    Even now, nu-metal is about as popular as flannel, I am firmly convinced that “the disease” is a great debut (one of the best debuts this side of the year 2000) by one of the NU – Metal bands the best. Disturbed of follow-up album, 2002's “Believe” is more mature than this CD, but “the disease” is more fantasy. And it is full of raw aggression, off-the-wall energy and catchy songs (almost all of these songs is very catchy). “Stupify” has vocal hooks, whereas many of the other songs (eg “The Game” and “Down with the Sickness”) have cool, fast scat (from front man David Draiman). “Voices” is another highlight (it has stutter-step, syncopated riffs and rapping), as is “Fear” (which has eerie electronics and Mosh Pit ready to fist-pumping chorus) and “Shout 2000″ ( this is a louder more acidic version of a song originally by the band Tears For Fears). Finally, with violent lyrics and mean, singing, “meaning of life” is a good hymn to hear, when you get angry at the world.
      It can not be innovative or mature album of all time, but this is nu-metal and a must for all, in 1990 the nostalgia. The essence is, if you hate nu-metal, it is probably wise, the “disease” a wide birth, but if you like this genre and this band, or if you are willing to listen with an open mind, you should really like this CD

    I bought Disturbed is the disease, after not being able to “The Game” from my head after the third time I heard him on the “Funky Monkey” FM station here in Tacoma. This was already after I had heard “Stupify” (which I originally thought was a “StupidFly”), “Voices” and “Down with the Sickness” for the hundredth time, everyone. Although somehow I like each song to a certain extent, I have had my fun of them, especially with singer David Draiman is unique, and often annoying, vocal ticks and practices (including the repetitive “Zooooo-ah!” In “Voices” and “OH-WA-AAA-AH!” in “Down with the Sickness”). But then I heard “The Game” and I decided what the … “The Game” has everything: big keyboard sound, big drums / bass, guitar, sharp knife in the right places and a masterful combination of wistful-sounding, melodic, tenor voice with shrill cries, angry, all the effects of a kick to the head . And, you can use it to dance! (Although I do not dance.) About everything and everything else on this CD, “The Game” is a masterpiece – of its time and genre. How I could finally play the rest of the CD, I noticed that (to my surprise) most of the other songs are very good, and do not sound much like any other. That really surprised me, because I had found the first three songs I had heard about them to be a bit too similar (especially the “Voices” and “Down with the Sickness”). Although there are similar themes are rotated by something on the CD, there is much greater diversity in the music than I had expected to hear. “Violence Fetish” has a heavy industrial sound, and the hook line “Bring the Violence / It 's significant” is used to good effect. “Numb” begins with a New Age vortex at the top of the keyboard that is surprising and fresh, “want” has a funky feel, and “conflict” with its repeated growls of “enemy” is dark, fascinating — but that's not all! It is also soft, almost soothing vocals from David Draiman in his quiet bridge, before we loose with heavy rhythm; Draiman uses his synthesized voice as a separate instrument, as he repeated “eh-eh-eh-eh-ENEMY! ” Now, for the * real * surprise of the disease:” Shout2000, “Disturbed's incredible version of the 1985 Tears For Fears classic” Shout. ” Blending some of the atmospheric keyboards of the original with modern, diamond-hard rhythm guitar power chords and optimistic, pummelling mid-tempo drumbeats, this is simply one of the greatest cover songs of all time. For me it is a very close second on this CD to “The Game”. The CD rounds off with two great songs: “Droppin 'Plates' and' meaning of life. “The former begins with some loud funky rapping of David Draiman, and appends them with schwindelerregenden'80 's New Wave synthesizers, along with einem'90' s hip-hop beat. Pretty cool! The latter has elements of all the other songs: many rap screaming, buzzsaw guitars, trippy synths, and many of double-bass drums, with a lot of time-change experts, courtesy of the extremely talented drummer / programmer Mike Wengren. Two things that are clearly on the disease are excellent musicianship and production values. In view of the fact that this CD is the sickness, I (of course) have decided that my comments about “Down with the Sickness” for the last. Basically the title track of the CD, it is quite new life (and sense) than the edited version on the radio. It includes a bridge, so violent and disruptive in the (de-) nature, that it is the aural equivalent of Dawn of the Dead, American Psycho, or, for that matter. The texts can not be repeated here, even in part, and they are not in the printed text on the inside CD cover. I can only say to this section of the “Down with the Sickness” is that they are not for the faint of heart, and offers a far greater impact than the entire first Slipknot CD, which I also have, and will decide at a later date. Forget what the Amazon music editor, says of the alleged “XXX-rated Hoobastank,” by the band with the same name. Hell, Hoobastank does not even have the Parental Advisory sticker on it – they do not curse on their CD. Believe me when I say that on the basis of “Down with the Sickness” alone, the disease is Disturbed definitely deserves Parental Advisory sticker – and then some. This is an important debut by a band loud and angry, and I think that is more disturbing things to expect students to come Disturbed CD. Then again, they may simply, and surprised me again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Best of Disturbed
    This is my favorite Disturbed album, has so many of their really good songs on it. This is one of the few albums I can let play straight through without changing or fast…

    Make Primer 55, Gravity Kills and Cold all mixed up, and thou hast Disturbed. Their music can be regarded as a serious groove with an alternative core Nu-Metal sound mixed with Electronica. The song is a kind of half-rap, half-singing style, with a distinct sound that goes well with the music. There are not really any standout tracks on the CD because every song is good, but if I had a fav I would say, “Voices,” “Stupify” and “Down with the Sickness” are cool. They also provide a good cover of the song “Shout”. This band definitely has their own style and own sound fresh to the music industry. One of the best debuts I've heard. Recommended. Other debuts next to the checkout: Papa Roach, Professional Murder Music, Glassjaw, Taproot, Slaves On Dope, and Sicboy.

    Restored My Faith In Metal
    These guys restored my faith in metal. I know that this CD has been out nine years, but it still rocks! I remember purchasing it when it first came out.

    down with the suckness
    I dunno. Their singer tries to be real scary & intimidating. But it just makes me laugh. It doesnt help matters that he is 5ft tall with boots on.

    Fun for a little while, but…
    I’m not a huge disturbed fan, I do not have any of their shirts, I have not seen them live, and no I don’t have “Disturbed” tattooed across my back.
