5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply the best album ever, 4 Feb 2007
If LoveHateTragedy marked the low point for this band, this album marks the turning and high point for them. I quite simply can't get enough of this album, and it is even better than its phenominal follow up "The Paramour Sessions."

I have a 3cd stereo, and it is as simple as 2 of the spaces are taken up by this album and The Paramour sessions 24/7, 365, and the 3rd space is for whatever tickles my fancy at the time.

This album doesn't have one bad song at all. It shows Papa Roach evolving from the nu-metal act they once were to a legitimate hard rock band, and putting together some great songs including the beautiful "Scars" and the amazing title track "Getting Away With Murder" which I still rate as the best song on earth.

I cannot rate this highly enough. It is as simple as this. It is now the 4th of february 2007. This cd has not been out of my cd player since the day it came out. Buy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars And people wonder why they didn't tell people they had released this..., 4 Feb 2007
This album was utter garbage. I bought it on other people's reviews thinking that with Wes Borland back in the band Limp may have rediscovered some of the old magic that made them THE band on the nu-metal movement.

How wrong I was.

There is no singing at all on the album (at least on the parts I bothered to listened to), and it sounds like they tried to copy Rage Against The Machine and got it horribly wrong. The only song worth listening to is The Truth, which sounds funky, but you might aswell just download that.

The fact is what ruins the album is Fred Durst. The actual instrumentals sound great, but when Fred opens his mouth it is just garbage. It doesn't even sound like he is putting the effort in that he used to on the other albums, which may or may not be a sign of his own personal acceptance (which he didn't signal openly at the time for whatever reason) that he knew the band was a lost cause.

Only get this if you are a huge Limp Bizkit fan and want the album for collectors sake. I bought this album with hope and was sorely disappointed. Save yourself that same disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growing and still the best band on the planet, 10 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Paramour Sessions (Audio CD)
This album is as good, maybe better than their last album. The only thing that stops me rating it as better is my total loyalty to the last one because I loved it so much. Papa Roach grow musically with each album, and if you are a long time fan like myself you will have basically seen the band grow up over the past years. Songs dedicated to being where they are now and the dark parts of their past (Jacoby especially) basically force it on you, they are back and they are not the same.

The major surprise for me in this album is a song with orchestral instruments in (Roses On My Grave), which was written in dedication to Howard William Roach, aka 'Papa' Roach who passed away this year.

Other than that it seems the transition from nu-metallers to straight rockers seems to be complete. LoveHateTragedy signalled a low point for the band as nu-metal was in its deathrows, and along came Getting Away With Murder which was a huge step to where they are now.

I cannot recommend this album enough. There is not a bad song on this album, and even some songs I was dubious about grew on me. I know one of the other reviewers said that when he/she got to Time Is Running Out/What Would You Do, he/she felt like skipping back to the beginning of the CD. I too felt this way to start with, but eventually the songs grow on you, and you have to go passed these songs to get to the great My Heart Is A Fist and Roses On My Grave. Put these with To Be Loved, Crash, The World Around You, Forever and I Devise My Own Demise and you have an album worth the money even if the rest of the album was filler, which it isn't.

Probably the best album to be released this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't even have to own it, 14 Feb 2006
This review is from: Family Guy - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
I've seen a lot of the episodes from this already, and it just gets better and better. Family Guy set the new standards for comedy in the last 3 seasons and the film, simply by not being afraid to push the envelope and be offensive and controversial. This time, they push it even firther. Add that to complete randomness at times, and how the characters have progressed and Family Guy itself, never mind just this box set, is the best thing on TV at the moment, if not ever. I own all the rest, and I have been waiting what seems like decades for the 4th Season to finally get here on DVD. It's definitely getting added to the collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big dissapointment, 11 Jan 2006
Bugs and errors. Lots and lots of them. That's what I notice most about this game. For a start, the rosters are up to date, until you go on season mode, where the old rosters are in place. Also, I have seen none of the 'character specific storylines' that were talked about, as I played with HBK and Orton (who was on the RAW roster) and both had the same storyline.
When it comes to bugs, being able to take down the manager in a last man standing match and him being counted out for the win, the fact that some coding must have gone wrong somewhere because no matter how you move the left analogue stick your tag partner will not attack the illegal man and always the legal man (this makes tag matches very hard because your pin is always being broken), being unable to lock onto the illegal man at the ropes to knock him off the ring apron to illeviate the affore mentioned situation, being half way through the floor during submission moves, unable to interrupt pinfalls in the Elimination Chamber (which makes getting the elimination chamber trophy very hard), shadows that hang at chest height in season mode, reversing a running strike attempt and watching as your opponent floats along on one foot the remainder of the distance.
Also there is no real progression in the game. The only notable new things are the ability to irish whip your opponents into objects hard, being able to drag your opponent about by the head and smack them into things (which has been done at the expense of being able to irish whip your opponent into the ring steps) and the buried alive match (which isn't really buried alive, it's a casket match where when the match is one a cut scene shows a digger throwing dirt onto the casket to make a grave). The best new part is the momentum bar. This stops you stocking up immense amounts of finshers, and also stops someone hitting you with a finisher when they done very little in the match. Also a finisher with momentum in your favour does extra damage (which is fair).
'Old' annoyances still remain aswell, such as not being able to leave the ring during certain matches (submission and royal rumble, where the ring out bar leaves you no chance to fight back at times), you can only go on the Elimination Chamber at new years revolution, certain moves aren't available in certain matches or in mathces with more than 2 characters involved (eg smacking your opponets head off the stairs).
It is still a decentish game underneath, but to be honest, you might aswell stick with SD Vs RAW 2005 and save your money.
