This is a hard album to review, it seems Limp Bizkit has decided it's a good idea to mix up their music and change directions. This isn't neccessarily a bad thing, but instead of doing something really unique they seem to have been heavily inspired by Rage Against the Machine. They've adopted a darker, more serious outlook, and mixed in a lot of political commentary. Personally, I like this album. It may not be their best, but it's deffinity good to see them taking a new direction. "the Surrender", "the Priest",and "the Story" are my favorites from the album. Now, I would have been tempted to give a 4 for this album, but here's my biggest problem with it... there's only 7 tracks!!! And they're not very long either! The whole album clocks in at just under half an hour!
Anyway, if you liked the old "Limp Bizkit", and don't mind a more serious "Rage Against the Machine" twist, then you'll definity find something to like about this new album. It's just too bad they had to more-or-less copy another band instead of doing something of their own... oh well, hopefully Part 2 will be better.
