This album is perfect for anyone who enjoyed Toxicity, it follows the same guidelines, although a bit less experimenting, a little less focused on the music side, but more harder, and more angry and anti-political. This album sure grabs you in it's first three minutes and never lets go until the final chyme has sounded.
But like I said, this album sure does show sings of what SOAD was, throughout songs like Suite-Pee, Soil, etc, where the music is a lot less rock radio pop but nonetheless clever like SOAD always has been. But this album sure does tell you where Toxicity has come from. With the two primary radio-hit songs, 'Spiders (dreams are made winding through my head)', and especially the goofy but rock-hard hit 'Sugar (In the end it all goes away)', I sure have proved this.
This album sure shows angry though, and a lot of cursing as well. It has it's share of screaming, and loud guitars. The most interesting part of the album is something that always grabs my attention about SOAD, is that they can be funny, suicidal, serious, melodic, rhythmic, and overal rock, all in one, and yet it all makes since and you just can't help but enjoy it. This album should be in any collection that has a really used up Toxicity copy, because it really feels like it's counterpart on many songs. This is a very overlooked album, and although it doesn't shine as much as Toxicity does, in it's own way, it does have a glow.
