Without being to critical, MY OPPINION on the new Papa Roach album is that of a serious let down. Ive always thought Papa Roach could aspire to better things than that of which they have achieved, this album is no exception. Thier career is one of serious highs and lows, constantly altering thier style from one album to the next to try and find some kind of middle ground in which to satisfy the mainstream media/critics and on the other hand satisfy the true core fans.
The feeling of this album is one of a very tired band struggling for inspiration and invigorating ideas, scraping the bottom of the barrel hoping for some kind of musical direction. Its a drab, lifeless, thankless album which i feel has only futher dented the reputation of an already flatlining band.
Some bands need to know when to stop and at this rate Papa Roach might wish to embrace the idea of "Quit while you are ahead".
If you wish to hear Papa Roach in all the glory I remember and thank them for, try "Infest", "Paramour Sessions" and "Metamorphosis".
