5-0 out of 5 stars Revelations
Quite a while ago, I picked up Morning View. I liked it a lot, but it wasn't enough for me to keep looking for Incubus (and the fact that I only ever found songs from Make Yourself didn't help). Then one day in a restaurant, I heard some music playing that I really liked the sound of. It sounded like Brandon singing, but there was no way the Incubus I knew could be playing music like this! So I made a mental note of the one lyric I could pick out, and then searched for it. Turns out it was "Favorite Things" and as soon as I found out where it came from, and having listened to one or two other songs on the album, I went and bought it.

At first listen I was more surprised by the difference between S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and Morning View than anything. I didn't really understand what was going on with the music - the funky, syncopated groove of songs like 'Redefine' and 'New Skin' went right over my head. 'Vitamin' was much more friendly, since I listen to a lot of hard rock and it immediately seemed right at home (this CD has a lot of bass in the mix. I blew my speakers listening to 'Vitamin' too loud ;) A couple of the songs I just didn't understand - like the heavy-quiet 'Idiot Box,' and 'Magic Medicine' with its bass, drums, and children's book reading, while others like 'Glass' and 'Deep Inside' I loved the first time I heard them.

The CD stayed in my player for about a month, and over that time I finally started to get my head around the idea of funk - and I realized that I really liked it, especially when fused with the hard rock that I like so much. This combination put Incubus in my top 4 favorite bands, along with I Mother Earth, Spacehog, and Dream Theater.

If you like funk or hard rock and are looking for a little new music, give this album a listen. If you really like A Crow Left Of The Murder and are looking for more along those lines, try Make Yourself or Morning View instead. If you want to see Incubus' true roots, check this album out. No true Incubus fan that I know likes only their new stuff.

The only problem I have with it is the fact that it's Incubus' only album like this. More musical, tighter, and more polished than their previous stuff, but before they turned to where they are now. Their new music isn't a compromise made for radio play or anything - they just took a COMPLETELY different direction. If you listen to 'A Crow Left Of The Murder' and 'S.C.I.E.N.C.E.' it sounds like two different bands. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Call it what you want: emo-core, alternative, sneaker metal...the Deftones seemed the most unlikely quartet to come out on Madonna's Maverick Records. The music is agro, abrasive, and damn near primal from the disc's first few seconds. Tool-like whisperings of frontman Chino Moreno can bring the mood from disconcerting to downright dangerous in seconds. Heavy, chunky guitar riffs, mad raps, and testy tempo changes make this a must-have for fans of whisper-to-a-primal-scream alterna-rock. Killer tracks: "Bored" and "7 Words." --Denise Sheppard ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Metal Album of the 90s
The Deftones are a band who go against the grain,constantly evolve and sound like no other band around.They have been placed in a genre with bands like Korn,Slipknot, Linkin Park etc....this is,to me, a great injustice to a band whos music is far more layered,deep and innovative than all these bands.
'Adrenaline', although i love the other three emensely, is still my favourite Deftones album. The raw aggression of this record is breath taking.Songs like 'seven words','engine no. nine" and "nosebleed" are moshpit classics. The band also illustrate their differences from other "nu-metal",(i hate calling the Deftones this), bands with songs that are as atmospheric,dark and moody as they are aggressive. Songs like "Firreal" and 'Root' indicate the way in which the Deftones were to evolve in the next few records they released. The hidden track 'Fist" , is in my opinion of the most beautiful songs around. Adrenaline is the best album in its genre period.

1.Bored 8/10- the most radio friendly song on the album,great none the less.
2.Minus Blindfold- 9/10 awesome song,Stef displaying song real skills on the guitar.
3.One Weak-9/10 great song, Chinos voice shines on this track
4.Nosebleed-9/10- aggresion,power,anguish, what more can i say?
5.Root- 9/10 -another great song,very infectious chorus,great ending
6.Nosebleed-7/10-probably my least favourite song on the album but decent none the less
7.Seven Words- 10/10-What can i say? you want song to mosh to, here it is,a pure adrenaline rush
8.-Birthmark-10/10- My favourite song on the album ,very melodic at the start bulids up to one of the greatest finales with Stef banging out a superd riff
9-Engine no nine-8/10- another great song oozing raw power
10-Firreal-10/10-a pointer of things to come,and great illustration of what this band is about, atomosphere,power and melody
Fist-10/10- beautiful!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure ADRENALINE, from start to finish..............
Though many will site "Around The Fur" as their best, I'm gonna have to go with Adrenaline as Deftones' best album to date. Both White Pony and their new, self titled album are amazing, but don't measure up to the rawness and rage that comes seething through your speaker when you pop this s**t in.

1)Bored: AMAZING! Defintely a classic record in the nu-metal genre.
5/5

2)Minus Blindfold: Good song. I love the chorus for some reason.
4/5

3)One Weak: I like this one aswell. It reminds me of "Minus Blindfold" a little too much though. Great regardless.
3.5/5

4)Nosebleed: HOT!!! This song is off tha hook! It is quite possibly the heaviest, angriest, most agressive song Deftones has ever put out.
5/5

5)Lifter: This is another great one. I love the vibe that this song gives off, and the riff is kool.
5/5

6)Root: One of the weaker cuts off the album, but this album's so good that it isn't a bad thing.
3.5/5

7)7 Words: Classic. Heavy, agressive, and unadulterated.
5/5

8)Birthmark: Luv this one! Everything about it is good.

9)Engine #9: This might be the best song on this entire album. This song is perfect. Chino raps on this one, and shows just how influential they've been when it comes to the genre of nu-metal. Everybody either copies off of Korn or Deftones.
6/5

10)Fireal: Good song. Nothing much to say about this one. Not the best on the album, but a great way to finish it off.
4/5

This album is tight. While I believe that Adrenaline is their best album, "Be Quiet & Drive", off Around The Fur, is probably the best song ever put out by Deftones. I suggest you check that out, and definitely check this one out also.

4-0 out of 5 stars Emo-core? No, this is metal. Deftones: Adrenaline review
This is metal. I don't get why some of the reviews call it emo? It isn't, this is real metal at its best. It is raw and unfiltered. It sounds very hard though! Note: This is a debut and not a lot of bands sound the same after their debut CD. So take that warning when you buy this CD! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this now
This Cd is nothing short of amazing, they put Limp Bizkit to shame. Im not even gonna try to pick a favorite song, they are all so good. If youre a fan of the hip-hop metal style, this is the Cd for you. Its too bad their singer, Lynn Strait, died in a car accident. They were so close to becoming huge. Thankfully, the former members are doing other projects. Mikey Doling and Sonny Mayo, the guitarists, are in Soulfly and Amen, Tumor the bass player is also in Amen, and Jaime Miller, the drummer is in Hero. Too bad that none of these groups come close to sounding as good as Snot. Do yourself a favor and get this Cd right now, because it will become one of your favorites, and you'll see what a great band they were and how good Lynn Strait was. R.I.P.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brightest flame burns quickest
Snot were the best of the new metal bands. Their album almost captures the furious intensity of their live shows, but it could never fully substitute for seeing the boys live. Songs like "Joyride" and "Deadfall" showcase their amazing musical talent (as well as Lynns f-ed up sense of humor) at high-speed velocity, while "Get Some" is a grim trip into the creepy depths of self-doubt.

We all will miss Lynn and Dobbs forever... people who are Snot fans NEED to go to loudside.com/snot and see the next album that's coming out. "Get Some" is better than both of Limp Bizkit's albums combined, and the more people we tell about Snot, the more Lynn and Dobbs will live on in our hearts.

"Tecato" recounts Lynn's struggles with heroin, something he beat before fate took him from us. Put this disc in your player, crank it to 11, and rock the f**k out one more time for Lynn. And even if Amen aren't as good as Snot was, buy the record anyway. Support Mikey, Sonny, Tumor, Jamie and Fed.

Lynn, we miss you.

5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD Nu-metal
Looking back on Snot's short history (due to the death of front man James Lynn Strait), one can realize that they did the impossible, they made actual GOOD nu-metal. At the time, Limp Bizkit was a small chord-rock (yes, it's true, hard to believe isn't it?) band who were just starting to make waves, and Korn was well on their way to becoming a house hold name. Following right behind the two was Snot, a band who deserved even more fame than Korn & Bizkit acheived.

Lynn Strait was a great front man and an amazing live performer. The band, in particular Mike Smith were some of the most talented musicians in the metal scene at the time. They had all the potential in the world to be something huge.

(...)"Get Some" starts off with the heavy "Snot", a model for modern hard rock, or "nu metal". Only this song is good. It's something Limp Bizkit might have made, had they not become soul-less corporate rock puppets. "Stoopid" and "Joy Ride" both keep up the fast pace, the latter being the better of the two, with lyrics that are kind of eerie, given how Lynn died.

"I Jus' Lie", "My Ba!!s", "Mr. Brett" and "Get Some" are all fun-loving heavy metal anthems. Which is the best part of the CD, they never really took themselves serious (as they'd explain whenever they were asked where they got their name from) and instead just made music because they enjoyed playing. The charm of that rubs off on you as you listen and made this quite possibly the best nu-metal album ever. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars They Put Limp Bizkit to Shame
What's wrong with music today? In an age where so called rap-metal bands such as Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock are blasted non-stop on the radio and MTV, bands like (hed)pe, with twice as much talent, are unknown. It truly boggles the mind. (Hed) is one of the only bands to successfully combine elements of metal with rap. Their energy is absolutely incredible and they sound great. This whole album is excellent and I world be hard pressed to choose a favorite song, but Serpent Boy, Firsty, and TOS are probably my favorites. (!Cliche alert!) MCUD really can flow and lay down some dope rhymes. I know that sounds really stupid, but it's true. ... Perhaps one day, (Hed) will gain commercial success in the vein of Bizkit or Korn, but I doubt it. And in a way, I'm glad. Ordinary TRL viewers probably couldn't compehend music of this caliber. Watch out for (Hed)'s 2nd album, "Broke" out on August 22nd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can I get an "Awwww Yeahhh! " ?
This disc f'in rocks my world. Thanks to the Strangeland soundtrack, I felt the desire to check these guys out further... and I was not disappointed! (hed)pe brings forth the inevitable Limp Bizkit comparisons, and LB fares _Badly_ in this light. With good solid rapping, great lyrics and some booty-bouncing, hip-hop/metal riffing, (hed)pe emerge as the better band in terms of musical talent and lyric writing.

The album rocks from beginning to end. "POS" and "Ground" lead smoothly into "Serpent Boy", which is explosive and features some awesome transitions from hyper-rapped verses to mega-rock-riff choruses. "Tired of Sleep" features a more laid back groove laid down over eerily haunting high pitched guitar licks.

Other excellent tracks are "Schpamb", "Ken 2012", "33" and "Hill". "IFO" has fast become one of my favorite, featuring some of the most awesome lyrics I have ever heard. It sounds like the X-Files episode written by the staff of High Times!

All in all, this band can hold it's own against any of the new metal bands out there, Rage Against the Machine included. Rage owns, but so does (hed)pe. I think the future for these guys is blindingly bright, and I would highly recommend this record to people out there with open minds who don't blindly cling to allegiance with one band.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great!
The first full-length album from 6-piece rap-metal band (hed) p.e. is a great effort. Though what they bring to the table is nothing new, what they do, they do very well. Frontman M.C.U.D. is a notch above all the other nu-metal frontman with his energy, slick rapping, vocals and lyrics that explore planetary evolution, religion, the paranormal, sex, and racism while still being quite amusing. Drummer B.C. is an excellent drummer that doesn't rely on the DJ to make all the beats for him (not on this album, anyway), while DJ product provides some cool scratches and samples throughout. Bassist Mawk makes some funky rhythms in back and guitarist duo Wessyle and Chizad provide the heaviness this album needs and work best together here. This CD contains elements of Hip-Hop, metal, punk, reggae, and even some tribal. If you're not completely sick of rap-metal then this is some good stuff that should keep you banging your head for a while. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Despite boasting an appellation better suited to a top-shelf flagellation magazine than an ear-scorching rock crew, the Los Angeles quintet Ultraspank pummel away with uncompromising metal belligerence. Their sophomore effort after changing their name from Indica in 1996 is a quantum leap forward from their eponymous 1998 debut. Leather-lunged vocalist Pete Murray careens from harmonic restraint to full-tilt throat abuse on the devastating "Crack." Incubus DJ Chris Kilmore joins the throng on "Stuck," which also benefits from the contributions of former Ozzy Osbourne knob-twiddler Peter Collins. Ultimately, Ultraspank relies on all-conquering force to steamroller listeners into abject submission. --Ian Fortnam ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Progression Indeed
Ultraspank have been one of my favorite bands since I first heard of them back in 1998 right before their debut CD came out. After purchasing the debut, I realized exactly how talented this Santa Barbara band was at making crushing riffs layed out over fast breakbeats. Well, after two years past, Ultraspank are at it again, delivering their brand of industrial hardcore with a new disc called Progress. It seems the perfect title for them, because of the great strides they have made on their live shows and their album production, though everything was already great. On this sophomore release, the vocals are more wailing than grunted Phil Anselmo style on the first one. I liked to compare them to the singing parts of Disturbed's David Draiman. The guitar riffs are still crushingly heavy, but not too hard as to not enjoy them. The bass lines are very brutal as well, but have a more jazzy feel to them. The drums are definitely the highlight of this band. They are fastly beating the whole way through, but do slow down occasionaly to accomadate the bass. Some of the highlights of this record are Push, Feed, Click, and Stuck (featuring DJ Chris Kilmore of Incubus). Though more downtuned than the last album, this still packs a punch. Other great bands to check out are Videodrone, Society 1, 20 Dead Flower Children, Drown, and Dope.

5-0 out of 5 stars 0WNED.
Few bands out there today (in any genre) have had a sophomore album with as much growth and power as Ultraspank's "Progress." Some of the best bands out there have released smashing debut albums only to followed up with a disappointing return effort. Ultraspank, if all indications are correct, has nowhere to go but up.

The opening track "Push" is a beautifully crafted song, delivering us the bass-driven grooves along with Pete Murray's stunning vocal range. Murray goes from melodic crooning to throaty screams in seconds, proving his versatility as a vocalist. And may I add that the addition of Snot alumnus James "Cornfed" Carroll on drums is obvious and very welcome from the first song on. James' laser-perfect timing and creativity give this band a real shot in the arm.

Other favorite tracks of mine are "Feed", "Smile", "Stuck" and Jackass. Ultraspank has proven that they are better musicians then half the drivel you hear on the radio today, and are primed to step up alongside Korn, Tool and others of the new metal sound.

Santa Barbara does it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars EVER HAVE THAT ONE CD THAT WON'T GO AWAY?
YOU KNOW WHICH ONE. ITS A CD YOU FORGET YOU HAVE UNTIL ONE DAY YOU'RE ALL "OH YEAH, I'LL PUT THIS IN SLOT 3 OF THE OLD CAR CD CHANGER." TWO MONTHS LATER YOU STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT CD IS IN SLOT 4 BECAUSE YOU KEEP LISTENING TO 3 OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THIS IS ULTRASPANK. A BAND THAT AT FIRST YOU JUST LIKE. BUT THEN YOU LISTEN TO IT. THEN AGAIN. NOW YOU HUM TO YOURSLEF IS "SOOOO IT HAS TO BE THIS WAAAAAY," WHEN YOU BEAT SOME GUY AT SOCOM II ONLINE. THEN THE GUY THAT CUTS YOU OFF ON THE BLVD GETS PULLED OVER AND AS YOU PASS THE FLASHING LIGHTS YOU GURGLE "YOU'RE NOT SO BIG, BOY."

PRETTY SOON YOU'RE HOLDING ULTRASPANK AS THE BENCHMARK TO WHICH YOU COMPARE ALL NEW BANDS ENCOUNTERED. EVEN BANDS THAT PREDATE THEM ARE NOT SAFE. NINE INCH NAILS BECOMES "ULTRASPANK SANS BAD-ASS GUITAR" EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY IS NOW REFERRED TO AS "ULTRASPANK-YOUNG MINUS LYRICS... PROGRAMMING." AND STABBING WESTWARD BECOMES "ULTRASPANK-LITE."

PEOPLE CALL THIS A TOOL-TRIBUTE BAND, AND, THOUGH THEIR STYLES ARE QUASI-SIMILAR, ULTRASPANK IS AS GOOD AS, IN ITS OWN WAY, THE ORIGINAL TOOL EVER WAS. GET THIS IF YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO LISTEN TO IT 4 TIMES ON NON-CONSECUTIVE OCCASIONS. DON'T GET IT IF YOU EVER WANT TO REMEMBER WHAT CD IS IN SLOT 4. AT $2.25, THERE'S PROBABLY MORE CHANGE IN YOUR COUCH THAT IT WOULD TAKE TO BUY THIS; SO BUY THIS. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars better than last
Psychotrance 2001 is filled with great harmonizing beats that interchange to form some wonderful tracks. The last psychotrance was very well done but this album has edged it out as it should. If you are a trance head than this is a must get.

5-0 out of 5 stars D:Fuse comes through with a second excellent mix cd
For me, D:Fuse's "Psychotrance 2000" was a pleasant surprise, as I had not been accustomed to encountering first-rate trance mixes on the Moonshine label (in the past six months or so, there have been several, however, including Christopher Lawrence's latest). In this subsequent volume in the Psychotrance series, D:Fuse has not played it safe by assembling a soundalike mix patterned after "2000," but has plunged headlong into the refreshingly deeper and darker sound that has characterized so many of the trance releases this year. While I would not characterize "Psychotrance 2001" as the best trance mix of the year (for me, that honor currently goes to Sasha and Digweed's amazing 2 cd set, "Communicate") it certainly is among the best. He does include a few tracks that are receiving a lot of play elsewhere--for example, Schiller's "Ruhe," Oliver Lieb's "I'm Not Existing, and the wonderfully haunting song by Carissa Mondavi,"Solid Ground." But one can hardly fault D:Fuse for choosing tracks that are fine enough to be favored by multiple dj's. Overall, he has put together a fine combination of trance tunes and has mixed them well. Considering the low price at which this mix can be purchased, I would say that trance fans will not regret picking up this disc and giving it a listen.

2-0 out of 5 stars a disappointment
I *want* to like this album, I really do. I loved Psychotrance 2000, and had high hopes for the 2001 edition. What a letdown! The bulk of the album is a series of stale, repetitive drum loops with little variation and only the occasional melodic or vocal ornamentation. The last four tracks provide just a tease of redemption, pulling my rating up to two stars...but it just wasn't enough. ... 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

3-0 out of 5 stars A Good CD....
Ok, first let's get the bad stuff out of the way: everything you've heard about this band is true. They are a rap/metal band, one of their rapper/singers has a rather high-pitched voice, they are immature and oversexed, and they are a second-rate Limp Bizkit.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get to the point: they are actually (gulp) good. They are not my favorite band by any means, but they are worth a listen. For serious fans of this group, Crazy Town also have a cool song with Paul Oakenfold called, "Starry-Eyed Surprise". Just thought I'd mention that. Now, onto the tracks:

1.Intro - Stupid intro with some dude saying, "Crazy Town isn't evil, we just cause trouble and have fun. We're not evil, we're not good. We're in between." Psssh. Whatever, man. 2/10

2.Toxic - Standard rap rock track about rocking shows and kicking (...) Lots of cuss words, weird, sludgy beat to it. It's okay, but the rapper who sings the chorus has an irritating voice and lyrics are sub-par. 4/10

3.Think Fast - Song about living life in the fast lane. Pretty much the same, but the delivery is much better than on "Toxic". It has some cool DJ scratching and much better lyrics than the last song. Some unknown rapper guests on this one, his lines are great. 7/10

4.Darkside - Whoa, AWESOME! This album would be a perfect 10 if every song was like this! Catchy chorus, good rap lyrics, one of the 5 best tracks on the album. 10/10

5.Black Cloud - Another INCREDIBLE song with great lyrics. Speaks of depression and drug addiction with really great lyrics like, "Here comes the rain/I project my pain/trying to make sense of these crazy things/I'm a diamond in the rough/could I suffer enough?" and "a thousand cigarettes won't change the way we feel." Another one of the best 5 tracks. 10/10

6.Butterfly - If you've heard of Crazy Town, you've probably heard this song. This is their only real hit. It a kind of ballad with a funky beat sampled from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Funny lyrics about the perfect girl, the perfect love. It's cool, but there's a hard-rock remix of this song that I think is better than the original. One of the 5 best tracks. 9/10

7.Only When I'm Drunk - An immature, cheesy fun song about being drunk and doing things you wouldn't normally do. It's funny, not one of their best. 5/10

8.Hollywood Babylon - Standard rap rock track. Funny, trashy, everything you would expect. 7/10

9.Face the Music - A fight song with more bragging. (...) Some really cool lyrics about dancing with the devil, great track, nearly made it to the top five tracks. 9/10

11.Revolving Door - Alright, this is where their trashiness and machismo starts to get annoying. (...) This song is about one of the rapper needing a revolving door on his house because there are so many ladies coming in and out. He also brags about everything, from the size of his house (...) Bad song. 3/10

12.Players (Only love You When They're Playing)- This is the pure hip-hop track, and it RULES! If this track had got some airplay, it could easily have been their first single instead of Butterfly! The chorus has some great R&B female vocals. One of the best 5 tracks. 10/10

13.B-Boy 2000 - Another hip-hop track with KRS-ONE guesting. The rapping is great on this one! Great hip-hop beat with spiraling guitar riff! Catchy-(...) chorus that says, "I'm a bad-(...) b-boy 2 triple-O/a space-age hip-hop superhero!" One of the 5 best tracks. 10/10

14.(...) Man, sometimes rappers come up with the stupidest [work] for their intros and outros. 2/10

Anyway, this band is not bad, they are very catchy and they do have talent, but if you want teenage-minded, kick-(...) rap/metal, Limp Bizkit is the better choice over Crazy Town. If you want thought provoking metal, choose Tool. If you want rap, get Outkast. If you want the best rap/metal ever, get Rage Against the Machine. But if you want something catchy that has rap in it but also rocks, get some Crazy Town or Limp Bizkit.

Bottom line: for what this band is, they are great. 6/10

crazy crap, the gift of garbage and queers would be a more accurate title. I'm surprised RHCP didn't kick their ass. How much more unoriginal could a "group" be. Pretty little ditty from the Mother's Milk cd was much better. For one, it was meant to be instrumental, and all these fags did was put a bunch of stupid worn out lyrics and a stupid beat that wasn't even made by a drum in it that no one wants to hear, well say maybe a bunch of dumbass preps. Rap, by the way, is not even music. It's just a combination of ripped off music styles with a bunch of macho ignorant words written all over it. I'm glad to see alot of others who are RHCP fans like me agree with me. All you others, you are stupid, bulligerent dickwads and i feel sorry for you that you don't even know what music is

4-0 out of 5 stars Back with the Primitive
Um, dois, trĂȘis, quatro... Soulfly are back with Primitive. This time it's with Mikey Doling (Snot) on guitar and Joe Nunez on drums & percussion. The band is weak in form but powerful in spirit.

The album starts off with "Back To The Primitive" which is a forewarning of what the album is about. "Back to the primitive, Fuck all your politics". The song is dragged out---but if you are part of the Soulfly tribe, then it will server purpose as a form of protest. One of my favorite tracks on the CD is track two, "Pain" which features Grady Avenell (Will Haven) and Chino Moreno (Deftones) on vocals. Grady and Chino's vocals are intense and filled with energy.

Max's vocals have also slightly changed since Sepultura and the previous Soulfly album. You won't exactly find him rapping, but his fast-paced deep-throat screaming may remind you of it.

Another interesting aspect of this album is track four "Jumpdafuckup" which features Corey Taylor of Slipknot. Respectively, the song is in the style of Slipknot. "Jumpdafuckup! Muthafucka u don't understand all my hate! Muthafucka u don't understand all my rage! Muthafucka u don't understand all my pain! Muathfucka u don't understand..."

The tribal influence and lyrics are also back. Track five, "Mulambo" features The Mulambo Tribe with their "ultra backing vocals". But, beyond the expected comes the unexpected: a collaboration with Sean Lennon on track six, "Son Song". His musical talents are remiscent of his fathers (John Lennon) and are almost eerie. Ironically, the song is dedicated to legendary John Lennon and Graziano Cavalera.

Meanwhile, Max's pain towards Dana's (his step-son) death continues to burn, and seems to be rendering his music dry. It doesn't seem to have the same intensity as Soulfly. "Soulfly II" is also a song on this album. Even though it's instrumental, it makes it apparent that the same emotions are still there---even if they are not carried out as intensely.

Next comes a rap song backed by distorted guitar. It is "In Memory Of..." K-RAB, D-LOW, and Lynn Strait (Snot). And the album comes to a strong finish with "Flyhigh" with soothing vocals by Asha Rabouin: "Just let my soul fly, just let my soulfly, just met my soul fly free!!!".

Altogether, Primitive is certainly not a dissapointment, but it is a continuation of their debut album. And this continuation was very much needed. However, we're going to need to see something different next time.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great step forward.
With Soulfly's first album, I was mildly impressed. I couldn't say it was BAD, just not overly impressive. But once again, Max surprises me, and releases this awesome sequel to the first disc. This album was produced by a great producer, Toby Wright (Sevendust, Korn) who once again does his magic on another killer band. Soulfly combine more music styles on here than before, and it comes out bold, fresh, and original, when most bands these days sound boring, tired, and un-original. Part of the new sound is thanks to newly recruited SNOT guitarist, Mike Doling. The music has taken on a life of itself, and despite the neverending guest appearances on this CD, it still stands on it's own. My favorite track of the moment would have to be "Flyhigh" which features some interesting gospel vocals which only add to the quality sound. "Pain" featuring Chino of Deftones and Grady of Will Haven is another favorite, where the frontmen take turns with verses. Corey Taylor almost ruins "JumpDaF---Up" with his bland speaking voice (which I guess can be mistaken for melody?) but the song proves that guest appearances do not make the music. "Terrorist" with Tom from Slayer and "Son Song" with Sean Lennon are two other standouts. Among others, "Bring It," "Boom" and "In Memory Of..." are the ones to check out...

4-0 out of 5 stars Primitive
This is a very unique album. It has the heavy metal laced with the tribal feel. These guys really know how to make it work. This cd is, pretty much, the heaviest you can get. Max is one of the most ferocious screamers to ever grace a metal album. The guest artists really help put some more color into this as well. I really liked hearing from Corey Taylor and Tom Araya, but the highlight of the guests artists has to be Sean Lennon on Son Song. I really think this one is a little more than your typical Nu-metal release. There are a few flaws in the album though. First off, the lyrics can be bad at some points. No disrespect or anything, but alot of these lyrics are terrible. For the most part it doesn't matter though, because most of these are screamed so powerfully that you don't realize or care what he's actually saying. Another thing, I could have done without "In Memory Of.." Incorporating rap on this album just doesn't work. Other than those few mishaps everything is great. The guitar work is creative. There are alot of cool effects and bouncy riffs. The drumming is also worth mentioning because it really captures that tribal feel. These guys are one of the very few bands that can incorporate the tribal beats with the metal guitar. There are also alot of acient instruments played throughout that work extremely well. To sum this all up, I think everyone should be warned of this cd's flaws ahead of time, it's only fair, but this really is a great album that is definitely worth owning. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best cd of 2000
I found out about Glassjaw through hearing about them signing to Roadrunner, and i wanted to check them out, and i also found out about how they appointed Ross Robinson to produce their cd. When i heard them, i was awe-struck, at mostly how real and emotional their music is. Well, the music is just absolutely amazing, Glassjaw would best fit under emocore, yet they are probably the best in the genre. Each song is filled with emotion. The guitars are just awesome, very talented guitarists. Pretty Lush is one of the highlight tracks, it is basically a hardcore song with beautiful sounding fillins and stuff. Ry Ry's Song is definately one of the best, it is a emo punk song, with a really nice "swirl" of guitar, and lots of melody, you'll be singing it, believe me, i know. Lovebites and Razorlines is definately a better track also, it has the really heavy parts with the awesome screaming vocals, then it breaks into a really nice touch of singing drums and guitars, another one you'll be singing. tracks 7-9 are all straightup emo songs, very well written songs, with beautiful singing and melodies. Babe is a straightup hardcore song as well. But the best track on this cd is Siberian Kiss, to briefly describe it, you can say that it is the most beautiful hardcore song ever heard". This song has the ever pounding drums, with the heavy and most beautiful guitars heard since.........i don't know. it is just the best cd ever released on Roadrunner, and for the year 2000. Buy this cd, or forever hold your peace.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glassjaw is Great!
I bought Glassjaw's "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" about a month and a half ago, and the first time I listened to it, I didn't love it. Then, I listened to it again, and I liked it. After that I listened to it, and I absolutely loved it. This is an amazing cd. It is the most emotional music I have ever heard in my life, every single song is totally full of emotion, and the music is really great too. My favorite songs are "Lovebites and Razorlines", "Siberian Kiss", "Ry Ry's Song", "Her Middle Name was Boom", and "Piano". All the songs are great, except "Hurting and Shoving" and "Babe". Oh yeah, they ACTUALLY sound NOTHING like the Deftones. "Motel of the White Locust" sort of does, but that's it, I have no idea what people are talking about, maybe it's because they toured with them it seems easy to compare them to Deftones. BUY THIS CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars This the emocore, i like to hear...
Yeah glassjaw has a unique sound and no can't deny it! I got this from a friends suggestion but i wasn't to sure if i should buy it...Let's just say, im glad i did. Great sing along songs and original lirycs rimends me of such bands like deftones,coheed and cambria, &,lost prophets, which i don't realy listen to any of them except for ca&co.All and all pretty much worth it... having great production and tight melodis with heartfelt songs. Buy it! ... Read more
