Listening Post

Ready to party like it's 1999 -- seriously?

The only thing funnier than the fact that Limp Bizkit's new album sounds like time stopped about a decade ago is the expectation that somebody like Fred Durst -- traditionally, the patron saint of the developmentally stunted -- would ever grow up at all.

Axe Body Spray and Girls Gone Wild, say hello to the tour you're about to co-sponsor.

Here's new Bizkit, and strangely it's kind of comforting to have them back. This is Gold Cobra.

I wrote a review of this for a site I write for and was honestly shocked at how entertained I was by the disc. I mean, some of it is just flat-out terrible as expected, but for the majority of the playtime Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, and John Otto are well on top of their game, which is always the key to making Fred less annoying.

Chez said...

Yeah, I still love Wes -- and this band's rhythm section is one of the best anywhere.

Hex said...

Agreed. My only complaint about the return is the LB is what I assume is the stopping of Black Light Burns.

J. Dack said...

That video is god damn embarrassing.

Does Durst realize he's fucking forty years old?

Mike said...

Man, the more things change, the more they stay the same. It's like I never left high school.

The red Yankees cap will never die.
