iTunes Editors’ Notes

Disturbed are a reliable group who over five albums have found their groove in all the darkest places. Holocaust tale “Never Again” sounds like a championship fighter fighting his way from the corner of the ring to center stage. David Draiman sings in a husky growl that still delivers melody and clarity to the anguish and general rage behind the lyrics. “The Animal” throws an extra swing into its backbeat. Guitarist Dan Donegan can twist a riff with the best of them. “Another Way to Die” makes global warning sound even more foreboding. The cover of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” titled “ISHFWILF” sounds like an odd fit, but it works surprisingly well as Draiman leans into the melody with all the urgency he can muster. From the gentle opening instrumental, “Remnants,” the one-two punch of “Asylum” and “The Infection” through to the pumping power-chords of “Innocence,” Disturbed never run out of ways to deliver the knockout punch. The Deluxe Version features several great additions. “Leave It Alone” is a clutch rocker and the live versions of “Down With the Sickness” and “Stricken” are tight and energized.

Customer Reviews

Incredible album but not Disturbed

Breakdown:
Remnants(5/5)- Amazing instrumental intro, sets the tone for the album, great lead into Asylum.
Asylum(5/5)- Rightfully the album’s title song, very “Disturbed” and catchy, great background vocals.
The Infection(5/5)-One of the best songs on the album, powerful chorus, incredible solo.
Warrior(4/5)- Amazing chorus but equally disappointing verse, fast and aggressive, terrible bridge.
Another Way to Die(4/5)-Solid song, a bit preachy at the cost of lyrical elegance, great segmented intro.
Never Again(4/5)- Very aggressive and powerful, contrived verse lyrics, great chorus.
The Animal(5/5)- Also one of the best songs on the album, exemplifies the ‘new Disturbed element’.
Crucified(4/5)- Solid song, ill-placed bridge, the ‘slow song’ (if the album has one at all).
Serpentine(4/5)- Another solid song, weak chorus (vocals sound strangely nasally), well placed bridge.
My Child(3/5)- Contrived verse lyrics, ‘poppy’ pre-chorus, interesting chorus.
Sacrifice(5/5)- Very powerful and methodical song.
Innocence(4/5)- Also preachy at the cost of lyrical elegance (even though I agree with what is being preached), strong melody, tempo, and bridge.
ISHFWILF(?/5)- Don’t ask, don’t tell…

Asylum is an incredible hard rock album however when compared to Disturbed’s potential, it is more aptly described as a “4/5 good”. The public’s opinion of this album will be very dependent on their perspective of lyrics and rhyming schemes. If you are a fan of complex rhyming patterns, strict syllable tempo, and flowing lyrics then some parts of this album will sound like nails on a chock board (e.g. Warrior’s and Never Again’s verse, My Child). This is most likely a result of lead singer David Draiman intently writing less cryptically which is a commendable albeit difficult task.

This album has added a new element to the Disturbed repertoire of sounds, which I like to describe as a slower and more powerful feel (e.g. The Infection, Sacrifice). Guitarist and producer Dan Donegan’s extensive use of electronics has given the album a “dark spacey” overtone most noticeable in Remnants and The Animal. The new sound and tone introduced in Asylum has given Disturbed a perfect balance of natural evolution without complete alienation. Asylum is arguably their best produced/mixed album to date (partly due to technology and budget improvements) and the music is as good as ever. No matter what type of Disturbed fan you are, you are guaranteed to enjoy a majority of the album, if not the entirety.

Disturbed

I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR. I feel like I'm trapped in an ASYLUM being CRUCIFIED while THE ANIMAL bit at my heels as I'm being SACRAFICED. That is, before the REMNANTS of the day wore down and I finally got it. I will tell you that I will never LEAVE IT ALONE. This is a great album by Disturbed that takes you down a SERPENTINE path with the many twists and turns that each song has until you are at the end. The INFECTION that is Disturbed is coming warning you of ANOTHER WAY TO DIE. Everone in Disturbed has proven themself as a WARRIOR that uses music as their weapon. Disturbed will NEVER AGAIN be summed up as a common rock band and I will show this album to MY CHILD and watch as his INNOCENCE is stolen away as he learns the truth of this world. Disturbed forever.

Excellent Album!

Heavy metal band Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends Dan Donegan (guitar), Mike Wengren (drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up with singer David Draiman around 1997. Draiman had grown up in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boarding schools in his adolescence. His anger found an outlet in the thrashing sound of Disturbed, and the band built up a following on Chicago's...
