    Emo angst ridden shite. Cheer up kids.

    I really liked LD 50, their previous album. Maybe that's why I hated this vomitous, tuneless follow-up so much: rather than build on its predecessor's intriguing sound, they've simply made an album that sounds like bad Nothingface covers performed by a stoned cat in a trash can. A few terse riffs escape unscathed.

    Dreadful. Fake, poorly-realised lyrical angst set over horribly derivative riffs. L.D.50 was a pretty good album compared to the rest of the nu-metal scene at the time, featuring some very imaginative bass riffs and a superb production, but Mudvayne evidently ran out of ideas at some point, because this is just pants. And badly-produced pants, at that. One to avoid.

    The End is rather ordinary--severe, belligerent riffs and vocals that sound as though singer Chud gargles molten lava. [#12, p.148]
  2. While the group attacks things with great velocity and singer Chud shreds his larynx at regular intervals, the always difficult follow-up album features actual melodies and mature textures that make the band's eventual transformation into a progressive rock band nearly inevitable.
