    Editorial Review

    Linkin Park’s second studio effort (not counting the 2002 remix album Reanimation) overflows with glossy production values and Big Rock oomph, fully embracing the pop instincts of their Hybrid Theory debut. For many, Theory sounded inexcusably corporate, from its too-timely rap-rock sound to the long list of product endorsements included in the liner notes. Meteora will only amplify those complaints, but this album is actually truer to the band’s nature. It’s still impossible not to hear strains of Limp Bizkit, Korn, Rage Against the Machine, and the like. None of those acts, howeve, would try something as blatantly anthemic as "Easier to Run," which would sound fine to a Def Leppard fan, or as borderline danceable as "Breaking the Habit" and "Session." Linkin Park is what Trent Reznor was always afraid of becoming, but if you ever wished he would drop the pretenses and just make a hair-metal record, you'll find Meteora to your liking. --Matthew Cooke ...

    Editorial Review

    Despite the piercings and spiky hairdos of Good Charlotte frontmen Joel and Benji Madden, the filth and the fury of punk are not in evidence on The Young and the Hopeless. Rather, Good Charlotte lean toward the sunny power pop favored by the lighter Huntingdon Beach, California, outfits. Nevertheless, with the title track and "The Anthem" ("I'm just a minor threat"), the band appeals directly to high-school outsiders. Relationship problems are delved into in "Wondering" and "Say Anything," and they even find space to explore comic horror with "My Bloody Valentine." So they're not as intense or enraged as the hardcore likes of Black Flag or even Linkin Park. But the undeniably strong melodies this bunch comes up with have plenty of appeal on their own terms. --Dominic Wills ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    At a time when experimentation is taboo in most overground rap, that’s all Outkast seem intent on executing. Firstly, this double CD has no cohesive link, other than the fact that it sounds like a pair of solo albums stitched together to demo exactly how Andre’s yin works to augment Big Boi’s yang. Andre 3000’s Love Below disc rates as the more eclectic of the two, given that he’s turned in his emcee credentials to become a full-on funk-soul-jazz vocalist who mostly sings about items of love ("Happy Valentine's Day"), carnal lust ("Spread"), and female adoration ("Prototype"). Minus the big band schmaltz of "Love Hater" and cheesy cover jobs ("My Favorite Things"), Andre’s disc is sick (meaning great). As is to be expected, the Big Boi disc is less arty, more gangsta and worldly, and features the less-progressive guest raps of ATL crunk purveyors Lil’ Jon and The Eastside Boyz ("Last Call") and Jay-Z who rhymes the hook on "Flip Flop Rock". Unlike Big Boi, Andre keeps his collabos to a minimum, once crooning alongside Norah Jones on the cool yet sappy "Take Off Your Cool", and once with Kelis. Boi fulfills his Dungeon Family duty with flying colors by flipping some dirty southern up-tempo raps over electro beats on "GhettoMusick". By the time Cee-Lo sermonizes on "Reset", Speakerboxx and Love Below rate mostly as majestic and inspiring, with the remaining 23 per cent being just plain incredible --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    While Blink-182's pop-punk has given more than its share of entertaining moments over their career, "sonic experimentation" is hardly what you'd expect from their sixth studio album. Within their guitar-bass-drums template, however, they offer moments of playfulness and lyricism that stretch their definition of sound. The tempo changes and uses of (relative) silence in "Violence" and "Stockholm Syndrome" borrow post-punk conventions, and lend a new feel to the band's trademark cranked-upness. (The use of treated piano on the latter song also suggests that they’ve bent an ear to a few psychedelic-pop classics in their time.) As with 2001's Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, a theme of loneliness emerges upon the first couple of listens, but this time it feels as if Blink wants to connect it to something larger than before. Growth from the guys who once jokingly celebrated man-on-dog intercourse? Yeah. And best of all, it's worth hearing. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Daredevil soundtrack provided a nice boost for this previously unknown quartet from Little Rock, Arkansas. Evanescence’s songs "My Immortal" and the imposing "Bring Me to Life" are clear standouts in the film, mainly because they work so well with the dramatic, eerie undertones of the storyline. They reappear here on the band’s debut, alongside a selection of similarly brooding tracks that evoke pensive artists like Tori Amos and the Cranberries. Vocalist Amy Lee has the kind of voice that can cause weeks of insomnia, but on songs like "Tourniquet" and "Haunted" she belies the music’s sinister mood with evenhanded spirituality, thoughtfully letting some light shine through the tempest. --Aidin Vaziri ...

    Editorial Review

    You can tell a lot about a band by the company it keeps. Simple Plan's close chums include Good Charlotte and Blink 182, giving one a fair hint of the sound the group's debut, though, judging by song titles like "I’m Just a Kid," "The Worst Day Ever," and "God Must Hate Me," it’s clear these Canadian pop-punkers are aiming for a younger demographic still. Ignore the bikini-clad babes that festoon the sleeve--there’s none of Blink 182’s smutty double-entendres here. Frontman Pierre Bouvier writes about skipping school, crashing dad’s car, and lusting after girls that don’t know he exists. "Every day," he sob, "is the worst day ever." The music itself is far from glum. "I’d Do Anything" is a beaming Green Day-style chugger, while "When I’m With You" is a tale of obsession and heartbreak that owes more to the Go-Go's than Rancid. Seasoned punk fans will be put off by the excessive juvenilia, but the new wave should lap this up. --Louis Pattison ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    However coy she might be in her public statements, Britney Spears leans more than a bit toward the provocative on In the Zone. Less concerned with aiming at the mainstream radio dial than in the first days of her career, she and her collaborators make this as street and club ready a record as possible. The opening duet with Madonna, "Me Against the Music," is worthy, but the bigger superstar’s presence serves almost less as a performance than a key to Britney’s intentions: as Madonna did on albums such as Erotica , Ray of Light, and Music, she’s out to bend current trends to her needs. R. Kelly, Moby, and Ying Yang Twins all provide stirring moments that draw on everything from Bollywood to Southern hip-hop, while one of the most impressive tracks, "Touch of My Hand," joins the proud tradition of Cyndi Lauper’s "She Bop." She still lacks a fully formed artistic vision of her own, but Zone, with its many get-free anthems, puts her much closer. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Sticks and Stones, the third record from Florida emo-punkers New Found Glory, might wear its broken heart on its sleeve, but that doesn't mean it has to pretend to be mature. No, Blink-182's first choice of opening band have a firm grasp of the puerile: Sticks and Stones churns out dumb punk thrills at such a breakneck pace, you'd swear they were going out of fashion. The chugging "It's Been a Summer" does Blink as well as Travis, Mark, and Tom do themselves, while "Head-On Collision" displays the group's tender emo side, frontman Jordan Pundik smarting at a vicious relationship spat. "It feels like I'm bruised and broken / From our head-on collision," he sobs, as guitars crunch and blunder madly in the background. Thing is, although some of the tunes are spot on--particularly, the lovestruck "My Friend's Over You" and the moshpit-friendly "Something I Call Personality"--there's little to radically distinguish New Found Glory from their peers. If you're a diehard pop-punk fan, you've probably got records like this--and better--in your collection already. --Louis Pattison ... Read more

    Sum 41's blockbuster debut, All Killer No Filler, lifted riffs from Motley Crue and the Beastie Boys to make a formidably dumb racket, but this follow-up finds the Toronto quartet reining in its spiky-haired insolence. Drawing musical inspiration from toothy metal icons Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, Does This Look Infected? is not only meatier than its predecessor, but songs like "Still Waiting," with its opening refrain of "So am I still waiting, for this world to stop hating," and "Yesterday.com" reveal social consciousness creeping in. The album is not completely deprived of the goofy skate punk that launched the band, but it provides convincing evidence that CNN has taken over from Nickelodeon as Sum 41's preferred tour bus viewing. --Aidin Vaziri ...

    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 ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREATEST ROCK DEBUT SINCE "APETITE FOR DESTRUCTION"
    This album is(in my humble opinion) a classic the likes of Metallica's BLACK or Guns 'n Roses APETITE FOR DESTRUCTION!Linkin Park debuted with an eclectic but still distinct hard rocking sound that took everything everyone else was doing at the time and stepping it up to the next level.Chester Bennington can sing soft melodies and scream with the best.Mike Shinoda is a capable MC with heartfelt lyrics unlike most rap-metal bands around the turn of the century.Joseph Hahn's use of turntables and samples adds enough depth to the music that there is truly something for everyone.This is truly one of the incredible debuts that come around very rarely.I'm hoping once Fair To Midland(WWW.FTMBAND.COM) are signed they might have such an impact.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Limp Bizkit or Korn, but very good metal.
    Like most people these days, I find myself having a hard time finding a talented metal band. After realizing that the underground metal scence was full of greedy untalented crap like Morbid Angel, Testament, Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Nile, Suffocation, Death, Judas Priest, 3 Inches of Blood, Children of Bodom, and Cryptopsy. This Linkin Park band shows you that melody and heaviness can be combined in a brutal way.

    1-0 out of 5 stars talentless mtv friendly crap
    Imagine taking all those terrible bands like simple plan, good charlotte and avril lavigne and rolling them into one. Not a nice image well thats Gob for you. This band a) seems to have a serious lack of originality or creativity b) can barely get past power chords or poseur punk cliches c) are trying too hard to be sum 41. You only have to listen to 'Give Up the Grudge' it is practically a total rip off of sum 41's nothing on my back.

    The only people this album will appeal to is a bunch of stupid 12 year old kiddies who think this makes the rebellious or something the rest of us true music fans are just left wondering how long can these wannabe's continue to spew out this cloned teeny pop rubbish?

    4-0 out of 5 stars The evolution of gob...
    Thru out the years, I've been following the candian punk-pop foursome known as gob. This is what i've found; In 1995, they released a debut called "too late...no friends". It was your basic mid-90's punk album, with little to no melody, short songs, below average production, and poor song structure.

    In 98', the band released a follow up called "how far shallow takes you". This time around, the songs were a bit longer and had slightly more melody, and the band's transformation from "punk" to "punk-pop" was already underway.

    After about three years of being off the scene, gob returned once more in early 2001 with "the world according to gob", an album which owed more to Britney spears and the current Blink 182 than it did to early Green Day or the Ramones. The songs were overly poppy, the production was super slick, and the lyrics were varied and covered more topics than just potty humor and teen rebelion. It was A HUGE step in the right direction, with the boys producing an album as strong as "enema of the state" and "all killer no filler". In my opinion, it's their best record to date.

    Unfortunatly tho, even with a pop sound and modern lyrical content, gob was still no where near being as big as Simple plan or blink, so one year after releasing "the world according", they decided to go on tour with fellow canadian punk brats Sum 41. The tour gave them the opportunity to impress Arista's Executive producer LA reid, so much in fact that he sent the boys of gob into the recording studio the following year to create...

    "Foot in mouth disease". To be honest, its a bit MORE "punk" than "the world according to gob" , but not by much, and with producer Mark Trombino (blink 182, Diffuser, The Starting Line, Finch ect.) and labelmates Avril Lavine and Wakefield, the difference isn't easily noticed. It features 14 songs that run between 2-5 minutes on average, and are all really catchy and singable (the formula for "the world according to gob" was basically duplicated). If you're into melodic, catchy pop-punk, I'd recommend getting "the world according to gob" first and then "foot in mouth". DO NOT pick up "too late...no friends" or "How far shallow takes you" unless you actually prefer hardcore punk to pop-punk.

    5-0 out of 5 stars i love this and i don't even like this kinda stuff
    i'm usually into linkin park and lostprophets but this cd caught my eye. my uncle had left me borrow all of his cds and this was one of them. the only songs i had heard by Gob were the singles "for the moment" "i hear you calling" and "give up the grudge" so i was willing to give it a listen.

    Lemon-aid - 10/10 - a good starting song. this song pretty much sums up how the rest of the cd will be.

    I've Been Up These Steps - 10/10 - this song freakin rulz! just listen to the opening and you'll be hooked.

    Oh! Ellin - 6/10 - i really don't like this song. it just seems so flat to me. god knows why they made it a single.

    I Cut Myself, Too - 9/10 - this song is good to get back some momentum afetr suffering through Oh! Ellin.

    Fed Up - 100/10 - THE greatest song ever. a little slower but it FREAKING RULES!!!!

    Ming Tran - 10/10 - an awesome song. if you havent already seen the vid then you can just visualize what it would be like.

    When Life Gets Boring... - 9/10 - really sweet guitar but the chorus coulda been better.

    Give Up The Grudge - 10/10 - obviously you've seen the video for this song so theres no reason for me to talk about it.

    Bones - 7/10 - i don't care for this song all that much. the chorus sucks.

    This Evil World - 9/10 - good verses and guitar.

    I Hear You Calling - 7/10 - this song wasn't on the cd my uncle had... meh. i don't really like it anyway.

    Bully - 8/10 - this song actually has some screaming but they try to drown it in the music so you can't really hear it.

    Cold Feet - 8/10 - meh it's okay i guess.

    Everybody's Getting Hooked Up - 9/10 - SWEET GUITAR! bu that's about it.

    DVD - 4/10 - now comon. if your gonna put a DVD with a cd at least have the intension of putting behind the scenes footage on it. i don't give a flying crap about their old videos. and who wants to listen to old song on a DVD player!? ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Self-professed skate punk Avril Lavigne sings that she'd "rather be anything but ordinary" on her debut. While the fact that she had a record deal by the age of 16 separates her from the pack, too often Let Go's lyrical shortcomings drag the teenager's musically impressive recording entrée into the realm of the typical. The catchy choruses of Go are substantial, though, thanks to Lavigne's riff-driven melodies and powerful vocals, which at times adopt the unorthodox intonation quirks of fellow Canadian Alanis Morrissette. The nuanced, dynamic "Losing Grip," "My World" (which perfectly captures the ennui of suburbia), and the buoyant power-pop blast "Sk8er Boi" are the collection's highlights. But Lavigne's honest yet awkward words weigh down the likes of "Mobile," "I'm with You," and "Naked." "Nobody's Fool," which displays her Pink-like take-me-as-I-am credo, hints that someday Lavigne's lyrics will match the strength of her music. --Annie Zaleski ... Read more

    I am a huge fan of catchy melodic girl rock/pop. If you enjoy this album then I strongly recommend that you check out the following:
    1) Jalopy Go Far by Zolof The Rock and Roll Destroyer
    2) Ready 2 Pop by Miss Mary
    3) An Illustrated History by Puffyamiyumi

    3-0 out of 5 stars loud, somewhat anoying, no where near punk. . . but . . . .
    I have to admite, i use to be a huge fan of Avril Lavigne.(aren't all pre-teen/teenage girls??) i bought this CD about 3 years ago. I loved it at first, but then i started to get really bored of it...and i mean really bored of it. Before you even think about buying it, here's some things that you need to watch out for:
    ~` It's loud; girl pop/rock music.
    ~` it can get VERY anoying (especially 'sk8ter boi)
    ~` don't listen to what people are saying; AVRIL ISN'T PUNK!!
    Some good things about it are:
    ~` It has a few different styles of music (pop, rock, a few country songs)
    ~` It's 'in'.
    ~` the songs are original.
    ~` Avril writes whatever she wants to.

    All 'n' all, it's an "OK" CD. Avril Lavigne's second CD, "Under My Skin", is alot better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great album!
    ok im not under 13 im just using this cuz its easier...

    to all the people who are reviewing below saying 'i can't believe all of you think avril is punk! avril is not punk she's a poser!' barely anyone on this review thing is saying that shes 'sooo punk rock'... and i certainly don't think she is. to me avril is definately a pop artist, but some of her songs have edge... but i know for a fact she's not punk rock.
    anways about let go... i remember when this album came out i loved it. it was in my CD player constantly and i practically wore it out... even the CD case got wrecked cuz i would take it everywhere. I think all of the songs on Let Go are catchy and meaningful... except Sk8er Boi, which does have some pretty corny lyrics, but if I'm in the right mood the music can be a bit catchy. there's no denying that the best songs are in the middle and near the end, except for losing grip... love that song.
    At the time when this album came out, the pop world was full of people just selling their bodies and not their music, and I think that avril kind of changed that, except I find it a little sad now in days that people in record companies saw her success and decided to mimick it in every upcoming artist possible (for example... ashlee simpson).
    This album is truly great, and I really hope Avril sticks around for awhile and makes a 3rd album that can compare to Let Go and Under My Skin. ... Read more

He thinks he's the toughest guy in music, but all that he did is insult a bunch of bands, so that the frontmen of those bands hate him. (coughTrentReznorcough) For anyone who wants to hear bands similar to Limp Bizkit, here are some:

    Nine Inch Nails (Both bands write angry music, but Trent Reznor hates Fred Durst)
    Glassjaw (Daryl Palumbo kicks Fred Durst's ass)

    1-0 out of 5 stars Hate This Band!
    This is the worst album they have done! "Behind Blue Eyes" is a flop! The Who's original version is much better! Why make this kind of sh*t???

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wut Iz Yo Problem???
    Limp Bizkit R da godz of deth metul! All that Iron Gayden eva did wuz play pafetik muzik dat neva made it 2 MTV.

    All hail Fred Durst! ... Read more

    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

    The cd is all together really good except pain for pleasure i f***ing hate that song. The Good Songs are Fat Lip, In Too Deep, Crazy Amanda Bunkface, and Motivation. My opinion is if you like skatebording youll like this cd and if you like punk youll like this cd.

    1-0 out of 5 stars MORE LAME MUSIC FOR A LAMEO PARTY


    HERE IS MY TOP TEN LIST OF THE THINGS I HATE ABOUT THIS ALBUM



    10 ITS LAME
    9 THEY RIP OFF GREEN DAY
    8 THERE DUMB
    7 THERE TOO OLD
    6 SONGS THAT WERE WRITTEN BY A ORANGATANG
    5:WUSSY ROCK
    4 THERE A BUNCH OF WUSSYS
    3 THEY STINK
    2 THEY REALLY STINK
    1.......... ITS SUM 41!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Loses It's Touch
    As you should already know, Sum 41 used the highly popular pop punk formula to make this CD. They added a bit of rap/rock and a bit of metal to it but despite that, thats just what it is. Generic pop punk music. Its not bad. But its not excellent either.

    This CD is awesome when you are 12 but when you grow up a little bit, your opinion changes of it. If I wrote this review a few years earlier, I'd have given it 5 stars without question. But now, its lost its touch. I still like it but not nearly as much.

    So in short, I recommend it to those in a younger crowd or those who are looking to get into pop punk or punk music. If you are already a pop punk or punk fan, skip it. Its nothing you haven't heard already.

    Editorial Review

    He’s been shot nine times. Incarcerated. And stabbed up and down. And that’s only what’s happened on 50 Cent’s down time. Hands down, 50 Cent is the biggest buzz emcee since Eminem (who just happens to be his label CEO), and Get Rich also features Dr. Dre on production, so it’s a can’t-miss record, right? Well, mostly. Get Rich is not filled with midtempo, radio-friendly numbers like "Wanksta," his thinly veiled Ja Rule dis first heard on the 8 Mile soundtrack. Instead, Cent brings the heat, not heater. He sheds his inner thug on "21 Questions," featuring G-funk crooner Nate Dogg showing some semblance of respect to the hotties, and then reverts right back to his thug persona on "In da Club," where he boasts "I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love." There’s no "How to Rob, Pt. 2" here, although "Many Men" comes close, as he addresses some of the haters who may not fully get why he’s now rap’s big cheese. Surprisingly, the two Eminem-produced joints--"Patiently Waiting" (which thematically is very much like Em’s "Lose Yourself"), and "Don’t Push Me"--almost rival the beats supplied by Dre. Then again, it seems his most well-known cuts ("High All the Time" and "Wanksta," for example) are actually some of the weakest of the lot. Sure, Get Rich could never have lived up to the hype, it’s nowhere near Biggie's Ready to Die or Nas's Illmatic, but there's no fast-forward material here, a near miracle in these times. --Dalton Higgins ...

    This album is cool. I love 50 cent and he will always be my favorite rapper. I love all the songs. I love this cd and The Massacre. And i like Beg For Mercy. Peace Out

    4-0 out of 5 stars Undeniable appeal, but still
    50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Trying" is, over all, a great album.His"gangsta" attitude and confident swagger make give him undeniable appeal.It's a good listen with great production, opening with his now famous and much parodied g-unit calls, following immediately with "Patiently Waiting," a track that lets loose some emotion.That's my only problem with 50 Cents, he raps in the same tone for almost the whole album, never with any agility.That's just a matter of preference, it's a good record and perfect for breaking him into the mainstream.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Too lazy too fill out the thing so i clicked kid's review
    50 has a unique style... he's not really that lyrically impressive, but he just comes so hard on his stuff that you're impressed anyway. Let me just say that this CD is better than the massacre, but that doesn't mean that the massacre isn't good. The massacre has it's good Cuts, like: In my hood, Gatman and Robbin, and God gave me style. No matter what 50 couldn't top this CD anyways. This CD was in instant classic. Every song has good beats, and 50 knows how to work with em. Best songs are the dre beat ones of course: In da club, Blood hound, and if i can't. If you want a CD too bump in your car then this is definitely it. I suggest getting this before the massacre... the massacre seems to be geared more towards the ladies.. songs like: Build you up, Just a lil bit, Candy shop, amazing lead me to believe it. Anyways they're both Good Cd's and definitely pick up The G UNIT Cd and maybe banks and bucks CD's too. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Starting life as the most competent Misfits tribute band to not actually play Misfits songs, San Francisco Bay Area punks A.F.I. have not only discovered how to write their own snarling melodies, but have developed the confidence to play them without a cloak. Sing the Sorrow marks the band’s first major-label release and the difference from their indie albums is in the details: songs freely shift gears and tempos, singer Davey Havoc flexes his pristine vocal abilities by breaking into the occasional falsetto, and sugary tracks like "The Leaving Song" and "The Great Disappointment" now take a place next to more standard nuclear-charged mosh-pit fare like "Bleed Black" and "Dancing Through Sunday." Longtime fans might take it like a kick to the head, but this band is clearly moving toward bigger things. --Aidin Vaziri ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good
    This album was prodded to me as this hard piece of prog rock and I was ultimately disappointed based on that description.

    This, at best, would be considered experimental.I've listened to some of AFI's older stuff and this sounds far more matured than anything else, and they seem to embrace different stylings.

    "Death of Seasons" comes to mind first and foremost.How many post-punk bands pull off that level of industrial dabbling so succesfully?

    Anyone who appreciates punk, rock, and experimental music should pick themselves up this album.It will get plenty of spins, trust me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Record.
    I love this album.It took a while to get into, at first I just listened to it for Silver and Cold, Girl's Not Grey, and This Celluoid Dream.This was mostly becuase on those songs I could kind of understand what their vocalist was saying.But eventually I could make out his style, not that it wasnt enjoyable before.This is a band that seems great live, their songs rock pretty hard.It'seasy to see how this band has a large cult following.I like their songwriting and a lot of the bass parts.You should definetly buy this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Album so far.
    As i said in my other AFI reviews they Have yet to release anything under Awesome.With this one it got even better,This album shows exactly what a hugely talented band can do if given the chance.The Lyrics are Very Curesque but not to the point of copying,The music is darker than their previous album (The art of drowning)and They experiment with even more new materials.The intro sounds almost like the terminator theme song until the chanting begins.From then on in things just get better.The track Death of seasons Is Incredible,how anyone wrote that musical arrangement is beyond me,It progresses from Screaming hardcore to a melodic dark chorus to......A Techno Beat.This is one of those albums you listen to over and over again without the need to skip any track.It may slice the AFI fanbase in 2 halves but those with enough maturity to take the album for what it is.It Will not dissapoint.As for "a kids review"Dude you cant even spell dont bother with a comparison. ...

    Editorial Review

    Any lingering doubts as to the depth of Eminem's skills or his potentialfor raw yet compelling honesty are dispelled on The Eminem Show's firsttrack. Armed with a quicksilver flow and a thundering rhythm track (the recordwas exec produced by longtime mentor and partnerDr. Dre), "WhiteAmerica" finds Eminem ferociously mauling the hand that feeds him, lambastinghis critics, the industry, and the racism that, in many ways, helped makeMarshall Mathers more than just another rapper. "Let's do the math," Em sneers,"If I was black I would have sold half/ I could be one of your kids/ Little Ericlooks just like this." After the bombast ofThe Marshall Mathers LPand Eminem's well-noted use of sexual epithets, this kind of material is mademore controversial because it actually rings true. From a brutal retort to hislong-estranged and equally troubled mother ("Cleaning Out My Closets") to asurprisingly tender ode to his child ("Hailie's Song"), Eminem examines hislife, loves, arrests, addictions, failures, and successes with surprisinginsight, making this a funk-drenched hip-hop confessional well worth the hype.--Amy Linden ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Eminem Show is pretty good :)
    Well what's their to say, the album doesnt have any bad tracks, the tracks that aren't great are "Say Goodbye to Hollywood" and "When The Music Stops". the rest of the album is pretty good, my favourite tracks are "Business" "Cleanin' out My Closet" "Square Dance" "Drips" "Without Me" "Superman" "Haile's Song" and "My Dad's Gone Crazy". "Till I Collapse" is real good also. 2 bad his next release "Encore" was awful :(
    The Eminem Show is not a disappointment though and i do recommend this to u all ! !

    I think Chingy is the best rapper alive. Seriously, I do and he works with my other favorite rapper (Snoop). I don't know why so many hate him but I loved this cd and my personal favorite song was Juice.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrific
    Chingy is the worst thing to hit rap! You thought Cam'ron was corny with his pink/purple representation, or how ridiculous Lil' Romeo sounds talking about girls from a grown man's perspective with his looney toon bubble yum lyrics. Maybe how Bow Wow turned 16 and did a Collabo w/ Baby from Cash Money & thought he was grown up or maybe just how Mystikal sounds like a Skitzo when he raps! No, you havent seen the s h * t chingy is dishing out! No one could have ever predicted years ago a guy like this could come around & succeed.

    All youth growing up 2day is influenced by the mass media, such as MTV & BET & guest appearances on the tonight show, and good morning america. Major networks are shoving these artists and their video's down our throat, as if we hadn't heard the song once before. All you here is Chingy's "Right Thurr", or "Holidae Inn" or 50cent's numerous cuts like "Up In Da Club", "Candy Shop", "Stunt 101", "P.I.M.P. Remix w/ Snoop", "Hate it Or Love It" feat. The Game. Its all too annoying & pushy. The music industry forces us to listen to this horrible stuff repeaditly too much. Its ruining Hip Hop culture! These rappers arent lyricists, they are merely entertainers. Getting pressured from record labels to pop out that next poppy smash hit, so money is made & both sides are happy. Because both the rich white guy in the business suit and the poor ass G with the doo rag from 34th street are making due. Each is prospering in the outcome of things & it doesn't matter how things should really be; should the lyrics be more authentic, cutting edge, real to the artists own personal life, is this gonna make the underground crowd happy & commercial crowd happy?

    Time is passing & original MC's are aging. This makes way for new acts to come along and fill the place of hip hop's old heads & uphold its glory. Yet this isn't being done. There are very few rappers properly representing what rap should be today. The Hip Hop genre is naturally positive. The style was born on positive free willed expression of mind w/ rhyme scheme combined w/ poetic outlet. To me it seemed like a Black Panthers approach to non-violence and announcing who they are, what they represent and where they stand in society. PUT A FIST IN THE AIR AND SHOUT YOUR BELIEFS. People then found out it was fun to express your views with rhyme. Make one word clash w/ the next. Give your expression some kind of flow and make it fun. It was all basic then..

    In the 80's came the new genre of New Wave. What also came was a major hip hop overhaul with Break Dancing (BBOYS), Tagging/Graffiti, DJ'ing and scratching, and heavy freestyle sessions. Come to 1988 the genre of music made known by Teddy Riley (Lead Singer of "Guy", and Blackstreet), made famous by Bobby Brown was "New Jack Swing". New Jack was a type of rhythm n' blues combined with an upbeat hip hop rap style to it. To me it seems like New Jack will never come back in, as it can compare relatively the same to Grunge; gone. Such groups spawned from this era were Troop, ABC (Another Bad Creation), which had some gold and platinum success during this time. This period lasted from 1988-1992 as gangsta rap came in early 91.

    Then it became popular to act hard, come the age of "gangsta rap" in the early 90's w/ The impact of N.W.A and Wu-Tang clan. Still today being and acting hard is whats popular and its sad.

    Artist today in hip hop music that have their name still out representing it the correct & right way that i can think of are Common, Talib Kweli, DJ Quik, Nas, Jay-Z, Outkast and..... thats about it. Who else can u think of? There arent many others. Ludacris is funny with his words, and although lyrically he is pretty good, hes not a Super Power. Common's lyrics have always been righteous with regards to small usage of foul language & his creativity unmatched. Talib Kweli is up there as well. DJ Quik's production is cream of the crop, Nas and Jay-Z & Outkast are all crazy dope. LA based gangsta rap has always been tight too, with the jazzy G-Funk vibes complemented by Snoop, Daz Dilli, Kurupt (Tha Kingpin), Nate Dogg, Mr. Bad Azz, Warren G, Soopafly, Suga Free, Roscoe, Pac of course, Kokane, Knoc-Turn'al, Xzibit, Shade Sheist, Damizza, WC & The Westside Connect Gang as well as many others.

    Good lyricists from the past - Rakim, GrandMaster Flash & The Furious Five, Whodini, 2pac, Naughty By Nature, Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Big L, Big Punisher, Tribe Called Quest, Run DMC, Jay-Z, Slick Rick. Keep It Real Please ... Read more

    I bet you wont like this album at the first listen, but if you listen to it several times it would definately grow on you.
    Best Songs on there are definately "Come Dig Me Out", "Coolhead", "Shut Up", and "More THan Life Itself", the other tracks are all good too though. My Advice is if you liked "Papa Dont Preach" get this album right away!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Punked out breath of fresh air
    I have to say that I bought this album expecting something like Britney Avril meet Lavine Simpson.I wasn't very impressed with Papa Don't Preach.Man was I surprised.The songs are well written both muscially and lyrically.I was shocked to find out that ALL of the lyrics were written by Kelly herself.That in itself is something very rare to find in female artists period.
    There's such a high energy to this album reminiscent of early 80's punk/pop from pre-success Go Go's, Green Day or euro punk bands.This is not music for the top 40 crowd. There are very few mainstream artists daring enough to put this kind of punk influenced music out these days.What a punked out breath of fresh air. This little girls got cahones.Next to Green Day's American Idiot, this is one of my fav cds. ... Read more
