Disturbed Evolution(Deluxe)

Hello everyone,
I just discovered that Disturbed released their new Album last year yesterday. I usually keep up with things like this but somehow this slipped by me. Anyway I listened to the entire Album and I have mixed feelings about it.
Seems like they are now playing more Ballad type stuff I'm assuming due to the fact " Sound of Silence" was such a huge hit and rightfully so. Amazing song BUT that's not what they do best.
Anyway the one song I really like but HATE some of the things they did on it is " In Another Time". I usually don't pick on songs to hard ( yeah right I murder this LOL) but in the beginning of the song they have this really cool intro BUT then it slows down completely setting you up for the next part instead of punching you in the face like I would have. I would have JUMPED right into the heavy riff causing drama instead of tension. I think the song would have flowed better. And the F&%cking Talk box b*llSh*T gotta go. I think they should be left to Pop and Rap music and have NO PLACE in Metal Music. It's annoying and sounds like a Producer made them put that in because it's WHATS POPULAR these days. I hate it as this song could have been completely badass and I feel these things ruin it from being a 5 star song to my rating is 3 stars at best. The riff I love I think it's written extremely well but the talk box and stupid slow down in the intro ruin this song from me complete loving it.
This album has me at odds. I'm not sure if I like it or not. It has it's moments but some of the Industry popular things in it ruin it for me. I wish they just wrote how they always wrote and leave the stupid gimmick stuff out. They are WAY to good to need any of that crap in their music.

My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    Nothing since their first album has excited me, I love their version of SOS but it's nothing I really go back to.. I'm the same with Godsmack, their first album is gold, everything after it, its a song here and there I like..

    Agreed, Evolution has grown on me after a few spins. Can understand why some folks don't like all their stuff...kind of the Nickelback of the Metal world. After a bit their songs can sound the same. But, you can't deny they are Disturbed from the first few bars of a song. Regardless, I really enjoy them.

    The Sickness was my intro and I play it, along w/Ten Thousand Fists and Immortalized, regularly when I work out. I used The Sickness to pace myself during the running portion of my military PT tests. Nice fast beat. Try running to the pace of those drums and bass line!

    Saw them in concert last night and they put on quite a show. Played for 2 hours. No nonsense...just hard hitting, melodic and infectious performance. Stage show was pretty straight forward w/pyro and video backdrop. As a bonus, received a free copy of their Evolution CD when I purchased the concert tickets.

    Crappy vid from my phone of the encore/finale..."The Sickness". Crowd went wild! Here's the link to Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wbE3Xhe-Zymj1fVWbuKJ4puw5QdmKgWx

    Saw them in Dallas and I was glad I went. I'm not a huge Disturbed fan, but they do know how to put on a live show. I still can't get over Draiman is starting to look like Phil Collins AND sings a Gensis song. Once I put that together I couldn't stop thinking about it.

    Now that's funny! Hadn't thought of this but can't stop, too.
