Product Description

A Chicago metal quartet, Disturbed has been driving fans in the Midwest wild with their frenetic, theatrical live show. On their debut album, The Sickness, the band combines an over-the-top metal groove appealing to the underground with radio-friendly melodic hooks that grab hold of mainstream rock fans. Disturbed is that rare hard group with street credibility and musical chops. Now that is truly disturbing. Certified Multi-Platinum (2 times) by the RIAA. (2/01)

The first time I heard the radio playing the single "Down With the Sickness", I was not overly impressed. It had energy, but was not very memorable. Of course, that was before I heard the whole bridge where David Draiman, well, discloses his less-than-perfect relationship with his mother. If anyone has heard (and I'm sure most rap fans have) Eminem's "Cleaning Out my Closet", Draiman makes Eminem look like a momma's boy in comparison. I mean, the guy calls his own mother a b*tch and wh*re, and tells her that she better get ready to die. Obviously, his mother isn't exactly a sensitive woman either, and Draiman makes it quite obvious that his rebellion against the family being Orthodox Jews doesn't sit too well with her. That phrase is by far the most outraged one I had heard in any song as of now (not the heaviest; Disturbed is no Pantera or Slayer, but I've never felt like the lead singers of those bands needed to see a few hundred therapists, either). Draiman definitely draws you into his gruesome world with this song, and perhaps further down than most of us would like to go. So much for unmemorable.
I wanted to buy this debut at the time, but I wound up getting "Believe" first. My views of the band changed. They were still angry, to say the very least, but as a band, their musicianship and composition skills drastically improved. "Believe" is unlike, and much more emotionally engaged than, any nu-metal album to come before it (contrary to the belief of some reviewers that it is generic, which is the one untrue thing about "Believe"). There may not have been an incredible display of talent, but the band knows how to make music. When I bought this CD, I expected it to be worse, because hey, it's a debut.

Voices 9/10-Wow this is wicked wicked fast! the only thing that kills it is the chorus, its really good but its waaay too slow for this song.
The Game 8/10 the end is really awsom! but...the verses are a little too mellow for my taste, the chorus is incredible, but the song doesnt have everything it should.
Stupify 9/10 awsomawsomawsom song. very chaotic chorus, interesting stuff inbetween choruses and verses. but! the verses are a little too slow, but i listen to speedmetal, so...
Down with the sickness 10/10 wat can u expect? animal noises..LOVE THEM OR DIE! its crazy, and AAAHHH!! and if u havnt herd this song kill yourself right now

Fear 10/10 AWSOM! its eerie its fast, its got a very choppy pace, awsomm chorus, its kindof rapmetal, but its just awsom, u hafta hear it
Numb 8/10 slower...more melodic, but if u actually listen to the words, youll like it a lot more
Want 9/10 good beginning, awsom animals noises, good chorus, everything is good, but thats what keeps it from 10/10
Conflict 10/10 Loud! yelling about (ENEMEY! you are my ENEMEY!)
its really cool, and a wikked awsom chorus, alotta people dont like it tho...so....
Shout 2000 7/10 Its a really good remake, but the song just isnt that good, and its kinda boring to listen to..sorry tears for fears...
Droppin plates 10/10 perhaps the best song on the album, rapmetal, kinda like fear, only choppier, good chorus, loudest ending on the album...(Plates on your a**! plates on your a**!! well here i come im dropping plates and dropping plates on your a** b***h plates your a**!!)

Great Cd with all great songs but some particular standouts that immediately leap out your headphones and try to beat you to death!
Voices 8/10- Man that's catchy. Fast and frantic.
Game 8/10- I don't know if this is based upon a serial killer or something but the lyrics are kinda strange...nevertheless a very catchy song, punctuated by mild screaming.
Stupify 9.5/10- One of the standout songs on this album. My favourite song. Not particularly clever and kinda hard to understand during the chorus but .... ....that's a spicy meatball!
The Sickness 10/10- Oh (yeah), hand these guys the prize. If you don't mind the weird animal noises he makes, this song is the one for heavy music lovers! VERY catchy chorus!
Violence Fetish 8/10 - good but a bit repetitive.
Fear 8.5/10 - Can't actually understand the first 50sec ("He saw me naked"?!) or some of the chorus for that matter but ..., this song is soooo catchy. You will definitely be rocking along!
Numb 7.5/10- The chorus is great but the verses are kinda boring and slow (hence the low score).
Want 8/10- S'okay. You'll enjoy it more as you listen.
Conflict 6/10- Yeah i get it, you are my enemy too...
Shout 2000 9/10- Really good remake of the original Shout, much less like death metal.
Dropin Plates 9/10- I really really love this song, it's a bit 'wannabe' but it's really catchy. Almost rap.
Meaning of Life 7/10- Not my style i'm afraid. too repetitve for my liking.

This is a Great CD, Even though Belive is better (their other album)this one is still great. David's voice takes great singing range to the next level.
Voices 9/10- Hard song and fast lyrics.
Game 8/10- This is got some of the greatest guitar thats hard, but can be used on the dance floor because of the somewhat techno beat. The only thing keepin this song from a 9 or 10 is that the lyrics are just plain weird.
Stupify 9/10- This is a great song with screaming, melodic singing, great beat, and some sorta kool solo that david does in the middle that just doesnt fit into a catagory.
The Sickness 10/10- This is my fav. song on the album. Its just all around good. The part about child abuse gets the point across.
Violence Fetish 9/10- Great song with a creepy feeling and great beat.
Fear 8/10 - It takes a couple times to grow on you.
Numb 8/10- Again another song to grow on you.
Want 9/10- Great song.
Conflict 8/10- Onother 1 word title but its still good.
Shout 2000 10/10- A new "Disturbed" version of the 80's hit.
Dropin Plates 8/10-Good song.
Meaning of Life 10/10- This is the 2nd best song on the CD.Its a great song none the less.
As you can see this is a great CD.
