    This album is terribad. The fact that people enjoy this kind of music is really something i can't understand. I don't know if you're into someone repeating the exact same line (and usually a stupid and annoying one as well) for 3 entire minutes (actlikeyouactlikeyouactlikeyouactlikeyouactlikeyouaclikeyouactlikeyouknow) or not, but assure you, if a decent CD had a problem and startedThis album is terribad.

    The tunes are okay, the lyrics are terrible. I can see why some people would like this music, but it personally isn't for me. The album lacks emotional connection with the listener, which in my opinion, is the one thing that creates a good album. None of the songs create a consistent mood within the album, and this works with some albums, but not in this case. I have a feeling that NeroThe tunes are okay, the lyrics are terrible.

    '80s synthpop pandering aside, Welcome Reality is a beautifully realized vision of an album whose pomp and bombast will appeal to those looking for pop that goes beyond dancing.

    Welcome Reality pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind.

    Had Nero not loitered on their cozy euphoric plateau, Welcome Reality may have given those Tron: Legacy co-conspirators a good fight.
