Biography

Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter's modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album's rough-around-the-edges production consisted of inebriated answering machine samples, lavish bass lines, and jagged guitars set to a backdrop of drum machines punctuated by the unfurling of Richard Patrick's vocal prowess and signature ...

Editorial Reviews

Eclecticism has been a hallmark of Richard Patrick's career in Filter, and it's administered with crushing efficiency on The Trouble With Angels. Fans weaned on the industrial outbursts and corrosive beats of 1995's Short Bus and 1999's Title of Record will be ecstatic to hear Patrick's unmistakable scream and unflinching honesty dominating the new album.

On the surface, leadoff single 'The Inevitable Relapse' details a shattered man succumbing to addiction, but can be read as a study of love lost, consumption or obsession, depending on your perspective. '...it's really a love song' says Richard.

Filter's The Trouble With Angels contains Richard Patrick's strongest, most aggressive songwriting yet.

Customer Reviews

I recommend this album to Filter fans and rock fans in general.
Herbert West
This new music certainly will satisfy most Filter fans as it has Richard's voice in fine fashion as well as the bombastic sound we have come to expect from this band.
Kenneth Scott Plummer
Just dont expect a whole album of it, as about half of it resembles the "Title of Record" and "Amalgamut" sound- but in a very, very good way.

To start things off, I need to admit that when "Anthems for the Damned" came out, I listened to it once or twice, and then quickly came to the conclusion that Filter was done. Anthems was pretty much a complete disaster- stale sounding and boring, it seemed like Richard Patrick had almost completely forgotten about the edgy, industrial qualities of the Filter's early sound. "Anthems" seemed like Filter dying to be U2, to be considered more grown-up, and completely vanquish that angry, angsty, rough around the edges sound of their early years. Complete with hollow production and vacuous, politcal lyrics, it was easy to see why Anthems sent so many Filter fans running, occasionally mourning the loss of one of their favorite bands with repeat listens of Short Bus and Title of Record. Well, here's a message for anyone who left the Filter camp: Now would be a damn good time to come back.

When Rich started posting Facebook updates about the new record being a return to the Short Bus sound, I laughed, and figured he was just full of it. Once I heard the lead single, "The Inevitable Replapse," my doubt transformed into eager anticipation. The song was heavy, very reminiscent of Short Bus, except now Rich could sing pretty well. Fast forward to the release of "The Trouble With Angels," and it only took one or two listens to know that my anticipation of the new Filter album was not in vain- this is great stuff, and while not every song here is in the Short Bus fashion, every song is, I am glad to say, interesting and good.

The opening trio of "The Trouble With Angels" is the type of material that should get old, disenchanted fans excited.

As I said in a recent Korn review at 53 very few bands still make me all giddy with the anticipation of a new release. That almost childlike excitement of walking into a store that still sells penny candy. Filter will always be on that list and 'Short Bus' on the one that includes ten cds I could take with me if going to be marooned on a desert isle. This new music certainly will satisfy most Filter fans as it has Richard's voice in fine fashion as well as the bombastic sound we have come to expect from this band. Unfortunately with all that the internet has to offer these days one can hear a bit of each track before even walking into the candy store...ah sorry...I mean the music store. Gone are the days of buying an album and taking it home to hear it for the very first time. I knew I would like this cd very much and I do. Just like with Korn and several other bands you know the second you hear a Filter song. As one reviewer stated it does seem to envelop all that Filter has done before into one nicely packaged cd...oh and by the way...I like the packaging. Like all new music it doesn't always leap out at you with all that you wanted in that first listen. This one however was pleasing from the first listen on. Great job to Richard Patrick and the boys of Filter...

It's hard to listen to "The Trouble with Angels" without being reminded of Filter's (or more specifically frontman Richard Patrick's) early work. Like the band's debut, "Short Bus," it's abrasive, rough around the edges, and yet, solid throughout and completely focused. Never does the album steer into left-field like "Anthems for the Damned" did before it, which could be seen as both a positive and a negative. For as solid as Filter's fifth is, it lacks an experimental edge that listeners have grown accustomed to, for better or for worse.

Yet, with his ever-rotating line-up, Richard Patrick is playing to his strengths. While Filter have found common ground with many groups in the past, they have always stood out from the pack, whether it be their post-grunge brethren in the 90's or their short-lived alignment with the nu-metal boom just a short decade ago. There's a certain magic to each Filter record that can't be heard anywhere else, and nobody knows how to do it better than Patrick, period. There's a reason why he has always been the defining factor in the band for all these years, and this album is yet another testament to his brilliance and resilience. "The Trouble with Angels," in turn, is less about pushing the band's sound forward than it is about re-establishing and reminding the world why the band was such a force to be reckoned with when it splashed onto the scene oh-so many years ago.

This is the best Filter album since Short Bus. Inspired - not contrived - and 100% real.

wow - I didn't know he still had it in him.

Great job, Rich.

I have been listening to Filter since the release of Short Bus and have been a huge fan. I even bought Army of Anyone and enjoyed it, but it was no filter. When Anthems for the Damned came out I was excited for new Filter, but when I heard it was a bit disappointed because it was not hard core Filter. I bought this album on the fact that it was Filter. After a single listen I was blown away. Not only has Filter once again gone back to Filter, but I can honestly say this is their best album to date. Just about everytime I turn on my iPod I listen to this album. Don't pass up this album.
