Sound — 9
Quite possibly the best album out by Disturbed so far. An amazing piece of musical talent blended togeether to continue the story started by Ten Thousand Fists. The sound of this album for most of the songs have an evil minor tone to them and helps us remember why they are called Disturbed. One of the best things about this album is that it grows on you and you can develop a very deep respect for what Disturbed has accomplished for themselves. The sound can be constructive giving the singer plenty of room to work arund and on to themain melodies of the songs. The best song sound wise is The Night.
Lyrics — 9
Lyrically this album interested me becauseit is open for opinoin and can convey many messages other then just one. There were a lot of thoughts on lifes many problems and what people do or have done to make life worse. For instandce the song Divide focuses on having to run away from the law and it is about what happens when you get into serious trouble. There are a lot of things to think about when you listen to this album. The lyrics also represent a struggle to obtain freedom in our life. Very moving set of lyrics on this album, and the best song lyrically is Haunted.
Overall Impression — 9
Disturbed sticks out in my mind because they are so hard to classify as a specific genre, which makes their music so much more intriguing. Some would say that Disturbed is an Alternative band but I am leaning toward heavy metal, and there is a substantial difference. This album, I believe closes the case. Most of the songs on the album are heavy metal songs and can easily be noted so. Great album overall and I love Disturbed's singer, he is good, very good. This album could be the pinnacle of the band, best song overall is The Curse.
