Hard to believe that back then someone wrote about this album "nothing can improve this pathetic nu-metal drivel" in some canadian magazine, I guess the world wasn't ready for this yet, now this album is like a wine that has gotten even better with age.
I don't think this album should be called nu-metal, or compared to Slipknot or Korn. I've got nothing against nu-metal, Slipknot or Korn, I like all of it, but this is a completely different dynamic. This is in its own realm.
This album is a total drug trip! Too bad they stopped using... The maybe immature unstructured songs is what is making this album so great, it's like you experience the trip with them. I can understand that some people don't like this album cause it's just too chaotic for them (they need structure, like Zach126). I don't think they will ever make an album like this again. But the latest album sounds a bit more promising.
