Pretty good, but somehow the same.
on 1 May 2002
The problem with nu metal is the same problem I found with the grunge craze of the nineties. Too much of a good thing pretty soon turns out bad.
That's not to say drowning pool is bad, far from it. Catchy riffs, decent lyrics, good melodies, but I can't help thinking that I've heard it all before, only better ("Papa Roach" or "One minute Silence" say).
A couple of years ago this would have been mould breaking, but now with so many nu metal bands creeping out of the woodwork, I find myself longing for something a little different.
