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.

from day one its been the "Same Ol'" greatness

i have been a fan of mudvayne since they were welcomed to the world of metal, even before they won the first mtv2 award for dig, and i can honestly say that this CD is a solid buy and one of their best thank you mudvayne, thank you for always "doing what you do" but its "never enough" we the fans demand more

the first to write for the best band Ever

this is a compilation of the beginning of all things to come (thier 1st album) and Lost and Found ( 4th album). These guys are so freakin' underrated and this album is great because they get back to thier roots and are heavy but not scream-o, what rock should be.

Good but definitely not the best

This is a way better album than lost and found, but it lacks the creativity of the first 3 albums. Ive been a fan of mudvayne from the beginning, and there are some songs on here that still pack the old mudvayne punch. (fish out of water, the hate in me, dull boy, a new game) but some just dont do it for me at all (never enough, we the people)

Heavy metal quartet Mudvayne formed in Peoria, IL, in 1996, its members adopting the unusual pseudonyms sPaG (M. McDonough) (drums), Gurrg (G. Tribbett) (guitar), and Kud (Chad Gray) (vocals). The group's original bassist was replaced after two years by Ryknow (Ryan Martinie). During their development, the bandmembers began the practice of applying bizarre makeup. After self-releasing their first album, Kill, I Oughta, they were signed by Epic Records and recorded their major-label debut, L.D. 50,...
