At first I was disappointed that most of the songs weren't nu metal like their last album. However - the lighter songs grew on me quite a lot. They feel incredibly honest and while Mark's voice is usually quite similar to his half-brother Jonathan Davis, it's a lot sweeter in songs like these and fits the music very well. "Unstable" is a better nu metal song than anything from their debut, "Rip the Heart Out of Me" is decent but pretty repetitive, "Needles" is easily their heaviest song by far with Marky's vicious screams all throughout the song and "Stand Up", which features the same themes of domestic violence as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus's "Face Down" has lyrics so on-the-nose that it makes that song seem like absolute poetry.
