Home was rebellious, inventive, distinct, energetic, even sophisticated in its musical sensibilities, and remains one of my favorite albums ever. and i dont even like metal. if it weren't for lajon's voice however, this album Animosity is basically indistinguishable from all the other whiny straight-edge recycled sounds of "nu metal" trash that radio dj's and angry high schoolers just cant get enough of. on Home, all the brutal guitars and thunderous rhythms and awesome vocals seemed sincere, that there was a reason they were playing this stuff. this is lost on the nu metal scene, nu metal is loud because they feel it has to be, and most of the time their lyrics are so vague and childish that all the heavy stuff that the bands play just becomes a huge joke. i dont know why, but thats the main problem with nu metal, and it is exactly what this album suffers from. they can bash the crap out of their drums and tune their guitars as low as they want but it sounds so trite and obligatory, theres no rebellion behind the noise, just trend-following.
