Top critical review
on October 8, 2003
Hey rokkers, how are ya?? Staind is one of my all time favorite bands cuz their music is so deep, their ballads are pretty, and when I'm around their lead singer, I don't need a mirror cuz I can see my reflection on his cute lil' head!! Anyway, I did a search to find their awesome new hit "So Far Away". Well the first thing that came up was by this weird band called Dire Straits, it looks like they have a song called "So Far Away" also. I gave it a listen to see if it was as good as the much loved Staind tune!! Well that was a mistake cuz the guy has weird gruffy vocals and the guitar was wimpy and had some dumb solos too. Be sure to stay FAR AWAY from Dire Straits "So Far Away" and stick with the staind version!! I guess they thought they could cash in on Staind's sucess by having a song with the same title as there hit, but people can smell that this album is a loser and I'm sure it won't even go gold!! The rest of the album is dumb too, "Money For Nothing" would be a good title for a rap tune, cuz they get the money and babes, I'm sure the guys in this band don't get the bling-bling that modern rappers aquire!! Plus the singer at the beginning has a horrible voice, he sounds like a bad copy of Sting!! People, just stick with the awesome hardcore talent like Staind, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, KoRn, Trapt, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, Puddle Of Mudd, Drowning Pool and that silly cowboy Toby Keith and you'll be lots happier!! Trust me....oh, and peace!!
