  • It’s good to know that there is still a little bit of talent left to hold onto from the shattered remains of their most recent, disappointing album; “Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water”. I still consider Significant Other to be the best of the band’s three albums and to be a contemporary classic in the world of rapcore, no matter how many fans accuse this album of being the results of “sellouts” and that it sucked compared to 3 Dollar Bill Y’all$. If you compare this album to the first CD, which is 3DBY$, the music here is much more organized and thought-through. Fortunately this CD also has the gift of variety, so we’re not stuck hearing the same chords over and over. Both hard rock and rap make this album what it is.Both the “Intro” and “Outro”, though short and pretty much meaningless, provide some good bass for fans who really crave that in their music. As far as hard rock is concerned, “Nookie”, “Don’t Go Off Wandering”, and “Nobody Like You” will do more than satisfy the fans tastes. The guitars and instrumental talent/effort put forth in all three pay off well. If you’re into metal or even harder rock, this album has that as well. “I’m Broke”, “Trust?”, and the single “Break Stuff” are energetic, and while most likely not satisfying to the tastes of Pantera or Slayer fans, still give a good run for a hard rock fans money. As for “9 Teen 90 Nine”, that rides the fence between rock and rap, and does a good job of it.For anyone craving quick beats and rap lyrics, “N 2 Gether Now” with Method Man is a nice addition, and “Just Like This” has some obvious rap influence. With all of the above said, some people may think that Limp Bizkit has no artistic or melodic side. Not true. The guitars are perfectly tuned, and the slower-paced and more melody-based songs such as “No Sex”, “Re-Arranged”, and “A Lesson Learned” are truly impressive. The last actual song on the album; “Show Me What You Got”, makes a good pseudo-ending track, and should have been a single itself.Overall, this album has just about everything in the rapcore world covered, all the way down to the cover art on the CD case. Not to mention the guest appearances of Jonathan Davis from KoRn, Scott Weiland from the Stone Temple Pilots, Aaron Lewis of Staind, Method Man, Matt Pinfield, Les Claypool, and even Fred Durst’s mother just before N 2 Gether Now. If you like rapcore, this is a must-have, and although it’s a good album, it’s not going to be one of those that will live on forever, which is the reason for it’s lacking of 5 stars.
