Disturbed: The Sickness

Sound — 10
The sound of this album is dark, heavy and creepy. Very much like the sound of the first album which was awesome. Also they tried something new that could mostly be heard on "The Game." They tried to use digital beats which makes The Game so incredibly catchy and one of my favorites.

Lyrics — 6
I was a bit disappointed with the lyrics since I have been listening to Believe more. They aren't as "repent" and that sort of stuff. Now they're more of a standard nu-metal lyrics. "Droppin Plates" sounds like a Limp Bizkit outtake too. The lyrics are more angry now too. However, David Draiman's voice is amazing and has so many ranges that it's incredible. One second he's all mellow and then he sounds all angry and stuff in a sort of "semi-scream."

Overall Impression — 8
Believe was a bit better than this. My favorite songs are The Game, Stupify, Voices, and Meaning of Life. They also do a pretty kick-ass cover of Shout. If you are to buy this record, try to find it used. It's pretty good, but like I said, Believe was better.
