crap!

Oh, but you should hear Tenacious D's cover of that song, 'Chop Suey' or whatever, it's probably the only funny thing they've done. If you can find it online or whatever, it'd be worth it...

'For the longest time, I thought the song was just gibberish, but you know I wanted to see if it had a message and what the lyrics were. So Kyle and I went out and got the tab book or whatever and looked at the lyrics. And you know what? It means absolutely nothing!'

I have to say, all sell-out-idness aside, I think this band is lumped in with NuMetal and that Mall rock garbage. But I think they really have a sound of their own. I just wish somebody knew how to get it on tape..........

Kyle is Jack Black's sidekick in the D...this quote was said after they finished performance of said 'Chop Suey' song

OK

They have a 'new sound' or 'nu sound' but yes, the production is really crap. It sounds like the drummer is playing in a tin sandbox. The guy's voice is just a little too crazy-on-crack for me sir...

I hate to admit that I've actually found myself not turning this off when I hear it on nu-metal radio. However, I recognize a guilty pleasure more readily nowadays so I have to vote CRAP. Because ultimately, it is.

I remember hearing that "Toxicity" song on the radio, and thinking that it was a half-decent parody of nu-metal...and then when they were back-announced, I figured that it probably wasn't an intentional parody.

While being forced to listen to the radio today, although SOAD is crap, they are 10 million times better than anything else newer I heard on the radio. I like the video they did earlier this year that got banned from TV though.

i worked with a band earlier this year that adored this band as insisted we listen to the record as "reference point". ho hum. now i hated the way the record sounded and i didn't really care for the band but heres the deal....

after they left i found myself listening to album on my own time casually. i am positive that if guys had a different approach in the studio people would feel differently about them. the nu metal thing actually seems forced with them to me.

i cant really say i like them but i like there politics and some of the really over the top song ideas.

luke warm crap. if you catch me on the right day i would say not crap. but thats not today.

the lead singer has a decent voice when he's actually singing and not growling gibberish....

at one point, i actually liked listening to "spiders"

arials is just about the worst song ever. and for about 6 months, that was all i heard when i turned on the radio. i no longer listen to the radio. thanks, system of a down.

CRAP.

Pitchfork seems to have deemed them their pick of the nu metal litter.

That "Toxicity" song is pretty much Mogwai's "Summer" with cock instrumentation and goofy/irritating singing.

"Prison Song" is really amazing actually. And I like "Chop Suey!"... I think what endeared me to this song wasn't the song so much as that one webcam video of the two kids who head-banged to this song, and did these hilarious facial expressions during the softer more lush parts of the song.

The second half of Toxicity is really boring.

I really should give the new one and Steal This Album a listen.

I would actually go see SOAD for this, because those kids would tear the DCFC fans apart. I would pay hard-earned money to see DCFC fans shredded by nu-metal fans.
I never thought I'd recover from the trouble that Youtube put me through...

Really? Personally, I'd like to see the nu-metal jocks on the losing end of just about anything.

I can't get past the voice and I don't hear anything unique or well done but I haven't listened to a whole lot either.

Having a guitarist who expresses more facial emotion than the singer automatically puts you in Hootie and the Blowfish territory.
