This CD is different then 10,000 Fists. When I played it the first time there were only 4 songs that really grabbed me. I listened it to it a second time and there were 9 songs that got me. The 3rd time listening to it and all 12 were major hits. It doesn't have the same sound as 10,000 and reminds me more of their album Believe, BUT with the polish, finesse, and blow you socks off vocals/lyrics and guitar/bass work of 10,000 Fists. I have been listening to it constantly now since I got it yesterday (07.09.08) and the title track Indestructible is my fav so far (its playing as I write this) but its a very hard choice to pick as 'best' as ALL the songs are major hits. I would expect no less from Disturbed.
They are one of the best bands that have ever existed and they attract fans of all ages -- trust me on this one. If you like rock/metal whatever you can't help but love this band.
I am a bass player and in a band so perhaps I have an edge when I listen to this. Their mixing of time sigs and layouts are simply beyond great. And the vocals are at the top in skill and talent. It is all put together flawlessly. Its pure nirvana for the ears....
It might take a couple of listens through to really warm up to this CD as it is different then their last one (I mean how can anyone surpass 10,000 Fists?) but it is every bit on the level of 10,000 Fists. I have also found that songs you have to listen to a couple of times to decide if you like, turn out to be the best in the long run.
You will not be disappointed when you buy this CD but don't let first impressions count if it is less then blown away the first time. The more you listen the more you will like. The more you listen the more layers you discover in each song, the more intense they become. The energy and work this band puts into their music is just incredible.Read full review
