Excellent album, but not Limp Bizkit's best
on 30 March 2001
Well, its certainly one of the best albums that I've ever heard, but it's not the best, not even the best Bizkit album. That title goes to Significant Other. However, that's taking nothing away from Chocolate Starfish.
There is an excellent array of songs present on the album, notable efforts include Rollin' (both versions), My Generation, Take A Look Around, Hot Dog, Livin' It Up and My Way.
However, I do feel that the guitar talents of Wes Borland and Sam Rivers has been slighty underused, especially in a couple of songs, My Way being one of them.
To all the Bizkit fans who are truly hardcore, backoff with criticising the teeny boppers. The album may be a bit commercialised in comparison to Significant Other, but it was the featuring of Rollin' as The Undertaker's music in WWF that brought Bizkit to the forefront of the mainstream, now people who had never heard of Limp Bizkit are going to their concerts...they're in for a shock when they see the Mosh Pit and hear the heavier songs from past albums.
The special CD is an excellent feature, with 4 great videos (Faith, Re-Arranged, N2Gether Now and Nookie) and 3 excellent tracks (Faith, Crushed and Counterfeit)
Fred, Wes, Sam, Lethal and John, keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to hearing the next album.
