  1. Metamorphosis, which follows 2006's commercially stillborn "The Paramour Sessions," is the most polished and wide-ranging of Papa Roach's six releases.
  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. With one bright, surprising exception, the songs here either make a terrible impression or they make none at all.

    It's not as good as infest, but it is still better than their last album. I actually find myself listening to this more as it gets older.

Just sound like most of boring rock band's album that could be found through the 2000s or 2010s. Definitively, it is the worst album of Papa Roach Expand
