2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I got this CD because I loved their radio hits "Bring Me To Life" and "My Immortal." While those songs are beautiful, they are not representative of the rest of the album. Although I tried and tried to get into this CD, the hard rock teen goth style just isn't my cup of tea, and the lyrics are too depressing. If you are a fan of bands such as Linkin Park or Seether, you might enjoy this. However, if you only like "My Immortal" and "Bring Me To Life" because of Amy's powerful vocals, you'd be better off listening to Tori Amos or Sarah McLachlan.

4-0 out of 5 stars October music
What else can I add that the other reviews haven't already said? For me music usually unlocks feelings and emotions that very often are tied to places in time and seasons. This album feels like October in Maine to me. October is without a doubt the best month there is and if you ever have to be in Maine, October is the best time to be there. This album evokes the early twilight and cool breezes coming off Casco Bay, moving through the autumn leaves. Really an amazing album. Amy Lee is an amazing vocalist and I'd recommend this album to anyone who has an inner goth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Audioslave
Being a lover of great music, including the political genre of RATM as alot of you like to refer them as, and also Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, and loving AudioSlave so much because of the devout attention they pay to the fact that they are a band and no one is going to do a solo CD, this CD jumped out as a fantastic result of guys loving what they do, collaborating in that and wanting to test the spiritual, blues, funk and rock envelope.Put some good headphones on, adjust your bass, treble, fade, etc. and listen to the words, the bassline, the drumbeat and the fact that without having to shove it down your throat or make a point, they CAN make you think. Rock snobs, do not apply.Cornell's voice is without a doubt at its best and he seems happy and content.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another good album, no signs of fading here!!!!
I bought this album the day it came out, and the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you.Sure, nickelback has a sound that hasn't changed much from Silver Side Up, but that's what many good rock bands do, find a sound and continue to evolve it.This album is multiplatinum for a reason.It bridges gaps over many radio formats and listeners.SO they release different songs to different stations, have many fareweather fans, ect...that is what they are in the music business for, to get their music heard by anyone who wants to listen. I myself prefer the heavier songs on the album.But the album as a whole is pretty solid stuff.
1-0 out of 5 stars Album Number 5 but sounds like "number 2" pun intended.
Title says enough. Rockstar is the last song on the album and it is being played on the top 40 stations. Change the title to Pop star. get them a cover on Teen Dreamz Magazine. "stay skinny"

3-0 out of 5 stars I've said it before; I'll say it again:
"at least they released the right songs."

tool is weird because it takes all the sounds I was alredy hearing in my head and is able to make it into a song. when I am coming down,(thanx hofman) that whole whine changing pitch is alredy in my head before I even herd this song. so Its getting a chance to reveb in my head. You dont just listine to it. there is an interaction there. it also amazes me how they get that sound. you can challange every band to make new material and you still wont be able to get that sound and it just wont happen. I also like when they try to put tool in a genre. tool should be its own classifacation until further justifacation on this revelation and plausible hesitation w/o retaliation or condemnation............tion

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best from Tool, but still leagues ahead of anyone else...
Tool are, of course, one of the greatest bands on the planet, and are therefore held to a higher standard than other ordinary 'rock groups'. I think its safe to say they've achieved cult status in the course of their career, and each new release is examined by the legions of Tool freaks like some mysterious artefact discovered on a distant planet. 10,000 days was highly anticipated (to put it mildly), and took its own sweet time getting here. Like many other Tool fans, I bought it immediately upon its release, and... was not disppointed. It doesn't cut as mercilessly as Lateralus, but after repeated listenings, I feel I am only beginning to penetrate its mysteries. A measure of its brilliance when most rock albums these days grow tired within a week or two. The band are incredible on this thing, particularly the guitarist, Adam Jones, who we can now consider as the leading master of the instrument. Maynard is Maynard, and does his thing like only he can. The songs are long, yes, but so what? A band this great needs room to explore and that's exactly what they do, taking us along for a wild ride in the process. Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of Lateralus (what does?) 10,000 Days is a fantastic album (in a really cool package) and no Tool fan will be disappointed. The only niggle I have is that there is a bit of filler on the album which shouldn't be there. Not after five years of navel-gazing and rumination (or were they actually working on their tans on the beaches of Majorca?). If there were two more great songs here instead of the noodling bits, this album would get 5 stars, no problemo. Let's just pray the next one comes a bit quicker... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Phobia
One of the best rock albums that I own. Just as good as We Are Not Alone and Saturate... probably even better.
3-0 out of 5 stars Fear Phobia...
As a big fan of BB's first two albums, I found this one to be a little dissapointing.All of the songs sort of blend together in an un-exciting way.There are about 3 songs that I really enjoy on the album, and that is only because they had to grow on me after repetitive play.I think perhaps they have matured in the wrong direction, or not at all.

3-0 out of 5 stars BB's PHOBIA : Should You Buy?
Breaking Benjamin in definately one of my top 10 bands of all times but I will never give a band bias for any reason .... With that being said.... Phobia to me seems like Breaking Benjamin tried too hard to compete with themselves.Songs like "So Cold", "Follow Me", "Break My Fall", and "Polyamorous" (from a different CD) gave Breaking Benjamin the flare that is oh so good. Little can be done to match their past music ... and yet they tried. They tried to completely change the guitar solos, vocals, beats, harmonics, and feel of each song so that their music would be as new and original as ever. I personally think they tried to hard but some people enjoy it. "Evil Angel"? nothing special...thats all I can say. "Had Enough"? Edgy and Upbeat, uses Ben's vocals at their best. In all its a descent song, I like it. "You Fight Me"? That exact point I was talking about earlier ... Tried desperately to be original and its just not Breaking Benjamin ...Also has some girly sounding vocals ... DOnt like it. Now, best for last."Diary of Jane"? Excellent song .. In my honest opinion, this is the only song on the entire CD that can compete with their old music. Different beat that works, edgy music and vocals that arent over the edge. Lyrics really dont do anything for me but I adore this song's feel and Diary of Jane is in my top 4 BB songs.

There is no question when I tell you that Amy rocks out loud live! She definately knows how to work the crowd. During her performance, she and the rest of the band do a KoRn cover of "Thoughtless" (which I LOVE) and also perform two other songs not found on the U.S. version of 'Fallen' including Breathe No More (from Elektra soundtrack) and Farther Away (from the Bring Me to Life Single and/or Jap. version of Fallen) Of course, any true Ev fan would already know all of that info. The dvd includes the entire live performance, all the music vids from Fallen, and some behind the scenes footage of the whole band. (Some of it is really funny) A great buy. ... Read more

Ok, i bought this album because i liked the first one's sound.In that respect, one x did not disappoint in the least.They have creative, catchy riffs.The drums are simple but they work.The lead singer's voice does sound better in this effort than the first cd.I am pleased overall by the sound.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great CD
This CD seems to have a lot of positive reviews, so I'll keep mine short.I saw Three Days Grace in concert as an opening band a few years ago, and I liked them so much I went out and bought their first CD.I really liked it, although there were a few songs on there I don't play that much.But, the other songs made the CD a major favorite of mine.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well Rounded and Full of Power Musically and Emotionally
This is the first album in years that I have bought and enjoyed almost every song.Usually I buy two or three of the songs I like off of an album to save myself some money, but this was a great album.It's powerful lyrics, heavy riffs and overall full sound just blew me away at first listen.I have it in my car, and I haven't taken it out in over a week even when my total drive time is two hours a day.I am so impressed with the way they've matured and haven't sold out at all. A great rock album, one that I keep suggesting to all my friends. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best.
You know why Trivium are the NEW Metallica??? BECAUSE THEY RIP THEM OFF IN EVERY ASPECT THEY CAN...
3-0 out of 5 stars I like it, but not as much as Ascendancy
I'd give The Crusade a 3.5 star rating (I'd give Ascendancy 4.5...I love that record).I like The Crusade a lot, but it took a few listens to grow on me.It's an entertaining listen with solid riffs and nice leads and solos.Some of the lyrics are good, some not so...I do appreciate the obvious political/spcial themes of some of the tracks.I do like the singing, as I'm an old school metal fan, and I don't consider it a sell-out as many have called it.However, I got to know Trivium through Ascendancy, and later Ember to Inferno, and the change on The Crusade kind of threw me for a loop even though I knew before hearing the album this was the direction they were taking.I used to hate the screaming and Ascendancy was one of the records that finally got me to "get over it."lolAnyway, this is a good record with obvious Metallica, Megadeth and Iron Maiden influence on it.If you like metal without the screaming, this is definitely worth picking up. ...

Editorial Review

The notion that rock must perpetually break new ground and reinvent itself is the odious legacy of 10 too many years of rock-crit navel gazing, and one that young Australian power trio Wolfmother stands gleefully on its head with their effusive debut. Hardly surprising to find a new generation's reaction to a decade of shoe-gazing alternative rock angst to be a return to the guilty pleasures of unabashed, blues-based stadium rock--even if they seem unsure whether they're channeling the early Zep scream 'n' sludge frenzy of the single "Woman" or adopting The White Stripes' stripped-down ethos on "Apple Tree" and elsewhere. They bravely mix suspect '70s lyrical thematics ("White Unicorn," "Where Eagles Have Been," "Tales") with usual suspects like Sabbath ("Dimension"), stir in the neo-prog of "Colossal," "Witchcraft," and "Tales," (the latter complete with Tull-savvy flute break), then toast Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age on "Mind's Eye" and elsewhere. Their frightfully funk-challenged "Love Train" gets promptly derailed, making one yearn for a hit of Eagles of Death Metal for relief, but its wreckage only proves how far Wolfmother is willing to push the envelope in forging their often intoxicating evocation of the past as future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid but not Unified
Wolfmother creates genuinely good music on their self-titled debut. Many of the songs are catchy and throwbacks to the great classic rock artists of the 70's and 80's. Therein lies the only problem with this album. All the songs may have well been recorded by different artists. The band, instead of using their own style, seems to have paid homage to a different band in each of their songs. I am, however, optimistic that with future releases the band will find their own style. The instrumentation is great, and the vocals are excellent. Buy it for it's odd neo-nostalgia to the great artists of the 70's, and buy it to discover an emerging new band.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre garage band tries to cash out from '70s hard rock
This is simply bogawful. Annoying vocals (another Robert Plant wannabe --- I've lost count already!) coupled with substandard, boring and repetitive riffs played by a garage band who struck a record label deal.Sorry, but these rookies are just too lame and pretentious to compare them to any hard rock band who played in the '70s.
5-0 out of 5 stars Sabbath returns!!
This is like early Black Sabbath for the 21st Century, only lacks Tony Iomis soaring guitar solos.If you loved Iron Man, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, this is the album for you.Check out the website too, very cool.The tracks will grow on you, but Witchcraft and Joker and the Thief really stand out. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing like before
If you're anything like me, then you probably plugged this disc in expecting to hear driving rhythms accompanied by mindless vocals: testosterone fueled screeming, snarling, growling, and incomprehensible lyrics that wouldn't hold much value even if you could understand them.Basically then, all the same components that permeate most modern metal/heavy metal acts such as Slipknot-from which Stone Sour was born- and the like.It seems to be a fair assumption because that's the direction that their debut album took.That's what Slipknot, Corey Taylor's other band, have been doing for years now.Start to listen and you will still find some of that in Stone Sour's music, but it's held to a minimum, and they also have something more to offer.There's a softer and more melodic side to their music than there has been in the past.A number of songs are steered in the direction of alternative rock and alternative metal.This is evidenced mainly by such songs as "sillyworld", "Through Glass", "Socio", and "Zzyzx Rd."They do start to regress into their old style in the middle of the CD with tracks 5-7: "Made of Scars", "Reborn", and "Your God", but they rebound in a big way toward the end of the disc.Another positive is that some of their harder edged songs are more listenable.Take for example "30/30-150" and "Come What(ever) May", two of the highlights.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bluesy riffs reminiscent of GN'R and Aerosmith in their prime, BUT...
...there's also some filler (as per usual with Buckcherry). Songs like Next 2 You are catchy and cool, but not really as substantial as one would hope; comparatively the sleaze-rock hit Crazy Bitch is cool but almost tries too hard to capture the spirit of misogynistic '80s hard rock (think It's So Easy meets 2 Live Crew). The guitars are bluesy and capture the vibe of Perry and Slash and Josh Todd's have the raw screech of Steven Tyler, but overall I still think this band has a bit of a way to go before they become truly great - their albums tend to have a bit of filler and this is no exception. All they need now is a substantial hit like "Sweet Child O' Mine" and to put out a few songs that aren't quite as simplistic.

At last, a rock band for the 21st century is back with an awesome CD that I would reccommend to everyone.My sister, who listens almost exclusively to Pop is in love with Buckcherry's 15 as well. What are you waiting for?Add this to your Cart!

I'm sick of two things in all the reviews I've read. 1How much they hate Mosley the lead singer 2How much they love Mosley the lead singer. The weird thing about music people can't seem to grasp is that music isn't something you can rate and say that what you think is the law. No, music means something different to everybody and different people like different kinds of music. I think that girl's voice is amazing and she sounds like the voice of a thousand angels but there are alot of people who think she sounds like a drunk hitchhiker and his buddies in a basement. The bottom line is this is an albulm you have to decide on for yourself, don't trust the lovers or the hatters in this case.

5-0 out of 5 stars Venting Panorama colorfully melodized
I bought this CD on a whim while browsing the "up and coming" section at Target.I bought it along with Blue October.What I don't understand is why Blue October is getting more radio time, they're just "ok" to me.Flyleaf is an intense, vocal, wide range of emotional color that exudes a venting panorama.There's the heavy riffs and sizzling drums in the background that vibes so well with Lacey Moseley's wide ranging, beautifully melodic vocals.But she also has this passion and intensity that blends so well with the heavy rock feel.I've always enjoyed a melodic female voice mixed with heavy rock/pop sounds.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good CD
I bought Flyleaf's CD over the weekend and just had to put up a comment about it.I would not rate this CD my favorite that I have bought in the past year but I would certainly put it into the top, oh I don't know, 20.It is a good CD having many good tracks on it, but listening to Fully Alive on the radio then buying the CD and listening to the entire CD, the CD was different than what I expected, so that could be altering my judgement on it.There is a bit too much screaming on the first track and another on it, I don't remember which one.Buy the CD because it is worth your money, just don't buy it because you really like Fully Alive because many of the songs on the CD are not like that song, they are a bit heavier than that.A good CD overall and I will be buying their next CD coming out. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars They Have Reached The Top
Mastodon may very well have become the pinnacle of all modern metal with their newest album "Blood Mountain." Now of course Mastodon has been ahead of the game quite some time. 2003's "Remission" was a crushing frenzy that showed the band's technical and innovative approach to song writing, while still hinting at greater things to come. And with 2004's "Leviathan," greater things did come. Not only was it a bold move made in the act of creating a concept record about Moby Dick, but Mastodon further expanded their technique, adding atmospheric and melodic elements to their sound in favor of creating something completely original and different from what they had done before. So how would they follow with their much anticipated third full length album "Blood Mountain?" As if they weren't already masterminds, this record further solidifies Mastodon as the premier innovators in today's metal world. From start to finish "Blood Mountain" is nothing short of a masterpiece, and if this is the kind of evolution and song writing we can expect Mastodon to expand upon in the future, I can only ask myself, "Where and what is next?"
5-0 out of 5 stars Mountainously brilliant
Mastodon's first album, Remission, was a gigantic shock to the system of modern heavy metal, combining ferocious grooves, head-spinning technicality, and fearsomely creative songwriting for the sort of truly singular sound a precious few bands in any genre can truly lay claim to.The followup, Leviathan, a musical interpretation of Melville's Moby Dick, packed more than enough dramatic weight to suit its title and subject matter, and saw the band branching out into more melodic and accessible territory without abandoning the complexity and pummelling heaviness that formed the base for their appeal.Now comes album number three (and number one on a major label after defecting from Relapse), Blood Mountain, marked once again by increasingly adventurous progressions in both musical and lyrical content, with a near-total abandonment of verse/chorus song structures and an epic fantasy/adventure lyrical concept running throughout.And once again, the band's skills have kept pace with their ambition, as Blood Mountain is quite possibly the most innovative, fascinating, and downright brilliant metal album of this decade, worth every second of the numerous listens it takes to fully absorb the experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, but WOW!
Someone who has listened to the other Mastodon albums: Leviathan, Remission, and Lifesblood over and over and over, like me, thinks they know what to expect from Mastodon. Catchy and steel-hard riffs, growling poetic vocals. And since they switched from Relapse to Reprise, gaining a much bigger production budget, you'd think the acoustics would sound different, maybe a little less fuzzy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two Words......Ear Candy
Okay, to start off this review, I am NOT a kid. In the middle of August I was at the music store browsing for something new. Then I remembered my friend telling me about Tool and saying how great they were. So I decided to give them a listen and picked up AEnima. When I got home, I put the album into my cd player and pressed the play button. At first I felt many mixed emotions, like I thought the album was way too weird but being the person I am, gave the cd a second chance and boy was I glad I did! after about a third listen I started to realise how amazing AEnima really was. A materpiece that is perfect in everyway.

Everything about Tool's fourth album is an experience, starting with the packaging, which consists of liner credits printed on a translucent plastic sleeve over the CD and a booklet that layers anatomical representations atop one another--the first page pictures musculature and blood vessels; the next, bones; the third, internal organs; and so on. It's worth describing the packaging of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the best music I've heard
Everything about TOOL is great.They are just geniuses.Everything from the guitar, the baseline, drums, vocals, is good, everything!definetively worth checking them out!
5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Genius
One of the best albums in my collection.A powerful album with great songs.The title track Lateralus is probably the best song on the album.It doesn't rock as much as Undertow or Opiate, but I think this album captures the true spirit of the band.Get punched in the face with the Grudge, then mellow out a bit, then get hit with Schism and Parabola, then go into 30 minutes of deep trance.Awesome!What a perfect album.I think some of the reviewers don't like this album because it isn't true "Progressive rock". You're right it isn't. But that doesn't mean that the album is a failure. They should try to feel this album instead of trying to desect it.

5-0 out of 5 stars words cannot describe.
what can i say about this album. words cannot do it justice and it seems like everthing's already been said before. i guess i will just be one of the millions by saying that this album is a pure unadulterated masterpiece. it gets that claim for a reason. i think - no, i KNOW that in the future this album will be seen as one of the greatest albums of our time... and in my opinion it is the greatest album of my time. this album is a highly spiritual experience. when you're done listening to it you feel like you've just finished a long meditation... it is cleansing. listen to this album by yourself in dark room with a candle. close your eyes and don't think. just surrender yourself, because wants it starts it takes you over and that's all that you can do. ...

This album is AWESOME....This is one of the few cd's where I can listen to every track on the album...I love every song on the album....If you don't have this album, you must get it.....If you don't like ROCK, you will, after listening to this album....This is a must have.....TWO THUMBS UP...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best work yet
Personally my favorite Papa Roach album. The songs on this album are emotionally charged and make you move. ..To be Loved, Alive, I Devise my Own Demise, and Crash make you move while My Heart is a Fist, Roses on My Grave, and Time is Running Out aremore emotional. My favorite on the album is Roses on my Grave with it's mix of orchestra music and intensity. I can't listen to this CD without singing along with everything I have.

4-0 out of 5 stars Now Officially the Best Metal Band in America
Mastodon's last album was an epic tale of man against whale. Leviathan was the story of Moby Dick told through heavy metal. Now they've returned with Blood Mountain, another epic tale, although this time nothing quite so literary. Lyrically, this is the story of a man's quest to get to the top of the mountain of the title. Along the way he encounters all sorts of creatures, such as a cysquatch (a one-eyed sasquatch), the birchmen, and the hunters of the sky (dragons). In the end, our hero ascends close to the peak, but does he accomplish his goal? It's tough to say, as the final song on the album, "Pendulous Skin," is an instrumental.
4-0 out of 5 stars My perspective...here it goes.
I am just going to lay it out flat..Leviathan was a HUGE success for Mastodon, one of the best metal albums I've heard in a very very long time, so it's hard for me not to compare Blood Mountain to that, but in order to get a real understanding of this album, that is the wrong thing to do! Before listening to Blood Mountain, clear your mind and ideas on what you think your going to expect, because this baby is a whole other cake. Honestly I don't think it lives up to Leviathan, that's a tough one to beat. BUT this album is totally different, when listening to this one I think wow, what were they smoking when they wrote this because man it is OUT THERE! How in the heck do they come up with this stuff.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the New Classics!!!
I had heard a lot of hype about these guys; everything from "they are the saviors of metal" to "the best metal album of the decade", but their previous work never clicked with me. Not that they were necessarily bad, or anything, I just didn't really see what all of the fuss was about. Then comes "Blood Mountain". Basically, this is a band that you really have to let sink in and pay attention to what they are doing, and when it hits you, well.....it's awesome!!! One thing these guys do so well is manage to combine seemingly disparate styles and influences into a seamless whole that plays like old-school stoner rock (Nebula, Queens of the Stone Age)fused with elements of other diverse genres. During the album, you are subjected to many musical touchstones...album opener "The Wolf is Loose" sounds like vintage Clutch. The spacey and somnambulent "Sleeping Giant" is reminiscent of Pink Floyd meets Alice in Chains. "Cappillarian Crest" recalls Rush and King Crimson,along with progressive elements of some of the more modern prog-rock bands. They are also prone to experimentation, such as the bizarre-sounding, uber-distorted vocals on "Circle of the Cysquatch" and the endlessly creative guitar effects on the album. Combined with the grinding, heavy and at times quite technical and acrobatic guitar, this album is just a thick, dense slab of meat. Flyin' the devil horns, baby!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid effort, through and through
Nickelback follows up Silver Side Up with another catchy, angst-driven grunge disc. What's good is that the lyrical content is more varied with this effort. The one downer: "Someday" sounds virtually identical to "How you Remind Me" (tempo, guitars, drum parts, everything ... there's even a mash-up avaiable online where the two songs are played simultaneously and you really notice the similarities).
5-0 out of 5 stars Are you that dumb?
Whoever said this album isn't even worth a penny is the dumbest person ever.He (or she) asked a very stupid question.Where did the 90's go?There still back in the 90's!Every generation has it's own kind of music.Do you expect to hear Elvis on the popular radio stations anytime soon?No, because he is in the past and new music has come out.The 90's are called the 90's because they were played in the 90's!New music is and will forever be coming out and if your stuck in the 90's then don't turn on the damn radio because most of the stations will be playing music like this.So shut up about your favorite music because nobody cares what it is.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a load of dung....
When I first heard Nickelback about 7 or 8 years ago (The State), I thought they were decent, nothing great, but decent.I still think The State is an OK disc.But like most bands, once they sell out and find fame, the quality of the product goes down the tubes.Besides being musically bland, and never changing...the lyrics are just about as deep as a rain puddle after a drizzle."Figured you out" has to be the worst...any 8th grade dropout could write that, its just plain dumb, as well as vulgar.

Editorial Review

On their third album, Disturbed don't as much break out of expected patterns as show their potential for doing so. Fans eager for more of the band's patented fist-thumping gruel will take satisfaction in the album's opening (and anthemic) title track, plus "I'm Alive" and "Forgiven." The band shines brightest in the record's early moments, where "Deify," "Guarded," "Just Stop," and "Stricken" demonstrate that this unit's capable of discovering a song's subtleties Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sickness In Unity
Disturbed. Yet another triumph from the band who, since their debut album "The Sickness", have given rise to some of the freshest, inspiring, music to the hard rock scene since perhaps Korn.David Draiman's distinctive growl, combined with Dan Donegan's crushing riffs, and the thunderous beats of the percussion section provided by John Moyer on bass & Mike Wengren on drums, allows for complete mayhem, giving us the album we've been waiting for.While their debut album, "The Sickness", gave us a glance at the darkness which may or may not lie within each of us, the band's sophomore album, "Believe", provided a much more melodic effort, proving the overall range capable of the Chicago based band.While some fans criticized the band after the release of "Believe", arguing that they "lost" their heaviness from "The Sickness" in favor of a more radio friendly album, ( "Down With The Sickness" & "Stupify", two of the first singles from the debut album, received plenty of airplay by the way), they might have been surprised when Disturbed received the infamous "ban" from MTV, due to the suggestive nature from the video of their first single, "Prayer".An odd three years later, Disturbed have returned with "Ten Thousand Fists", a true piece of talent, testament to many critics who first dismissed them as "just another nu-metal band".This album provides the true Disturbed fan with a beautiful mixture of the darkness given from the debut album, and the melodic harmony brought forth with their sophomore effort.Another aspect differentiating this album from the others, are the guitar solos shredded forth by Dan Donegan, most notably on the tracks "Stricken", and "Overburdened".This is something rarely found in most hard rock/nu-metal bands today, as Donegan's solos are a breath of fresh air in a rock era dominated with one-finger chords.A defining characteristic of the band is its ability to capture human emotion and behavior, growled out by David Draiman's sharp, staccato, lyrical and singing ability, whether it is rage, sadness, hope, or violence."Stricken", one of the album's first singles, relates what everyone experiences at one time or another, betrayal and the distrust that lingers."Overburdened", another memorable track which many refer to as the band's first ballad, gives us the unique lyrical ability only Draiman can deliver, as there is hardly a scream or growl to be heard.
3-0 out of 5 stars 3.7 not up to Disturbed par
This CD is good, but it doesnt come close to the intensity of "Believe". The songs like "bound", "Prayer" and "Breathe" arent here. The production and mix isnt quite as good and there are more cheesy keyboard noises on this cd. That pisses me off because it kills any intensity a song may have had. the songs are decent enough, but the stupid cover song "Land..." is lame.. Desperate cry for airplay... I hope for a much better effort next out, but this cd does have its moments. Just not nearly as many as its predecessor..

4-0 out of 5 stars Disturbed still trying to stay popular.
I've read some reviews of this album. One says he can't play it on any cd players, ps2, e.t.c, one said they suck because they gotten worse with the music and lyrics, one says there the same as the last two albums, one says they suck for having politics in it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Godsmack IV: Back to Basics
I have enjoyed listening to the alternative hard rock group, Godsmack for quite awhile since listening to their album 'Awake. In this 4th album release self titled 'IV', Godsmack retained its right and proper path in maintaining its familar rock/metal sound. Why should a band experiment if what they have going at the moment works for them? Instead of changing, Godsmack have decided to confirm and strengthen their case. Sully remains lead singer and driving force behind this quartet of rockers. His vocals retain their strong features that carry each song richly.
2-0 out of 5 stars How can aggression sound boring?
Godsmack has pulled off a feat: making tortured, aggressive sound, innovative production, quality musicianship and clever lyrics seem so ... boring. Their anger, their sabre-rattling at imagined enemies, it doesn't feel like they believe it themselves. There is a lot of squandered potential here.

4-0 out of 5 stars Godsmack stays innovative with release of IV
Many times in the rock band realm, bands try and expand their direction and vision.They try to change the tempo, the sound, and anything to try and garner more of the wind that their sails have captured in the past.Many don't make it as fans that want more of the same formula often times sneeze at the change in direction.With IV, Godsmack still retains some signature sounds in sonic dire that is poetic and solid, while taking the edge off a bit here and there that was so prominent in past recordings.In all reality, it is not much change as we have seen this band progress to this point since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1998.
