Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Disturbed are back, and they’re on top form.

    There's just not much here to keep the group's detractors from bringing out their pitchforks, and over time, staying the course may leave fewer and fewer townsfolk to protect them.

    While the album also has its fair share of bona fide, looks-like-we-just-broke-the-bottom-of-the-barrel moments ("Fire It Up" instantly comes to mind here), Disturbed manage to do just enough to keep metal purists from dispensing with them completely.

    With Immortalized, Disturbed don’t even try.

    Comparing that album with any previous, i can say, that immortalized sounds more clearly, thanx to mr. Draiman for perfect animal voice!

    After years of waiting for Disturbed to return, I'm appalled at the negative response of critics. "Disturbed didn't even try", they've said.After years of waiting for Disturbed to return, I'm appalled at the negative response of critics. "Disturbed didn't even try", they've said. "Didn't appeal to core audience"? "No diversity"?

    Songs like The Vengeful One, Who, Never Wrong, and Open your eyes are rock powerhouses that are true to the core of Disturbed while pushing the envelope at the same time. Every time Draiman says 'I'm the hand of God' it sends goosebumps down my spine.

    Not only are Disturbed true to their fans, but they also did an EXTREMELY good job at surprising us, and disproving every nay-sayer that has ever said all Disturbed songs sound the same. Fire it up: a modern sweet-leaf masterpiece. Sound of Silence: a cover of a classic song that does the original justice and shows us a side to Draiman's voice that we have never heard before. Save our last goodbye: a song about losing a friend to cancer that will bring tears to your eye. You're mine: a love song.

    I love Disturbed. I have for almost a decade now. But I never, EVER expected anything nearly as good as this album. This is every Disturbed fan's fantasy.

    Friends of mine that absolutely HATED Disturbed have told me that they love this album. The lyrics carry power, loss, inspiration.

    People will always bash Disturbed, because we live in a world that embraces conformity and monotony. When you have a band that preaches to break free of those restraints, that makes a lot of the sheep feel uncomfortable. It speaks so fiercely and fearlessly to empower you, that the people who profit from the illness of this world see it as a threat.

    I guess in the end... and no matter how hard people try to tear this band down, it will only emerge stronger.

    So all of you angry, trolling, miserable keyboard warriors who bash Disturbed and cry wolf time and time again deserve a thank you. Thank your for every dark day, every jab, every single lie and attempt to slow us down. It's cute to see you try so hard. You have made us powerful beyond belief.

There are enjoyable moments to be found on here, as well as cringe-worthy moments, but that’s essentially every Disturbed album that’s ever been released. It’s infectious, catchy, obnoxious, predictable, and it’s going to be loved and hated by everyone who knows the band’s ‘iconic’ brand of musical talent and tomfoolery. Disturbed is back, and it seems as though nothing has changed. Expand

They have attemptedThe album has it's satisfyingly heavy tracks, but overall this isn't the album Disturbed needed after a five year hiatus. They have attempted to diversify their sound, but in doing so they forgot that we still wanted hard rock. A good amount of the songs sound more like power metal or something FFDP would make. Some might say that's a good thing, but FFDP is an entirely different kind of sound and Disturbed shouldn't be going down the route of softening their music to attract more listeners. Expand
