On the other hand, from the tracks I've heard so far, there's nothing too special about this album. "Another Way to Die" (below) comes off very preachy and lyrically blunt, and sounds like every song on Ten Thousand Fists, while Asylum sounds more like something off The Sickness but still doesn't do anything to really keep my attention. Maybe my musical tastes are changing, maybe Disturbed is just staying the same too much.
One positive that I've heard, especially considering that I'll likely be seeing them live when the Uproar festival comes to town on October 4th, is that their live show has gotten even better on this tour. Utilizing massive LCD screens and more pyrotechnics than a monster truck rally, early reviews of Disturbed's live show are very impressive. So I'm definitely looking forward to the live performance, if not the CD.
This is the video for "Another Way to Die," which despite sharp visuals and high production value, adds little to a song that is, in my opinion, rather boring to begin with:
Do you agree with my take on Disturbed? Think I'm an elitist dick that can't tell a good song when he hears one? Let me know in the comments.
