A strong line up including the biggest name in metal of the time, Primitive goes there, does it, but somehow fails to deliver the goods.
The riffs are hard and Sepultura-esque, and Max Cavalera still has the driving angst and genuine passion of the classic Seps days. Yet throughout there seems to be a desire to experiment, diversify, and try new styles, probably borne out of a fear that the old formula isn't quite working now.
It's a damn shame, because the result is an over-length record that doesn't make a mark, has a lot of indistinct tracks and is a bit forgettable.
Probably there are those who disagree, but I'm hoping something new comes into the equation to liven Soulfly up to something like the expectations we had when Sepultura split.

Holy s**t!! From "Back to the Primtive" the album is an explosion of passion and energy. Phenomenal tribal drumming and heavy as f**k guitars combined with that voice of Max's. I saw them live at Ozzfest 2001 in the UK and they blew me away. Intense rhythms and detuned guitars bring out the best from the grandfather of metal - he brought the music with him from Sepultura and has kept improving. The respect he has is shown by the other guys who sing on the CD. Tom Araya from Slayer, Chino Moreno from Deftones, Grady Avenall from Will Haven and of course, contributing on one of the best tracks ever - Corey Taylor from Slipknot. If you like Sepultura, Slipknot or any loud s**t with class rhythms then check out Soulfly!!

A pretty decent follow up album, which benefits from better production and more ideas, yet isn't quite in the same league as 'Roots' or 'Chaos AD'. As well as 'Back to the primitive', the standout tracks are those with guest collaborators, like 'Jumpthaf**kup' (with Corey from Slipknot), 'Pain' (my favourite, featuring Chino Moreno from the Deftones and Grady from Will Haven) and, surprisingly, 'Son Song' (which features Sean Lennon). Max has tried experimenting with a few different genres, as well, like hardcore hip-hop, raggae and even soulful dancey vocals (on the song 'Flyhigh', which features guest female vocalist). These changes will probably annoy 'old-school' Sepultura fans but they are worthwhile because they make the album more varied and inventive. As I've said this isn't quite classic status, it is too reliant on guest musicians and the tracks without special guests pale in comparison but it's still a worthwhile buy and far superior to the overrated and contrived debut disc

A pretty decent follow up album, although nothing as groundbreaking as 'Roots' or 'Chaos AD'. The standout tracks are the tracks with guest collaborators, like 'Jump the fuck up' (with Corey from Slipknot), 'Pain' (my favourite, featuring Chino Moreno and Grady from Will Haven) and, surprisingly 'Son Song' (which features Sean Lennon). Max has also tried a lot of new styles on this album like raggae, hardcore hip-hop and one song ('flyhigh') even has a soulful female song chorus. These changes are going to annoy a lot of 'old-school' Sepultura fans, but in my opinion they make the album even more inventive and diverse. As I've said, this album isn't classic status. It's too reliant on guest musicians, and the tracks without the star guests seem boring and pale in comparison. Still, it's a great improvement on the overrated and contrived debut disc

Soulfly's second album Primitive, released back in 2000 during the Nu Metal era saw the band continue the formula established by their debut self titled album from 1998 and also Sepultura's Roots album from 1996 to an extent.

The sound mixes tribal percussion and additional instruments in with a mixture of heavy groove metal riffs and bouncy Nu Metal riffs. The production, handled by Toby Wright & Max Cavalera is very much inspired by the style used by Ross Robinson on the band's debut and several other notable Nu Metal efforts.

The album is absolutely full of guest appearances; from non-famous Brazilian musicians to Slipknot's, Slayer's and Deftones' singers as well as John Lennon's son Sean Lennon among others.

The lyrics are a mixture between old Sepultura (and on one song, Slayer!) lyrics reworked, sections in Portuguese, Quasi-spiritual sections and Max's usual style of violent simplistic lyrics.

Some people may see this as the best Soulfly album, bringing together everything they like about the band, others may think it is a cluttered mess of different ideas and guest appearances that lacks any real cohesion for most of the time and that just rehashes old ideas for the rest of the time.

Overall, Primitive is very much an album of its time. Whether you think that means that it has horribly dated or that it is a classic is very much up to your personal opinion. The band certainly seem to play enough of it live to suggest many fans still love it.

For me, the album has some worthy moments (`The Prophet,' and `Pain,' are highlights) but is largely forgettable and too dated. I loved the album when it was brand new, but now very rarely find myself listening to it at all. The album is certainly worth a few listens, but Soulfly have definitely made better albums.
