Album Review

Filter's 1995 debut Short Bus broke through at the exact moment when Nine Inch Nails soundalikes began dominating the modern rock charts. Filter had more credit to their sound than any of their peers — their leader Richard Patrick had played in the touring incarnation of NIN. Nevertheless, many critics had written the band off as one-hit wonders with the crossover single "Hey Man, Nice Shot" being their one shot at glory. Since it took them four years to deliver the followup Title of Record, it could appear to the casual observer that the delay was proof positive that the band was a flash in the pan, but the album itself proves them wrong. If anything, it's a stronger album than its predecessor, with more sonic details and stronger songwriting. Title of Record is still firmly within the industrial-metal tradition — parts of it sound like it could have been on Short Bus, actually — but it's surprising how often Patrick bends the rules. There's trippy neo-psychedelic pop vocals that close "Captain Bligh," and even when the music rages (which it does throughout the record), there are subtle differences in tension and dynamics that keep it fresh and engaging throughout. It is true that Filter sound a little out of place within the modern rock world of 1999, where the aggro-metal is rooted in hip-hop not industrial, but that doesn't mean that Title of Record isn't a strong album on its own merits, according to the rules of its genre.

Customer Reviews

as underrated as it gets

this album and this group were so over-looked during the late 90's when they were hammering out great music. Richard Patrick never got his due and if you listen to this album very loudly, you'll understand why. "Welcome to the Fold" will make you want to run through a wall. "The Skinny" is an awesome slowdown and would be all over the radio if it came down today. actually maybe it's a good thing that it's not. overall a great album by a great band. somehow these guys haven't got the props they deserve.

Awesome!

This album is super diverse! They don't just paint the same picture 11 times they change it up. Way to go FILTER! Way to be real artists! I'm not sure there are any swear words on this album, other than "Welcome to the Fold," but that's iTunes for ya allways screwing it it! Buy this now!

Take a Picture

This is such an incredible song! It's so serene and Patrick's vocals are incredible. I love this song.
