  1. There are some surprises on Mudvayne, like a surprisingly Slash-like guitar solo on "Closer" and the death metal intro to the Slipknot-esque "I Can't Wait," but too much of it is more of the same from the band and its genre.
  2. 50
    These guys once flailed like a future-prog version of Slipknot (whose Shawn Crahan served as executive producer on L.D. 50), but now their doomy riff-o-rama comes equipped with mellow-bellow butt-rock choruses.
  3. Bringing mellower, more melodic counterpoints to a core of nu-metal bombast makes Mudvayne’s fifth studio album at times sound clumsy.
  4. Mudvayne has by and large returned to what it does best (or at least do frequently) on its new self-titled album.

    They tried to do a summary of their whole career as mudvayne band. I can say they did an album at the same level that their previous albums.They tried to do a summary of their whole career as mudvayne band.
