Album Review: Staind: Staind



I really want to like this album. I really do, but it has serious problems. There are times when it sounds really cool but most of the time it falls short.

The first obvious problem is that most of the songs sound incredibly similar. The sound of the album would be good, heck, great even if it were constricted to a 4 or 5 minute song, but for an entire album, it gets old quick.

The next problem is that a lot of the lyrics don't make sense. I might have forgiven the monotonous melodies had I been able to simply figure out what the heck the album was about, but I can't. The closest I got was "Wannabe" but other than that I can't figure out what the heck the album is about.

Overall "Wannabe" is the stand out track. If you are going to listen to only one song and with this album you probably are that's the one you should listen to. That or "Eyes Wide Open"
