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. [A "clean" version, sans profanity, was also released.]

Where's the innovation?

Let me start off by saying I love muydvayne (LD50 Is by far my favorite album of all time). I started to get a little afraid of where mudvayne was going after Lost and Found, and boy was I right. There's absolutly no innovation on this album; No more amazingly diverse songs with complex lyrics that take time to digest and understand, No more innovation that set mudvayne apart from the rest of the crowd, No more complicated bass lines, No more bold guitar riffs, Nothing. Chad's vocals are also a little bit worn, and I hate to say it because I love the guy, but the lyrics are sort of corny. There's no body to them, no complicated lyrics like Prod or Severed, no emotion like Cradle or Trapped in the wake of a dream. Everything about this album disapointed me.


This Mudvayne album is great!! Mudvayne never dissapoints!

Mudvayne brings the new game...

I was not surprised at the effort put forth by the guys from Mudvayne, every track is gr8 and there are definitely some must haves on the album especially Do What You Do and Dull Boy... This delux version is for die hards only as most of the extra tracks are simply demos of earlier work and a couple live and acoustic performances, but the cover of King of Pain is almost enough to justify the purchase. Overall great album, just a hair under their previous album, Lost and Found. Buy It, and enjoy the noise!!!!!!
