Album Review

Discovering new limits to the nu metal scene by approaching mainstream measures and using avowed pop rhythms, Alien Ant Farm go beyond the widespread rampaging guitar strain. The band's kinship with Papa Roach proved to be crucial, for it was through Roach's logo New Noize that the LA quartet managed to deliver their disc on the Dreamworks label. Anthology surfaced as the band's first full-length on a major label with the production credits of Jay Baumgardner, who previously worked with groups such as Orgy and Coal Chamber. The album showcases the band's alternate dexterity, not only due to frontman Dryden Mitchell's revealing vocals, but also by virtue of their deliverance of full-blooded melodies. If "Courage," the album's opening track, provides a hint of their crossbreed intentions, "Movies" confirms Alien's unusual dispositions, surfacing as original discharges of alternative pop/rock. Anthology emphasizes the Californians intrepid enthusiasm, even including a version of a Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," once more disclosing the team's hybrid intents.

No need to hide the woman and children

This cd is not parental advisory as iTunes suggests, but an album with minimal swearing of any kind. Now that I got that out of the way, I can get to praising this wonderful cd. Now not everyone likes AAF alternative sound and I don't know why. Most people like Movies because of its upbeatness and Smooth Criminal for its craziness. But the other songs you need to sit back and take in. I enjoy the lyrical pictures made in each song. I would have to say Stranded is my personal fav for its metaphor of sealife to his life. I enjoyed this cd greatly but you need to have a liking for the singer's sound and their style to enjoy the whole thing.

why does this have a parental advisory?

this cd bairly swears at all. i can only think of one song. and even then it's not even to bad of a curse. this cd rocks. it's definitley an impressive debut. buy it now.

Formed: 1995 in Riverside, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The SoCal alt-metal foursome Alien Ant Farm formed in 1996 with the raging singer/songwriter Dryden Mitchell, guitarist Terry Corso, bassist Tye Zamora, and drummer Mike Cosgrove. All were bored with their day jobs and sought something else to break them from corporate norms. Music allowed them to freely express themselves, and a friendship was born. They independently released their quirky debut, Greatest Hits, toward the end of the '90s and soon enough noise surrounded the band. It won the award...
