Album Review

Pro-Social Content

“Down Another Day” repeats, “I will not let you down.” A man in love wants to “Build a Bridge.” The artist works through trials with angelic assistance (“Drown”). “Let Me Down” lauds faithfulness, honesty and prayer. However …

Objectionable Content

That track and others include the s-word. Angry f-words are also common expletives. The intro “Re-Entry” establishes a bleak tone, calling life “the black hole of … existence.” Futility and loneliness weigh down the mopey “Underneath the Gun,” “Lonely World” and “Behind Blue Eyes.” “Head for the Barricade” encourages listeners to act out their hostility. An air of sexual menace and contempt befouls “Eat You Alive” and “Creamer (Radio Is Dead).” The latter includes violent threats. Relentlessly profane, “Gimme the Mic” roars about the state of rap and metal music. Crudities, drug/alcohol references, racial slurs and runaway egos show up on “Phenomenon” and “Red Light – Green Light” (with Snoop Dogg). “Lonely World” recalls illicit adolescent rendezvous (“I loved sneaking out when my mom was asleep/With my gothic girlfriend making love in the creek”).

Summary Advisory

Venomous rage. Obscenities. Often predatory sexuality. Despite a few tracks that might suggest a change of heart, the results don’t vary nearly enough from previous Limp Bizkit discs to warrant a listen.
