  • 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 CD draws from each of their previous records and builds upon them. The guitar solos are the greatest addition. A must-have for Disturbed fans.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I agree with a lot of other reviewers; Just listening it to it once doesn't do it justice. It took me the second time around to really like this album, though I do have two problems. First of all, the title track ("Indestructible", the song, not the album) is a little inconsistent. When I first heard it, it totally blew me away, and it continued to blow me for quite some time. However, it grew a bit old, and now, I get that adrenaline rush only sometimes, as opposed to all the time. Second, I don't like the choppiness of the pre-chorus in "The Night", it disturbs the melodic flow of the song, but great album nonetheless. Expand

    Oh boy, more generic mainstream rock, how fun. This gives metal a bad name, if you can even call it metal.
