4.5 superbpencils3 | February 1st 11

This is sheer quality from beginning to end. Raining Again, Pardon Me, and the stratospherically beautiful Tangled Up In You make this indisputably amazing.

Bump

2.5 averageCutMan | February 19th 10

Staind continue to be average. Not bad, not good, but average. Occasionally painfully so, especially when a lot of these songs have serious potential for being good. One moment, it's a half-decent modern rock song, and it feels like something impressive is being built up to... But the verse or bridge will end, and we wont get a soaring passage, a solo, a breakdown, or anything to make that build feel worth it. We'll get one more chorus.

Bump

2.5 averageDylan620 | November 21st 09

It's a decent album, even though I nearly fell asleep listening to it. Break the Cycle is much better - I'm not terribly fond of the soft direction Staind are taking with this album, but it's decent. Recommended tracks: "This Is It", "Believe"

Bump

3.0 goodivantoar | August 28th 08

Preety good, many instrument improvement esp. at opening, good vocals but sometimes song can sounds similiar like in the previous albums.
