  • Summary: Chicago's hard rock arena-headliners return with another album of heavy metal hits that recall early Metallica and Iron Maiden while maintaining their trademark dark sound.

  1. What really sets Disturbed apart from other 21st century metal acts is their ability to consistently re-package and resell their sound in a way that avoids redundancy.
  2. There are enough brains and brawn to make this an "Asylum" any head-banger would be crazy to avoid.
  3. Asylum is undoubtedly one of the strongest albums in Disturbed's storied career.
  4. Asylum won't set the world alight, but it's certainly not monotonous enough to send anyone to the madhouse.
  5. Global warming! Nazis! Werewolves! Disturbed pack their fifth disc Asylum with so much scary stuff it should come with a night-light.
  6. Early metal bands drew inspiration from the netherworld, but on the fifth album from Chicago hard-rock band Disturbed, all the demons live within.

    If you never liked them, this album probably won't change your mind. But, for anyone already "down with the sickness" Asylum is quite possibly their best record to date. [21 Aug 2010, p.50]

    A fantastic hard rock album with only 1 weak track, and even that is still listenable.

I was not disapointed in it. The only one song I felt wasn't strong but the others were awesome. You will not be disapointed if you get it. It is a must for any Disturbed fans and a good bet to get for Non-Disturbed fans who love rock and metal. Expand

These songs (particularly "Animal" and "Warrior") are filled with power and energy that will get anyone's blood flowing. Furthermore, these lyrics contain a depth and meaning behind them, a refreshing relief from most pop songs. Expand

I picked this album up day 1 and was looking really forward to it, but was skeptical because "another way to die" is not their best work by a long shot. The album is better than I expected but out of their 5 studio albums, I rate this one 4 out of 5. This album is not bad in any way, just not as memorable as others. All opinions are different so I'll show my order of favorite albums.
