity other than their hit "Stupid Girl" but this album is a materpeiece. I listen to it every time I see it. It's slower than past Cold albums but the songs are more solid. Cold has gotten better with each album and I can't wait for their 4th release. Buy this album, it will not let Cold fans down. Dont listen to the Weezer fan (lol) below.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Same old Cold
    Normally when a band never changes their musical style it tends to get stale, over-used if you will. Using the same guitar riffs and the same drum combinations make people think you're riding on a wave of popularity that you think will only grow if you rehash old material. Cold reuses their riffs and drums in such a way that it sounds fresh and new. This whole CD sounds almost exactly like End Of The World off of their previous release 13 Ways To Bleed On Stage. Scooter's voice and lyrics have yet to be better and the musical backdrop only compliments his vocal stylings better. It took me a couple listens to really grasp what this album brings to the table, but once I did I was hooked. There's not a song on here that doesn't have something catchy about it, a definite plus.

    This CD starts off with Remedy. With good lyrics/vocals mixed with a powerful beat, this song quickly takes you back and reminds you of why you started liking them. Cure My Tragedy (A Letter To God) could possibly be one of the most emotional songs on here. Scooter's voice, in my opinion, is at it's best on this song. This is probably the best song on here. Wasted Years could be considered the ballad of this CD. It's acoustic until the end of the first chorus and then a light drum beat kicks in. This seems to be Scooter's confession to the world. Sad Happy is another highlight on here. This particular song paints you a picture when listened to closely, it tells of an abused teenage girl. To me, it seems that this touches a chord with Scooter because his voice soars through the chorus. The Day Seattle Died is a touching tribute to the late Kurt Cobain. There's more anger in this song than one might expect. While the band never really goes all out and jams, Scooter has a new-found intensity in his voice. The lyrics paint a rather grim picture, it's fitting though. Black Sunday is my personal favorite song on here. There's nothing special here, no punches pulled. Just a traditional Cold song. The final song, Kill The Music Industry, is in no way my favorite song but is worth mentioning. The anger this band has for the music industry is stifling. It's worth a listen just for the razor sharp lyrics.

    A couple of my favorite songs on here are Wasted Years, Sad Happy, The Day Seattle Died, and Black Sunday. While the CD does seem to run together for the first few listens you are greatly rewarded for your patience. If you're a fan of Cold or just rock music with an edge then this release is definitely for you. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'd give it ten if I could
    This is quite possibly one of the best albums of all time. If you're one of the people that's saying that this album sucks because it's "emo", then you couldn't be any further from the truth. First of all, this is not typical "emo". If you want real emo then you need to check out Sunny Day Real Estate. No... this is so much more than emo. This is one of the most lyrically complex albums that you may ever come across. On top of the fantastic lyrics is amazing instrumentation. Although Geoff's voice can be kind of grainy at times, it's extremely emotional and it pulls you in. This album is a necessity to anyone who wants to listen to amazing, complex, and emotional music. This is a must buy.

    theyre post-hardcore. Its sad how so many people can be misinformed. While many of thursdays predecessors(taking back sunday, hawthorne heights, story of the year, dashboard confessional,the get-up kids, etc.) do suck, thursday stands out above all of those bands because theyre not just whining and crying about every single little problem in their life. Thursday has meaningful lyrics. If you want to know what real emo is than go to fourfa.com. If you think emo is just bands like dashboard than youre sadly mistaken. ... Read more
