Metamorphosis - Papa Roach

Mixed or average reviews - based on 5 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. With one bright, surprising exception, the songs here either make a terrible impression or they make none at all.
  2. Metamorphosis has a dire determination to its purported good times, its riffs grinding instead of greasy, its rhythms clenched where they should be loose.
  3. The problem is that Papa Roach don't rise far enough above the radio-rocking competition--it's hard to remember the band's identity at this point.
  4. There’s nowt nu about this nu metal.
  5. Metamorphosis, which follows 2006's commercially stillborn "The Paramour Sessions," is the most polished and wide-ranging of Papa Roach's six releases.

    Really not one of their best. The song that KINDA liked was Lifeline, but this album is just not one of their best ones. One thumb down, and the other thumb right in the middle.. Full Review »

    Disappointing. I was hoping this would have songs that went to the point of "Scars" or "Last Resort", but the only song on here that's even "so-so" is "Lifeline". Full Review »

    3 songs that I like, the rest... I can tolerate, but it's not their best. I wish Papa Roach was back to lovehatetragedy, which was my favourite album (and the most coherent as well). Full Review »
