  • 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. 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]
  6. 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.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 27 out of 29

    Of all of this band's albums, this one is their absolute best. Disturbed has a great sound, good lyrics, and a nice aesthetic. But in everyOf all of this band's albums, this one is their absolute best. Disturbed has a great sound, good lyrics, and a nice aesthetic. But in every album, there's always at least three songs that make me go "This isn't right... Are we suddenly listening to pop trying to be metal now?". Not this time. Only one song on this album didn't really sound good to me. But even that song was at least passable. This album just misses a perfect score because of that song. This album is exactly why disturbed remains my 2nd favorite band. 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,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

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