  • Summary: The Chicago alt-metal band follows their 2 million-selling debut, 'The Sickness,' with this sophomore effort, working once again with producer Johnny Z.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. Frontman David Draiman shows that he is an ample singer, refraining from the quirky vocal squallings that graced Sickness for a more straight-ahead croon.
  2. On Believe, Disturbed takes the sort of jump that their heroes in Soundgarden and Pantera made after their respective breakthrough records.
  3. One of the best hard rock albums of 2002.
  4. The problem is that singer David Draiman is more from the Chester Bennington school of overemoting than the James Hetfield college of thoughtful growls.
  5. 60
    It improves on the debut, slightly. [#10, p.114]
  6. At last, new metal has its answer to Depeche Mode's Black Celebration.
  7. 40
    Believe sounds so dry and crisp it could have been recorded on a Dell laptop. [Oct 2002, p.113]

    This album was written in memory of David Draiman's (vocals) grandfather. The entire album contains very deep lyrics and is a little less heavy than Disturbed's other albums, but fantastic nonetheless. I personally recommend "Rise," "Prayer," and "Believe" as my favorite songs off of this album. Expand

    "Believe" is aCD that gets better with each listen, so be careful not to misjudge it. When I first heard it, every track sounded the same. Now I am able to see the diversity in the album. My favorite tracks are "Prayer", "Believe", "Intoxication", and "Bound". There are no bad tracks. Great album that any hard rock fan will enjoy. Expand

    well-structured and heavy
    sometimes it looks like a religious band, may looks like a ****
    Draiman is a very talentous singer
