Editorial Reviews

Disturbed began building 'Asylum' as soon as they got off the road in the summer of 2009. Officially entering Groovemaster Studios in February 2010, the band set about self-producing the album, as they did with 'Indestructible.' Draiman declares, 'This record shows a certain degree of maturation and enhanced complexity. 'Asylum' is still identifiably Disturbed, but the evolution is clear. It preserves the elements of what we do but at a more advanced level.'
Each CD includes a card to access exclusive download or stream of the documentary 'Decade of Disturbed' that recalls ten years of history in the most candid of ways. It takes you through years of countless tours, dedication and sacrifice stripping away all the gloss and letting the real story be told... the documentary is about the fans and their brotherhood that has been formed with the band.

Also Available as a Limited Edition CD+DVD:
-Expanded packaging in digi-pak with 16-page booklet
-CD: Standard album track listing plus 2 bonus live tracks 'Down With The Sickness' & 'Stricken'
-DVD: 'Decade Of Disturbed' (documentary) and Disturbed 'Dissected' (band showing/teaching fans to play tracks):

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Effort, Though Not Revolutionary August 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Asylum is every bit as much a Disturbed album as 2008's Indestructible. Disturbed pound through every bit of ASYLUM providing an enjoyable, though not revolutionary effort. The album is cliché metal with strong, anthemic choruses that often namecheck the title of the song for the fan's cohesion sake. The beginning of the album lays better than the end, but that is typical of so many efforts today. I believe part of that is that Disturbed's best, most cutting edge material appears at the forefront. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing here that is bad by any means, but after a while, the album grows a bit "same-y" if you catch my drift.

The album opens up strongly with "Remnants," an instrumental cut that builds in intensity and instrumentation. The grand guitar work here foreshadows what is to be a sick display of guitar solos and unabashedly strong guitar riffs. Title cut "Asylum" follows, proving to be the `cream of the crop' cut of the album opening with a fine bass-driven groove. Often times title cuts disappoint, but "Asylum," much like "Indestructible" from Indestructible proves to be a key listen. The refrain for "Asylum" is well crafted as far as songwriting appeal and the guitar work is jagged and desirable, archetypical of metal. While "Asylum" is by no means the second coming, it is a solid cut and one of the best from this album of the same name.

"The Infection" is equally as alluring as "Asylum" if no moreso. Here frontman David Draiman's vocals are slightly more present and balanced within the production, adding additional clarity to his vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album since The Sickness September 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is definitly the best album since The Sickness. All the other albums were good, but this is by far 2nd in my Disturbed favorites, of course nothing will knock The Sickness out of the number one spot in my mind. Asylum is probably the hardest rocking album they have put out. Insane rifs, drums, and good mixing of vocals by David. Overall 5/5 in my opinion

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I am giving it five stars. September 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
But please, read on as to why I am assigning the highest possible rating to an album that, thus far anyway, has been hotly disputed in terms of quality. I am going to explain my reasons the best I can, lest I be labeled a "fanboy" or something equally ridiculous and baseless. (This will be a rather long review and yes, I will be explaining each song, so if that isn't what you want to read by all means move on.) Perhaps I am going deaf in my old age (after all, I am pushing 30) but after having listened to this album all the way through several times in the last two days, I find nothing at all "stale, "generic," or "boring" about it.

In the post-Sickness era, progression has become what Disturbed has been all about. This applies to both their musicianship and their lyrics. The Believe record showed the band slightly expanding on the sound they established two years prior, with lyrics tackling the thorny issues of faith and religion. And how can we forget David Draiman's beautiful melodic singing on cuts such as "Remember," "Awaken," "Mistress," and the closing ballad "Darkness?" Ten Thousand Fists marked the first appearance of solos played by guitarist Dan Donegan, and the album's lyrics took on a very political/social nature. (TTF, as it turns out, has become my least favorite Disturbed album. A handful of great tracks, but too many mediocre ones that felt tacked on.) Indestructible was an even bigger step forward musically with Danny doing even more shredding and the rest of the band stepping up their game as well. Lyrically speaking, the songs were "darker." One need only look to tracks such as "Haunted" and "The Night" for evidence of this, not to mention the single "Inside The Fire" which dealt with the suicide of an ex-girlfriend of David.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Epic September 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is probably Disturbed's best work (I still haven't decided between this and "Indestructible.") Every song on this album is classic Disturbed, just more matured. A lot of the songs are actually very different for them, yet they keep their same sound. Disturbed is one of the only bands that I know of that have only bettered their sound, not completely changed it. That is a sign of true talent. This album experiments, it pulls their signature sound, and it's incredible! This band has always done amazing work. They've been my all-time favorite band since "The Sickness." On this cd, John Moyer, the bassist, has his moments to shine, which is something we haven't heard much of in the past. Dan's guitar layerings are fantastic, along with his solos. Mike's drumming is phenomenal. He's really pushing the envelope with his chops. David's vocals and lyrics are emotional, angry, and best of all, outstanding. I don't think he's ever sounded better. On every song you feel his emotions whether they're anger, hurt, or "animalistic." I really like how almost every hard rock album (Stone Sour, A7X, Disturbed) this year, are all progressions of the bands, and show real emotion, stay true to the band, and they all take you on a journey, Asylum especially.
1./2. - Remnants/Asylum 5/5 - This is a great start to the album. A very different approach, with an instrumental beginning, building into the "Breaking down of the doors, of the 'Asylum.'" The main riff kicks off, leading in to an old-school Disturbed song. The lyrics are perfectly written for this song.
3. The Infection 5/5 - A very different song. It's got different guitar and vocal work. Very melodic, and very fanstastic. It also has one of my favoirite guitar solos on the album.
4. Warrior 4/5 - A straight forward and solid "fight song.

Best Disturbed Album Out There?
Best Disturbed album? Hmm, tough call. I'll start by saying that Ten Thousand Fists is my least favorite. Not that it's a bad album, because I really don't think Disturbed have released a bad album to date. But TTF, in my opinion, contains too many filler tracks. There are great ones on there of... Read More

They changed the picture here on amazon. It now looks like the one that comes with everything, so I would guess yes.

Buy the regular edition
If you have Indestructible (Bonus Tracks) ver then you already have Down With The Sickness [Live At The Riviera] and Stricken [Live At The Riviera] so why pay for them again?
