Make Yourself
Audio CD (26 October, 1999)
list price: $13.98 -- our price: $9.99
(price subject to change: see help)
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

Young, aggro, and from Los Angeles--it's tempting to put Incubus in the already crowded category populated by Korn, System of a Down, and their other loud and heavy brethren. But that would sell Incubus short, because Make Yourself, the quintet's sophomore album, is a strong progression beyond their 1997 debut, S.C.I.E.N.C.E.. More like Faith No More than Limp Bizkit, Incubus still have that teen-mosh appeal, though the songwriting and instrumentation on Make Yourself is diverse and thoughtful, both lyrically and musically. "Drive" is an easygoing, slightly trippy acoustic-based outing, while oddball scratching (courtesy of DJ Chris Kilmore) and trip-hop funkiness make "Battlestar Scralatchtica" aptly titled. "Nowhere Fast" is vaguely 311-ish with a reggae tinge and lovely melodic interludes, in contrast to the furious intensity of "Out from Under," which gives Make Yourself a surprisingly cohesive diversity that's hard to categorize. Ultimately, singer Brandon Boyd is not a vocal genius, but lyrically and in performance, he's sensitive, charismatic, and unique. Ditto for the 13 cuts that make up Make Yourself. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

Editorial Review

Watch out, mom and dad. If you don't treat your kids right, they're gonna up and start an alt-metal band to share the angst you've brought on them with the world. After all, who needs therapy when you've got a million kids hearing your pain on MTV? Staind has never been a band to gloss over personal issues. They've given their albums names like Torment and Dysfunction, and their lyrics delve deep into singer Aaron Lewis' difficult past. Contrary to the title, Staind's third release, Break the Cycle, sticks with the tormented cycle, covering the same themes of heartbreak, self-doubt, and broken homes.

Lewis has almost three decades of personal material to mine, and as familiar as his issues are, Break the Cycle still feels like a new, honest look into difficulties that can hit people across the board. "Waste," a song written to a fan who committed suicide, is particularly poignant as it grabbles with Lewis's empathy and anger for a boy he's never met. "Outside" is another album standout. It's a slower, partially acoustic number that builds on its own emotion. The songs on Break the Cycle are drenched in melancholy melodies and slow, heavy riffs typical of the sensitive side of the alt-rock genre. Lewis sometimes breaks out into either a hearty yell or a throaty gurgle that sounds like the devil vomiting ("Can't Believe"), but the best songs keep his passion a little more controlled. You've probably heard rock like Break the Cycle piping from mainstream radio stations already, but Lewis's ability to turn his breakdowns into his art should capture a new round of fans happy to find kindred spirits in the band. --Jennifer Maerz ...

No Name Face
Audio CD (31 October, 2000)
list price: $18.98 -- our price: $9.99

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

No Name Face is an auspicious debut from a band seemingly made to rule the airwaves. The insinuating melodies that mark Lifehouse's radio-friendly sound are not unlike those of matchbox twenty or Live in their softer moments. From the first single, "Hanging by a Moment," to the emotive and uplifting "Quasimodo" and the wonderful "Trying" (think Crowded House at their lilting best), Lifehouse are self-possessed and focused. Young singer-songwriter Jason Wade (the son of two ministers) imbues Lifehouse's vibe with a spiritual quality that's never heavy-handed, delivering the goods with the authority of an experienced troubadour. No Name Face may be a first offering from a young band, but it looks to signal the beginning of an estimable career. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

Everything about Tool's fourth album is an experience, starting with the packaging, which consists of liner credits printed on a translucent plastic sleeve over the CD and a booklet that layers anatomical representations atop one another--the first page pictures musculature and blood vessels; the next, bones; the third, internal organs; and so on. It's worth describing the packaging of Lateralus because it says much about the astonishing music within. Maynard James Keenan and company understand the expectations riding on this much-anticipated release and they've delivered the goods! While it remains in the Tool tradition of trance-inducing progressive metal, Lateralus is tighter, clearer, crisper, and all around a notch above their admirable previous releases. Aenima was marred by muddy production and a certain predictability. Undertow had a cleaner sound but wasn't as confident or adventurous. With Lateralus, Tool have raised an already lofty bar still higher by coming up with a collection that kicks major ass. --Genevieve Williams ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

It may be too cynical to assume Hybrid Theory changed its name to Linkin Park in order to appear right next to Limp Bizkit in your local record bin. But rock-rap workouts like "One Step Closer" and "Papercut" do make Linkin Park a comfortable fit with Fred Durst and his ilk. Producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Lit, Eve 6) and twin vocal threats Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda serve up industrial-strength rap and rock melodicism with equal aplomb on this woulda-been-self-titled debut effort. "Points of Authority" aims to sound like Trent Reznor wanking it up with Lars and company, whereas guitarist Brad Delson's Edge-y harmonics help "In the End" and "Pushing Me Away" evoke a dark romanticism akin to A Perfect Circle. Curiously, the band gets by with no bass player, while sample-happy DJ Joseph Hahn's step into the spotlight on the instrumental "Cure for the Itch" suggests a potential for eclecticism that could help Linkin Park outlive its seemingly transient genre. --Bill Forman ...

Audio CD (15 May, 2001)
list price: $13.98 -- our price: $12.99
(price subject to change: see help)
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

Weezer, those geek rockers who topped mid-'90s charts with those oh-so-precious pop fables "Undone (The Sweater Song)" and "Buddy Holly," were almost undone by 1997's bombastic Pinkerton. Their sophomore release turned its back on the band's clean-cut debut, with a thrash approach more influenced by Sabbath and Kiss than the Beach Boys. On their third album (self-titled, like their first, but referred to as the "Green Album"), the band makes a concentrated effort to return to anthemic '60s punky pop, demonstrating that, for Weezer at least, it's rather easy being green. In fact, one could say they're almost as green as Green Day, especially on "Knockdown Dragout." At their best, Weezer show such boundless energy and gleeful aplomb that you'd swear you were listening to a lost Badfinger album. Conversely, Rivers Cuomo's twisted genius makes its way onto the anxious and paranoid "Hash Pipe" and the jittery "Glorious Days," making the "Green Album" the most absorbing and rounded vision from these pop masters yet. --Jaan Uhelszki ...

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

If you've heard Blink 182, the Offspring, or Green Day, you've heard Sum 41, with or without All Killer No Filler. The Canadian quartet's California punk formula is a well-worn one that seems to be working--all the way from the store to the Warped Tour. Set poppy, three-chord rock to hyperactive speeds, write songs about why you don't give a shit, and play up your juvenile-delinquent side for all it's worth (check out the "Going, Going, Gonorrhea" video with the band "doing all the dangerous and immature stuff you shouldn't try from the safety of your own home"). Of course, this has all been done before and will continue to be rehashed again as long as a silly, snotty attitude brings in the record company gold. While these punks are hardly walking down the block less traveled, they still packed All Killer full of hooks that should snag modern rock radio listeners. Peppy sing-along choruses, rolling drum solos, and guitar-driven anthems uncork the energy and brightly color this fast-moving, TRL-friendly disc. --Jennifer Maerz ... Read more

Audio CD (06 March, 2001)

(price subject to change: see help)
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

Five years before the release of ANThology, Alien Ant Farm befriended Papa Roach, then fellow strugglers on the California club circuit. And so AAF wound up signing to Papa Roach's New Noise Records. AAF have furthermore strengthened their Roach connection by employing Jay Baumgardner, producer of their benefactors' Infest, to lend sheen to the noise. The result doesn't show a tremendous range, but is generally excellent, with sweeping, soaring guitars ("Whisper," "Stranded") and shuddering riffs ("Wish"), putting one in mind of a less disturbing version of Alice in Chains. Standouts include the opener, "Courage," led by Mike Cosgrove's off-kilter clatter and Dryden Mitchell's winding lyrics; a chopping, pleading cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal"; and the revved up "Flesh and Bone." With the tense, Pearl Jam-like "Attitude," AAF attempt to change the mood and tempo, and one hopes they'll continue such sonic explorations. For now, ANThology is a palatable aperitif. --Dominic Wills ... Read more

Something Like Human
Audio CD (19 September, 2000)
list price: $13.98
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

Editorial Review

In Something Like Human, the moody and brutally emotional rock band Fuel has a solid follow-up to their platinum Sunburn disc from 1998. Produced by Ben Grosse (Filter, Vertical Horizon) and coproduced by Fuel guitarist-songwriter Carl Bell, Something Like Human picks up where Sunburn left off, both musically and emotionally. From Brett Scallions's heart-wrenching vocal performance on the CD's first single, "Hemorrhage (in My Hands)," with its mournful reflections to the "Shimmer"-like "Slow," the bleak, dark temperament that characterized Sunburn is continued. Even seemingly upbeat moments are buried deep in paranoia ("Knives") or leave a bitter taste ("Solace"). Not as dirge-heavy as Alice in Chains (though "Down" sounds like that band) or as commercially viable as Creed, Fuel nonetheless have the strong songs and melodies to make their doleful musical visions eminently memorable and quietly cool. --Katherine Turman ...

Those who have followed Moby's career are familiar by now with his deep convictions and spiritual connection. On his 1999 release, Play, he celebrates his faith in a masterful, unobtrusive way, channeling gospel and other inspirational samples through beats so earthy they could grow grass on a cement dance floor. It's impossible to separate the joy of the message from the joy of the grooves. --Beth Massa ... Read more

Editorial Review

From Run-D.M.C.'s unlikely courtship of Aerosmith to Anthrax's union with Public Enemy, seemingly polar opposites have spawned a whole musical genre popularized by the likes of Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Kid Rock. Crazy Town's The Gift of the Game neatly slots into the rap-rock category. They obviously carry some clout, amassing an impressive guest roster for a debut album, including godfathers of the scene Red Hot Chili Peppers on stand-out track "Butterfly" and KRS-One on the storming "B-Boy 2000." As debut albums go, this is about as accomplished and cocksure as you get. --Helen Marquis ... Read more

Geez, what a ripoff. This hockey disc is very dynamic and can break into three hockey discs, but 15 bucks for this? No thanks.

Wait a minute, this isn't a hockey disc, it's a CD!

4-0 out of 5 stars Died Young
Critics killed this band. Crazy Town is an awsome band of the Rock/Rap scene and that scene is sadly dieing out despite, Linkin Park which has turned into complete crap. Crazy Town came out at the wrong time and chose the wrong single "Butterfly" that just killed them. I love this CD and if you like the rock/rap scene you'll enjoy "THe Gift Of Game."

2-0 out of 5 stars a couple of highlights, but mostly lowlights
crazy town burst onto the scene with the cringeworthy "butterfly" in 2001, and sold over a million copies of this their debut.while "darkhorse" saw the band wither away their rap and hip hop influence, "giftof game" focuses heavily on shifty and epics duel rapping style, with a lot of turntable effects thrown in.guitars are crunchy at times, and very basic, while drum work (if used) is limited in range.epic has a much smoother voice than shifty, and you can notice it.overall this cd is nothing special, and sucks alot of the time."toxic" is a pretty cool song, but shifty's voice in the chorus sends it grating up your spine."darkside" is ok for like 30 seconds, while "bboy 2000" is good for the first two minutes, before it gets lost in a mellowdrone state.if you like cheesy rap and cheesy rock slammed head on, this is for you. ...

THIS IS THE SONG THAT INTRODUCED ME TO THIS GREAT BAND. I HAVE YET TO PICK UP AN ALBUM BY THESE GUYS. THIS SONG ROCKS. IT HAS GOOD LYRICS, GOOD VOCALS, GOOD GUITAR RIFFS, AND IT'S LOT OF FUN TO LISTEN TO. I DEFINITELY HAVE TO CHECK ''HYBRID THEORY'' & ''METEORA'' SOMETIME VERY SOON. ALL ROCK FANS NEED TO HEAR THIS SONG.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT SINGLE!!!!!
Linkin Park is the best band ever!! I am completely obsessed with them!! Chester and Mike are really cool!! I'm gonnaget this CD as soon as I possibly can!!!!!

One Step Closer- A REALLY cool song, probably an average song from Linkin Park. I just LOVE the screaming bridges in this song!!!-"SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and "SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I especially like the last one, "SSSSSSHHHHHUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

My December- This is a great song- a little on the slow side, but thats ok, because itzprobably a relaxing break for Chester from screaming "shut up", and it proves that he can do a slow song like that.

High Voltage- A really cool song- itz all rap- itz all Mike. Yeahhh, Mike!

Editorial Review

Following Staind's footsteps, Nickelback make the personal public and vent a history of frustration and resentment to melodic hard rock. The band's second album, Silver Side Up, starts with "Never Again," an angry tirade against domestic violence that sheds light on the issue without too much sap or sentiment. The album's catchy radio hit "How You Remind Me" and the song "Woke Up This Morning" tell of rotting relationships, while other tracks touch on damaged hope and lost dreams. The post-grunge, alt-metal combo backing these songs packs as strong a punch as the lyrical material, going hard with lots of hooks. The additional slide guitar on "Hangnail" and sludgy, alt-metal riffs on "Hollywood," "Money Bought," and "Where Do I Hide" add a little meat to the alt-rock bones on Silver, elevating Nickelback above the heap of copycat rockers clogging the airwaves. --Jennifer Maerz ...

first track is a killer-eye opener. second track to the end keeps the rock flowing. buy it, listen to it, feel the intensity and emotion of this timeless album

1-0 out of 5 stars Hey, Didn't Grunge Die In 1994?
Grunge ended in 1994 after Kurt Cobain committed suicide. Here's some proof: Alice In Chain's 1995 album was their swansong, Soundgarden focused on a different style for "Down On The Upside", and Pearl Jam...I like the stuff off their first four albums, everything else is trash.

I should be talking about the CD now. Nickelback failed yet again to bring back grunge. What did they accomplish? They sold out and had their songs played on pop radio stations and TRL. Actually, that was the song called "How You Remind Me". Why did Roadrunner records sign these guys? I love most of the artists on Roadrunner, like Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, Slipknot, Fear Factory, you know, all the heavy metal stuff. But Nickelback? What was Roadrunner thinking? Roadrunner just made one mistake, and I forgive them for that.

Nickelback is terrible. I hate this band very much. When they split up like Creed did, I will be glad. Puddle of Mudd also sucks as well, along with Sinch (thank God Roadrunner dropped them) and whoever makes poser grunge.

1-0 out of 5 stars Chad's voice drive me WIIIIILLLLLLDDDDDD!!!!!
Starting off with the good- Let me just say that this has got to be the best cd ever made. Nickelback's music makes me feel great. I would have to say my favorite tracks are ' Look What Your Money Bought ' because it gets me bouncing and 'Hollywood' because it's catchy and plus Hollywood is good. I actually went to one of my good friend's(76year old jimmy magee) parties and it was soooo fun. We popped pop corn and rented movies. Then his mother ordered us a pizza. Get this, we got to stay up past our bedtime's (9:30) we stayed up to at least 10:03. I strongly suggest this cd for having a cool time. Warning!I was beaten badly when his mother came home while we beganthrowing another unauthorised wild house-party in jimmy's house whilst listening to this. Crazy Crazy Crazy. For some reason Chad's girly voice seems to make me go bananas in pyjamas.Truly this is one of the best albums in the history of this great nation, and it would be un-American to pass on such a fine collection of songs.

yeah hey, all you Chad haters, you all wrong. your'e lame enought to be critisizing him. hey, he makes more bling bling then you'll ever make! instead of making fun of him, u lowlife idiots, why don't you go and do something good for a change....go and kiss his @$$...... This is a great, vibrant and energized bubblegum mix of music for young children - my 7 year old has had it for over a year and still loves it. My neighbor, as a result, plans on getting it for her 8 and 6 year old girls because they love it as well. The writer before me was OBVIOUSLY writing a joke of some sort about the album, a poor joke at that

Now for the bad, If you listen to his album, you'll laugh so hard at Chad's attempt to rap that you'll cry. You shouldn't even have attempted it, Chad. Go sit in a corner and pick your nose, tease little girls, play with toys...just leave the rapping to the grown-ups. The only reason this little boy has sold ANY albums at all is due to air-headed pre-pubescent girls who are too googly-eyed over anything Chad to realize how much this attempt just plain SUX, and wouldn't know what real RAP or real MUSIC is if it hit them, anyway. My little great grandson paid 13.98 for this CD at Wal-Mart 3 weeks ago and sold it at our yard sale for 2.50 1 week later. TAKE A Hint. Chad has a voice as squeaky as a little girl age 8. Just another white suburban man being a hip hop wanna be--which makes his "all american white man" album cover even more comical and ironic. And I'm sure he has a lot of street credibility "rapping" about sleep overs, bed wetting, and Pokemon cards. He can't sing either--I bet he is really bad without all those Mickey Mouse Club background singers drowning him out and giving the impression he can actually carry a tune.

Now for the ugly,Chad Kroger should just take the money he made on this lump of feces to go to DisneyWorld and meet up with Mickey Mouse, their voices sound the same. Unless you're a fan of Alvin & The Chipmunks, don't buy this. Save your money for real music. Stop judging so called "artists" on look, and judge on talent. Buying their records only make them more bloated and narcissistic than they already are. Ooooh, Narcissistic, what a big word. You know, these little 12-year-old girls who "luv" Chad are really pathetic. They're really dumb, they can't even spell. They say he has a "great" voice, and they wanna marry him! But does cHAD know about that? He's pathetic and so are his fans

Editorial Review

Their formula is simple enough--equal parts teenage humor and brattiness combined with infectious guitar hooks that just beg to be cranked up on the stereo. But with Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, the guys in Blink 182 may have delivered their best album to date, a punk-pop fusion that's so consistent you'll wonder which of the 13 tracks will become radio hits (any has the chance, really). Yes, as with Dude Ranch and Enema of the State, the songs here revolve around falling in love ("The Rock Show," "First Date"), falling out of love ("Online Songs," "Happy Holidays, You Bastard"), and plenty of other ways to kill time while away from school ("Reckless Abandon"). And yes, these guitar-driven songs all pretty much sound the same, but Take Off never gets boring. There's too much nervous energy here, too many slight variations in the arrangements, and too many hilarious lyrics that you won't want to miss. Parents may remember that the Buzzcocks used this same shtick in the late '70s, older siblings may remember that Green Day did it well not so many years ago, but Blink fans know that their band is more clever than anyone else playing today. The bonus tracks are throwaways, but that's OK--the threesome have given us plenty to bop our heads to here. --Jason Verlinde ... Read more

So listen, do you think there is anyone out there who knows about punk rock who believes Blink 182 were punk rock?I doubt it.I was playing at CBGB's in the late 70's/early 80's in proper punk bands and one thing I know is that anyone who analyzes "what is punk and what isn't" doen not have a clue.This is a great album of well crafted pop-punk songs.It is well produced pop music with punk influences.Nuff said...

1-0 out of 5 stars LOOK HERE!!
(I'm not really a kid, I just don't have an account)

For the past ten years punk has been decaying and loosing what it really is. Remember in the 80's when the Dead Kennidys used to play? They were rebellious and right to the point with their music.

It has all changed since then. Punk is no longer punk it is pop, and there is no way blink-182 is punk. They are washed up posers and thank god they broke up. As we all know the only listeners of them are little kids that try to impress their friends by buying this album. But not only are the listeners kids but so is the band, I think that is pathetic that thirty-year old grown men haven't grown up yet. What my age again? It's 32 numb nuts. I wish that MTV never existed so that we would n't have to know about garbage bands like blink-182 and Good Charlotte. To suit my
case I would like you to please scroll down and look at some of the other reviews, the only ones rated 5 or 4 stars are by kids. Who else? There is no way this band is rebellious as well. Do you think that Roller Coaster or Online Songs sound rebellious, Ihope not! Also they're not straight to the point with their music. If you have watched an episode of Meet the Barkers or even just listened to even one of their songs you can tell they are all simpletons and need to write 4 or 5 songs just to convey a simple message. They way this band is represented as is just horrid and out of context. Do you think that Travis Barker is great parent? He isn't, in fact he doesn't know one good thing about parenting. The way society is set up today lets hardworking not get any credit and the idiotic get the most credit. For example, George W. Bush.

Editorial Review

The joke's starting to look a little worn around the edges. It's facile to observe that the people who toss the phrase "family values" around don't have Limp Bizkit, Korn, Filter, or Primus in mind when they talk about wholesome entertainment. Well, duh. That said, this a solid collection for those who like the aforementioned bands and their allies, though just about all of this stuff is available in other versions. One highlight is Staind's heavy-duty "Mudshovel," though the best performances overall are from Limp Bizkit, which explains why they provide 4 of the 16 tracks on the album and no other act serves up more than 2. Tracks from Method Man and the Crystal Method weirdly break up the metal that dominates, and there's the obligatory acoustic bonus track, featuring Aaron Lewis of Staind and Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. --Genevieve Williams ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good bands, decent collection.
I would think this would appeal mostly to those who saw this tour, but it's still a good disc. I don't like it as much as the 1998 tour, but it's still good. "Limp Bizkit" dominates this collection, but there's still good songs from "Primus", "Staind", and "The Crystal Method". The live "Outside" is the bonus song here, and "Durst" also covers "I Would For You", which is an old "Jane's Addiction" song, though it's not near as great as the original. Overall this is good if you like the bands, otherwise it doesn't have much "Value".

3-0 out of 5 stars hmmm...
"Family values" is pretty good live album that features some most shining alternative/metal stars from end of century.of course Staind's "Mudshovel" or Primus "Laquer head" are great as other tracks but the appearance of Method man and redman is quite scary.And Korn's is not sounding so good on here,without a kick.they had a bad day or what?
also the sound is not superb.bass is vanishing somewhere or it tottaly blows your speakers out so you can't hear other instruments.if the production was better than i would give it 1 star more.also - why do we need it? tracks are all like studio versions (except fred durst's "I would for you" that appears only on this cd) and you can get them with better sound on other compilation albums...
well i have got mixed feelings about it.a good compilation from this tournee.i mean,fans will buy it but i wuoldn't call it a great album.just a compilation.not the strongest one around...

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent little package.
Seeing how I have had this CD for two and a half years now and have reviewed the other two Family Values live discs (1998, 2001), I figured what better time than now to review the 1999 disc which, despite it's shortcomings, delivers a great sounding live show. Before I go on in this review, I should mention how crisp and clear the sound quality is on all of the songs. If only all live albums could sound this good.

The headliners in 1999 were Limp Bizkit, who after being the opening act on the 1998 tour, had finally reached superstardom with two multi-platinum albums under their belts. And what better time than before their 15 minutes of fame was over for them to headline. Really, the band is in top-form on here. All of the LB tracks (sans "I Would For You," a Jane's Addiction cover) draw from "Significant Other," which still stands to date as their most successful (and in my opinion, best) album. Although the song selection is a little weak, they still deliver an excellent performance. I especially enjoyed listening to "Nookie" and "Re-Arranged."

Korn are also featured on here, but not as extensively as Limp Bizkit, for two reasons: One, Korn were not the headliners and two, Korn only appeared for a few dates on the tour. That being said, however, their selection on here is great. You get a combo of "A.D.I.D.A.S." and "Good God" that just sounds excellent and a nice rendition of "Falling Away From Me" that only suffers from Jonathan's strained vocals (I suspect he had a cold or something).

Minimally featured are the Crystal Method and the hip-hop duo Method Man & Redman. Crystal Method perform "Keep Hope Alive" and it is the only track of theirs that is on here. I like Crystal Method, but live techno? Kind of pointless. I think the CD could have benefited from more Method Man and Redman, the latter being one of the best and most underrated MC's of the 90's. Their contribution "Da Rockwilder" serves as a nice break in the otherwise alternative/nu-metal clutter.

Staind give their radio-hit "Mudshovel" a nice performance, andfrontman Aaron Lewis shines on the acoustic track "Outside," which everyone has heard by now and ended up being the song that catapulted them into fame.

Primus contribute two songs "Lacquer Head" and "My Name is Mud" that are pretty enjoyable, but for the uninitiated, might be boring. They sort of stick out like a sore thumb on this tour, but give a nice performance nontheless.

Finally, Filter. I have nothing against Filter, and the two songs they contribute are really good songs ("Welcome To The Fold" and "Hey Man, Nice Shot"), but they sound like complete cacophony on here. Really, listening to them perform on this CD I get the impression that they must be the worst live band ever. These tracks will make even die-hard fans cringe.

So, overall, I think this is a pretty good live CD. Once you can get past the pointless, preachy, typical Fred Durst rambling throughout the booklet, you'll enjoy it. But just like the other two Family Values CD's, it's hit or miss. If you didn't like any of the bands before, this CD won't change your mind, but if you happen to be a fan, you will find something to make you happy on here -- That is, unless you're a Filter fan... ...

Editorial Review

Possessing a likable, arena-rock amalgamation of grunge, alternative, and nu metal, Kansas City's Puddle of Mudd are at once emotional and straight-ahead. Indeed, their no-frills lineup puts one in mind of a less uptight Creed. Singer Wesley Reid Scantlin possesses an Eddie Vedder earnestness that on hard-hitting tunes like "Nobody Told Me" takes on a Cobain-like urgency. Ranging from acoustic-based yet lush midtempo rockers such as "Drift and Die" to the gimmicky fun of "She Hates Me" to the edgy Nirvana-esque "Bring Me Down" to the dynamic and direct "Control," the 11-song-strong Come Clean is an assured, accomplished, and varied debut likely to resonate with rock fans of many tastes and temperaments.

1-0 out of 5 stars I F%ck#n Hate Them! LaLaLaLa! I F*ck^n Hate This! LaLaLaLa!!

I guess the worst kept, dirty secret is out already, even though indiscriminate, braindead sheep keep buying their trademark-infringing music. What these impersonators planned to do, at the time of their 1st cd's recording, was listen to as much Nevermind and In Utero as they possibly could-so that their thinking was synonymous with Nirvana's sound-to create a cd that, note for note; chord for chord; lyric for lyric; tries to EXACTLY reproduce the Nirvana catalog. The singer, uhhm, what's his name again???? It's Wesley Reid Scato...Wesley Reid Scatological. Whoops, I meant to write Wesley Reid Skanklin, which, by the way, sounds like a cliché character name for an outlaw from the old west. If you were blind, you would be fooled that Kurt Cobain came back from the dead and started singing with this new loser band called Puddle of Mudd from a Midwestern farming commune.

1-0 out of 5 stars Umm
I am not being mean, so before you think this is a mean thing like most people to out there I am gonna tell you my option about this band, dont get mad or me or anything cause I am not telling you to stop likeing your music...Like them all you want.

To me Puddle of Mudd sounds a bit like Nirvana(I like Nirvana) but it sounds like Puddle of Mudd is trying to be just like them, I mean the guy kinda has a bit of Kurt to him to. Its okay if he likes Nirvana and wants to make a band just like Nirvana but this band's not the all time greastest band ever. Hes not all that good at singing or writing. I am sorry if this makes you mad though, I am trying to be nice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not terrible if you look past the pop culture backlash
Although the followup to "Come Clean" is truly terrible in almost every sense, the more open-minded can find at least something to like about this record.

The songwriting isn't brilliant, but the songs are catchy and poppy enough. The guitars and the vocals mesh together well and sound great on tracks like "Nobody Told Me" and "Out of My Head." "Blurry"'s interesting use of guitar harmonics as the base of a sparkling and memorable riff cannot be denied by anyone but the most staunchly-opposed and "Piss It All Away" serves up some darker Eastern-influenced instrumentation for an effective closer. For the most part, it's a listenable record straight through with the possible exceptions of the godawful nu metal ejaculation that is "Control" and the queer existence of a song such as "She Hates Me," which can only be explained by saying it was probably the result of Wes Scantlin's overpowering desire to wear Kurt Cobain's skin post-mortem in almost every way possible, co-opting Kurt's admitted fetish for kitschy "My Sharona"-ness in the process. In any case, it's less funny and more terrible for anyone in the 14 and older age group to subject their ears to.

On the downside, there is the lyrics. Oh, the lyrics. You know, just a pointer, Wes: if you're going to gargle razorblades to affect Cobain's singing style, co-opt Cobain's grungy guitar sound with all the tact of a retarded baker pouring donut glaze on a stripped NASCAR tire, and -- like almost every popular "alt-rock" band that came after him -- steal Cobain's now-classic, dynamics-laden loud-soft-loud songwriting technique, at least first put down the crayons and take stock of your ability as a poet. Please.

Was it really necessary to drone the same tired cliche involving excrement during the bridge of "Nobody Told Me" so many times it becomes like a mantra for MTV? Was it truly the best option to rhyme "sinner" with "dinner?" Even those who can overlook lyrical content in favor of musicality reach a breaking point; the bland "black is white, high is low, dirty is clean" clichefest that is "Out of My Head" is like a match to gasoline (hey, one good cliche deserves another). Honestly, I probably wouldn't have been surprised or voiced objection if the liner notes were manufactured like a children's pop-up book. Maybe at the very least, Flawless could have come up with some Dr. Seuss-ish illustrations to help along Puddle of Mudd's less literate fans. It would suit the lyrical content just fine.

Then there's the whole matter of this band debatably clawing their way to fame by (metaphorically of course) sucking Fred Durst's d*ck. No comment on that; I think it speaks for itself. And if it doesn't, dozens of other people who have written "reviews" of this record can say it better and more bluntly than I ever can.

Oh well. In the long run, you have to consider that there will always be bands like this that are long on hot air and short on time and substance. Let the kids snort it up like hits of coke and suffer the ultimate withdrawal when they discover their own personal Beatles, Nirvanas and Radioheads -- those completely mellow, government-sanctioned highs that I think we can all agree will be remembered for many generations to come, whereas this record will fade into obscurity like a bad bowel movement. As Scantlin himself ever-insightfully observes on "Bring Me Down," karma comes around two times. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Days of the New hit with the singles "Touch, Peel and Stand" and "Shelf in the Room." But they were a band in name only, and when singer Travis Meeks dumped his bandmates, it was a blessing in disguise for the musicians. Now, ex-DOTN members Todd Whitener (guitar), Jesse Vest (bass), and Matt Taul (drums) have a stellar, if sometimes mumbling, singer in Hugo Ferreira, and as Tantric, carry on the heavy acoustic-rock tradition they started in DOTN. Overall, Tantric's dozen-song debut is rather linear, with many of the songs more vibe-y than distinctive, though there are a few standouts. While the disc's first single, "Breakdown," is spare, midtempo, heavy-mellow, and typical of the album as a whole, departures include "Frequency," with its faster, angrier approach, and "Paranoid," with a cool fuzzy bass tone and ominous vocal delivery. The classical guitar stylings and diverse and welcome vocal inflections make the lighter and dynamic "Hate Me" likeable, while the complexities of "Revillusion" also add interest. Ultimately akin to a less dour Alice in Chains meets Creed, Tantric's solid songs are certainly the radio sound du jour, and possibly of tomorrow as well. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Sound
This is an outstanding effort from Tantric. There isn't any bad material here. All the songs are great. The vocals and guitar is some of the best I've heard in modern rock today. Todd Whitener is one of the best guitarists out right now, not to mention one of the best vocalists as well. Tantric has done well to create there own sound. I'll admit, I am a huge Days fan but Tantric's first album is just as good as "Orange", seriously. I would definetly recommend this album to any DOTN fan or rock fan in general, but don't be expecting heavy riffs and screaming because this album has a very laid-back feel to it. Excellent stuff.
Standout Tracks: (in no particular order)
1. I Don't Care
2. Astounded (great solo work)
3. I'll Stay Here
4. All To Myself
5. Hate Me Now
6. Inside Your Head
Basically every song is excellent!
Go buy it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Poop ...
Now before I start in with what I'm about to say ... let me at first say that I liked this album very much at one time ... But now ... it's different. I am a huge Days of the New fan, and at the time this came out, I thought Travis Meeks was a total idiot firing the backing musicians from the first album. I heard the single "Breakdown", and thought, "Wow, that's catchy, I'll buy it." Keep in mind, the only Days of the New song competing against "Breakdown" was "Enemy", a technoy trash song that I hate.
SO ... there I sat with the first Days of the New and Tantric ... I compared Travis' voice to that of Hugo's ... after awhile, Hugo's voice began to distance me from the cd more and more ... some think his voice is great, and that's fine and all, but you cannot tell me that Hugo sounds good singing on the "aggressive" songs that Tantric plays on this record (you know, the one's that involve electric guitars) ... as i listened to the songs more, and heard Hugo sing on parts like "Everything you've known has been taught and told you..." I was simply disgusted, HE SOUNDS HORRIBLE. .. So I decided to sell this cd to a friend, and I went back to Days of the New, thinking "Wow, Tantric is radio-friendly and sucks, and Days of the New is now a techno-acoustic band" (again, the only song being played was "Enemy"... So I decided to buy Days of the New 2 instead ... my jaw dropped ... beautiful orchestras, beatiful female vocals, excellent experimentation ... if that's what these three DOTN veterans were holding Travis back from doing ... then by all means, I began to support his firing of them all. Travis Meeks is a young genius ... it's plain to hear ...
But Tantric.... where is "Dancing With the Wind?" where is "Solitude"? where is "Whimsical"? "Face of the Earth?" "Real"? "Not the Same?" .... The thing is ... not only is Tantric's new vocalist a poor replacement (sure, he harmonizes well with Todd ... but Hugo would be better in the back, Todd should be the one singing here! You don't NEED Hugo!) Tantric lacks the creativity, originality, and overall DAKRNESS that Days of the New still possesses ... Sure, I can respect the fact that these guys want to be successful ... or can I? The drive for bands to become generic is much too high these days, whether you like this band or not, you have to admit that you have heard this garbage before, and not just on DOTN's debut, but this is very much a generic grunge album, nothing seperating it from the sound of the greats of 10 years ago ... the only thing saving DOTN's first record is the fact that it is a long "Jar of Flies" kind of cd ... entirely acoustic, and not really different, yet not really similar to other same-genre releases. Days of the New 2 & 3 is mostly where Travis begins to shine as a musician making music for those who love it. Of course Tantric has talent, and now out with a new album, it is rather too late to ditch Hugo ... however ... they could be very much a better by trying to develop something of their own, not continuing to play music from an oversaturated genre. If you listen to the radio, as I used to, for indicators of music to buy, I beg you, stop, as the best music is found off of the radio.
In conclusion, if you are a Nickleback, Creed, Pearl Jam, etc, fan who likes the poppy rock pseudo angry garbage you hear on the radio (because that's what it is) with catchy choruses, and no ground ventured from a musical standpoint, than by all means, this is for you ...
If you are a fan of MUSIC, someone who digs deeper than what is served to them over the airwaves, someone who is not satisfied with generic songwriting formulas, by all means, skip this band until they find a style of their own... and head straight for Days of the New, DOTN 2, or DOTN 3 ... if you are this second type of person also check out Aghora, Grotus, Sweaty Nipples, I Mother Earth, Testament's "Low" album, Drain STH, Yakuza, Skindive, and although this may sound odd ... old hard rock Jimmie's Chicken Shack ... these bands won't let you down as their creativity defies that of conventional rock, as Days of the New is currently doing with the new material they are putting out now. ...

Editorial Review

Music doesn't come more touching than this. With their debut single alone, the emotion-fortified "Shiver," Coldplay prove they can shift between elated and crushed in a breath, as singer Chris Martin pours out music's oldest chestnut (unconditional yet unrequited love) with the shakiest of voices and a backdrop of epic guitars. For 10 tracks on Parachutes, he adds newfound meaning to the most tired and overused rock sentiments--love found, love lost, love unrequited--over acoustic guitars and emotionally fraught rock. And for once, all the clichés ring true because Chris Martin genuinely sounds like a man picking over the bones of his life, coming up with just as many reasons to be cheerful as seriously depressed. Not that Parachutes is a depressing album--there's too much conviction to the guitars and hope in Martin's words for that. Instead it's a beautifully tender balance that comes as close to perfection as anything that's come before it. --Dan Gennoe ... Read more

Ha ...ha....ha. But seriously, this album was made to be listen alone in the dark ,then you'll know how misearable you are "I saw Sparkkkkkk.....I saw Sparkkkkkk". And for that, this debut is better than their 2nd album.

Yes,I am over the age of 13.

5-0 out of 5 stars Musical Power Never Wanes
It's fashionable for people to backlash and dismiss a popular band just because it gets lots of air-play and too much hype, but don't make this mistake with Coldplay. Even after five years since their debut album Parachutes, the songs, dripping with beautiful melancholy, keep their power. Seamless and assured, the songs collectively make the album a pop music masterpiece, paving the way for a new label, "emotional rock." It doesn't hurt that my favorite Coldplay song, "Sparks," is on this album but I would still love the album even in the absence of that tender song. Thankfully, the band Keane has been carrying the torch of Coldplay's brand of emotional rock. Also for two lesser known bands who share Coldplay's mastery of emotional pop rock, check out the Swedish bands Ronderlin and Radio Dept.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Album for great people
What can I say about Coldplay other than the fact that they are the greatest band out right now, I think that they are not going anywhere for a longtime. This album is very sad, and when I say sad I mean it is bittersweet and the lyrics reflect a very profound mind, with scars and fears. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The splicing together of nu metal, rap, funk, and sterile electronica laced with dark melodies as infectious as anything Britney has to offer inspired 6 million people to purchase copies of Limp Bizkit's Significant Other. With Chocolate Starfish, they perfect their formula. From the electro-infused "Intro" through the contagiously chugging "My Generation" to the straight-up rap of "Getcha Groove On," Chocolate Starfish is a slick, clinical, and flawless platform for Fred Durst's effortlessly savage--and occasionally unintentionally comic--sociological rants geared toward disaffected youth. Ultimately, though, it's that undeniably intelligent musical backdrop--the brooding guitar sound that gave the Mission Impossible 2 theme haunting new life and menace, and that defines "Hot Dog," "Full Nelson," "My Way," "Rollin'," "Boiler," and "It'll Be Okay"--that makes this a seething work of genius. The fact is, with rap and rock saying pretty much the same thing, Limp Bizkit have plenty of competition. They just do what they do better than everyone else. --Dan Gennoe ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Album
This was a pretty good album by Limp Bizkit. This album was the peak of limp's success.

The songs were well writed except there was way too much profanity.I dont mind hearing "F-This" or "F-That" every now and then but Fred over did it a little.They didn't need to curse so much to be successful because "My Way" and "Boiler" are great songs with minimal cursing.

Every song on this album is worth listening to.My generation and Rollin are real good hits.As is "Getcha Groove On".I normaly hate it when bands associate with rappers but this is the one case where ill make an exception.The vocals and beat couldn't be any better.

The only downfall to this album is the overused profanity and they went a little bit on the softside, breaking away with 3 Dollar Bill.

Overall i recomend this to people who dont mind frequent use of profanity and who like good frat-boy rock.

Editorial Review

Though Morning View follows hot on the heels of Incubus's breakthrough single, "Drive," it doesn't feel rushed. After all, their previous album, Make Yourself, was released nearly two years ago. Like fellow Los Angeles metal pioneers System of a Down, Incubus find themselves lumped in with the nu-metal fraternity merely because they're young(ish), angry, and very loud. That's more than a little unfair, because their sound owes more to the clever and creative funk-metal of Faith No More and the Red Hot Chili Peppers than the faux-rap posturing of Limp Bizkit. In fact, songs like "Nice to Know You," "Circles," and the excellent "Blood on the Ground" display real maturity. But that's not all that sets Incubus apart: on "I Wish You Were Here," "Just a Phase," "11 a.m.," and "Mexico," they show an uncharacteristic willingness to tread softly, using acoustic guitars and touches of strings to make less noise, but more impact. Some could call it selling out, but it sounds more like growing up. Morning View is a leap forward for a band that continues to get better with each release. --Robert Burrow ... Read more

Simply put-Incubus amazes me.I was never a huge fan of new-rock, but listening to this CD has converted me.Every song is unique...a very rare find for a modern album.Even the "heavier" songs aren't obnoxious at all...it is the perfect CD to keep in your car.

5-0 out of 5 stars Music That Sets a Certain Mood
I think the best way for me to describe this album is...sexy.Incubus' style is so smooth.This album is much like their previous release "Make Yourself" and it's just as good if not better than that album.Turn off the lights and snuggle up to "Morning View".

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Dollar
Many of my friends think that Science is incubus's finest hour. Personally, I think Morning View tops it. Although science is very good, the funky edge was just a bit too much for me to enjoy all the songs on the album (and i love a funky sound, RATM, Jimi Hendrix, the Chilis). This album hit the nail on the head. The last half of the cd gets heavy, good and proper alternative metal. It has a softer side, which i think is still quality, but its Dirk Lance's unorthodox heavy riffs that seal it for me. ... Read more
