Editorial Review

Rap metal has been around ever since 1986 when Run-DMC and Aerosmith joined forces for a remake of "Walk This Way," but it took nearly a decade for Rage Against the Machine to bust the floodgates wide open. Soon after, a stream of percussive hellraisers including Korn, Downset, and Deftones infiltrated the metal market, and they, in turn, sired a new breed fronted by acts like Snot and Limp Bizkit. Three Dollar Bill Y'All, Limp Bizkit's debut album, is a tempestuous collection of divergent styles. Unlike metal acts that try to get "dope," but lack the hip-hop background to legitimately fuse the two genres, Limp Bizkit--which features Wes Borland and House of Pain member DJ Lethal--have the know-how to groove and grind. And instead of launching a one-dimensional Blitzkrieg, Limp Bizkit mixes up its rhythms and tempos to keep its listeners guessing. --Jon Wiederhorn ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An Honest Review
...

Here's the real deal to me...

I listen to a lot of metal (Pantera, Machine Head, Sepultura, Shadows Fall, In Flames) and I really don't think its a bad CD. The production is terrible thanks to Ross Robinson, but otherwise this is a pretty honest CD from a band that has become the equivalent of n'sync. As a band, Limp Bizkit are pretty tight (minus Fred). Wes Borland is a good guitarist, nothing groundbreaking. The rythym section shines though. Sam Rivers lays down some good tracks that carry a few of the songs pretty well such as "Stuck." And John Otto...I gotta say, this guy really ranks up there, I'm serious. I read he played jazz before joining these guys, and it shows. He really is a good drummer. The songs here are definitely the "heaviest" out of their three CD's. I think "Counterfeit", "Pollution", and "Stalemate" are the best on here. The riff's are good, the song structures too. So, yeah, go ahead and think you're cool and diss LB, but this isn't a bad CD. I basically wrote this to all the cool "metal" guys who think they know everything because they listen to Slayer, Megadeth blah, blah, blah. If you don't like it, fine. But don't compare this to them, this isn't speed metal, its Mallcore, plain and simple. That is all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Without question Fred's finest work
Limp Bizkit may have become the worst sellouts ever with "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water" (except for Wes Borland, who was unhappy with Fred's actions), but "Three Dollar Bill Y'All" will always be the band's best CD ever. It's a perfect example of the naked rage that's been fading from a few rap metal bands today (Hed P.E. for example, though they're still a good band).

Wes Borland and Sam Rivers's guitar and bass work is raw and relentless, just like John Otto's drumming, which is the most technical ever done in the band's career. DJ Lethal's turntable work is also impressive and a little atmospheric (especially in "Everything"), but the most memorable member on the CD is the frontman: Fred Durst. His voice may sound whiny at first listen, but he's acting emotional while rapping. And it's super-catchy. Even with his ear-crushing screams, you can almost picture the bloodshot rage (which he once had here) in his eyes.

Every track on here is good, from the chord-crushing "Counterfeit" to the beautiful, eerie atmosphere of "Everything", which will be great to relax to after jumping up and down to the beat of the heavier songs before it. "Pollution" is an awesome opener, and "Stalemate" has a great intro with a hawaiian-sounding guitar (before kicking into a faster pace later). "Sour" is a classic with lyrics that are actually pretty funny, just like those in the moody, slow-paced "Stink Finger"(which IS NOT rip off Tool's "Stinkfist" in any way as some LB haters claim. It's just about a neighbor that made Fred's life miserable).

Bottom Line: Check out this CD. Even if you dislike rapcore, its worth a listen.

2-0 out of 5 stars The only Good bizkit
Before Fred Durst managed to sell out and drag the reputation of Nu Metal with him, Limp Bizkit released this album. While the album isn't terrible like Chocolate Starfish, New Old Songs and Results May Very; 3 Dolor bill isn't that great. The songs Counterfiet and Pollution are actually pretty good, unfortunately Durst turned out to be both of these. Stuck is a song that is fun, but once again nothing special. The rest of the songs fall along these lines except Indigo Flow (it was recorded at Indigo Ranch), all it is Fred thanking everyone who helped get them this far, but its quite pointless. Everything is a song that is over 15 minutes long, is very quiet/boring and you can't make out what is being said. The shotgun effect found on Leech is actually quite funny, that demo is actually pretty cool. But once again I say that this is limp bizkit's only good album. Everything after here was a downward Spiral. This is the only Limp Bizkit Album I ever bought. If you are interesting in what the "good Bizkit" sounded like, just download it. Limp Bizkit will be remembered as Korn's Curse. Korn is one of the only good Nu-metal bands out there. This album is sub par to everything Korn has done. ... Read more

Editorial Review

If Nevermind's sound is familiar now, it's only because thousands of rock records that followed itwere trying very hard to cop its style. It tears out of the speakers like a cannonball, from the punk-turbo-charged riff of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" onward, magnifying and distilling the wounded rage of 15 years of the rock underground into a single impassioned roar. Few albums have occupied the cultural consciousness like this one; of its 12 songs, roughly 10 are now standards. The record's historical weight can make it hard to hear now with fresh ears, but the monumental urgency of Kurt Cobain's screams is still shocking. --Douglas Wolk ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Never Mind is Right
Nirvana is a band which arrived at the perfect time. Selling their wares of teen angst and alienation, they appealed to a wide audience of disaffected Generation Xers. They were a group that played simple and catchy semi-punk rock songs and ultimately made it big. Despite this, I do not dislike Nirvana, but when people start talking about them in the same vein as Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, and other great musicians, I have to laugh. Kurt Cobain was a troubled artist and his lyrics come out honestly and forcefully. But the music itself does not measure up to the all-time rock and roll greats. In one of his songs, Kurt sings, "I'm worse at what I do best and for this gift I feel blessed, I found it hard to find, oh well, whatever, never mind." This lyric as well as the album cover are the band's way of revealing that they sold out to appeal to a broader audience. And make no mistake about it, Nevermind is a sell-out album. Although only subtly dishonest, it is abundantly clear that Nevermind was a slick con-job perpetrated by a band that needed to cash in on the grunge trend. I give it 2.5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe even underated perhaps?
'Nevermind' let down no-one, their fans and newly converted alike appetites had been whetted by "Smells Like Teen Spirit", anthem for a blank generation, for all the people who'd given up before they had started. Kurt Cobain had condensed the collective frustration/despair/apathy into a slice of pop genious not witnessed sinced the Sex Pistols heyday. "Come As You Are" is another piece of semi-acoustic bruised beauty while "Territorial Pissings" is as extreme as the record goes. Most of the other tracks lay somewhere inbetween, Cobain never letting the intensity level down for a minute, whether on the deceptively breezy "In Bloom" or the stinging "Breed". For a three peice, the group made one hell of a racket, but it was a racket which was never less than 100% focused, the Dave Grohl/Chris Novoselic rhythmic powerhouse underpinning every track with diamond-edged precision.

It's fair to say that 'Nevermind' literally changed the face of music, a crushing new sound for all types of music fans to celebrate. A pivotal record for a pivotal group.

If somehow you don't own this record, go out and spend some extremely worthwile cash!

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

2-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizket has lost their touch
The best Limp Bizket album of all time is by far 3 dolla bill. All following albums have been mediocre and satisfy nothing more then the pure MTV neo hardcore audience that want to be with the "in crowd" at junior high school. Just attend a Limp Bizket concert and you will see amazingly young people running scared from the mosh pits with wild eyed fear. Lord knows they then go home to tell their friends that they had "a BLAST" at the show, "moshed the entire show" and "almost got into a fight with a two ton gorilla." The CD does show some effort however with catchy guitar work and reasonably decent mixed backbeats, but thats about the extent of it. Fred Durst is in with the whole Carson Daily, Kid Rock, Eminem TRL crowd that everyone seems to love today. In other words Durst is the Christina Aguilera of hard rock/rap core and it was quite fitting to see them together on stage at this years MTV Video Music Awards. If you want a truly innovative CD I recommend Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory, any Deftones CD, Taproot - Gift (Fred Durst doesnt much like Taproot for some reason *shrug*), or any Pitchshifter cd. Hope this helps.

3-0 out of 5 stars I dunno about this one
There is no doubt that this album will have heads banging all over America and from what I have seen, the UK. The band have selected to smash out a heavier more metal sound on many of these tracks, ie. full nelson, hot dog and rollin' (air raid vehicle). Any Bizkit fan will love these. They have also put in there mellow but heavy bass tracks, ie. livin' it up, my way, and the one. However, the lyrics to these tracks stay typically Limp, rapping and singing about how damn f'ing good they are at partying and rockin'. Now i am not against this but maybe a change in lyrics might be nice. But my main complaint of this album is there move into DR. Dre type rap, not what Bizkit are about at all, no better example than 'getcha groove on', which is very cheesy and typical. Almost gangster rap.

My main worry about Bizkit is their future. It is plainly obvious that they are goin' to sell out. I bought this album in a supermarket alongside the new Spice Girls CD. Not what i would expect. BIZKIT, FOR THE REAL FANS, PLEASE DON'T SELL OUT.

Editorial Review

Love 'em or despise 'em, you've got to give Korn props for kick-starting a new metal movement that blends aggressive hip-hop rhythms with roaring hate-metal riffs. In the wake of the band's 1994 debut, many like-minded groups cropped up, including Deftones, Snot, and Limp Bizkit. But with the release of Korn's disappointing 1996 sophomore effort, Life Is Peachy, the imitators seemed likely to usurp the innovators. Maybe that's why Follow the Leader is so crafty and inspired. Instead of continuing on cruise control, Korn have diversified their formula, experimenting with mood and dynamics while intensifying their melody and noise thresholds. "Got the Life" blends a seductive disco beat and vocals reminiscent of "Epic"-era Faith No More with oppressive guitar chimes and squawks. "Children of the Korn" features a propulsive rap beat, throbbing bass lines, and angry guest vocals by Ice Cube. But just when Korn's groovin' psychedelic fury starts to make listeners see red, the band lashes out with "All in the Family," a hilarious rap-metal diss-fest duet with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, that proves Korn are much more than the sum of their rage. --Jon Wiederhorn ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Follow the LeadeR
Korn- How can a I put how awesome this band in 1,000 words? This hard hitting-hard rock band is pure amazement. Truth is as im writing this review im listening to KoRn right now.

The problem with people today is they dont respect roots. Half the bands today wouldn't have their sound they do if it hadn't have been for KoRn. They were pioneers in the metal/hard rock stage of the 90's. They were infact one of the first bands to use down tuned 7-string guitars.

The self-titled album had already been a hit, and Life is Peachy was a comedic genius of hard rock, why not come up with some hard hitting stuff?

Follow the leader put what most bands dreamed about into music. It is a hard hitting style of beats and guitar riffs that put amazing lyrics sung by their own bag pipe playing Jonathan Davis make one great album. I personnally havent pulled it out of my CD player since I bought it.

Listen, for all you people who don't like Korn, here's a tip, STOP LISTENING TO THEM AND HATING! Korn is simply the best band I've ever listened to and quite frankly this IS the best music I've listened to (in my opinion)

All I can say is, great job guys, make a new CD like this one (although Take a Look in the Mirror was exceptionally great).

5-0 out of 5 stars KoRn's Best CD
After their first two much darker metallic records, KoRn made a wise decision to evolve and grow as a band, instead of beating the same formula into the ground over and over. FTL certainly has a phat tune to it, very modern-sounding and melodic, while still showing their heavy rock and lyrical vitriol have not dimished. KoRn still talk about anger, hate, pain, murderous lust, happiness, paranoia, and other raw emotions coupled with the band's very energetic, edgy, almost manic delivery. Jonathan's frantic, emotional vocals have not changed a bit and Fieldy's bass is still slappy and rapid-fire.
Modern-sounding songs like "Children of the Korn", "Seed", and "B.B.K." are experimentation for the band while songs like, "Freak On a Leash" and "Dead Bodies Everywhere" harken back to Life is Peachy and the self-titled. Perhaps the best thing about their new sound is KoRn seem to have grown up a bit. On Follow the Leader especially, KoRn manage to be powerfully hostile while still giving their music an element of pure fun.
I first got into KoRn after seeing the video for "Freak on a Leash" and later on watching the South park episode where they played, "Falling Away from Me". For those of you you are new to KoRn, this is the perfect place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars Follow ThE LEADER
This was the second CD that I got of Korn's (after Untouchables). I've read lots of reviews of this CD and not too many of them were really positive. Most of them were complaining about how they have CHANGED. A word that has been popping up a lot in the music world. Change.
Well, I, for one, am all for change. I except it. That's why Follow The Leader is one of my favorite albums by Korn. It has a strange pop vibe to it, such as in songs like Got The Life and Freak On A Leash. There's even a few rap songs on the album, like in "Children Of The Korn" and "All In The Family".
However, Korn doesn't just dump their metal sound. It's all still there. Even though Korn changed doesn't mean that they are a terrible band now. They still have rocking tunes and great guitar.
If you like Korn, definatly buy this CD, despite all the crap that people are saying about it. It's a great Korn album to have in a CD collection. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Florida-bred metal-rappers Limp Bizkit sold a million-plus records of their debut largely on the strength of a George Michael cover song. But the band indeed had "Faith" and the group's second outing proves that the Bizkit have the goods. Still, it seems as if boastful frontman Fred Durst is loading the band's deck again, this time by including scads of guest vocalists, such as Stone Temple Pilots' singer Scott Weiland, Method Man from Wu-Tang Clan, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. (In fact, Korn gave Limp Bizkit a leg up in the industry.) But the 16 diverse yet cohesive tracks on Significant Other don't need any help. Not as heavy as their mentors Korn--or as they are on their debut--Bizkit give Everlast a run for his money on the tuneful and appealing "Rearranged." "Just Like This" is another winning hip-hop and rock entry, while the amusing and memorable "Nookie" (as in "I did it all for the nookie") has self-deprecating lyrics not unlike the Offspring's "Self-Esteem." Bizkit segues with ease from pleasing rock and hip-hop amalgam to spooky Tool territory on "Don't Go Off Wandering" to moshable moments in the entreaty "Show Me What You Got." Significant Other may be hard to categorize, but it's easy to like. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Nookie can't save this mediocre-at-best album.
I heard "nookie" on MTV 5 million times before i finally took the time to borrow the CD from my friends's brother. All i can say is that i'm glad i didn't spend $ on it. Nookie is my favorite song on the album, but probably because its mainstream and catchy as hell. I really appreciate what Fred Durst has tried to do here but he just couldn't pull it off. Three Dollar Bill Yall is unlistenable at least in my opinion. But i hate rap so if you like rap i'd recommend it over Significant Other. Getting back to the music...No Sex and Rearranged are more melodic songs which are slightly better than the rap-metal tracks which drag down the rest of the album. However, rearranged just doesn't hold together and Fred doesn't have the voice to do anything but scream. No sex is marginally better but if i wanted good rock and roll, trust me i wouldn't have turned to limp bizkit. In the end, Limp Bizkit is too rap for rock lovers and too rock for rap lovers. Their idea is a good one but it just isn't my style.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best LB ever had to offer!
Okay, you read my review on "Chocolate Starfish", now its one step back to Limp Bizkit's prior effort "Significant Other". This, according to me was the best album Limp Bizkit had to offer till date. Fred, Wes, Joh, Sam and Lethal were inseperably directed their collective talent towards the establsihment of Limp Bizkit as a Nu-Metal Heavy Weight and also find a deeper philosophy in their music, unlike their rather random debut. This was the first time they had an all-star lineup which includes Jonathan Davis of koRn, Scott Weiland of STP, Method Man of Wu-Tang Clan. Here is how the album goes:
01 Intro -- Damn weird and totally Limp Bizkit.
02 Just Like This -- Swingin Hip-Hop beats courtesy of John Otto.
03 Nookie -- He did it all for the Nookie. The flow continues.
04 Break Stuff -- The heaviest song on the album!Anger unleashed!
05 Re-Arranged -- Some people may buy the whole godamn record just for this song. Its the deepest and the most beautiful song that Limp ever made. Fred shows he can sing too, not only that, he can sing beautifully as well.
06 I'm Broke -- Continues where Nookie left last.
07 Nobody Like You -- Featuring Jonathan Davis and Scott Weiland.
08 Don't Go Off Wandering -- Uncanily weird.
09 9 Teen 90 Nine -- Don't Stop! It's 1999 baby! Swing!
10 N 2 Gether Now -- Awesome rhymes dropped by Method Man.
11 Trust? -- Probably doesnt belong on this album, but its there.
12 No Sex -- A rather philosophical song, "Dirty Sex!".
13 Show Me What You Got -- Another Thank-you song.
14 A Lesson Learned -- Isn't is supposed to be "Learnt"??
15 Outro -- Sick, and annoying as usual.

That's it hope it was useful. Reviews on the rest of the Limp albums coming soon!
