"'I know! instead of making a half decent album, lets rehash the songs from our last CD, and put loadsa rude words in so we look hard. it'll make millions, i tell you!'"

"This really is turning into a joke now. Do you know WHY albums make it to No.1 in the UK? 95% of the time, it's because they are 1) crap, 2) well marketed to the target audience. this is no exception"

"Kids, Lostprophets are not 'one of the greatest British bands of the last decade' (see Stampin' Ground, Pitchshifter etc for good british bands). They are just another nu-metal band. get over it"

"What happened? After the superb Science and Make Yourself, comes this dull, sugar-laden-for-the-masses crap. Shame"

"MM seems to be more concerned these days with being a 'role model' for the desolate goth wannabes, than actually making good music anymore"

"OK, lets get one thing straight here: this is NOT punk rock. This is everything punk rebelled against. This, like modern day Limp Bizkit, is rock music for people who don't actually like rock music"

"Eee, what a terrible place this world is. Yet more whiny, watered down imitations of actual decent bands. If you wanna hear what Staind WISH they were, check out 'Dirt' by Alice in Chains"
Hybrid Theory

"I remember someone describing LP as 'Savage Garden with a distortion pedal'. Nuff said. I hear there's a 'Tribute to LP' album as well, which is probably worth it for the comedy value alone"

"Another prime example of fag end nu-metal. Hey kids, it's ok to think your life is sh*t and that everyone hates you, coz the guy on Kerrang TV from P-Roach can get away with singing about it"

"Oh dear, oh dear. It's not wise for your music to eerily reflect that of Blink 182, not when you consider how crap Blink are in the 1st place. What was Kerry King thinking being in that video..."

"You TOO can get 5 mins of fame! No talent required! 1) get a singer & bassist who act like assholes for the camera 2) cover an old song so you get on MTV 3) rerelease 1st single to cash in on Step 2)"

"Amusing attitudes, shame they lack the music to back them up. Oh yeah, there are actually some REAL rock bands from Scandinavia you know (Backyard Babies, Hellacopters, Hanoi Rocks etc)"

"I actually like Nirvana alot.It's just they're an image thing nowadays.I shake my head whenever i see a kid with that dumb 'I Hate Myself And I Want To Die' tee.Cheer up, life ain't THAT bad y'know"

"I'm gonna pick on Adema here, but there's plenty more whiny nu-metal types around that sound, oooh, 98% the same, wouldn't you agree? This is still disturbingly lame though."

"Someone once described this as 'classic rock at it's best'. i laughed so much i thought my pants would never dry. They'd probably sound like Papa Roach if the singer rapped, hahaha"
