Limp Bizkit Biography - Limp Bizkit Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

One Day As A Lion is the creation of musical comrades Zack De La Rocha & Jon Theodore. This is music about space – the space between friends and collaborators where ideas form; the space in a song where the tension builds waiting for the next wave of sound; the space in the corners of the recording studio (Sinatra’s old room at Ocean Way) where the sound gathers to fade and die. One Day As A Lion worked hard to capture that space on tape, unadulterated, unmolested, from heart to hand to skins to mics to tape to speaker to ear. The result, someone said, sounds like Led Zep meets Dr. Dre.After almost a decade of speculative anticipation on the part of his fans, Rage Against the Machine’s Zach de la Rocha finally returns to the studio, with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. It’s been a long wait, but if anything, the machine’s sway has only grown more insidious, and de la Rocha rises to meet it as if he hadn’t missed a beat. RATM fans will find all the familiar sonic and lyrical calling cards here, but One Day as a Lion is a mimeograph of neither contributor’s flagship band. ”If You Fear Dying” and opener ”Wild International” highlight this five-song, 20-minute set. Sharing nearly synchronized leading riffs, the two songs also take similar liberties with religious taboo: ”I target more heads than a priest on Ash Wednesday” (”If You Fear Dying”); ”I’m like a nail stuck in the wrist of their Christmas” (”Wild International”). In ”Ocean View”–a heart-breaking, impressionist portrayal of the PATRIOT Act’s capacity for enabling new twists on the old story of racial profiling–de la Rocha’s wailing chorus glides atop a merciless cascade of thunderous drums. For those who follow either of these guys, everything here merits sustained attention. More generally, for those who like their protest music hard, loud, and in small doses, One Day as a Lion is king for a day, at least. –Jason Kirk

  • I was amazed to hear the story behind this album. First of all, there is no Wes Borland on guitar. The small piece of talent that had been part of the band, is now gone. Limp Bizkit went on a nation-wide talent search for a new guitarist. They then settled on a guitarist name Mike Smith from a band called Snot.

    They recorded an album, then scrapped it. They recorded another album, then scrapped it again. They came up with great innovative ear catching album titles, such as – Bipolar and Panty Sniffer, before they finally decided on a very solid and truthful title for this absolutely horrible album – Results May Vary.

    Fred Durst is one of the worst vocalists in rock music today, right up there with Kid Rock; but that is not all that this album suffers from. Without Wes Borland, Fred Durst is forced to provide all of the direction and personality for Limp Bizkit, in which he fails miserably. This album has no new ideas or material. They are simply recycling the same junk from their multi-platinum selling Significant Other.

    Fred nearly plagiarizes the Beastie Boys song Pass The Mic on Gimme the Mic, rhyming y’all with y’all. As if the album couldn’t get any worse, along comes track 15 with a cover of The Who’s – Behind Blue Eyes; confirming once again that Fred Durst cannot sing to save his life; butchering a classic song in the process. As if he couldn’t dishonor the song even more, they misspelled Pete Townshend’s name in the credits.

    This album has no melody, hooks, or energy. All it has is Fred Durst dominating the mic with his talentless self. I just can’t believe a record label ever put this garbage out to begin with. Maybe, if we’re lucky, one good thing can come of this album. No more Limp Bizkit albums.

  • When Limp Bizkit first started, their rapcore-like music blew me away. I immediately ran out and grabbed their CD “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all” without even thinking twice. They continued to go on until they released a second CD, “Significant Other”. This CD was good but was nothing compared to their first. I hesitated before picking this one up, but eventually did. When they produced their third CD “Choclate Starfish and hotdog flavored water” all I said was “What the **** is this?” The title sucked and the music sucked even more! Now Limp Bizkit has released yet another CD with plenty of sucking going on. All the songs sound the same and include horrible singing and beats that just repeat over and over. If I wanted music like that, I’d beat on a pan and have my dog howl out-of-tune notes. Limp Bizkit has turned out to be a freakin’ disease that can’t be killed and won’t stop until everyone’s mind is screwed over by their horribly pathetic music. Everyone should stay away from the CD unless you are some ultra-hardcore Limp Bizkit fan..If you are, then all I have to say is “I’m sorry for you”

  • Does anybody else notice that Fred Durst can not sing without some sort of effect? I can’t wait for a year or two when people will ask, “Who’s Limp Bizkit”?

  • Not since Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” has an album put me into such a trance. Everything musical about this CD is perfect; from Fred Durst’s vocal delivery to the guitarist’s stellar riffs, it’s impossible to hate “Results May Vary,” Limp Bizkit’s most significantly amazing masterpiece yet.I may be going out on a limb here, but Fred Durst’s singing will probably make you want to burn all your Frank Sinatra albums. You want quality singing? Look no further than “Results May Vary.” As far as the lyrics go, Fred’s songwriting could give Bob Dylan a run for his money. The songs are among the most socially conscious I’ve ever heard in my life. Durst is truly the heir to Marvin Gaye’s throne. Amazing. The instrumentals here are probably the most complex I’ve ever heard in my life. The guitar riffs would make Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix blush if they were still alive to hear them. I’m glad Wes Borland left because he was the only one in the band who had no talent. This new guy can whale!This is one of the best albums of the year. Heck, it’s one of the best albums of the new millenium! I’d buy a million copies if I could afford it! I don’t think there’s been such a splendid display of amazing talent since Ludacris blew us all away with “Word Of Mouf.” Bravo.One more thing: if you believed a word of my review, throw yourself into a well and take this album with you.

  • This C.D. really deserves three or three and a half stars, but I gave it four because there are too many unfair one star reviews. It is, in all honesty, not nearly as bad as people are saying. It’s not great, so it doesn’t deserve five stars; but it really doesn’t deserve one, either. It has it’s high and low lights, which even out into a pretty decent album. Given the hatred that has developed towards Limp Bizkit over the past couple of years, it’s not surprising that this C.D. isn’t getting great reviews. After you filter out all of the completely unfair and bias reviews from people who most likely haven’t even heard the album, you realize that most of the reviews are saying that this album is a step forward from their “Chocolate Starfish” album.
    Musically, Limp Bizkit stay in about the same place as their last album, but lyrically, I’m inclined to agree that this is better (i.e. no excessive swearing and fewer childish rhymes). Fred’s subject matter is usually about his own pain, in which he often has to dig up old childhood memories. But I don’t agree that he “beats us over the head with his pain.” His pain on this album is sort of like P.O.D. and their Christianity. I don’t think you have to feel Fred’s pain to enjoy this C.D., just like you don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy P.O.D.’s music.

    “Eat You Alive” begins with an almost face melting guitar riff, which, at first only can be heard in one headphone. Five seconds later, the other instruments come along and back the riff, making it louder and audible in both headphones. On this song, the guitar seems so fast that the other instruments are almost playing catch up with it. Meanwhile, Fred yells away about the insanity of being in love with someone you can’t ever have. I, personally, know what that’s like, so I can relate to lyrics like “I just wanna look at you… all day…”
    “Gimme the Mic” is vintage Limp. Hard and catchy riffs coupled with a hook-heavy rap-metal beat.
    “Underneath the Gun” is the first semi-ballad of the album. Slow and melodic with a guitar solo (you heard me!) near the end. Fred’s voice isn’t great, but it’s tolerable and it goes well with this song’s music.
    “Almost Over” is a hit-or-miss. Some people will hate the self-absorbed lyrics, but many will relate to those lyrics. I like how this song’s verses are gentle, and the song builds to hard rock.
    “Red Light, Green Light” is another hit or miss. Tupac fans will hate Fred’s rapping, but I don’t think this song is bad, either. Good beat and a good cameo by Snoop Dogg, but mediocre lyrics by Fred.
    “Head for the Barricade” could have easily been one of the album’s singles. A mosh-worthy and headbanging-worthy chant at the beginning and a bobbing beat during the chorus. Very catchy.
    “Behind Blue Eyes” is yet another hit or miss song. Most say it’s a terrible cover, but, coming from someone who’s heard the original version as well as this version of the song, I can say it isn’t half bad. It actually isn’t that far removed from the original. Melodic, clear singing and gentle background music. The only discernable difference I can find between this and the original is this song’s bridge where Fred sings “Discover…L-I-M-P”.

    Now, since the usual Bizkit bases are covered here (rap metal, beat-heavy tracks, straight foward rap and a few ballads), this album won’t make you like the band if you never liked them before. If you like Limp Bizkit, buy this C.D. If you’re so-so on them or never liked them, this won’t change your mind.
