    Papa Roach takes their sound in a surprising new direction. With excellent lyrics and sound this album is sure to satisfy. I have to admit despite the new sound the album feels very familiar, almost to the point of being unoriginal. Thankfully The Connection never takes that route. I loved every second of this album and in the end that's all that matters.

    The Connection is a stylistic leap, that shows surprising restraint, and--whisper it--maturity. [Nov 2012, p.102]

    It's the sound of a band who know their craft inside out, but who aren't afraid to grow and try something new. [29 Sep 2012, p.53]

    Papa Roach have the tools to be a damn good rock band, but they'll never be one unless they change the bloody record.
