Now that there is a significant sample size of Disturbed songs with their 4th album released, I am curious as to what others rank as their favorite Disturbed songs. I am going to list from favorite first and then on down in subsequent order.
1. Stupify 2. Hell 3. Stricken 4. Fear 5. Pain Redefined 6. The Night 7. Remember 8. Indestructible 9. Believe 10. Criminal
On a side note, I think that Indestructible is Disturbed's strongest album to date. I think a lot of people criticize it for the songs sounding the same. I personally think this opinion is off base. I think that what people say sounds the same is actually a misrepresentation of one of the strong suits of this album. What I noticed after listening to it a few times is that this album, more so than any their others, really flows together seamlessly. Many of the songs have their own unique sound but due to the album's solid production, they really transition well which people may misinterpret as sounding the same and not having entirely standout songs. My only disappointment actually is the fact that they didn't put "Hell" in this album. I love that song and can't imagine why it is a B-side. I guess I will have to buy the Stricken single just to get it...*sigh*
no particular order. just my 10 favorite disturbed songs.
im gonna go download 'hell'.
droppin plates stupify run - very sad this song didnt make it on the regular indestructible cd....its better than half the songs on the new cd. inside the fire overburdened stricken avarice bound mistress remember
"Monster" is available on the U.K. tour edition of Ten Thousand Fists "God of the Mind" is featured on the Valentine soundtrack and the Japanese/Australian import versions of The Sickness "Deciever" is on the new album, Indestructible "Prayer" is from the Believe album "Hell" is featured on the Stricken cd single "Run" is on the internet only version of indestructible, which was being sold on the band's website "Parasites" is the bonus track on the Japanese import version of Indestructible "Two Worlds" is also on the U.k. tour edition of Ten Thousand Fists "Sickened" is the b-side featured on the Land of Confusion cd single Lastly, "A Welcome Burden", a b-side from The Sickness is featured on the Dracula 2000 soundtrack
I made a mix with some of my favorites from each of Disturbed's albums (not special editions) and other sources which I named "Deeply Disturbed Mix". It's changed a bit since I first put it together and it's more than 10 songs long, but here it is as it stands now. (Just in the order that the songs are in, not in most to least liked or anything):
1. Voices 2. Pain Redefined 3. Facade 4. Droppin' Plates 5. Inside the Fire 6. Rise 7. This Moment 8. Sons of Plunder 9. Remember 10. Perfect Insanity 11. Stricken 12. Meaning of Life 13. Land of Confusion 14. Indestructible
It's not quite equal with the same number of songs from each album, but that's because there's one album in particular I don't really care for. For my favorite Disturbed album, I really contemplated hard, but couldn't decide between "The Sickness" and "Indestructible", so I guess they're a tie for #1. Second would be "Ten Thousand Fists". Lastly, the album I don't particularly care for is "Believe". There are 4, maybe 5 songs I like on it; the rest...no thanks! I mean, I understand what Disturbed was trying to do with "Believe", but for the sake of stronger, emotional lyrics; they sacrificed the harder edged, fast paced hard rock that we became familiar with from "The Sickness" for a more slowed down, smoother sound to match some of the lyrics in "Believe".
Some people say that Disturbed hit their stride with "Believe" and that every album since ("TTF", "Indestructible") has fallen off the mark. But to me, it's the other way around! After the greatness of "The Sickness", Disturbed tried something a bit different with "Believe", but it didn't quite work the way they hoped it would. So with "TTF", they started to get back on the ball, back to what Disturbed fans were familiar with from "The Sickness". And now with "Indestructible", they got a perfect bullseye!
I haven't heard of some of the songs listed in the earlier posts that are on special editions like "Hell" or "Run", but do have the "Valentine" and "Dracula 2000" Soundtracks that have "God of the Mind" and "A Welcomed Burden" on them. I'm going to try and track those others down to download them somewhere. (Any suggestions as to the best place to find those to download?)
Wow, this one's tough. I can't put ten in rank order because my favorite Disturbed tracks change every so often. So I'll just list ten of my favorites of theirs, in no particular order:
The Night Remember Fear I'm Alive Deify Down With The Sickness (This will always be a fave of mine. It was the first song of theirs I ever heard waaaay back in the summer of 2001, lol. I can't leave out the song that got me hooked on this fantastic band.) Fade To Black (On the "Music As A Weapon II" CD...I know it's not one of their songs, but I think they did a great job covering it. David's vocals sound amazing.) This Moment (Not too many fans of this song, I see. Wonder why?) Criminal Devour (my favorite track on the Believe record)
That's a good question, Scott. I wish they would've played the whole thing too. That being said, I don't think they butchered it at all; they pulled it off better than most other bands that attempted it have, in my opinion. I don't think they intended for it to be a "cover" per se, just more of an homage paid to one of the bands they were influenced by. The same can be said for their live performances of "Walk" by Pantera; David himself says this in an interview that can be found on YouTube.
Some bands I listen to, along with Disturbed, are Breaking Benjamin, Finger Eleven, and Rise Against They're pretty much along the same lines. I know it's a little late on the post, but these could be some ideas for a birthday or next X'mas.
Although not many Metal heads will agree with me "The Game" is both Disturbed's best song and it is also it's worst.
That is why it is #1 to me.
The rest of the list would be: Sickness Every song on Believe except "Mistress" (To save me some space) Nearly every song from Ten Thousand Fists from their the list turns into tolerable except their latest track "Another Way To die" which might make it into my top ten.
