My nephew burned the cd for me...so I don't know where he got it...like I said before it is hardcore...full of pain and hate nothing like the sounds of "All I Want" or "Tangled Up In You". I agree that the band does not have one single formula for their songs...but have you heard "Country Boy"?????? I am not hating at all...Staind is my favorite band of all time and Aaron's voice gives me chills. But don't you think they have softened up a little and have become a little more main stream???

I agree that the music has changed but you have to realize that people are constantly evolving. If a bands music continue to sounds the same with every new CD then eventually you would get tired of it. Tormented came out in 1996. That is almost 19 years ago! I know 19 years ago I was completely different as I'm sure you were. In that time so many things can happen to a person, much less four people. I don't want to say they have changed so much as they have evolved. They still make GREAT music. I remember being a teenager and being able to relate to every single song. As each new cd came out I felt like it was created just for me. Through heartbreaks, triumphs, deaths, marriages, children and everything in between...Staind was there. They are different than what they were 19 years ago. I agree with you there. Then again, who isn't? :)

well said...and another thing to remember is that we all mature...slow down some and get back to your roots...bands evolve, and everyone know record companies know that for music to sell, it has to reach the radio....it isn't about selling out...it's evolution....it's either your cup of tea or it's not...i personally like new music...i certainly dont sit around listening to what i did as a kid....because i too evolved/ matured...

there is a formula after all..."authentic." all of their music is the real deal. whether it's anger, politics, love or pain....headbanging, acoustic, country or "main stream"...every bit of it strikes a chord...
