    I found most things FIlter did after 'Title of record' to be utter garbage. I've heard a few songs from this album and I think it is a massive return to form. Especially loving 'Nothing in my hands' as it invokes that early 90's industrial rock sound from the midwest like Gravity Kills, early NIN,Sister Machine Gun,Stabbing Westward etc... Hanging out with Trent again has obviously rubbed off on Richard in a good way :)

    It's a proper Filter come back album. Great record from start to finish. I was really surprised and impressed by the way it sounds, by the way it is produced and mixed. Richard Patrick did it right! Nice album, man! Big and pleasant surprise after disappointing Sister Machine Gun come back ep.

    The new album on first listen didnt catch my ear - is a bit rough round the edges - but has got much better on more listens (a bit like Deftones 'Gore'). For the first time in a while i think they actually have successfully added a bit more substance rather than the big sleek hooky anthems that they usually shoot for (the polish they usually apply made them a bit homogenous at times). Nothing In My Hands also has the same kind of melody thing near the end as the Title of Record stuff, and that can only be a good thing. I agree on the NIN influence - there is a big "Broken" kinda vibe on some of them, especially with the guitars

    Since my fav. band is NINE INCH FUCKING NAILS!!! If Filter's sound is too nine inch nails-ish, then I must say Richard Patrick is doing something really good. Because "Crazy Eyes" sounds great to me, best work since a long time ago...

    Hm, I think Crazy Eyes requires some deeper consideration than some people are giving it. Obviously, it's Filter and I love it, but I feel like it'll take a while to get really comfortable with it - not that that's the point, of course. It's not supposed to be puppies and rainbows. I mean, I'm on my 4th or 5th listen through today, and it still feels strange to me. I love Mother E, but I'm with Zach216 - the lesser the NIN influence in general, the better. Also, everyone arguing about which album is the best - there is no right answer. But if there were, it would be The Amalgamut ;)

    Can't say I like "Crazy Eyes" at all... If you look Richard Patrick has been reconnecting with his old buddy Reznor & I personally hate Nine Inch Nails. Feels like some of these songs have that kind of influence which is kind of disappointing to me.

    I think "Crazy Eyes" is their best album in a long time. I liked a lot of tracks off their previous two, but this one just feels more cohesive. It's definitely heavy and angry. Probably my 3rd favorite after "Title of Record" and "The Amalgamut".

    The new album is solid. For me, track 2 (Nothing in My Hands) is likely the best-for some reason it reminds me a bit of the song Evil Eye by Billy Idol (which is an awesome song). Track 4 is cool too; it's as industrial of a song as I've heard from Filter. Track 10 (Your Bullets) sounds a bit like their older song Clouds, which I always thought was one of their better songs. Those 3 would probably be my favorites from this album after the first few listens.
