Product Description


For their second major-label release, Northern California's Papa Roach follow the same recipe of other rap-metal crossovers: aggressive, thick-chugging riffs, angst-driven lyrics, and touches of good ol' classic rock. Tracks "Time and Time Again," "Born with Nothing, Die with Everything," and "She Loves Me Not" have big, fat, clever choruses, which would fit with ease on harder mainstream radio. Elsewhere, they are far more engaging: "M-80 (Explosive Energy Movement)" bashes away with punk stylings, and the sweeping "lovehatetragedy" includes interesting chord and tempo changes. Jacoby Shaddix (the vocalist formerly known as Coby Dick) gives an impressive performance, and while he might not have the power of most of his contemporaries, he makes up for it with his more melodic approach, even within his raps. The only thing that's lacking is a distinction factor that sets them apart from everyone else, but at least they didn't steal any Iron Maiden riffs this time. --Gail Flug

Ok, I bought the Infest album, I'll admit it. I thought the guitar work was intriguing, but the more I listened to it the more I couldn't ignore the complete ridiculousness of Coby Dick's lyrics (he even says his name in his songs people! Don't be that guy) How many times can you rhyme the word "bleed," with the word "bleed!?"
So anyway, one of my less picky friends picked up this album and put it in while we were working on his car. After a few mintues without any biased influence I stopped and said "what is this crap?" Even with the catchier Pepsi commercial song, the crappiness of this band just permiated the atmosphere. So I hit my friend with a hammer and put in TRUSTcompany.
I'm not the most discerning music critic, but sometimes I come on to Amazon to look for new music and when I read all the shining reviews of bands I've never heard before I think, "well if all these people liked it, it must be ok" but then I come to Papa Roach, and ALL these people like them! So disheartening, that a bunch of fat white suburban kids can win so many fans for writing bad songs about how they're angry and depressed.

With Infest, everybody (well, most of the people who hadn't heard their earlier stuff anyway)thought that they were just another rap-metal band that were just trying to imitate the sounds of like minded groups, such as Limp Bizkit, The Deftones, and Rage Aginst the Machine. It wasn't a bad album by any means, in fact a lot of the songs had quite an original sound to them. But still, many people labeled them as "rap-metal" and thought that they would throw in the towel a few months after the release of Infest. All I want to say to those people is "up yours". Lovehatetragedy is a surpring and solid album. They pretty much abandon their past "rapcore" style, for more melodic straightforward punk/hard rock tunes. They definately show this on songs such as "M-80" (my personal favorite), "Walking Thru Barbed Wire", "S.I.D.(singular indestructible droid)" and "Code of Energy". Jacoby Shaddix (who leagally changed his name from Coby Dick)shows off how he can sing a variety of melodies and still change the tempo at will. After listening to this album, you can tell that, even though he was great at kickin ryhmes, he was meant for this type of stuff. Even rap-metal fans should give this album a try, even though some of them might be turned away by the lack of rapped lyrics (except in "She Loves Me Not"). Definately pick this album up if you like any of their older stuff (Old Friends From Young Years and 5 Tracks Deep come to mind), even though it isn't quite as raw. My favorite are "M-80", "Life is a Bullet", "Born With Nothing, Die With Everything" and "Black Clouds". O Yeah, almost forgot, you also pick up their new album Dancing In the Ashes when it comes out, it might please some Infest fans.

Ok, at the time of its release I absolutely loved Infest. I had been a fan of Papa Roach from their earlier releases ("Old Friends From Young Years" and "5 Tracks Deep") and was hooked by their aggressive raprock efforts. That said, years later, if that same album had been released today I'm confident I would be completely turned off by it. The "nu-metal" sound has grown so rediculously tedious and over played that another album in that vein would have been career suicide.
Luckily for us, as well as Papa Roach, the band took a different, and much more mature, approach in this new album. As a general rule Jacoby has totally dropped the rap/sing style of his past efforts and has instead opted for a more anthemic singing style that definitely suprises in it's effectiveness. Granted there are a few tracks on here where this isn't always the case, particularly in the first single "She Loves Me Not" which was written during the "Infest" years and stands out as obviously the most immature and, in my opinion, worst track here. But for the most part the vocals are very well executed and take this band to a new level that they never would have attained without this change.
The rest of the band is along for the ride too, and I'm glad to say they've changed as well. While there is still the mosh pit intensity that was found on "Infest", the band truly shines here in their voyage into the softer and darker realm. "Decompression Period", "Black Clouds" and "Singular Indesctrutable Droid" are perfect examples of Papa Roache's new sound and are by far some of my favorites on this release. They are much more dynamic and moving than just about everything the band had done before.

Prior to the release of Lovehatetragedy (all one word), lead vocalist Jacoby Shaddix was quoted saying "we're being a little more creative and leaving the listener a little more room for their interpretation of what the song is about". If Papa Roach are good at one thing, it's keeping their promises: Lovehatetragedy sounds like Papa Roach all right, but with a few distinct differences to their major label debut, Infest (2000).
The first thing you'll probably notice is that Jacoby (a.k.a. Coby Dick) does very little rapping this time around. The only rhyme on the entire record is the bridge to the single She Loves Me Not. Otherwise, Lovehatetragedy is pure, adrenaline driven hard rock. The signature P. Roach riffs are all still here (most notable on Born With Nothing, Die With Everything), and so are the energetic shouts and rantings of the roach boy frontman: "I'm ready to die for rock n' roll!" he shouts in the first track, M-80. But listen to the next few songs and you'll notice this is a record far different from Infest, or any of thier indie albums. The group is now ready to put their rapping days behind them and focus more on traditional hard rock songwriting, and addictingly catchy choruses. That's not to say that Papa Roach aren't experimenting with new sounds, however. The song Singular Indestructible Droid begins with tribal drum beats and primal-sounding chanting, leading into an intro bassline, further giving way to an undeniably hooky guitar riff and passionate vocals by none other than Jacoby himself. It's that kind of creative songwriting that makes LHT as compelling as Infest, but in a much more profound way. Rap-metal fans, expecting a flat out continuation of Infest will likely be disappointed(as I was at first). But, listen with an open mind and you'll find it difficult just to press stop.
