Limited Edition Version featuring Two Bonus Tracks 'gouge Away' and 'never Said It' Along with Two Videos 'between Angels and Insects' and 'last Resort'.
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

Although it may seem like it cuts off a little short, with less than 40 minutes of playing time, this record is a nu metal masterpiece (and trust me, that word isn't an oxymoron, just listen to System of a Down's first two releses). Now I'll admit... on some songs there are those generic, cliche Papa Roach lyrics, but you'll also notice how well written some of the other songs are. I'd also like to add that all of the band members (yes, including singer Jacoby Shaddix/Coby Dick whatever floats your boat) have talent. Listen to guitarist Jerry Horton's explosive overdriven guitar riffage, then check out "Decompression Period", a song that he recorded with a resonator. Then you have Tobin, the bass player, who uses a 5-string bass, and on many song's a teqnique where he plays along to Jerry's guitar riff on the 5th string, resulting in an extremley low, but very melodic accompaniment to the guitar work (check out songs like "Life is a Bullet" and if you have their debut CD "Blood Brothers"), all using the fingers, no picks. Then of course there's Dave on the drums, who really knows how to just go off with crazy fills and stuff. All their talents combine together for a raw, sharp, and EXPLOSIVE sound, and even if you just want to rock out to something while your cleaning your room or whatever then I think you'll really enjoy this C.D.
The overall sound of this record is amazingly RAW, which is due to using very little or no over dubbing in the studio, making for a C.D.Read more ›
Therefore Papa Roach should endeavour, in their next album, to bring back SOME of their rap/rock style.Read more ›
1.M-80 (Explosive Energy Movement)-2/5-Punkier than the rest of the tracks, this song would be fairly good if it wasn't for the stupid lyrics.
2.Life Is A Bullet-4/4-A slower song, about someone "living life in the fsat lane". It's good, but gets boring after hearing it too many times.
3.Time And Time Again-5/5-Rappier than all the other tracks, only it's not rappy enough to be called...rap. Whatever, it's just good.
4.Walking Thru Barbed Wire-3/5-This is a pretty boring song. That's all I can say. Sounds no different from the rest.
5.Decompression Period-2/5-I always skip this one. It's melodic, and I usaully like melodic stuff, but this dosen't stand out at all.
6.Born With Nothing, Die With Everything-5/5-My favorite song on the album. Good guitars, bass, drums, singing, lyrics, everything.
7.She Loves Me Not-4/5-...Yeah, you've heard it...
8. Singular Indestructible Droid-5/5-Another cool track with good lyrics. I like the chorus.
9.Black Clouds-3/5-Slow song, like "Decompression Period", only it reminds me of Crazy Town's "Black Cloud" too much, and that song annoys me.
10.Code Of Energy-?-5-I haven't listened to this that much yet.
11.Lovehatetragedy-0/5-I am sorry, but nothing stands out to me in this song at all.
12.Gouge Away-0/5-The singing in this is horrible, so horrible I've only been able to stand 30 seconds of the song. This should've been a normal track, that way they could've gotten a good song for the bonus.
13.Never Said It-0/5-...See previous.Read more ›

This album speaks volumes about one person's struggle with hatred/depression/hopelessness. That sounds very bad, but they do it with a very "f... it lets rock" attitude. Read morePublished on May 7 2004
