Album Review

Limp Bizkit made their reputation through hard work, touring the hell out of their debut album Three Dollar Bill Y'All, and thereby elevating themselves to the popularity status of their similarly rap-inflected, alt-metal mentors, Korn. With their second album, Significant Other, they come close to reaching Korn's artistic level; at the very least, it's considerably more ambitious and multi-dimensional than Three Dollar Bill. Limp Bizkit, of course, hasn't abandoned their testosterone-overloaded signature sound — they've just built around it. There are flourishes of neo-psychedelia on pummeling metal numbers and there are swirls of strings, even crooning, at the most unexpected background. All of it simply enhances the force of their rap-metal attack, which can get a little tedious if it's unadorned. Not so coincidentally, the enlargened sonic palette also serves as emotional coloring for Fred Durst's lyrics. He broke up with his longtime girlfriend — his Significant Other, if you will — during the writing of the album, and his anguish is apparent throughout the record, as almost every song is infused with the guilt, anger, and regret that churned up in the wake of separation. That, however, gives the impression that this is an alt-metal Blood on the Tracks. It's not. Nevertheless, it does have more emotional weight than Three Dollar Bill, along with more effective, adventurous music. More importantly, it balances these new concerns with trace elements of their juvenile humor along with the overpowering aggro rap-metal that is their stock in trade. Which makes it a rare artistic leap forward that will still please audiences that just want more of the same. [Significant Other, Rovi

Give them Some Credit...

Arcai in. You got to admit, they've had some stinkers, but they still put in a good effort. This was a more smoothed-out record than Three Dollar Bill Y'all$, because they didn't rely on purely metal-styled riffs. There was a lot of hip-hop and rap influence on this album, which Limp Bizkit better fits into. Here's that NewOld style of reviewing: Good: Good energy Distorted and electrifying guitar Nice hip-hop styled sound Good melodies Bad: Stupid rhymes Talks about parties too much To smooth on some songs Great songs: Nookie, Break Stuff*, Re-Arranged, Nobody Like You, Don't Go Off Wandering, N 2 Gether Now, Show Me What You Got Good songs: Just Like This, I'm Broke, , 9 Teen 90 Nine, Trust?, Outro Bad songs: Intro, No Sex, A Lesson Learned, Mind of Les I give Limp Bizkit's second album four and a half stars. Arcai out. *Break Stuff is a great song, but sounds horrible, I mean HORRIBLE, clean

Very good album

I'd say when I was growing up listening to this album everyone thought it was the best out. So I think that sums that up. Great album you can listen to from beginning to end.

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

The rap-metal outfit Limp Bizkit was formed in Florida in 1994 by vocalist Fred Durst and his friend, bassist Sam Rivers. Rivers' cousin John Otto soon joined on drums, and guitarist Wes Borland completed the original foursome (later supplemented by DJ Lethal). After Korn played the Jacksonville area in 1995, bassist Fieldy got several tattoos from Durst (a tattoo artist) and the two became friends. The next time Korn were in the area, they picked up Limp Bizkit's demo tape and were so impressed...
