I just got my hands on Stainds first album Tormented..I have been a long time crazy addicted fan and have been trying forever to get this cd....wow it is hard core. Aaron has come long way from those dark days. I keep listening to it and comparing it to there latests cd and it is like two diffrent groups. So my question is how do you go from that to what the band is now....almost "pop" music???? I sometimes miss the tortured soul part of there music. I saw Aaron in Feb. and he sang a new song Country Boy...I thought I was watching Kid Rock cuz thats what the song sounded like. I will always love Staind..my ipod is filled with every album..I will go see them anytime they come around the Boston area....I am just starting to wonder what direction they are going in. Dysfunction and Chapter 5 are the greatest albums ever....I hope they stay true to there roots. I am wondering if anyone else out ther feels the same way????
