yep, Taproot is really good. If you want some songs to download, get "I," "again and again," "lowlife," and then like "poem". Taproot is a good and to listen to, but I don&#39;t think that Stephen Richards (the singer) sounds ANYTHING like chester at all&#33;&#33;&#33; They have differnet voices and sounds completely, but TR is still really cool&#33;&#33;

Yes, very worthy to buy. This CD isn&#39;t has heavy as their previous album&#39;s, but its still very very good.

Amy

taproot is cool, check them out. I liked "gift" better than "welcome" but it was still a kick-ass CD.

poem is a bad song compared to anything else on &#39;Welcome&#39; or &#39;Gift&#39;.

listen to p5hng me a*wy again, steven richards&#39; voice kinda sounds similar to chester.

The video just consists of Taproot in the studios.

With the &#39;which is the better album&#39; subject, it all depends on what mood you are in. The majority of the songs on Gift are heavier than what they are on Welcome. So if you are in a &#39;pissed off&#39; kinda mood, Gift would probably be better, but if you are just relaxing, Welcome would be the better album to listen to. Stephen Richards(vocalist) has said that they rushed Gift so they could go on Ozzfest, with Welcome they took their time and got exactly what they wanted, more harmonies are used and its much more melodic, where as with Gift its more heavier and doesnt sound as &#39;produced&#39;. So it all depends on your music style and what mood your in I think.

I think Gift is the better album though :P

Chester 76, i just went on taproot breathe and it&#39;s a very nice site yu have there&#33;
It&#39;s really wierd the more yu listen to Welcome, the heavier it seems to get&#33; because now i think that Mine, Myself and Fault are quite heavy too :unsure:

I was on the concert in Berlin (second february 2003).
It was very great and they&#39;d rock the ####### house...
Stephen is very great singer...
He can sing very powerful and heavy but also very
soft and quiet...thats very awesome...
After the gig, I bought their new album "welcome".
On "welcome", there are very great hardrock songs like
"mine", "poem", "myself&#39;, "when", "fault"...but also
very soft tracks like "art" or "like"...I LOVE TAPROOT&#33;
They had appear to LP on their european-tour with deftones... :rolleyes:

The tour with LP, deftones, and taproot definitely kicked ass. Deftones and LP are my two favorite bands and taproot is great as well
