Sound — 9
Disturbed has an excellent harsh, edgy sound for the type of music they play. Powerful chords and riffs draw you into the music and really make you want to play the song yourself. However, after a time some songs can get repetitive and boring. Disturbed's studio really paid off with their third offering.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics are pretty good for the most part. However, there are a few parts I don't like, such as the very beginning of Deify. While the lyrics and singing could be better, they are certainly not a reason to not purchase 10,000 Fists.
Overall Impression — 9
This is great overall album. There is not one bad song on the CD. If you have not picked it up yet, I would strongly recommend doing so. With songs such as Stricken and Guarded, the singles, and other great songs such as Deify and I'm Alive, this CD will quickly become one of your favorite CD's.
