Steal This Album!
Released November, 2002
The Pros:Unique and clever CD design artwork. Disc art comes in a variety of collectable editions. Aggressive and innovative hard rock compositions.
The Cons:At times guilty of SOAD's tendency to make songs sound too similar. Style is not as groundbreaking as it seemed on the self-titled album or Toxicity.
Parental Advisory: Mature Content
