Following up a commercial flop is an uphill struggle, but on Getting Away With Murder, Papa Roach seem to be doing everything they can to put 2002's underperforming Lovehatetragedy behind them. The opening "Blood (Empty Promises" is an anguished, dense opener that sees frontman Jacoby Shaddix revisiting old themes and reopening old wounds, but it's performed with the sort of spectacular rock dynamics that mark Papa Roach out as something more that nu-metal also-rans. Elsewhere, the likes of "Blanket of Fear" and "Be Free" find the band moving into more bleak, gothic territory with some success. Shaddix's lyrics still stumble a line between brutal emotional clarity and 6th Form poetry: "Does anyone around me feel the same?/ Put your fist up and vent your pain," he barks, balanced on the edge of self-parody, on "Take Me". Still, it's a neat novelty to find a metal vocalist that doesn't feel the need to dress their lyrics up with all manner of impenetrable psychobabble, and it works just fine on "Scars", the LP's sure-fire hit-single-in-waiting. --Louis Pattison

At first I thought this is an average album that only had one good song on the album 'Getting Away With Murder' (which sold the album to me). I was expecting songs similar to the first two albums and the new song. It took me a couple of listens to get used to this album.
This is an album completely different from their first two albums and 'Getting Away With Murder'.
Why 5 Stars?
This album is full of well written songs, every song is instantly great. Yeah sure they've had great songs('Between Angels & Insects' to name but one) that sounded great but never a great album to go with the couple of great songs they have.
This is their great album, however its not for their guitar rifts or the drum beats that made their first two albums but for Jacoby Shaddix vocals. The rifts and the beats add to Jacoby's vocals to make them even more meaningful. and never drown him out.

Every song has emotion that i've never known Papa Roach to have before, just listen to the emotion that goes through Jacoby's voice in the song 'SCARS', as he sings the chorus 'I Tear My Heart Open - I Sew Myself Shut - My Weakness Is That I Care Too Much - Our Scars Remind Us The Past Is Real -I Tear My Heart Open Just To Feel' to anyone else they may seem average but Jacoby puts real emotion into them to make them really meaningful. This deserves to be released as a single.
This album has its full of emotional songs for different feelings, 'Do or Die', 'Blood (empty promises)', 'Take Me', 'Done With You' and 'Promises' that are the real standout songs on the album.

Don't expect an album in a similar sound to 'Getting Away With Murder', it has a very different techno vibe going for it, its very different musically to every other song on the album. Its no bad thing. Its the big song to sell the album. Just don't be suprised when you buy it by the difference musically and emotionally of the whole album, from it.
A MUST BUY!

Format: Audio CD
This album has been a long time coming, as any fan will know, it was originally due out about a year ago, and then set back to March, then eventually a concrete date of August 30th, 2004.
As soon as the explosive opener 'Blood' starts, you know its Papa Roach, with Jacoby Shaddix's heartfelt "I will forgive but i wont forget/And i hope you know that you've lost my respect" being sung over soft music before the drums of Dave Buckner just before Jacoby begins the onslaught.
The rest of the album continues the trend of Papa Roach experimenting new sounds and styles which has long been their way ever since 'Potatoes for Christmas' and their other independent releases which are now long out of print and highly sought after by hardcore fans on places such as eBay.
Stand out tracks include 'Blood' the title track 'Getting away with murder', 'Not listening' addressed to "The commander in chief" in the sleeve notes. The melodic 'Take me' is a great track too.
Widely rumoured to be the next track 'Scars' showcases Papa Roach's melodic side with Jacoby stating that his weakness is he "cares to much".
Tyranny of Normality is one of the heavier track and has Jacoby speaking out against the mainstream media stating that it is the "seduction of human desire" and that if it tries to show you the truth it's a "liar", later Jacoby screams that he wants "to turn a new page!!!"
Papa Roach are proving that they are not going to take the low record sales of Lovehatetragedy lying down, but nor are they going to write Infest part II, they will continue do music they way they want to, and write the songs the want too.
From a reviewing side of things, it would be "nice" to able to say go and listen to track so and so on some album, or go and listen to another band to get a feel for this album, but that is not possible, because again Papa Roach have written a CD that is out there on its own, they have broken the mould, and I welcome it
Viva la cucaracha!

Let's face it, Infest was about as bad as nu/rap-metal pap got back before it started dying out. The second album headed in the right direction, but the songs just didn't grab you. This third album is nothing like how PR started out, and thank god. Straight ahead rock, with, get this, SINGING, and MELODY replaces angsty-teen lyrics and nu-metal riffs that will come to mind when most think "Papa roach". There's little doubt it wont sell like Infest, and this is one of the endearing qualities of this album and where papa roach are heading; even if you don't totally dig the songs here, they deserve a lot of respect for doing the opposite of selling out, when they could have simply got a guaranteed hit album with the rap/nu-metal formula.
I could name "highlight tracks", but the list would make up most of the album, so just put away your prejudice against the name on the album cover for 45 minutes, and you could be very pleasantly surprised.

I was unsure of this album before I got it. I've been a fan of Paparoach since Infest, but after love hate tradgedy,
I was unsure if Paparoach could create anything new and original. There was an interview with the band on the new album, They kept saying something on the lines of,
"we were experimenting with new sounds, which gave our music another direction",
you get the picture. Anyone who bought the last Offspring
album-Splinter, (was nothing special) will know that such claims mean one of two things in this genre. Firstly that it sounds exactly the same as every other album, or like the new blink182 album is a more artistic "grown up" direction to music.
Well Getting away with murder, is neither. Its true for a lot of the album, paparoach have found a new sound, its not grown up and "arty" it doesnt sound like their other albums, its generally quite fresh and unexpectead. However its still has the paparoach sound. Songs like Not Listening, Getting Away With Murder, Done With You, Scars, and Blanket of Fear are good old fasioned p-roach songs. But there are quite a lot of more experimental tracks on the album. Be Free, has a main guitar riff, which is more remenicent of 70's 80's rock songs. Sometimes, is an interesting acoustic styled song, with a typical p-roach chorus. While Do or Die, is a strangely uplifting song, for a paparoach album.
Paparoach manage to cross different genres while keeping to their nu-metal roots. That said Getting Away With Mruder lacks some of the awsome riffs accociated with the roach, as the bass now seems to be the front running instrument of the band.
The big question every Roach fan wants to know is, is it better than infest? Anwser, no, but its dam close!
Standout Tracks: Getting Away With Murder, Be Free, Scars, Sometimes, and Do or Die.
sorry if there's any reprinted words at the start and end of sentences, Amazon's acting all wierd.
