The day that I’ve been waiting for all summer has finally come, the release date to your new album and I’m very excited! Just finished hearing you guys on the Howard Stern show on Sirius and you guys rocked like always! I’ve been a long time fan since Tormented and you guys always seem to amaze me album after album. Keep up the great job and PLEASE visit Toronto Canada, I still don’t see any Toronto dates for your tour which saddens me. Cheers guys, and congrats on the new album!

Staind has done it again people... they have made another number one album for sure. This CD has it all, hard rockin tracks such as this is it and rainy day parade, to songs on the softer side like tangled up in you, then in the song "the corner" there's a choir singing background vocals. This is the most versatile Staind CD yet, and It has to be right up there among their best. To me every song Staind has made is a hit, but I believe this album will also transcend to listeners who may have… Continue

I just received my copy of "The Illusion of Progress" in the mail today and i was one of the fortunate few who got a copy that was signed by the band!!! I just wanted to thank Aaron, Mike, Jon and Johnny for taking the time to sign all the albums you did. And also thank you so much for the amazing music. This album is SO GREAT! Definitely ANOTHER step in the right direction. The musicality of this album, i think, is definitely the best that's come from Staind. Thanks again!

We are only minutes away from the arrival of another great album by one of the greatest bands on the planet. All the tracks I've heard thus far have been dope and i have already preordered the bundle on Itunes and will go to best buy in the morning and cop the disc. Let put the guys back at the top of the billboard charts again with this release. Later.

Down the path of growing up,
I walked through the darkness alone.
Afraid to go farther,
I turn to look where happiness once shown.
The light has turned dim,
Now the future is so bleak.
I look deeper in the trail,
For the answers that I seek.
Locked up in myself,
I dream of the past.
Not sure of what to do,
I try to walk fast.
The darkness swallows me up.
Will the future ever arrive?
Untill it does,
Can I, alone, survive?

It draws my arms to the ground.
My eyes continuously follow.
I hear nothing,
I feel everything,
Confusion sets in.
My legs carry me as if I were on air.
My mind, a total loss.
I think of leaving.
To where I don't know.
All think I sound good.
They call to me,
And I to them.

Contridictions of the soul
Neither light nor darkness
Shall claim her whole
She walks the night
She walks the day
And she shall rest
When they BOTH fade

I want to run away
Inside my bright red scream
I want to break the doors
Holding back my dream
Living like this
Checking the skies for rain
A constant reminder
Of this burden and pain
I'm holding on to
A shooting star
Its points cutting my skin
This time it's gone too far
Nothing left to wish on
My bloody star fell
Left me drowning in hopes
Inside my wishing well
Not looking for a… Continue

As I put the razor to my skin,
I feel the adrenalin,
the pain is a sudden rush to me,
as the blood falls to the floor
I see my pain and worries disappearing.
I hide my scars in fear of what you may say,
but without you these scares will not exist.
My love, my life, my reason
I sit here and bleed.
My smiles, my tears,
my heart tares more and more.
You deny your love, I deny my pain.
The pain I feel when your not by my side.

.. is not much of an illusion.
this album very nearly brings tears to my eyes.
i don't even know what i love most.
this is it
is such a solid rock song.
is easily a good, yet radio-friendly Staind song.
almost reminds me of tormented
all i want
is so catchy i can hardly believe it.
really stands out as a Staind song to me, the "on the edge of a breakdown" sound is one thing i really… Continue

The voice that's been silent
all these years
thinks deep thoughts but,
I thought I destroyed
every memory we had.
They were lost long ago,
but they're all coming back.
Your endless nights of pleasure,
as my body laid there,
motionless and powerless.
The endless crying
buried deep within me,
you never heard,
Don't do it again, please,
don't do it again, I'll be good,

Loved the show last night. Got there too late to catch Theory of a Deadman put did get a pic with them, post it later. HInder was cool. I wasn't a fan before but I forgot that i loved the closing song Get Stoned which threw the crowd in a frenzy. But the band I came to see came out on stage and fuck all the usual rock star bullshit (HEY BELTON TEXAS!! ARE YOU READY TO ROCK!!) they walked to stage and just did it. The guys sounded phenomenal! I'm a Hip-hop head by heart but far and away Staind… Continue

It was epic!
Austin (vocals) from Hinder moved about the stage diligently. She slips while walking up these metal steps and landed on his knees. But, luckily he was saying anything at the moment, or that would have just screwed everything up. In the end, he played it out nicely by not tumbling down dramaticly. Everyone cheered after he raised his hands.
Staind came out onto the stage, but, didnt even acknowledge our existance for the first 3 songs. Then they said… Continue
