Mushroomhead is a nu-metal band mixed with lots of other genres and if you have never heard Mushroomhead before you might want to get XIII because its a bit less heavy and more alternative but if you are a Mushroomhead fan get this cd it is Mushroomhead's best work. Since Mushroomhead self produced every cd before this one they put a bunch of different songs from the old albums and put them on this album with better quality because it was produced by Universal.

The lyrics are amazing and their definately not forced. Since theirs 2 lead singers (Jmann and Jeffery Nothing) they blend very well together and the singing blends with the music very well except for in "The New Cult King" the music just dosent seem like it fits in it.
Overall Impression — 10
This is an amazing CD and it's marked down in most stores so your getting more for your money's worth. The highlights of this album are definately Solitare Unraveling, Filthy Hands, Empty Spaces (Pink Floyd remake), 43 and Born Of Desire. If I lost this CD I would definately buy it again.
