There are really two ways to look at this album - as a tribute to Lynn from his friends and bandmates, and as a glimpse into the aborted second Snot album, which with Lynn's death was doomed never to happen. Obviously it is a very touching gesture and a testament to how many lives Lynn affected. However, Lynn's death was also the death of one of the best metal bands of the era and while the lyrics are in many cases a heartfelt send-off for a good friend, the music is a scrapbook providing a glimpse into what Snot could have become.
First, lyrically, there are some very touching lyrics. What is interesting is how many different reactions Lynn's death incited - from Serj's poetic celebration of Lynn's virtues to Jonathan Davis's anger and feelings of betrayal and Corey Taylor's shock. Among the more disappointing deliveries is Fred Durst's inane ranting on "Forever"... on one hand, it can be seen as a reaction to the self-rightous a-hole DJ's and music critics who dismissed Lynn as just another worthless drug casualty, which is an honest enough reaction. But at the same time, why sully Lynn's memory by calling out his enemies on this tribute? Also, "Reaching Out" has mostly nonsense lyrics, even though the tune is one of the best on the album musically.
Seen as a glimpse into Snot's aborted second album, Strait Up is both fascinating and massively frustrating. What is immediatly clear is that Snot's music was becoming significantly more dark and serious.Read more ›
1. Starlit Eyes - Serj Tankian: Serj mainly talks through this one. It's a starter on who Lynn was.
2. Take It Back - Jonathan Davis: One of my favorites. Jon Davis always likes to talk about his pain in his songs. This time, it's no exception. He oviosley misses Lynn a lot.
3. I Know Where You're At - M.C.U.D.: MCUD and DJ Product team up for this for a softer melody. It was okay, another song about the pain.
4. Catch A Spirit - Max Cavalera: A high-powered song with high-powered lyrics that also kind of shows how Soulfly sounds (with 2 of the members). Talks about Lynn's spirit above us.
5. Until Next Time - Jason Sears: This is a fast-talking ballet (like all of RKL's songs). This is one of those songs I like for the beat also along with "Take it Back."
6. Divided (An Argument For The Soul) - Brandon Boyd: One of the best songs wheather you like it or not. It's the best song for comforting. You see when someone dies, they're really not gone.
7. Ozzy Speaks - Ozzy Ozbourne: well, since Ozzy dosen't sing Metal-Rap, Ozzy makes a :13 appearence on this track. It's a little note of Ozzy wishing his dear friend goodbye.
8. Angel's Son - Lajon Witherspoon: No wonder why this one was a single! It was the song completely made for the album. It talked about how much pain Lynn went through his whole life. 9.Read more ›

I was a fan of Snot before I bought "Strait Up". I had heard "Angel's Son" and I had always liked Snot's instrumentals so I figured it couldn't be too bad. Read morePublished on January 4, 2013 by Shelley D. Bowen
A very worthy tribute to a nice guy who left us way to soon. Well worth its price for a lots of different singing and writing styles compiled into one nice album.Published on December 7, 2008 by S. Whiteside
