Amazon.com

The second album from brothers Simon and Edsel "Dope" and their ever- changing lineup is a breath of fresh air. While the New York-based sextet fits loosely into the nu metal category, Dope take more from basic rock & roll structures and less from faux-aggro rap-rock than many of their brethren. In fact, the catchy first single, "Now or Never," boasts an almost classic-rock vibe, and the entire record is more rock and less "shock" than their decent debut, Felons and Revolutionaries. Though at times Edsel has a Marilyn Manson inflection to his voice, and on songs like "Stop" there are hints of White Zombie-influenced electronic riff-rock, the melody lines and vocals make most of Life's songs timeless and accessible, while still maintaining a dark, angry and Gen-Y- leaning appeal. Many of Life's 13 cuts, including "What About" and "Slipping Away" are basic, dramatic, and cool, Dope proving themselves no slaves to rock/metal fashion while still existing within their modern musical milieu. --Katherine Turman

(note: this was originally written on amazon.co.uk by ME, and this is an exact copy of the one on co.uk, excluding this small note here)
Why haven't you already bought this CD already? What has attracted you to this CD in the first place? Well Dope are pretty big over in the US, and they damn well deserve to be big over here!
You might have heard their track Debonair on the Fast & The Furious soundtrack or the Scream 3 soundtrack, or alternatively you might have heard their cover of Dead Or Alive's 80's classic You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)! Well neither of these tracks or on this album, but this album doesn't need these great tracks, as the songs on it already are class! Let's run them through shall we?
Take Your Best Shot: Opens with a Barney (yes Barney), doing his little sing song, then gun shots, and a little kiddie telling us exactly what they think of Barney...... Pure class already! Then all of a sudden the music explodes and we have one of the best openers on a CD ever! The song is about taking your best shot in life, and just doing all you can!
Now Or Never: First single of the album, and it has some awesome riffs to it that will leave you hooked, not to forget an un-forgettable chorus!
Nothing (Why): One of my many fav tracks on this album, but this song really stands out! None of the foul-mouthed language in it, that you'd expect, but rather lyrics coming straight from Edel Dope's heart, about him and his girl having nothing together, so why bother?
Stop: Fast paced track, that would work perfectly on a dance floor, but still keeps Dope's heavyness, and an awesome track!
Thanks For Nothing: What can I say about this track? Well apart from IT ROCKS! As you can see from the title the chorus is exactly that, and the song is based on that ideaology!

I won't be on my soapbox as much as I was last time. It seems that I pretty much agree with the general concensus on this album. I thought it was a great sophmore effort. It wasn't quite as dark or grungy as "Felons," but it showed off the rest of their talents and what they as a band are capable of. And just a quick note to all those who keep saying that this isn't real "hardcore," and that this is weak, I just have a quick question: Did it ever occur to any of you geniuses that maybe Dope never meant for themselves to be put in the same category as slayer, deicide, downset, or other groups that simply see how heavy they are capable of playing, all while disregarding the amount of quality music that gets lost in the process? You want hardcore, check out Chimaira and back off, because you obviously don't know that there exists several different categories in music, and especially in this genre.
One Love

i have just heard this album and i thought it was much better than the first one which i thought was not so good. i dont know why people dont like this group all becuase of all the things tripp eisen had to say about him. i think it has nothin to do what people say it is all about what the music is all about.so i would have to give this review a 4 star for him not listening to other crap that has been going on.

Some people say Dope's bad for you. Some say it's good. Others don't mind it. Well, the ones who think it's bad for you $uck, the ones that say it's good rule, and the others have never heard of it. Yes, Dope is back, with a new lineup and a new sound, making it a definite for you collection. If you've never heard Dope (most people haven't), you MUST check them out. They're a really good band, but don't judge them by "Felons And Revolutionaries", no, judge them by "Life".
1.Take Your Best Shot-5/5-A positive song about reaching for your dreams and not taking $h!t from anyone. The shortest song on the album, at 2:47, but timing $ucks.
2.Now Or Never-5/5-The album's first single. This is one of the softest, and has really good lyrics.
3.Nothing (Why)-4/5-Not the best song, the lyrics aren't that great, and the verses really down it. But, I still like it.
4.Stop-5/5-One of my favorites. Fast, loud, and kick-"butt". Very catchy.
5.Thanks For Nothing-4/5-This is a weird song...it's hard to describe. It's very fast (of course), but it just sounds weird.
6.Die MF Die-4/5-Yeah, let's dedicate this one to Mr. Laden. The heaviest on the album. It sounds like something from "Felons & Revolutionaries".
7.What About...-4/5-This song sounds a lot like #3. The lyrics dumb it down and so does the verses. The chorus is good, though.
8.Move It-5/5-"Daddy, when I grw up, I wanna be a topless dancer, so I can make lots of cash" is the starting sentence on this strip-club based sex anthem. It's all about havin' a good time.
9.Jenny's Cryin'-3/5-This is kind of a boring song. The lyrics are good, but I just don't like it for some reason.
10.With Or WIthout You-5/5-One of my favorites. It's definetly the most melodic, he11, it starts out with a piano at the beginning.
