Editorial Reviews

Disturbed began building 'Asylum' as soon as they got off the road in the summer of 2009. Officially entering Groovemaster Studios in February 2010, the band set about self-producing the album, as they did with 'Indestructible.' Draiman declares, 'This record shows a certain degree of maturation and enhanced complexity. 'Asylum' is still identifiably Disturbed, but the evolution is clear. It preserves the elements of what we do but at a more advanced level.'
Each CD includes a card to access exclusive download or stream of the documentary 'Decade of Disturbed' that recalls ten years of history in the most candid of ways. It takes you through years of countless tours, dedication and sacrifice stripping away all the gloss and letting the real story be told... the documentary is about the fans and their brotherhood that has been formed with the band.

Also Available as a Limited Edition CD+DVD:
-Expanded packaging in digi-pak with 16-page booklet
-CD: Standard album track listing plus 2 bonus live tracks 'Down With The Sickness' & 'Stricken'
-DVD: 'Decade Of Disturbed' (documentary) and Disturbed 'Dissected' (band showing/teaching fans to play tracks):

By Michael Brent Faulkner, Jr. VINE VOICE on August 31, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Asylum is every bit as much a Disturbed album as 2008's Indestructible. Disturbed pound through every bit of ASYLUM providing an enjoyable, though not revolutionary effort. The album is cliché metal with strong, anthemic choruses that often namecheck the title of the song for the fan's cohesion sake. The beginning of the album lays better than the end, but that is typical of so many efforts today. I believe part of that is that Disturbed's best, most cutting edge material appears at the forefront. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing here that is bad by any means, but after a while, the album grows a bit "same-y" if you catch my drift.

The album opens up strongly with "Remnants," an instrumental cut that builds in intensity and instrumentation. The grand guitar work here foreshadows what is to be a sick display of guitar solos and unabashedly strong guitar riffs. Title cut "Asylum" follows, proving to be the `cream of the crop' cut of the album opening with a fine bass-driven groove. Often times title cuts disappoint, but "Asylum," much like "Indestructible" from Indestructible proves to be a key listen. The refrain for "Asylum" is well crafted as far as songwriting appeal and the guitar work is jagged and desirable, archetypical of metal. While "Asylum" is by no means the second coming, it is a solid cut and one of the best from this album of the same name.

"The Infection" is equally as alluring as "Asylum" if no moreso. Here frontman David Draiman's vocals are slightly more present and balanced within the production, adding additional clarity to his vocals.

But please, read on as to why I am assigning the highest possible rating to an album that, thus far anyway, has been hotly disputed in terms of quality. I am going to explain my reasons the best I can, lest I be labeled a "fanboy" or something equally ridiculous and baseless. (This will be a rather long review and yes, I will be explaining each song, so if that isn't what you want to read by all means move on.) Perhaps I am going deaf in my old age (after all, I am pushing 30) but after having listened to this album all the way through several times in the last two days, I find nothing at all "stale, "generic," or "boring" about it.

In the post-Sickness era, progression has become what Disturbed has been all about. This applies to both their musicianship and their lyrics. The Believe record showed the band slightly expanding on the sound they established two years prior, with lyrics tackling the thorny issues of faith and religion. And how can we forget David Draiman's beautiful melodic singing on cuts such as "Remember," "Awaken," "Mistress," and the closing ballad "Darkness?" Ten Thousand Fists marked the first appearance of solos played by guitarist Dan Donegan, and the album's lyrics took on a very political/social nature. (TTF, as it turns out, has become my least favorite Disturbed album. A handful of great tracks, but too many mediocre ones that felt tacked on.) Indestructible was an even bigger step forward musically with Danny doing even more shredding and the rest of the band stepping up their game as well. Lyrically speaking, the songs were "darker." One need only look to tracks such as "Haunted" and "The Night" for evidence of this, not to mention the single "Inside The Fire" which dealt with the suicide of an ex-girlfriend of David.

Asylum is by far my favorite album. I own all the others except for The Sickness, however I have heard the album before. And Asylum is an album that has it all--its definitely not mediocre. It's not even good. It's GREAT. After hearing Believe, The Sickness, Indestructible, Ten Thousand Fists and then even The Lost Children, Asylum is definitely my top favorite. I will go through every song and rate them separately, and explain what I liked/disliked about the song.

Remnants: just an instrumental. Not a bad one, but I'm definitely not an instrumental person. 8/10

Asylum: the title track is perfect. I love the guitar riffs, the lyrics, the way David's voice carries, I love everything about this song. 10/10

The Infection: not a bad song, but probably the most forgettable on the album. 7/10

Warrior: my second favorite on the album. It's like a hardcore version of Asylum and keeps you on your toes. 10/10

Another Way To Die: this song was okay. On the album, it was my least favorite. I liked the lyrics but I just forgot it was there. 6/10

Never Again: I love this song, it sends a very powerful message. 9/10

The Animal: I think everyone knows this song, and I absolutely love it. It is my third favorite, behind Warrior. 10/10

Crucified: this song was all right. I never really got into it until after about six listens, but it did grow on me. 8/10

Serpentine: I love this! My favorite line of the song is "your heart is serpentine" 10/10

My Child: I like this one a lot too. 9/10

Innocence: awesome song! Not my favorite, but really good. 9/10

So all in all, there was no "bad" song. Just some that weren't as memorable as the others. You will not regret buying Asylum.
