1 of 20 thought this review was well written

Please, DON'T buy this album. It is Nu-metal trash. I'm not saying I don't like Nu-metal (I enjoy some Papa Roach.) Of course, go ahead if you like dumbed-down music. The lyrical subject is typical stuff, "My life is so hard, I can't go on boo-hoo," the guitars are tuned to drop-D which shows that the guitarists can barely play, the bass is unaudible, and the drums can't keep a beat. "Close Friends" starts promising but runs down-hill straight away. "Hang on," I hear you say, "The single was quite good." Yes, it is. Otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. "The Way You Like It" is a more promising song. It has a beat and rhythm and is catchy. A typical fun radio hit. But this is the only good track on the album. The other radio hit is good as well. "Giving In" portrays emotion. The song is about the frontman's friend's spiralling drug addiction. It has an alright guitar solo actually even if it is very short.

But the rest is just trash. "Do What You Want To Do" is a poor attempt at making an aggressive song. The chorus is just an obvious Korn attempt. Even though Mark is Jonathan Davis's half-brother doesn't mean he has to rip off him. They use a lot of synth effects, which I don't look for in music but some people do. It is bland and unoriginal. The average teenager would say they could relate and cry to this band. It'd would make me cry BUT it's because it's so horrible. I could relate to them as seeing how washed up and how much they are losers. If you are looking for some Nu-metal to bite your teeth into then buy some Korn stuff, the price will be cheaper probably and you'd get much more enjoyment out of it. This is music for the mainstream, if you aren't in the mainstream then don't touch it.

An easily identified debut that manages to showcase many different aspects of nu metal, but suffers ...

This is one of the worst albums I've ever heard (and I'm really tolerant of NuMetal) , and their other CD is even worse.

I edited the review to give it 1 star. That seems appropiate to me, but if constant wants to change it he can.

Poop... a one word description of this band. And to think that their second album was worse than this one.

pubert forgot punk sucks also. any way the album sounds like emo band with a large, uncomfortable, possibly jagged, foriegn object up thier a55es, this should help describe their tone a little better.

Jesus, this album really was terrible. It's good to see a negative review from you, constant. Keep up the good work.

I don't like Adema, but I don't really like this review either. You could have made it a little more detailed, even though I'm sure listening to the whole thing was tedious enough.
