The energy that spills forth from these grooves hails both the positive power of loud guitars and gorges itself on the general insanity of life, but nails it all home with a knowing melodic sense of the anthemic and a musical complexity which elevates the entire album beyond mere thrash and burn histrionics.
EposiviaMar 11, 2005This album is the best of Papa Roach until now, I don't know why you people don't like it, but than please don't listen it if you get disappointed, the half of the people who gave it a low point comes with bullshit, why should you compare? It's about the feeling etc...… Expand
DaraghL.Sep 17, 2007Very different from infest, but still a masterpiece.
Jul 29, 2011It is pretty interesting that critics are generally satisfied with this album whereas fans are definitely divided. I belong to lovehatetragedy's fans - for me it's the best Papa Roach album. 'Decompression period', 'Life is a bullet', 'Black clouds' are powerful songs, 'She loves me not' won't get out of my head easily, 'M-80' makes me want to jump, scream, lets me feel the music inside me. Amazing album, but it seems that Papa Roach stopped to release albums as great as this one.… Collapse
vjvjhjgkiAug 26, 2002Good riffs and lyrics, although sounds too similar to Infest.
NoahS.Jan 27, 2005I'm not sure why people are comparing this album to RATM. The Infest album was a Rap/Metal outfit, this album is not at all. It has a completely different style, more like a Lit/Nirvana/Staind hybrid than any rap-rock business. There is one rap verse in the whole album, and it is the low point of the worst song on the album. Other than that song, the single (She Loves Me Not) I thought this was a very entertaining mood record.… Expand
GregJul 26, 2003How in the hell did this shit band get a 74?! They are not even close to the level of RATM (who got only four more points for Renegades). Papa Roach's LoveHateTragedy is complete garbage, and if you compare it to the absolute zenith of the genre, RATM's self-titled, this album is laughable. BTW, I'm sick of hearing their crap on the Pepsi commercials.… Expand
