This album is not a bad listen. ‘Life On Display’ reminds me of Staind’s album ‘14 Shades Of Gray’. But then where Fred Durst is concerned, what would one expect? This album is great for it opens its 13 track listing with a gem of a song called ‘Away From Me’, that easily became a hit. Three other songs for me set this album apart from the nu-rock scene and the offering of albums daily and they were ‘Change My Mind’, ‘Spin You Around’ and ‘Freak Of The World’.
I cannot for the life of me figure out why this particular album recieved so many bad reviews. Puddle Of Mudd is a highly inventive band that does not sound the same or mundane. And each song has its own particular sound and theme. The lyrics to 12 of the 13 songs, anyone listening can at least find some common ground with the lead singer.
Give Puddle Of Mudd a try….you won’t be disappointed.
