4.0 out of 5 stars You whacky Nu-Metal critics.., December 31, 2010
This review is from: The Illusion Of Progress (Audio CD)
You whacky Nu-Metal critics. Like Unlucky Frank, I listen to it all. One day, in the mood for Helloween (love 7 Sinners), next day Crowded House (holy crap), REO the next (Yikes), Shinedown the next, lets not forget the Beatles. Whether it be Hinder, Seether, Saliva, etc., there are so manny single star "don't waste your money", "it's crap" etc. reviews.

A majority of these appear to be of two types. The bands new release deviates from the original formula. "What are these guys doing, writing ballads now?".
OR, "It all sounds the same, this is not real metal" and direct you to some metalcore band (most of that sounds the same too). Hey, the other day, I did enjoy As I Lay Dying's, An Ocean Between Us, great for hitting the heavy bag, and there is some real singing among all the angry growls).

Hey dudes, variety, IT'S A GOOD THING. And this Staind release has some, not to mention well written songs. So that makes it a 4 star instead of a 3 star, which I would assign to most of the bands putting out this sort of music out.
Generally, for what appears popular in this genre, it's competent musicians, and singers can be very good to average, compensated by production technology. So it all gets a 3 to occasional 4 star.
