A Quick Track-By-Track

I was introduced to this band a while back, but not as long ago as some of u. Break the Cycle was the first album of Staind's i got to hear and it was really fantastic. Outside, its been awhile, for you, cant believe, all very good songs. I did go back and listen to their harder stuff after that, also really good. Their next album was just okay for me but their were a few great songs, especially So Far Away and Zoe Jane. Chapter V was pretty disappointing; very forgettable. In fact falling, run away, and right here are the only titles i remember from that record. Their most recent effort prior to this one, the illusion of progress, was simply not that good. It seemed at that point that they were just going through the motions.

This left me kinda concerned: for the most part Stainds albums were getting progressively worse. But when I heard Not Again and saw they were going back to roots a bit, i felt this record was worth a listen. Boy, was i right! It inspired me to make this track by track review of the record.

So its simple how i do the score. I grade each song out of five, then i average it to get the score of the record. I round the regular way, .5 or above rounds up.

Eyes Wide Open (5/5): Cool, hard hitting intro song. If you didn't know what this album was going to be all about, you would know after hearing this song. Some screaming, awesome chorus, and it flows very nicely into Not Again.

Not Again (5/5): What a single should accomplish: it should be a standout track, it should give insight to the rest of the album, it should have an appeal beyond the regular fan base, and it should be freaking awesome. Mission accomplished with this song.

I was very surprised when hearing this album. Actually, I was more surprised when I first heard the opening track "Eyes Wide Open" first released to the internet months before the release. I anticipated this album so much when I first heard that song and the outcome was even better than I expected. Staind definitely delivers a heavy album that stays true to what they said about going back to their roots. After the disappointing Illusions of Progress, which had me thinking that Staind were suffering from illusions of having any progress, Staind comes back with a smack in our faces after a slow, dull, and boring album. I have enjoyed a lot of music Staind, with the exception of their previous album, since "Just Go" hit the airwaves. Slower songs like "So Far Away", "Schizophrenic Conversations, and "Epiphany" are also enjoyable songs. However, after their last record, it is nice to hear a full out aggressive album. For those enjoyed hits like "Mudshovel", "Falling", "Price To Play", or "King Of All Excuses" then this is your album. I'll give you my input on the album's tracks.

1. Eyes Wide Open 10/10 - The opening song that I mentioned before which brought so much anticipation for what album was going to come. The opening bass thumps heavy much like the song "Mudshovel" and what follows is an explosion of guitars and pounding drums. Aaron yells and screams the most aggressive vocals he has done in a long time during the verses. After aggressive verses comes a melodic but heavy chorus that will get stuck in your head. Definitely one of their most memorable tracks and probably their best opening track off of any of their albums.

2. Not Again 10/10 - The best choice for a first single. The opening of the song gives a feeling of "Just Go" from Dysfunction.

In my world you now have THREE albums. All I'm going to say is welcome back Staind. I know I speak for many when I say that.

If you are like me you might remember that bass intro when you were growing up in high school...moving into the resounding... "youuuu taaaake away". I was hooked from that moment. Then something changed with Staind. They became more commercial less raw and powerful. Less gritty... basically not the Staind that hooked me from the beginning. I honestly haven't touched their albums since "break the cycle". I read pre order reviews and interviews on this album saying that the band was going back to their raw hardcore roots. I can tell you this, if you loved early Staind BUY THIS ALBUM! If you are a fan of post "break the cycle" or even the slower side of that album, you may be thoroughly disappointed. This album has intense guitar riffs and gutsy intense vocals (with some old school Aaron Lewis screaming). In closing if you want to get heavy this is your album, if you want the sad dreamy ballads look elsewhere.

This is one of their best! I love the harder edge that still keeps a little of traditional Staind. I will be listening to this over and over for a while!

They are back. this is the Staind of old! Saw Aaron Lewis live and wondered if they would ever get back to the old hard stuff that made them stars after his solo career. No more worries. THEY ARE BACK

This is what the fans have been calling for for years...Staind the way they began...Hard, intense, in your face and beautiful...The guitar by Mike Mushok is unbelievable...His baritone guitar keeps your body tingling for hours after the fact...Riffs ring in your mind...He does a lot of shredding in this album, unlike the last several albums, and does it flawlessly...

Aaron Lewis is simply Aaron...Introspective lyrics that ring a chord with anyone...His vocals are a phenomenon...Goes from singing a heartfelt melody to gut-wrenching screams in an instant...This is truly how Staind is meant to be experienced...

Many people who have come to enjoy Staind over the past couple of albums will not recognize the band...They go back to their roots in this one, their seventh chapter as a band...It's back to bone-crushing, face melting, HARD music...And God bless 'em for it...So before you start hating on the band and album, remember that this is who they started out as...And this album can almost be seen as a curtain call for all of the fans who have been there since "Tormented", "Dysfunction", and even "Break the Cycle"...

I give it 5 stars...Simply Perfection.
