This...this is just sad. Craig, I didn't think you could get worse. Way to prove me wrong.

Oh my God it's impressive how utterly horrible this is. Seriously. Holy. Fuck. The supergroup of all bad groups... the perfect storm... there's not enough room on this page to express how disgusting this music is. r

some really great tracks on here, some forgettable ones; however I agree with charlie15, "sex life" is awful and kept this from getting a 3.5 from me.

Inconsistent and hellaciously bland as fuck, D.R.U.G.S.' self-titled debut album seems trapped within an ocean that merely supports catchiness and only this particular characteristic. Around this time, Craig Owens' vocals have improved ever so slightly, but combining his laughable lyricism with the hit-and-miss instrumentation off this release just doesn't work as a proper fusion.

This album was awesome, but it did not age well. The songs may be catchy, but their inherent catchiness reduces their longevity a disproportionate amount. sad really

I don't know what the bigger surprise is - how good Craig Owens sounds on this, or how atrocious the lyrics & the rest of the band are.
|2.5 average||Rob Marais | February 20th 13|
This could have been so so so much better; tracks like "If You Think This Song About You, It Probably Is", "Mr Owl Ate My Metal Worm" and "My Swagger Has A First Name" demonstrate potential, and the instrumentation, on it's own, is relatively good. The album, however, is let down by poor lyrics, insipid (and unnecessary ) dream-pop [see: "I'm Here To Take To The Sky] and some pretty cringe-worthy song titles.

Sue me for being a sucker of catchy, fun music. This album is not for the serious.

I'm a big fan of Craig Owens and especially Bone Palace Ballet but this was just boring
|3.0 good||wacknizzle | January 17th 12|
Would have been so much better if the lyrics didn't make me cringe. But the music is pretty great.

Craig Owens has a controlled sound that proves his vocal strengths. He takes dominance with this project and just has a damn good time with it, and that's why this album succeeds.
|3.5 great||GreyShadow | November 20th 11|
Craig Owens' voice has went from in my opinion awesome and original, which was a very distinct high note, and was watered down. It's a shame cause I bet haters of Chiodos would have appreciated him more with this voice on a Chiodos record. Still like his previous band, Craig Owens still steals the show here. Songs are a lot less epic, but still the record is pretty catchy.
|1.0 awful||CrowsZero | June 7th 11|
one of the worst 2011 albums. these guys came from horrible bands and together they made perfect shit music.
|4.5 superb||ZackeryDaley | May 21st 11|
It is Craig Owens gold, reminiscent of the Chiodos album "Alls well that ends well". Melodic Hardcore at it's perfection. This album may not give Chiodos, Cinematic Sunrise, or any other side projects a boost, but in my opinion it defiantly stamps his own reputation into the "hardcore scene". His conviction bleeds out of every sound on this album, the only thing pushing it away from perfection is his inability to sustain screams anymore, and the thought that he has done this before, but just without the right studio equipment. I do have to say that I haven't been that interested in albums as of late, but this one has grabbed my attention and brought me back to the music world seemingly, because now many albums are coming out that catch my eye. The Tracks on this album sustain themselves, and don't sound repetitive. I especially enjoy the breakdowns done, but I think he might need to take a shot in the ego and have a back up screamer help those flow easier.

Nothing special. Nothing impressive. Not even impressively bad.
|2.0 poor||Eyaaah | March 24th 11|
Maybe one or two good songs, but the rest is pretty terrible. It was pretty boring and the track "Sex Life" gave me a headache.
|3.5 great||c0nf1n3d | February 25th 11|
The album rocks. It's definitely a nice change for Craig Owens, and the musicianship in this album is great. Some of the tracks can kind of feel repetitive, but it's still a great listen. There are heavy tracks, and lighter tracks as well. It would've been nice to hear a ballad song on this, and maybe a more relaxing song for some contrast, but other than that, this is a solid debut album from this band...and I'm very excited to hear more from them in the future.

There are some alright moments on D.R.U.G.S. debut album (catchy choruses, great drumming, good guitar riffs). The only problem is that you have to wade through a sea of poo to find them.
|2.0 poor||Chris Higgins | February 21st 11|
With some good tracks here and there, DRUGS self-titled debut album is a flawed yet entertaining listen.
|2.5 average||NightofCydonia | February 20th 11|
Not good, not bad. Its just average. Some good songs and some Sex Life. I can't help but
think that this might have made a better album for "The Used." Of course, that could just
stem from Feldman's go-to production style. *Sings Graveyard Digging, " All alone he turns
to stone while holding his breath half to death..." Oh wait, wrong lyrics.
|2.0 poor||Justin Veltman | February 20th 11|
I wanted this to be a lot better than it was. I kinda wish I would have listened to..you know, something good.
|3.0 good||Biffuh | February 19th 11|
Good. Nothing more nothing less. Has a few gems, but nothing too special.
|2.5 average||charlie15 | February 18th 11|
Some decent tracks. Overall though, instrumentals suck with most songs being generic. And 'Sex Life' ruins the entire record...
|3.5 great||lucho | February 18th 11|
The lyrics aren't neither as intricate or complex as they could be, but overall, D.R.U.G.S. ends up being a great album, thanks to the resources of a charismatic singer, and a well planned musical structure.
|2.0 poor||slaythesocialists | February 17th 11|
this album is one of the most annoying things I have ever listened to, even if I didnt have a sex life i don't give a fuck about Craig's affairs with other dudes
|3.0 good||Alexander | February 17th 11|
The hype machine that is D.R.U.G.S isn't as grand as your typical Craig Owens fanboy would seem to suggest, nor is it a total abomination. There is truth to that Craig improved his vocals quite well from his Chiodos-days (though some of the lyrics are quite cringe worthy), and Feldman did a good job giving the band a nice catchy poppy post-hardcore sound. With this said, DRUGS debut album actually manages to barely scrap by in beating the run-of-the-mill post-hardcore clones due some odd charm, charisma, and enough musical variety to differentiate the songs. Though in the end it will most likely not change your opinion about the band because of how self-absorbed they function
|2.0 poor||mcchub | February 17th 11|
really boring. vocals are average at best. music has nothing that stands out and it was overall a massive snorefest to listen too
|2.0 poor||JeffryWinkles | February 17th 11|
lol man is this sooo average it's bad... craigs voice isn't as bad, but too bad the instrumentals are boring as all hell...
|4.0 excellent||Sam Cowen | February 17th 11|
A really good album from some very talented musicians, every song is different from the furious opener If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is, to the more poppy Sex Life all the way to the heavy scream-along My Swagger Has A First Name.
