Editorial Reviews

Produced by Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, Korn, Metallica) and mixed by Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Limp Bizkit, Foo Fighters), the 12-track collection finds the Ann Arbor-based quartet in a more reflective - but no less aggressive - frame of mind. Since their foundation in 1997, TapRoot - Stephen Richards (vocals), Mike DeWolf (guitars), Philip Lipscomb (bass), and Jarrod Montague (drums) - have earned a rabid following among discerning hard rock loyalists.

After hearing Taproot's 2 newest albums, "Plead the Fifth", and "Episodes", I decided to seek out the band's first three albums, "Gift", "Welcome", and "Blue-Sky Research", as curiosity peaked my interest. I must say, I was blown away at the quality showcased. But, it's this record I really want to share my two cents on first. "Welcome" is the record that blew me away the most. I can't even put into words how impressed I am with this record. It's one of the most definitive records of the early 2000's, in my opinion.

The album starts off with a bang with "Mine", which perfectly sets the theme for the record. A problem with it is that you can't really distinguish the lead vocals with the background vocals, especially evident in the verses, but that's only a minor problem. First single "Poem" is among one of the biggest highlights of the record, with a very catchy chorus, and is an overall blast to listen to. Next up, "Everything", speaks about child abuse, and how someone can save you from your troubles as an orphan. "Art" is the album's first ballad, and is more reminiscent of "I" from their previous album, "Gift", but with violins added to add emotion.

"Myself" brings back the heaviness, and is the heaviest song on the entire album, and also features a sample of their song, "Again and Again" from "Gift". "When" is more of a hopeful song that encourages change. "Fault" is one of the heavier tracks, and one of the catchier and more likeable tracks as well. "Sumtimes" is the typical Taproot song, talking about how sometimes a person can appreciate his own self the most.

"Breathe", even though my least favorite song on the album, still has a positive message of not giving up when you're going through hard times.

I LOVED Gift, in fact i still love it. After hearing Again and Again, I was sold. Gift is one of my favorite cds. Very Heavy, however Gift had alot of "mindless heavyness". Dont get me wrong, I love heavyness, but the songs on Gift were so similar, even though most songs rule, the cd is quite repetitive. Now I was expecting more of the same heavyness from Welcome, but I still didnt know what to expect. This cd is similar to Korn's Untouchables because the music was different than the previous cds, but it takes time to get used to. Thats how Welcome is. I found that Welcome became better and better with each listen. Indeed its more melodic than Gift, but its good melodic, not Pop melodic. Thank god Stephen Richards still screams...that rules. Basically, I think most Taproot fans will eventually enjoy this cd, you just need to give it some time to get used to it and listen with an open mind.

This CD is filled with deep, melodic, emotional, and hard rock music that will leave you in the dust. "Welcome" is one of those CD's you can just put in and let run from top to bottom. From the metal sounds of "Dreams" to the soft personal touch of songs such as "Like", this album will take you on a ride you won't soon forget. The CD's single, "Poem" is an in-your-face metal song with emotionally charged lyrics backed by a massive chorus that seems to leave you in awe. It's so rare to see a band acknowledging that they are actually singing a song, "This song is a poem to myself" exemplifies what make a song a song, without music it's just a poem. Taproot seemed to surpass the expectations put forth by "Gift." You can look forward to great things from this band if they keep turning out albums like "Welcome" in the years to come. Without a doubt, worth the price of the CD.

I'm not going to judge Welcome in comparison with Gift.Each album has it's own good and bad elements, Gift was hard hitting and heavy, Welcome was more mellower and contains very catchy choruses with a lot of the heaviness we came to know and love in Gift.I'm very glad I bought this cd, it comes to show how much Taproot matured, musically.This is my review for every track:
1.Mine-Second single and great intro song, heavy chorus and nice verse line, the verse keeps getting heavier and goes into the point of screaming in the chorus.10/10
2.Poem-First single,awesome song, I didn't think it was better than "Mine" but nonetheless awesome riffs and extremely catchy chorus.9/10
3.Everything-I like this song, depressing, semi-moody song.Best part of the lyrics(Look at me now, I hope your proud, your everything to me.)9/10
4.Art-Probably the second most moving out of all the songs, this might bore some people, I love how they use some classical instruments such as violins and the bridge riff is awesome with Stephen screaming.9/10
5.Myself-The intro starts out heavy with start-stop riffs then goes quiet, the verse is nice, chorus is hard-hitting and heavy with an Alice in Chains sounding second vocals singing and a scream to be mixing in.A really nice ending after the pause.10/10
6.When-A song about frustration,depression, and hopelessness. The chorus riff is ,in my opinion, awesome as hell.Stephen growls near the end of the song, giving it a powerful feel to it.8/10
7.Fault-Starts off with an awesome riff you can jump to just a great riff.The chorus is alright.8/10
8.Sumtimes-Intro riffs for this song is...so, so.Usual Taproot verse. This song isn't that great,still heavy and the lyrics are uplifting.7/10
9.Breathe-I haven't listened to this song much.
