Customer Reviews

See, to me, Limp Bizkit is like that bad relationship that you just can't seem to get out of.
A. Estes
The album shows a new level of sophistication and really demonstrates how they have musically matured as artists.
Darko Brazil
This is harder and heavier than their last album Results May Vary which wasn't liked very well.

Limp Bizkit is back with their fifth album "The Unquestionable Truth, Part I" which is a surprisingly good effort.

Limp Bizkit were never a great band, but they did know how to make good frat-boy rock. Their first three albums "Three Dollar Bill Ya" (1997), Significant Other (1999) and "Chocolate Starfish" (2000) are a lot of fun. They were one of the better bands of the Nu-Metal genre, and cranked out heavy songs, with good hooks, and sing-along-choruses. It was perfect music for High School and College kids. "Nookie" was like the "Cherry Pie" of the late 90s.

After reaching their plateau with "Chocolate Starfish," the Bizkit Empire started to crumble. First, guitarist Wes Borland left the band. He was not only the most creative member of the band and their biggest talent, but was their guiding force. Then there was Fred Durst's embarrassing public infatuation with Brittany Spears. The bands search for a new guitar player, in which they had the contenders sign a contract forfeiting any music they played at the tryout, further damaged their reputation. Then after hooking up with guitarist Mike Smith, the band released the horrific "Results May Vary" album. Although it went platinum, it was almost universally panned by both critics and all, but the most hard-core of fans. Add to this the fact that by the mid-`00s, the whole Nu-Metal genre was passé. Limp Bizkit, were, like, sooo 1999. By the release of "Results" Limp Bizkit was going down. They were about as cool as Warrant and their future looked bleak...

But then guitarist Wes Borland returned to the fold, so it seemed that all was not lost. Could his return revitalize the band? The answer is, quite simply, yes.

"The Unquestionable Truth, Part I, is a strong comeback for the band.

What I am about to say is directed towards those of you who hate Limp Bizkit without having any real reason to...

First, I shall say this. I am a huge music fan. I listen to all kinds of music, from metal to electronica to acoustic to you name it. My musical taste expands from all realms, including Marilyn Manson, Prince, Bjork, Green Day, etc. I am not some teenage punk who spends his days in Hot Topic looking over the newest "The Used" t-shirts. But I am a teenager, 16 years old.

Limp Bizkit was introduced to me back in 1999. Since then, I have fallen madly in love with them, disliked them (as well as all other nu metal bands), and then matured. My musical tastes had drastically changed over time, and I didn't even want to give this band or my once favorite, Korn, a second chance. Then, one day, out of pure curiosity, I listened to these bands again, especially LB with the release of this new EP, and discovered that I liked them for a reason. I wasn't some dumb little kid who didn't know good music from bad, though I would agree that I listen to much better music now overall. But these bands had a heart, a reason, something to say (even if they didn't say it in the best way they could have). And that's something these new "punk" bands like New Found Glory, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, etc. could never say about themselves without crossing their fingers behind their backs.

Now, later nu-metal overall did become watered down and repetitive. But look at LB and Korn's earlier works and you'll feel a raw energy, something much deeper that most people seem to overlook. The music isn't only heavy, but funky, head bobbin. The number one fault of everyone who has become a typical LB hater is that they look at the band and especially Fred Durst in the complete wrong light.

Ok we all know that the return of Wes Borland is the best thing since sliced bread. The REAL question is, after ruling the late 90's like Guns n Roses did during the late 80's, would Bizkit with this new release be able to ressurect their career better than the Guns did?

And the answer is...No.

However, this album is an intriguing try- that's for sure. Wes Borland- the only reason Bizkit sounded cooler than all the other Nu metal bands (thank GOD this "rage against the suburbs" music known as Nu Metal is gone)- returns to kick some serious ass, Fred delivers a passable Zack from Rage imitation (kinda like if you don't dig the Stones you dig the Black Crowes) and the band kicks out the jams fine and dandy.

But this whole "lay low" strategy to try to get some street cred back is comical. Bizkit NEVER HAD street cred, and either you took the band for what it was (not a meal, but a damn good candy bar) or you thought this band sucked, and there was no in between. In fact, the label, NOT the band, probably orchestrated some of this charade to cut their losses in case the record goes south. (Call me an Oliver Stone JFK conspiracy type, but this promotion plan- or LACK OF PROMOTION PLAN- is weeeiiiirddddd...)

People who liked this band during the 3 Dollar days and who dig Wes Borland- the Mick Taylor of his generation- will dig the record. No one else will, but nice try fellas.

BUT! after listening to this crap known as indie rock (these bands in suits are about as exciting as watching paint dry) it DOES make one long for the Nookie days.

Sad but true.
