  • Summary: The critics were not kind to this follow-up to 'Chocolate Starfish...,' which sees the band with a new guitarist (who won the slot in a competition held at various Guitar Centers!) replacing the departed Wes Borland.

    A far more rounded proposition than 2000's water-treading Chocolate Starfish. [Dec 2003, p.132]
  2. With the Bizkit's usual guitar-heavy thrash still in place, songs such as "Creamer (Radio Is Dead)" and "Lonely World" get by on Linkin Park-style electronic textures, stutter-step rhythms and catchy, cathartic choruses.

    The songs without hip-hop accents or full-on rage merely seem dreary and gray or derivative of vintage alt bands. [10 Oct 2003, p.121]
  4. Since the music has no melody, hooks, or energy, all attention is focused on the clown jumping up and down and screaming in front, and long before the record is over, you're left wondering, how the hell did he ever get to put this mess out?
  5. No, Fred, the results don't vary. The results are consistent throughout your new album--consistently crappy.
  6. Eventually, 'Results May Vary' could become a fascinating document - a frightening insight into the vacuous state of 21st century culture.

    Forgettable to anybody with a soul. [Jan 2004, p.103]

It has more mellow tracks. Basically, whatever mood you are in, hard head bangin', rappish, slow, sad, and a beat mood this cd won't let you down. At least 2 songs are for a diffren mood. And the lyrics aren't that bad, very catchy. I must say the only songs I'm not crazy about are 'Behind blue eyes', only cause it's a remake of a classic, and 'Red light green light', which the main rap song on the whole cd. It is a little monotonous, but whatever. And the fact they have short good music song sequences after songs, for people who hate the cd, don't even know these songs exists. It's like a treat for putting through the worst songs on the cd, coincidentally 'Behind Blue Eyes' and 'Red light green light'. But all in all, the cd is awesome. A cd I have yet to get tored of in 5 1/2 months. Expand

Contrary to all the bad publicity about this album, it is without doubt one We came across this album by accident over the last few months. Contrary to all the bad publicity about this album, it is without doubt one of the most important albums since 1993. The production and ideas within this album are quite unique.The last albums to contain such artistry was Songs of Distant Earth by Mike Oldfield and Talk by Yes. Its quite disgraceful on some of the voting, obviously from people who have no clue about music production. We have analysed some reviews by these individuals on other albums and its quite sad and obvious that these critics are like everything within the industry- to be aiding and abetting the demise of talent within the music industry. We suggest that those critics should become independent from the Record Companies. Its ok monopolizing CD Sales etc but to monopolise what talent is, is detrimental to the industry. Expand

    It's not their best work. The only issues I have with it are Wes Borland not present and the fact that it was mostly ballad-heavy. It's not their best work. The only issues I have with it are Wes Borland not present and the fact that it was mostly ballad-heavy. Otherwise, it's really not a bad CD. I think the reason people shit all over it is because they hate Fred Durst. I like their first 2 CD's better. And I did like "Chocolate Starfish". But this CD does get better with each listen. To those who still have it, Check it out again. It's really a decent CD. Expand

    For a title "Results May Vary" it is surprising how one sided the reviews have been. Limp Bizkit has always carried great energy in theirFor a title "Results May Vary" it is surprising how one sided the reviews have been. Limp Bizkit has always carried great energy in their music and were even one of the most respected metal bands of the 90's; however, to many they lost what made what made them so unique in the early naughties. This is clearly evident in this "album." I quoted album because I'm not quite sure it's the right word to describe this collection of noise. Toxic sounds or mathematically formulated wavelengths designed kill brain cells are better ways of describing this cornucopia of audio pain. Hardcore Limp Bizkit fans may enjoy this, but even they will probably find most of the tacks generic and boring. Limp Bizkit's unique blend of metal, rap, funk and alt metal is not present in this "album." Instead we are treated with nu metal that comes across as blander than a week old bowl of oatmeal. While listening to this I felt like I was being eaten alive by an all encompassing creature designed by the most cookie cutter music producers of L.A. I think Limp Bizkit needs some sort of re-entry in sound because whatever they have been doing the past decade has not been working. The whole time I was listening to this I was wishing it was almost over. If I hear any of these "tracks" in my car it is proof that radio is dead. I rather drown in white noise that is most of Nickelback's hits than listen to this. Expand
