5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have For HC-dudes
I've know Shelter for many,many years now and they've always made good HC. This is an album with a message.Especially the Art and Garfunkel-cover 'I'm A Rock' is a nice display of good-quality music.I must say the album sounds punk the first few times but it remains Krishna-influenced.It's a Must-Have for diehard HC-fans!!

5-0 out of 5 stars New Sound
First of all, let me just say Shelter is one of the greatest bands outthere today. Ray Cappo is a genius and is very devoted to Krishna andwrites his music in the service of Krishna. I myself being a student ofKrishna Consiousness find that very respectable. This album does not soundmuch like the earlier Shelter, which was pure hardcore. The newer Sheltersound is tighter a little less distorted and more hooky. It's not quitepunk-pop, but it is not pure hardcore either. It's a middle road. However,the songs are all great, though I was a little dissapointed that this cd isonly half an hour long. I could have easily done with more great music froma truly innovated and enlightened act!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is not pop punk its good NYHC
ok ok to the guy who wrote this is a ok cd and it sounds pop punkey well you don't know what your talking about. I dont now if you now the history with cappo and his bands but this is clasic. And its not buddhism orhinduism its Krishna. Please dont say this cd is pop punk its hard corestraight up from NYThis cd is great folowing in the foot steps of othergreat cds. If people think this is MTV pop punk its not shelter would neversell out. If you ana here great older cappo stuff listen to better than a1000 and the best SXE NYHC band ever youth of today. In closing this cd isthe best shelter cd to date its great Cappo and shelter and Y.O.T rules ... 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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good
mmmm.... i like chocolate and hot dogs so this album gets 5 stars. LIMP BIZKIT RULES!!!!!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizket
Limp Bizket is worthless and nothing good to listen to. My ears bleed whenever I hear it. Its terrible, and its just a younger version of Linkin Park..but mostly RAP..Its garbage....Its pure stupid. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Punk rock is meant to be played loud and snotty. Blink 182 are a San Diego punk rock threesome whose interest in arrested development has led them to a sparkling array of sex jokes that cover everything from anal sex to masturbation to... Well, you get the idea--and that's just the between-song banter. This limited-edition live collection--a holding pattern until the band's fifth studio album is released in 2001--features a slam-dunk collection of the band's hits, fan favorites from their various studio albums, and new tunes ("Blew Job" among the enlightened tracks). One additional studio track, "Man Overboard" (already a hit on a radio near you), packs a harder punch than most, thanks to the studio finesse. But mostly these are revved-up versions of songs to break a skateboard by. With the added appeal of a color booklet and about seven minutes of "stage banter" tacked on at the end, guaranteed to either leave you in stitches or have you grounded for a month. --Rob O'Connor ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best blink album i ever had!!!!!!best of all the albums
This album really gives me a feeling about teenage life, drinking beer, smoking some pots and getting home late at nights. This albums gives me soundtrack everytime i sneak at the back door of our house. It gives you a freaking feeling what teenage life is all about......and also to be in love!!!!this band thaught me how to love....Let's give it up for love....

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Blink-182 album yet.
This is definitely the best Blink 182 album ever recorded. I got it after they stopped making it and it is definitely worth the money I payed for it. Get this album it Rocks!!!!! They have crude humor and infamous in-between trash talk. They have new songs that have been specially recorded for this album and they are, Family Reunion: Not the cleanest 9/10 Stars. Blewjob: Really repetetive: 8/10 Stars. The Country Song: Very funny!! 10/10 Stars. Man Overboard: Really cool song and you can only find it on this album other than singles. They also have infamous trash talk in the last 29 Tracks. Track 39 is a song, but it is really random.

5-0 out of 5 stars New Blink CD review
The new blink CD is finally here and it is probably the best one yet. it has past favorites along with some new ones. the banter in between songs is funny, however did not have as many curses as blink really does in concert. i recommend it to any blink fan at least 12 years old since the humor is sometimes crude, but not overly explicit or raunchy. ...

Editorial Review

After two years off following the release of the genre-expanding Nimrod, the usually insouciant trio Green Day are open to some weighty self-analysis. Gone are the raging rants, cartoonish antics, and anthropological musings about the punk scene, replaced by an introspection that brings to mind Michael Stipe and Bono. Like the U2 frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong still hasn't found what he's looking for, but he knows where he's been and is eager to move past the days when Green Day were considered the clown princes of rock. Witness "Jackass," which cautions, "Everybody loves a joke, but no one likes a fool." Proving that they aren't fools, Green Day take a substantial step forward, exploring new rhythms, sonics, and subjects. While many of the tracks are still cheeky and infectious, the deceptively simple melodies belie a quest for meaning, faith, and fulfillment. There's a tentative optimism here that's tempered by irony and flashes of self-loathing. Still, Warning transcends the darkness that clouded 1995's Insomniac. No longer so under the sway of the Buzzcocks and the Ramones, this time Armstrong and company dip into the early rock canon--the Beatles and Bob Dylan, among them. As a result, their first self-produced album is more "Nowhere Man" than "Blitzkrieg Bop." --Jaan Uhelszki ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Smartest reviewer
The CD is great Green Day is one of the best Punk bands around. Don't listen to smartest reviewer he has nothing to do with his time and listens to the music like the rest he is some what in the closet and has to keep an image.

1-0 out of 5 stars my fav band, honey
imagine me playing 2 or 3 chords over and over kicking a tree with out rhythm and screaming in an annoying voice,

(...)

there you have it. that's about as much talent as the actual green day has. i'm glad to sum it up for. you could probably consider me the evil version of green day. what makes my one man band even more evil is i don't have that much more skill than green day, which as you can imagine i have none just like the actual green day. yeah, that's your typical pop punk band. one thing punk and pop punk bands have in common is the zero skill/talent factor. look mtv, i can make crappy music too, where's my video and music award? there's something there for the real, true punkers too. i write lyrics more intelligent than the political statements their beloved dirty bands have. when i say dirty, i mean the band members don't shower (probably for the political statement). i mean the true punkers hate green day so they must love my 23 second song about how green day sucks and the 2 chords and hitting something chaotically, oops, i meant drumming. i forgot drummers don't need to be good anymore like what you find in almost any other genre of music.

THIS ALBUM HAS MANY AWESOME SONGS BUT NOT MY FAVORITE GREEN DAY ALBUM. DOOKIE OR AMERICAN IDIOT IS THE WAY TO GO IF YOUR JUST GETTING STARTED WITH GREEN DAY'S MUSIC. ... Read more

Editorial Review

If Renegades proves to be the last Rage Against the Machine albumto feature singer Zack de la Rocha, who quit the band after nine years, it's a cool way to go out. Produced by Rick Rubin, Renegades is a salute to the artists who made Rage what they are--or were. While it's easy to hear Rage's rap roots in songs from Afrika Bambaataa, EPMD, and Volume 10, it's more interesting to see theirtake on rock in its classic and punk forms. Rage capture the raw spirit, if notthe quite the intensity, inherent in the MC5 classic "Kick Out the Jams." A superior second livetake appears at the CD's end, followed by a concert version of Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," with help from B-Real and Sen Dog. Devo's "Beautiful World" is rendered quietly unrecognizable, while Minor Threat's "In My Eyes" is given a wonderfully melodic, ultra-aggro treatment. The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" takes on a techno vibe that's unsettling and Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" is also effectively modernized. Ultimately, Renegades is a must-have for its song selection, musical execution, and the unhappy fact that it's likely the ultimate offering from one of rock's most musically and politically relevant lineups. --Katherine Turman ...

5-0 out of 5 stars not the best rage cd but still worth a listen...
how could anyone give any rage cd 1 star? i think they were the most talented band of the 90's.i love the bass and drums on this cd and the guitar isn't at top-notch but this still is a great cd. alot of these new bands could take a lesson from tom because most of these "nu" bands need dj's and turntables but if they were even remotely talented as this band theyd only need 4 people instead of 7 or even 8 people in the band.and for the record rage broke up and they will never release a new cd, and for the people who dont know, the remaining rage members are in a new band called audioslave and are just as good as rage.audioslaves sophmore cd OUT OF EXILE comes out May 24th.go buy it ive already heard the entire cd and its amazing its 10x better than there self-titled cd.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the Rage I knew
I know I shouldn't be reviewing this CD after only hearing it once, but I don't know if I could sit through it again.This isn't Rage Against the Machine.Did Tom run out of riffs?Did they lose their creativity?I thought they were awesome as a band creating their own songs.This CD sounds very little like their first three CDs.On some songs, Zach becomes too much of a rapper and it loses its rock.In others, it has no power and sounds nothing like Rage Against the Machine.A lot of the songs are boring with riffs that are no where near catchy.This is by far their worst and I very much wish I hadn't bought it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic...
If you take a look at Rage's rating for all four studio albums by customers on Amazon.com, they're all 4 and 1/2 star rated. That was how good this band was. Although this page is for Renegades, I just want to comment on Rage's music on the whole. Doesn't it seem that most rock groups nowadays sing about relationships, heartbreaks and the likes? And every rock group vocalist seems to have that high pitched-punk rock voice? Well, Rage Against The Machine was different. They had things to say, they projected their views through their songs. They were one of the most powerful and influential voices on many many political agendas. And hey, even if you don't agree with what they have to say, you still have to appreciate these guys on a musical level. I have all 4 studio albums and listen to them very often until today. In fact, I'm listening to Renegades right now. No other group has longetivity like this band.

Everyone in Rage knows what to do, and how to do it. When they create music, it's not planned...it just IS. Zack de la Rocha is the ever energetic vocalist, he definitely puts the Rage in RATM. I believe that his voice was the perfect one to go with the group, although I do respect Chris Cornell and think he's a talented vocalist as well but it was de la Rocha which harnesses the power and the momentum. Tom Morello is one of THE most gifted guys around when it comes to playing the guitar. His creativity in creating sounds I never knew a guitar could create, astounds me everytime I listen to their albums. The squeaks and bleeps from him sound like something a DJ with a turntable would do. Bassist Timmy C complements Tom's sounds to create something even better. And Brad Wilk is exceptional on drums. Watching them live is the ultimate experience, especially their open air shows. It is definitely a wild and thrilling ride.

To conclude, I just want to say that if you're reading this and still contemplating whether to fork out your cash to get this or any other Rage album...please do. To be honest, at first I just downloaded their albums but they were so good i bought all 4 albums. They are well worth it and you'll find yourself not just casual listeners to Rage, but a hardcore fan of theirs. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Papa Roach is a breed apart in the nearly overfull rap-rock arena. The Northern California-bred quartet lacks the bluster of Limp Bizkit and the political agenda of Rage Against the Machine, instead serving up an ultra-intense, highly personal brand of funk-punk-rock-rap on their stunning major-label debut. Closer in spirit to Faith No More than Korn, Papa Roach's signature sound is defined by Coby Dick's raspy, forceful vocals. Dick's pointed lyrics astutely address everything from divorce ("Broken Home") and attention deficit disorder ("Thrown Away") to alcoholism ("Binge"). Jerry Horton's memorable, melodic, and insinuating guitar lines and the band's aggro, moshable rhythms provide added weight. Papa Roach's intensity is never forced; the songs here are varied, discrete, tuneful, and cohesive. Indeed, the mellow, reggae- like "Tightrope" is as compelling as the commanding "Last Resort," making Infest one of the most arresting heavy-music debuts of 2000. -- Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Album Ever Made
This must be the single greates album ever made.Nothing else i have even compare to this except "The Sickness".

Every song on here is worth a 5/5 except "Tight Rope" and "Never Enough" which deserve a 4/5.Coby realy brings out his inner demons and aggresition on this album.This is what put Papa Roach on the market.

His Rap-Metal is flawless.There isn't too much rapping as Rage Against the machine sometimes tends to do.The great part is it isn't all obnocious screaming.

As i said before, this album is No.1 and probably always will be with "The sickness" Following Close behind.I realy wish Coby would have made Love Hate Trajetysound like this album did.He didn't and the sales #'s show.When you have something good going for you dont try to change it."If it aint broke dont fix it"the best lesson you'll ever learn.

Buy this album.You will not be dissapointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good album but...
I'm sure someone has already said this but, I'll go ahead and remind everyone that the single from this album "Last Resort" is a COMPLETE RIP-OFF of Iron Maiden's Ghengis Khan from their album Killers. The riff sound EXACTLY the same. I used to listen to this album every day when I was younger. Papa Roach is a good band but, if you are into hard rock and metal you MUST check out Iron Maidens first 7 albums (All of them are good but, the first seven are complete MASTERPEICES). Anyways if you want to hear for yourself download Iron Maidens Ghengis Khan then Papa Roaches Last Resort and you'll see what I mean.

1-0 out of 5 stars more laughable stuff...
from the guys who brought you last resort, the new lp "caught between my parents", about a bunch of guys who are near 30 are still whining about their upbringing to any 9 year old that will buy it.trash........ ... Read more

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 ...

i used to like them when iwas 10 but i hate it now the only reason i gave two stars is because of one step closer which isnt that great

you don't need solos to make good music. go "headbang" to some def leppard or some winger...ass clown.

1-0 out of 5 stars Crappy modern rock band
This stuff SUCKS...it's really funny to laugh at how all you people can only say that it's "emotional" or "there is good rapping"....how about if there is actually "a good guitar solo" or mabye "NO rappin"
