  • 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]

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

    Limp Bizkit were barely tolerable when they were new. Fred Durst is a brainless hack who lucked into a musical career. Hopefully this is the Limp Bizkit were barely tolerable when they were new. Fred Durst is a brainless hack who lucked into a musical career. Hopefully this is the death knell for Angry White Boy rock, nu metal, rap rock, or however you want to describe it. This is the epitomy of soulless, whining narcissicm. Good job Fred, now go get in line to participate in Surreal Life. Expand
