Biography

Staind dove into bleaker recesses than ever before and surfaced with their heaviest and most hypnotic album to date, STAIND, their self-titled, seventh studio album.
The multi-platinum Massachusetts hard rock outfit—Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and Johnny "Old School" April—pushed itself to the very brink. There was struggle and strife, but, as a result, Staind ... Read more in Amazon's Staind Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

In grand rock & roll tradition, Staind now have their grey album--14 Shades of Grey--just as the Beatles had the white album and Metallica the black album. While lumped in with the often indistinguishable nu-metal crowd, Staind stand out, thanks in part to memorable ballads, such as the pained and beautiful "It's Been a While" and "Epiphany" from the quartet's 2001 breakthrough Break the Cycle. Their latest offering represents a natural progression; realising the commercial potential of the poignant but heavy rock ballad, they've penned a slew of them. The light and cheery "How About You" is radio-ready, while the layered, string-backed "So Far Away", an honest and grateful musing on success, is another get-out-the lighters showcase for singer Aaron Lewis. Lewis's beautiful ode for his baby, "Zoe Jane", a tribute to late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley ("Layne", which intentionally and effectively cops Alice's signature sound) and the grandiose thank-you note "Intro" are stronger, overtly introspective entries in Lewis' sometimes mushy, sometimes touching album diary. --Katherine Turman

Format: Audio CD
'14 shades of grey' - as the title suggests, life for Aaron Lewis may be getting less bleak. For those unfamiliar with Staind, many of the bands lyrics bemoan the troubled life of thier front man. Dysfunction saw him yelling 'look at me, I'm just an addict' and 'such a cancer on the face of everything thats beautiful, I wish it would just go'. These are not the words of a man who is completely content. Their 3rd outing saw Aaron offering more insight into his and societies problems.
However, with the birth of his daughter perhaps comes, if not a rebirth, certainly a remodelling of Aaron's self. He still bangs on about the evils of Television and its brainwashing powers in 'Fray' - as he did in Break the Cycle's 'Suffer'. Yet, he does not get lost in depression and those annoying electonically enhanced screams, a technique that I've heard described as 'burping down the mic'. Thankfully Aaron and Staind have discovered that melody can be equally as expressive and powerful as the tuned down distorted guitars that they are used to. The result is a sound that varies from track to track. All staind's previous albums were just practice for 14 Shades. Their sound is much more mature and does not sound tired or, to borrow what is usually an ignorant phrase, 'samey'.
Highlight tracks include,
'Fray' - particularly sombre and expressive
'Layne'- betrays their Seattle influences.Tribute to the late Alice in Chains sluge slingers. (I urge you to check out 'DIRT')
'Blow Away'-excellent build up to this song. Worthy of any foo fighters song.
As Nu-Metal seems to be dying a slow and prolonged death it is refreshing to see bands rise out of the confines of the genre.

If like me, break the Cycle is in your top 5 albums of all time, then u will be disapointed when u hear this.
I dont care that it is alot more commercial, and that the heavy songs have gone....at the end of the day a good song is a good song.....and this album doesnt have many....
Dont get me wrong, despite this Staind are still my fave band at the mo (closely followed by killswitch Engage) ....as I saw them live last year and the were unbelievable.... but the song writting just doesnt seem to be there on this album,,,neither of the singles have anything to offer, and to be honest i have only 4 songs on the cd i really like,,,
I just really hope they come thru this and are still together to produce another epic.....
On the plus side.....it seems Limp Bizkit have been looking up to their friends when writting their latest.... never really been a fan, but they have grown up and their latest really really is the business......and the last song could have been a Staind song...

This is a lot mellower than the first two albums (Tormented and Dysfunction) about the same as Break The Cycle but the lyrical content is deffinetly a lot happier and the track "so far away" is deffinetly one of the best they've written and the guitar riffs on the whole of 14 Shades Of Grey will blow you away, I was really impressed and it was worth waiting for highly recomended!!!!

Having loved Break the Cycle I then went and purchased Dysfunction, which was unimpressive. I therefore had some hesitancy in buying this new offering from Staind, but thank god that i did. If like me you favourite tracks on the previous album where Fade, Its been a while, Epiphany, Outsiade and the like then you will love this. It has 14 songs of the same ilk. To give you an idea of the quality the latest single Price to Pay is one of the weaker tracks on this album.
If you like Stainds previous work or Theory of a Deadman and Saliva then you cannot afford to be with out this.
The extra DVD is not all that special, alot of stuff from their earlier days including a ten pin bowling session with limp bizket (i wonder if they could do this now without getting recognised) but i dont think it is worth any extra outlay.

fill you up
and then everything else is just in the middle - average as your going to get from staind- this band is awesome from tormented (bloddy hell!!) to break the cycle 14 shade sis a good album but is easily the worse from the kings of nu grunge-
chapter v there 5th installment isnt far away and im already 100 percent sure it will be alot better ive heard the nu single and the snippet on staind.com its raw again!!! if ur a staind head get this album for ur collction if not dont bother really- it is a good chill out album tho not as good as cycle in any department but still- all in all good album with two (brilliant!) songs only 2 out of 14 not good but its worth it if ur a staind head!

staind finally manage to 'break the cycle' leaving the contents of their last album in pieces, 14 shades of grey is a must buy for all staind or even rock fans.once again the boys have come up with the goods. leaving behind the slow moving ballads such as 'epiphany' an 'its been a while' and replacing them with brilliant new songs such as 'price to play' and the brilliance that is 'tonight'. also a nice touch on the album is a tribute to the late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley entitled 'layne'.the album is the best i ever bought it hasn't come out of my cd player for a week.
