Do any of you remember Believe? It had melodic singing, excellent guitar work, but something was missing... the "awesomeness" from the first cd. Disturbed tries to emulate the recordings through their newest, 10,000 fists.
Let me just say, it may have a more mainstream sound, but it is clearly a highlight in today's society with no guitar solos, Disturbed shows that their lead sure can play some sick licks if he feels up to it, which shows that they aren't bad.
Sure, this album has some political material in it, but there is never so much that is an tired left-fisted throwdown like what has happened to many bands against the administrations.
