I bought Disturbed's THE SICKNESS, after not being able to get "The Game" out of my head following the third time I heard it on the "Funky Monkey" FM station here in Tacoma. This was already after I had heard "Stupify" (which I had originally thought was called "StupidFly"), "Voices" and "Down With The Sickness" for the hundredth time, each. While I kinda liked each song to some extent, I had always found myself making fun of them, especially with lead vocalist David Draiman's unique, and often annoying, vocal ticks and mannerisms (including the repetitive "Zooooo-ah!!!" in "Voices" and "OH-WA-A-A-A-AH!!" in "Down With The Sickness"). But then, I heard "The Game" and I decided, what the...
"The Game" has everything: Great keyboard sound, great drumbeat/bass, knife-edged guitar in all the right places, and a masterful combination of wistful-sounding, melodic, tenor-pitched singing with angry screaming that has all the impact of a kick to the head. And, you can dance to it! (Although I don't dance.) Above anything and everything else on this CD, "The Game" is a masterpiece--of its time and genre.
As I finally got around to playing the rest of the CD, I found that (to my surprise) most of the other songs are very good, and do not sound very much like each other. That really surprised me, because I had found the first three songs I had heard by them to be a bit too similar to each other (especially "Voices" and "Down With The Sickness"). Although similar themes are rotated around quite a bit on the CD, there is much greater variety in the music than I had expected to hear. "Violence Fetish" has a heavy-industrial sound, and the hook line "Bring the Violence/It's significant" is used to good effect.

Even now that nu-metal is about as popular as flannel, I firmly believe that "The Sickness" is a great debut (one of the best debuts this side of the year 2000) from one of nu-metal's best bands. Disturbed's follow up album, 2002's "Believe," is more mature than this C.D., but "The Sickness" is more imaginative. And it's full of raw aggression, off-the-wall energy, and catchy songs (almost every one of these songs is very catchy). "Stupify" has vocal hooks, whereas many of the other songs (i.e. "The Game" and "Down With The Sickness") have cool, fast scat (by frontman David Draiman). "Voices" is another highlight (it has stutter-step rapping and syncopated riffs), as is "Fear" (which has eerie electronics and a mosh-pit ready, fist-pumping chorus) and "Shout 2000" (which is a louder, more pissed off version of a song originally done by a band called Tears For Fears). Finally, with violent lyrics and mean vocals, "Meaning of Life" is a good anthem to listen to when you're mad at the world.

It may not be the most innovative or mature album ever, but this is essential nu-metal and a must have for everybody who has 1990's nostalgia. The bottom line is if you hate nu-metal, it would probably be wise to give "The Sickness" a wide birth, but if you do like this genre and this band, or if you are willing to listen with an open mind, you should really like this C.D.

6. Fear (7/10)- Another song that grew on me, Its great but one of the worst on the CD
7. Numb (10/10) - Tied for my favourites on this CD

10. Shout 2000 (7/10)- Another song I skip alot, its still good
11. Droppin' Plates (6/10) - This is close to worst song on the CD for me

If you are a metal fan, this album deserves to be included in your collection. This CD starts rocking from the opening song and doesn't let up until the end. They have come up with a new, unique sound that doesn't rip off other bands. Dave (lead singer) uses an effective mixture of singing with some rap thrown in. His voice is powerful and he uses it well. The guitars and drums also sound great. The electronics are, for the most part, used sparingly but are a little overused on "The Game."
If you like bands like Slipknot, StainD, Static-X, Godsmack, and Sevendust you will dig this CD. If you are looking for a death metal band like Fear Factory or Sepultura then it will probably not be heavy enough for you.
Overall, this is the best CD I've bought in the last year. See them live if you get the chance. You wont regret it.
