The hottest, freshes, catchiest nu-metal album of the early millenium
Looking back now it's hard for anyone to justify their past love of anything nu-metal, but this album was one of the gems to come from the genre.
It's got great guitar riffs which are just original enough to differentiate the band, and the touches of electronic flourish, though easy to laugh at now, really added to the flow and rythm of the album back then. However it's David Draiman's fresh vocal style of pitch-perfect and rhythmic staccato which make these guys stand out.
To be honest I love every song on here with the slight exception of the pointless cover of Shout. The album doesn't take itself too seriously, bordering almost on a glam vibe.
The album cover kicks arse and beats anything they've had since with their cute little "rag-demon" mascot. Pity their music, like their album covers, became just too try-hard to play out the gimmick.
