Good to hear - it's the best cd of their career. Saw them here in Atlanta the other night and opening for Metallica in '03.. They kind of suck live. They don't have any energy on stage. As much as i love them, I don't think they will be too impressive on Ozzfest.

I like mudvayne but the new album sux. Too radio friendly and straight forward, and not enough suspense like their other albums.

I liked them before, but the new one does suck... "Happy" is alright, but they put the best song out as their first single so that everyone would rush out and buy that sh*t. I hope their next one is a lot better!

you are all f*cking insane, "Lost And Found" is the best of "L.D. 50" and "The End Of All Things To Come" combined, this album kicks so much a$$ its ridiculuos. The lyrics are more personalized and shows the band in their real light. the riffs are heavier, the bass and drums are the best they have ever been, and Chad's vocals are just absolutely amazing. "Happy?" is a great song but it is not the best, IMN, Just, and Forget To Remember are the best songs on that CD. so far i have only heard Happy? on the radio three times and i have seen Mudvayne live. They do have tons of energy and there live show was f*cking awesome. I can't wait to see them at Ozzfest. Mudvayne F*UCKING RULES!!!! \m/ \m/

Yeah this album is too good, no its not the same as their other great songs but who wants to hear the same sh** just reissued, each new album they put out is original and different wich to me makes it great. The new album has alot of great songs "I.M.N." "Rain. Sun. Gone" "Happy?" "All That You Are" "Pulling The String" my favorites from this album would have to be "Fall Into Sleep" "Forget To Remember" & "Choices" but all the songs are great because their powefull and all full of different emotion thats why I love mudvayne. oh and ive heard them live several times and they do to have mad freakn energy, just check out the silenced live in germany video...cant tell me they dont have energy,i even remember that one time ryan had the flu and they whole band was feeling so sh**ty and they still rocked the hell out of a sell out concert. If you dont like mudvayne then you probably just cant relate or even begin to understand what the muscial poetry is all about

I agree with Jarek if you dont like them you just cant understand, only the small and few people like us and Bryan Ottoson could ever understand (R.I.P my friend) as mudvayne was one of his favorite bands. Its not hard to see why because when you feel a certain way words can hardly explain its like treasure to find a band like mudvayne who can express almost exactly what you think and feel in such non illusive power because what we feel think and have felt is not a erroneous perception of reality, everything inside us all are emotion is very real indeed.

Nu-Metal kid makes me regret liking some of the bands I do. RIP Mushroomhead.

IMN is by far the best song on the album, it just has such araw mudvayne sound. Those who never liked Mudvayne wont change their mind with this album. Happy? is on the radio a bit, but so is that lame a$$ Before I Forget from Slipknot. God ive lost all respect for those idiots.

And Linkin Park Killa, you have no right to rip on a real band, especailly a metal one, when ure band does songs with Rappers. Rap is the joke of music industries. A dime a dozen hits, and the same f***ing message in every song. Real good.

Flaw, Sinch ? Come on, thats as bad as 3 Doors Down. The problem with Nu-Metal, is that there are some really good bands, and some bands riding the wave.

Flaw is a band that caught on for about 30 seconds. Another example is Thousant Foot Krutch, Submersed, etc... The Deftones shouldnt be considered music. They are Nu-metals version of Christina Skankalera. A7X will fit in there too.

If you want some REAL metal bands that are new check out :

Lamb of God (Duh)
God Forbid
Shadows Fall
Dry Kill Logic
All That Remains (Metalcore)
Bury Your Dead
Heaven Shall Burn


Its alot better then A7X, 18 Visions, and Papa Roach who all sound and look like now.
