Wa-A-A-A's out of 10 for the Normal Version
10 Wa-A-A-A's out of 10 for the Limited
There are two versions of this CD. The normal version and a limited
edition version. The limited edition verison kicks ass because you could
actually beat somebody's ass with it. It's comes in a red leather bound
book with a their metal design on the cover. It's like real metal so
you could whack somebody in the head with it. It costed some money to
put those out. The regular version just has the logo but it's not metal
and is just in a jewel case.

The regular verison folds out to show headshots
of each band member and lyrics so you can understand what the fuck is
being said. The limited edition version is printed on some sort of fancy
paper and each band member gets their own page. It's pretty slick.

Like others have written, this CD is more melodic and the lyrics are
deeper. Singer Dave Drainman recently said he wants Disturbed to be
the metal U2. Well I don't fucking like U2 and the last thing I need
is a metal U2. What set Disturbed apart with their last CD is kind of
gone from this one so it takes a few listens, or a few beers, to get
used to it. "Liberate," "Intoxication," and "Rise"
sound like they could be from "The Sickness" and those were
the tracks that stood out early on because I like angry shit. "Prayer"
is the first single and it's also what you would expect from Disturbed.
"Devour" would make a good single so if these guys know what's
up they should fucking listen to me. On the other hand, "Darkness"
is a horrible piano ballad that ranks right up there with the piano
ballad Eddie Van Halen sang on Van Halen 3. Make sure you stop listening
to the CD after track 11 of you'll be forced to hear it. There are also
no animal noises on this CD so that pisses me off. Animal noises are
Comments: I don't think this
CD has the impact that "The Sickness" does and I like that
CD better. Though this did debut at #1 on the Billboard charts, which
is a nice Fuck You to MTV since those pricks banned the video for the
song "Prayer." Just goes to show you that you can still sell
records without kissing MTV's ass and for that I have to give these
guys props. The CD comes with a CD Rom of the "Prayer" video
while the limited edition CD comes with a DVD of the video as well as
the making of this record.
