  • Summary: This is the fourth album for the Chicago-based metal band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. The group backs it up with a forceful sonic fusillade that recalls Disturbed's 2000 debut, "The Sickness," while doing away with some of the melodic niceties that crept into "Ten Thousand Fists" and 2002's "Believe," right down to Draiman's jungle animal vocals.
  2. The album features a great number of their best songs to date, a couple expected stinkers, and some expected and unexpected lyricism.
  3. While Indestructible doesn't meddle with the melodic hard-hitting Pantera-inspired formula that fueled its predecessors, the dreaded nu-metal tag that followed the band out of the turn of the century seems wholly eradicated.
  4. In failing to take up the sword as they should, therefore, they wind up sounding a little lost on Indestructible, stabbing their weapons without any reasons behind each parry, setting up vague agendas they cannot follow through on. Despite this, it’s still a reliably solid, passable hard-rock soundtrack for 2008.
  5. Problem is, much of Indestructible, banks on the same old angst-mongering that has fueled a zillion rock-radio hits in the past 10 years.
  6. Big riffs and bigger choruses here will ensure continued American radio support, but Draiman's penchant for singing like a woodland animal startled mid-coitus won't stop the sniggers. [May 2008, p.130]

    This album makes you feel the bass drum pounding into your chest and as the lyrics truly make anyone feel indestructible. This has to be my favorite album of all time. My itunes library has over 3000 listens recorded of "Indestructible". To Disturbed- great job. To potential listeners- don't deny yourself this masterpiece. Expand

    I hate that this incredible album is regarded as less of a sucess than "Asylum." I personally believe this album is much more emotive, entertaining, dark and satisfying. One of Disturbs bests. "Criminal" for instance, is an amazing track, ferocious and angry, yet also catchy and remisicent of the more groove-orientated tracks on The sickness. Love this album. Expand

    At first, Indestructible didn't really impress me. But after listening a couple of times, it's become one of my favorite hard rock albums. Even though a vast majority will tell you that the title track is the best, my personal favorite is "Divide". Definitely check this album out. Expand

    Its good...but not as exciting as their previous albums..I liked one song, which is Indestructible..and the rest was probably "eh, ok." Their metal music is truly heavy metal, but being exciting was not as I hoped it was. Expand

    This album is alright but it could have been better, but i really liked it. The album made my top 10's but Asylum is still really far ahead. My favorite song on this album is Inside the fire, the song meaning reached my inner being. One thumb up, One thumb down. Expand
