Product Description

ALIENT ANT FARM TRUANT

Amazon.com

"Speeding faster towards disaster." When most angst-filled frontmen spit out a line like that it just sounds ridiculously clichéd. But when Alien Ant Farm frontman Dryden Mitchell conjures it up for "1000 Days," the opening track of his band's second major label album, it's easy to believe he has an intimate connection with every syllable. Just as the Los Angeles quartet found itself in the right place at the right time with its enormously successful 2001 debut, ANThology, a tour bus accident nearly took the singer's life. The group attempts to put the tragedy behind it on truANT, but this is undeniably a more muscular, heavy-hearted affair than its predecessor, particularly in searing songs like "Sarah Wynn" and "These Days." Better still, the disc was produced by Stone Temple Pilots' Dean and Robert DeLeo, whose own experience with life's occasional pitfalls no doubt gave the band some much-needed direction. --Aidin Vaziri

Customer Reviews

After a few repeats, I really like much of the album.
Brian McLaughlin
They've also changed it up a lot with a nice variety of different styles of music.
Alan Pounds
The majority of the songs on here are very good, and they carry the album.

I didn't even like the first Alien Ant Farm album very much. It seemed a bit mediocre. The Michael Jackson cover of "Smooth Criminal" was way overplayed. These are reasons that some poor souls will never listen to "Truant" and hear the vast improvement they've made since. Dryden (lead vocals) was almost killed in a bus accident while they were one tour for their last album. It seems that this incident really affected the way the write and play music. Every track on the album is great. It's been an every-day-listen for a very long time. They've also changed it up a lot with a nice variety of different styles of music. Possibly one of my most played albums I own. Do yourself a favor, blow off all those people who think Alien Ant Farm stinks, due to an over-saturated radio played Michael Jackson cover. Buy Truant, and be amazed.

I wasn't too impressed by Alien Ant Farm's debut album, "ANThology," when it came out back in 2001. I bought it mainly for "Smooth Criminal," but only dug a few other tunes on it, like "Movies," "Attitude," and "Sticks And Stones." They just kinda faded from the banks of my memory after awhile, and I basically stopped caring about them. I heard of their bus crash, and was sorry to hear about it, but otherwise, I was not interested in the band anymore.
Then, in comes "truANT," an album produced by two members of one of my favorite bands, Stone Temple Pilots. So, I'm thinking, maybe this one will be better. Yet I still ignored the album's release. I did hear their first single from the disc, "These Days," and instantly fell for it's irrisistable hook and heavy sound. I then heard their second single, "Glow," and I came to a conclusion: I was going to get this album! "Glow" has a jangly acoustic sound, with a great hook that has fitting, if not too upfront, lyrics like "I'll be the fuse that she blows, and even with the lights out, we'll glow."
Lead singer Dryden Mitchell's lyrics are as unusually clever, and pronounced with the utmost intensity, almost like a metalhead Michael Stipe. With riffs ranging from Rage Against The Machine to well, Stone Temple Pilots, AAF displays that they know how to be underrated and could prove themselves if ever came the challenge. Their mix of metal, punk, alternative and latin give them a bit of a one-up over most bands coming out these days as either emo, hard rock or garage (not that's bad, just bland). It's nice to see a band come out who can throw us a change-up every so often.

When "These Days" started hitting the radio, I wasn't impressed. I bought ANThology on the strength of "Movies", many months before "Smooth Criminal" became the sensation it did. My favorite tracks on ANThology were "Flesh and Bones", "Attitude" and "Sticks and Stones". These were songs that pushed the typical alterna-rock-pop envelope, and were the songs that sorted the men from the "I only bought it for 'Smooth Criminal'" boys. "These Days" struck me as neither original, nor skilled. I had fears that the Sophomore Album Curse had struck.
However, after "Quiet" started getting some airplay, I gave the disk a chance. I really liked the production of the vocals on "Quiet", or as the household affectionately refers to it, "the bumblebee song" (F- This concept is unappealing). "Glow", nestled between the two radio hits, became my first new favorite song (it's *ALL* about the clapping), immediately followed by "Tia Lupe". (I'm surprised at how low others have rated this track.) "1000 days", "Drifting Apart", "Never Meant" and "Hope" have all grown on me as well. Now that I've listened to the album extensively, I feel my initial fears were unfounded. They haven't lost their touch.
However, what, aside from RIAA's Iron Hand of Subpoena, is to stop you from just getting the tracks? I'm glad you asked. This has got to be the best execution of album art concept EVER. Before the album was released, when all Amazon displayed was the cover, I realized I needed the Pee-Chee (tm) folder album. I was certainly not disappointed- I now have a handy dandy multiplication table. That's Useful Information.

While touring to support their multi-platinum debut, ANThology, a bus accident left Alien Ant Farm hospitalized, and singer Dryden Mitchell with a broken neck. After the healing, AAF headed back to work on their sophomore album, truANT. They got some production help from Robert and Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, and the end result is a collection of well-crafted songs that is eons better than ANThology.
Make no mistake; this is a rock album. Tracks like "1000 Days", "Drifting Apart", and "These Days", prove that AAF can go riff-for-riff with the best of `em. Dryden Mitchell's vocals are always tight, proving you can be a contemporary rock singer without rapping or growling. Some interesting deviations, however, separate AAF from most mainstream upstarts.
The acoustic toe-tapper, "Glow" will have you singing along on the first listen; it's a good candidate for a single. "Tia Lupe" is a Latin number complete with Cuban percussion and horns. The album's closer, "Hope", is backed by a string arrangement that takes the forefront at 2:42 and offers up one of the best breakdowns you'll ever hear.
Whether these new sounds are the work of the DeLeo brothers is uncertain. What is clear, though, is that truANT proves Alien Ant Farm is more than just a Michael Jackson cover band; they are one of the most talented young bands to emerge in a long time.
The disc also comes with a 25-minute DVD. After watching it, I'm sure that somewhere four guys are saying, "Yeah, my dorky kid brother is in that band, Alien Ant Farm." I say, as long as they keep dropping great albums like truANT they can be as dorky as they want to be.
