I have a feeling I'll like this CD more later on. As it stands, Privelege, Nowhere Fast, Stellar, Drive, Battlestar Scralatchtica and Pardon Me are all great tunes. Brandon Boyd has a great set of pipes. Unfortunately, it seems sometimes like he is trying to cram all his talent in your face and it comes out sounding like he's straining too hard. Mike Einziger has some great ideas, and creates some really interesting atmospheres with his guitar work. His unique use of phasers is cool and he creates some trippy Satriani-esque moods. But he shows maturity in the sense that whenever it gets a little too trippy and artsy fartsy, he keeps it grounded by adding in some fat-toned distortion riffage. Listen to the opening bars of Pardon Me for a great lesson in efficient dynamic play. Dirk Lance is a great jazzy bassist, and the drumming is good as well. One thing I really like about this record is the way Kilmore's scratching complements the music rather than detracts from it. The DJ battle in "Battlestar" is sweet. Summary: a good CD by talented bunch of musicians. Head and shoulders above most newer rock and metal.

I'm thoroughly impressed with these young musicians. The music varies greatly but isn't so electronic that they sound like little kids (Korn in other words). I still am wondering why the better songs of theirs aren't the radio hits. Drive is definitely a good one.

I like a few of the songs on this album, but overall, I'm not thrilled with it. Alot of the songs sound the same. I think it is another one of the generic new offerings of the times.
