I also met them. They are amazing people, and I can relate to their songs as if they are telling my life's story. I don't care about the press, reviews. I believe they grow with every album, and never disappoint. Great musicians who are grounded, appreciate their fans, and how far they have come. Just four modest, humble men.
Personally my favorite albums are Dysfunction, Break the Cycle, and 14 Shades of Grey.
I like The Illusion of Progress better than Chapter V. I am not a fan of Tormented. I like 4 walls but would be lying to say I liked the album. I like some of the jazzy JCAT songs way better. I am also proud of all the fellow Staind fans I have come across from these sites, and shows.

Otan shows are great. I have only been to two but that is because I can only do Saturdays. I missed three others because he was sick for one, another was canceled do to weather. Another time it was raining so hard rocks were hitting my windows. I told him mother nature is not an OV fan. Manhattan shows do no justice 45 minutes is not long enough. Its worth the trip to Long Island for a full set.
yes i can actually say that i was the first to take a pic of his hands...he was late to the M&G because he was getting his hands tatted...and wow i'm jealous you get to see Otan....i plan on flying there just to see him perform...one of these days
