Product Description


The Beatles had the White Album, Metallica, a black album, and now Staind has its gray album. While lumped in with the often indistinguishable nu metal crowd, Staind stands out, thanks in part to memorable ballads, such as the pained and beautiful "It's Been A While" and "Epiphany" from the quartet's 2001 breakthrough Break the Cycle. Their latest represents a natural progression; realizing the commercial potential of the poignant but heavy rock ballad, they've penned a slew of them. The light and cheery "How About You" is radio-ready, while the layered, string-backed "So Far Away," and honest and grateful musing on success, is another get-out-the lighters showcase for singer Aaron Lewis. Lewis's beautiful ode for his baby, "Zoe Jane," a tribute to late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley ("Layne," which intentionally and effectively cops Alice's signature sound), and the grandiose thank-you note "Intro" are more strong, overtly introspective entries in Lewis' sometimes mushy, sometimes touching CD diary. --Katherine Turman

Product Description

STAIND 14 Shades Of Grey (2003 US 14-track CD album the follow-up to their 2001 hit album Break The Cycle. This is a far more mainstream release from the group and distances itself from the nu-metal persona of previous releases. Stand out tracks include Price To Play Layne - tribute to the late Alice In Chains vocalist Layne Staley and Zoe Jane written about Aaron Lewis firstborn daughter. The CD is housed in a picture sleeve still sealed from new including the logo-stickeron the front cover)

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally different and awsome Dec 23 2003
By tejas
Format:Audio CD
How many bands have we seen that go on repeating the same stuff again and again.if a bands has a successful album, you are sure to find the same formula again in their next album.but STAIND are not that kind of a band.
The album is nothing like "Break the cycle".for a start it is much softer.but this is not a bad point.the album is really good.it showcases frontman aaron lewis's vocal ability and also lyrical ability.the guitar parts are very good(this is a distict ability exclusive to staind.even in a slow song like "zoe jane",they have a heavy riff for the chorus).the drumming is also good except in the track "reality"(it feels like the drummer forgot what he has to play).
Truly speeking this album is great.but if your expecting it to be as good as "break the cycle" then i can't make any promises."price to play","so far away","zoe jane","fill me up" and "falling down" are the best tracks in the album.
Even if the album is not as heavy as its predecessor,it's difference from it is remarkable and the courage of the band to go out of the way and make a totally different album is worth appreciating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staind does it AGAIN! Sept. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
Staind has yet to let me down. This time they took a much softer approach to their music. Many people say it is too soft, but i think it is almost as good as Break the Cycle, but not quite. Here are some rankings for each of their songs.
1. Price to Play(5/5)- I heard this song on the radio and knew I had to pick up this CD
2. How About You(4/5)- This is a slower song that has a good beat and a good rythym so you can really get into this song
3.So Far Away(4/5)- This song was released and I was happy. It is a very good song.
4.Yesterday(4.5/5)- First song with cussing, but that makes it good.
5. Fray(4/5)- A all around good song
6. Sweet Zoe Jane(5/5)- First true slow song on the CD. It is a very good song that can be put on repeat and never get old
7. Fill Me UP(4/5)- a good song with good opening music.
8. Layne(3/5)- One of my least favorites on the CD
This is the best part of the CD. #9-14
10. Reality(5/5)- This song is down right kick-@$$. The chourus is hard to imagine the lung capacity of Aaron Lewis. Try to sing it like he does.
11. Tonight(5/5)- Great song
12. Could It Be(5/5)- Great song about being youself. Sounds sappy but once you hear it you willchange your mind.
13. Blow Away(4/5)-Good song
14. Intro(5/5)- In this song Aaron thanks his family for putting up with him. He also critisizes people for underestimated his band. Does this title hint the next CD?

1.0 out of 5 stars How not to make youre third album! Feb. 20 2004
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
Well it seems as though staind have opted for the same verse-chorus-verse-bridge-chorus formula which made the very rich men with break the cycle. its a safe bet and provides them with yet more money, i have nothing against staind, in fact a couple of songs of dysfunction and "btc" were very good, but you do tend to get bored of the same set of songs being played in de-tuned guitars. As soon as i heard pay to play i knew they wouldnt be repeating the success of "btc". Most of this album is dull, the title is fitting and aarons droning becomes frankly annoying after a while. songs like intro and fill me up raise the eyebrow slightly and falling down sounds like it should be on btc. the album doesnt quite grab you and its quite disturbing that a man of this age is so angry and depressed. Maybe theyll get another album out if theyre not dropped. once again im not out to get staind this review is true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Staind Work Ever!!!!!!! Aug. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow! This cd is definitely the best Staind album out yet. I waited a while to get this album because I wasn't sure I would like it very much. A lot of people complained that it was too soft and boring. I took my chances anyway because I liked their other two albums(Dysfunction, Break the Cycle) a lot. Every song on this cd is simply remarkable and I just can't get enough of it. The band really does a good job of showing how they feel and that is a good way to get to know a band. Some of my favorite songs on this cd are "Price To Play", "So Far Away", and "Fray". I can't believe that they could put such a good album together. It will always be one of my favorite rock cd's I'll ever own. Go buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Broke the Cycle June 24 2003
By jason
Format:Audio CD
Staind has always been a band that has evolved on every CD. and thats what this CD is, more mature music. 14 shades of grey is one of the best albums by staind. it's better then Dysfunction but not quite as good as Break The Cycle."Price To Play" shows that staind can still rock as hard as any band.but songs such as "Zoe Jane" shows the lyrically maturity of Aaron and other songs such as "Layne" shows maturity as a whole. while paying tribute to the late vocalist of Alice In Chains. So my advice to you is buy this album if you liked Break The Cycle and you're hardcore staind fan. but for those who are Dysfunction and Tormented metalheads, then i suggest another album "year of the spider"by Cold.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Staind Album Ever! May 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is the worst. This is way unexpected from Staind, Every album has always been better than the previous one(i.e., Break the Cycle was better than Dysfunction, and so on.) This album does not have the same kick as the other three have. There are just two many slow songs(love songs), I have always liked Staind for their music; exciting and dimensional. But this album is not worth the money you might want to spend.
I will only give this album 2 stars because it still does have about 2-3 songs that are good. The one song that i do think has the most kick is of course the new single, Price to Play. Almost everyone has heard this song and i wish the other songs would be just like this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars 14 Shades of Crap
Wow. I don't if its just me or not, but I can't stand what staind has become. I guess i'll just continue to listen to Dysfunction, when they were actually a heavy metal band.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not their best work
14 Shades of Grey is a real letdown. Break the Cycle was true art. This is just a sloppy mess. The songs aren't nearly as original or satisfying as Staind's previous album. Read more
