4.0 out of 5 stars Not Breaking Any Barriers, But Worth A Listen August 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It would have been very easy to trash this to album, to completely rip it apart. Afterall, Dope have always been somewhat of a secondary act in the nu-metal genre, and the fact that the genre is struggling to keep alive makes it all the easier to criticize a band like Dope who stubborningly stick to their guns. But this is actually a good album. "American Apathy" is quite possibly the definitive Dope album, combining elements from all three or their previous releases into one pleasing album.

Like all of Dope's releases, there is a definitive cheese-factor here. The overuse of the "F" word is just one prime example. But, once you can get past that, there is an album here that is instantly enjoyable. A bit brainless, yes, but it works. Opening with a passage from the bible of Dubya, "I'm Back" aims to prove that Dope are far from dead. Following it up, better songs such as "No Way Out" "Survive" and "Always" have the band stretching out a bit from the norm. Instead of sounding like a low-grade version of their contemporaries in Powerman 5000 and Static-X, Dope manage to find a groove, and fall somewhere in between Fear Factory and Disturbed. The album is drenched in political lyrics and anti-Bush sentiments, so songs such as "I Wish I Were President" and "Revolution" speak for themselves. As strong as the first half of the album is, though, it tends to come undone with songs like "Let's F---" and "F--- The World." A cover of Depeche Mode's "People Are People" sounds a bit weird and out of place here, but does a lot to show that Dope aren't just a one-trick pony.

If the album itself isn't enough, plenty of bonus material -- which dwells heavily on old material -- is included to equal more bang for your buck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not extraordinary May 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd mainly because i heard dope was great from a friend, and for the most part i agree with him on that. The only downside is this was supposed to be a metal album, yet a few songs sound kind of whiny/punk to me, like Dream. Overall though the album was great, and if you got the bonus edition with the extra trakcs, the remixes are just as good.

3.0 out of 5 stars True testament to what Dope sounds like live August 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"I'm Back" will most likely be Dope's anthem for their current tour, although they never stop touring. It's loaded with in-your-face drums and piercing licks. "Survive" sticks with the anthem feel, but this time it's more personal as Edsel speaks his mind about those that have tried to hold him back. On "Always, Edsel takes a more melodic approach to his vocal delivery...and it works. The chorus comes off as memorable as any rock radio track. The riff is simple, but still effective enough to stick in your head. Nothing goes hand and hand with hard rock than sex. So it only makes sense that Dope included the blood pumping song "Sex Machine".

If that isn't enough sexual energy for you, then "Let's F***" will surly get your juices flowing. Edsel doesn't mince words here. He gets straight to the point. Virus' chunky riffs go head-to-head with Edsel's melodic vocals on "Dream", as Edsel shows that there is more to him than his on stage persona. Dope injects a lot more muscle into the Depeche Mode classic "People Are People". The gang keeps things melodic so you don't miss the importance of the songs lyrics. Always the fan friendly artist, Dope includes three bonus tracks; "Bitch (alternate version)", "F*** tha Police 2005", and "Burn". There are other versions of this release that include a bonus disc of six more songs and a DVD.

The Bad

This may be Dope's best outing yet, but unfortunately the genre is hanging onto a thread. A couple of the tracks seem a bit amateurish for a band that's been around for a while ("F*** the World" & "I Wish I Was President").

The Verdict

I bought the first Dope album after catching them at a live show back in 1999. I was highly disappointed. Dope has certainly improved in sound quality and song construction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their best to date! July 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Not the most original band out there but they have a sound and keep working at it to improve on it. There is only 2 songs that could be considered melodic and/or ballad like on the the cd. There are 3 cover songs, 2 remakes off their first cd and 5 remakes off of their last cd. For a total of 23 tracks....wow.

I don't know why they did it like that but it is cool with me. As for the dvd...there are videos and clips of them playing in Japan. The production is fair and the videos are sometimes funny.

Overall this album is on the heavy uncensored side....far more than anything they have produced before....closer to 'Felons' but heavier...........and I got all of this for $9.99 at B.B.

What a bargin!

4.0 out of 5 stars Get it at Best Buy July 31, 2005

This version is basically the bestbuy version, but on 2 discs instead of one, and no DVD. At Best Buy it's cheaper and comes with a DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad-ass August 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
American Apathy is hands down the best Dope CD. It's a combination of "Felons & Revolutionaries", and "Group Therapy", but also adding some riff patterns, and EQ's never heard from them before. This album is definately heavy, and 23+DVD for 12 bucks...couldn't have asked for a better deal. Awesome.

This cd wasn't bad. Not near as good as Life, but worth the $13 I paid. If your a Dope fan, get it; you won't be sorry. If your new to Dope, start with Life.
