There hasnt been a thread for a few pages on them, so I figured I would make one.

I wasnt sure myself if I was going to get their new album, "14 Shades Of Grey" due out May 20th, but after hearing this 5 song sampler of it, I know ill buy it on day one. Here a mini review of the sampler:

These are just minute or so clips of the songs, so its a bit hard to fully review them, but whatever.

Yesterday - Awesome drum beat, and the guitar is pretty nice too. The chorus is the best part through.

How About You - Well, this song has potential, but the first bit I heard wasnt the best, still sounded pretty decent through.

So Far Away - Acoustic a little bit, but the chorus is the real hook here. Okay I guess.

Zoe Jane - Way too sappy, I dont really like it. Sounds like "Outside".

Fray - Amazing. This pretty much is the song that makes me wanna buy the CD.

All in all, Yesterday and Fray are the best so far, and I guess I will have to wait until May 20th to hear the rest. And if you want the sampler, it is on IRC. I found it on irc.phazenet.com.

So, who else here likes Staind? Who else plans on picking up their new CD May 20th?

I was sure I was going to get it. Then I had some doubts about buying it the day it came out because I was low on cash. But i've since made $150 and i'm definately buying it.

which channel on irc.phazenet.com? I'm intrigued about the sampler.

Oh, type /list and you will see it in the topic of the channel. There is only a few that have it, so you might have a bit of trouble, but my advice is to try all the channels that list it.

The reason it may sound a little "sappy" is because it is about his daughter, Zoe.

Staind is one of the best bands. When Aaron sings, you can really feel the pain in his lyrics. I will be buying their new cd when it comes out. I can&#39;t wait to hear it.

Lmao, that&#39;s great. It would be funny if it was an actual intro-type thing. But I think it will be an acoustic song done by Aaron.

I don&#39;t like staind a whole lot because it is disappointing to see metal bands tone it down with acoustic style music. Metal bands should reamin heavy and others lean towards alternative style

I&#39;ve never hard a song by them except a few weeks ago that I heard Price to Play. And I&#39;ve also seen the video. From just listening to that song I think that they might have an interesting music vibe. Can you guys tell me the best song by them?

They have a non-DVD version? Weird, I thought they all came with DVD&#39;s. Anyway, they are at Family Values and tons of people are on stage, including Korn, Staind, Chester, and Static-X, and they sing happy birthday to Wayne from Static-X. Its really not a big cameo.

No...Outside is incredibly over-rated. You want a good album?

Check out Dysfunction. ####### amazing and lengendary album.



DOWNLOAD MUDSHOVEL. that&#39;s their best radio single by far.

I can&#39;t believe you&#39;ve never heard Staind before.

What country do you live in? That&#39;s a serious question too, I&#39;m not making fun of you- it&#39;s just obvious that you don&#39;t live in the US, since Staind is EVERYWHERE over here.

I think they are pretty close. I don&#39;t think I could choose which one is the actual better album.

14 Shades Of Grey is my favorite of the two however, but that is most likely because it is newer music.
