Album Review

After toning down the Slipknot/Mushroomhead theatrics for 2005's Lost and Found, Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray recorded an album with modern metal (almost) "supergroup" Hellyeah. The latter outfit's predilection for basic, rib-cracking hard rock pops up occasionally throughout 2008's The New Game like a gin blossom, interrupting sonic blasts of math-tinged nu metal with furious Motörhead-meets-Alice in Chains mayhem. The problem is, Mudvayne's own predilection for predictable loud/soft/loud set pieces, forgettable melodies, and over-reliance on words like "sorrow," "rage," "abused," "disease," "nightmares," and "beatings" keeps things from ever leaving the tarmac. With a winning opener (the familiar but nonetheless brutal "Fish Out of Water") and a handful of other keepers (including "A New Game" and the surprisingly subtle "Never Enough"), fans looking for a repeat of L.D. 50, Beginning of All Things to End, End of All Things to Come, and Lost and Found will be more than pleased, but those looking for actual growth would be better off cleaning out their refrigerators.

Just Awesome

People have said that Mudvayne have gone 'soft' since their release of LD50 back in 2001, I agree in some way with this statement with some of their songs on albums are a lot more soft than others but I like that, it gives you a balance and just shows that Mudvayne isnt just about the heavy riffs and drum beats, they are about their music. The New Game has blown me away. Just an awesome album, still the same Mudvayne who created that awesome sound but with a new edge. They are by far the best metal band I have heard and have continued to create the sound that has got them where they are now. It's not like you buy the album for one or two hits that have come out on the TV and are the best songs out ... with this album you listen to it all, all of the tracks are just AMAZING! Well worth it, a definate 5/5.

great album

this is the first album i have bought from this band, its great music great sound and if you like a "heavier" sound then you will love this!
