Filter have a habit of producing a handful of good catchy tracks and then filling out the rest of the album with songs that don't really measure up. This album is no exception - there are some really rocking tunes but they share the cd with other tracks which just sound 'samey'. Not a bad album, but could be better with a little more effort.

Having just bought this album and already having their last album, I was very pleased with it. The songs have great guitar riffs and the soon to be released track "Where do we go from here" was execellent. All the songs had gritty power to them. I can't wait for future releases from such a talented back as Filter.

Filter has been kicking around for a while now and I have to say none of their previous albums prepared me for this. With a massive epic feel about the whole album it has just the right amount of heavy guitar and mixes with the strong lyrics from start to the end this album is just one colossal achievement.
Although it has a same feel on each track it is quite simply like a long story told in 12 chapters and your bound to have your own favourite but your absolute favourite has to be the whole thing, it flows perfectly into each track and there is no repetition in content. "You Walk Away" and "American Cliché" settle you straight into the album before "Where Do We Go From Here" blows you away and I'm sure left the band with that exact question. The answer is not the usual one; it is the contrasting "Columind" which is heavier and much darker with a much stronger guitar basis showing the boundaries of the album.
On a large part the album is full of sound and has a prominently strong bass but tends more towards the slower and softer sound while still giving it a rough edge. Aside from "Where Do We..." the other single material is "The Only Way (Is The Wrong Way)" which is not too dissimilar from "Take A Picture". The album continues to alternate between heavier assaults and soft relapses before finishing on the unusual "The 4th". Altogether the album produces a massive sound of an epic, more like a motion picture soundtrack, but the whole thing as one is an outstanding success, it shows much diversity that the band has never truly utilized and this is shown on the powerful and probably best track "God Damn Me" varying between soft acoustic and heavy chorus' leading into a heavier bridge all the while with remarkable vocals from Richard Patrick.
Stand out tracks are: "American Cliché", "Where Do We Go From Here", "The Only Way (Is The Wrong Way)", "So I Quit", "God Damn Me" and "It Can Never Be The Same".

It's been nearly 3 years since filter released a record and with the amount of work that's gone into their latest offering, "The Amalgamut", it's plain to see why. Filter have released 3 albums since their conception some 8 or 9 years ago and with each album they've shown more confidence and musical progression than many artists in their field. This album not only shows their energy and aggressive passion but it also contains the more melodic moments that nearly all metal bands of this generation fail to produce. From the albums start with "You Walk Away" the memories of 3 years ago come pouring out once more from the band that screams more emotion than any band has done since the mid nineties, it's an energetic start to the album and a good benchmark too as the music is generally speaking a damn site heavier than their previous offerings. As we progress through the album, stand out tracks such as "The Missing", "God Damn Me" and the first single from the album, "Where do we go from here" flaunt their melodic talent which was prominent on their previous work such with tracks like "Take A Picture", though as I've said before, the general feel of the album is a lot more heavier with songs like "American Cliché", "Columbind" and the mental sound of "So I Quit" keeping very much alive their heavy aggression fuelled alter ego. Just promise yourself that on the 30th of July you dig deep and purchase this album, from die hard filter fan to general metal music lover, disappointment will not be a word used in your describing this gem of an album.

filter bloke ex nine inch nails and stuff who cares?
look at this album on its own merits!
and there are plenty of those the vocal performance for me is the stand out as this is i feel the best that richard patrick has sounded his voice soars and roars in equal measures and the music is very slick and exceptionally varied in style and tempo and thankfully is very rarely dull
they manage to mix industrial metal with big stadium rock melodies and hooks that keep you humming them for days
but on the downside the lyrics are truly terrible and sound like they have been written using a rhyming dictionary
and the music suffers because it has lost some of its bite and some of the individuality that set filter apart and they have started to sound like any other faceless american band that wants to moan about the world
ultimately disappointing but has a couple of face ripping tunes that just about keep it afloat but i would suggest starting somewhere else as this is trying to please everyone and has spread itself too thin

ok so i had been waiting for this album for a long time, after hearing "Title Of Record" a few years ago, i never really thought much of it, but it gradually grew on me, and became one of my favourite albums, with catchy riffs and excellent lyrics
...compared to that this record doesnt come close. It's scratchy, despite their best efforts, after "Where Do We Go From Here" and its catchy chorus, it never really seems to improve. It's not that this album is particularly bad, it just doesnt seem to have the impact of the past two. In my opinion "The 4th" is a complete waste of time and shouldnt have been added to the album, 8 minutes long, quiet whispering and deadly quiet music. not whats expected of an industrial band like filter. Perhaps, they tried to become more commercial with this album, it is not similar to anything else ive heard, but it just doesnt match its predecesors.
If you want a good album by "Title Of Record" or "Short Bus" you will enjoy them much more than this.
