Disturbed - Are You Ready

Recommended Posts

Me likey! It's not as heavy as their older material, but seems to have a bit more lush musicality. I like the synth work. Polishes the edges a bit.

Die-hards already hate it, and die-hards *always* hate when a band goes more melodic, so it can't possibly be bad. :lol:

Not the greatest song they've ever done, but a good'un nonetheless. It sounds like Disturbed, which is good enough for me. If it's more polished and/or melodic, it's not by much. In a world full of modern hard rock/metal sound-alikes, these guys have always sported a distinct style that has resonated.

Listening to the new album, and I'm impressed. It's somewhat ballad-heavy, believe it or not, and may not have as hard an edge as their earliest material, but I am really enjoying it. The production is top notch. Very listenable if you like the Disturbed sound/style, which I do.

Sadly, I disliked this quite a lot. Yep, lots of ballads and they were very, very obviously trying to capitalise on their recent chart success. But I'm 95% sure they won't get it. I just don't think the songs are good at all; soft or not. I've never been a fan of this band so I wasn't expecting to be mind-changed... and I sure as hell wasn't. :(

Realistically though Geoff, if you've "never been a fan of this band" is there anything they could have released that you would have liked? Almost certainly not. So it's really not an indictment of this particular release.

Yep. Good songs. ;)

Haha. Yeah, it's one of those bands I should have stopped bothering with a while ago... hopefully this was the one that puts and end to it.

    • Excellent. I'm relieved as I thought some members here were all aboard the #metoo don't-dare-look-at-a-woman-because-that's-sexual-assault-you-misogynistic-creep bandwagon, and the acknowledging-that-a-lot-of-terrorists-are-muslim-is-so-fucking-racist bandwagon. But it's nice to hear you look beyond the basic "stats and lies" so hopefully we'll see no more politically correct "I love what the masses say; sign me up!" rubbish.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all.
