    I listened to this album and I was shocked of the quality of the album. They have improved a lot. Let's be honest, their last two albums were subpar. However, I feel like this album is better than their last three albums by quite a margin and is a top 3 Papa Roach album. Some of their best music to date easily comes from this album.

    Standout tracks for me: Gravity, Devil, and Warriors.


    Anyone check this album out? What do you think of it?

    Whoa whoa hold up. You listened to the album? How? I didn't even know it released? I haven't followed the album for long but I did hear of it recently and agree that out of the 4 singles they released, Warriors was awesome. However, I argue that Connection was one of their better albums.

    Edit: I am listening to it right now!!!

    Should check this out eventually. Hopefully it lives up to The Paramour Sessions (though we're never really going to get any lyrical genius from Jacoby Shaddix).

    I like the album. Gravity is such a good song, even though I dislike Maria's voice. Skeletons and War Over Me were also favorites of mine.

    Well, before the whole album came out, I fell in love with Broken As Me. And after hearing Fear Hate Love, I fell in love with it. One of the most hard-hitting songs on the album. I also dig Gravity a lot, but Maria could do better with her solo part. Skeletons is awesome as well. The start of Devil reminds me somehow of old-school PR with that sexy bass. Falling Apart would've been a great single since it is very catchy and cool. Warriors sounds like something off The Connection. Face Everything And Rise is another song like Falling Apart. I honestly don't really care for Never Have To Say Goodbye, although it has good lyrics. War Over Me sounds like it could be in GAWAM or Metamorphosis. Another badass hard-hitting song is Hope For The Hopeless. Love Me Till It Hurts sounds dark. Over all the whole album is awesome, and I like it the most out of all PR albums because it's the first I've been anticipating after starting listening to them. Same for THP from LP. This album sounds dark, but the lyrics are actualy full with positivity. And it is heavy, like the band promised.

    Hate the album. Completely indistinguishable from the 3 before it. Gravity is the most hilariously oblivious rap-rocking I've heard in a long time.

    I thought it was absolute horseshit, just like every album they've put out since lovehatetragedy.

    The joke segment was about twice as long as it needed to be.

    His actual review is on the money though.

    Almost every song on this album sounds the same. I've only listened to it once, but I wasn't impressed after being about 3 songs in. It seems like they hit some sort of groove in the studio and just churned out the same thing 10x.

    Getting Away With Murder was dope. Everything after that was horseshit.

    I've never heard Papa Roach before, so I don't have anything to say about it being similiar to their previous offerings, but so far I'm enjoying it, but I'm also a sucker for this generic sound.

    Has it ever been mentioned that Jacoby Shaddix sounds dangerously like John Cooper (Skillet?) :p That's not a terribly good or bad thing, just more of a tragically generic thing.

    Actually, if you didn't tell me what this was, I would probably say Skillet, if it wasn't for some of the digitized "Screaming" that is present in some tracks (Skillet hasn't done that for a few albums now lol).

    Yeah, everything about this album is laughably bad, like REALLY bad. I was never a fan to begin with though, I can't really think of a single song that I liked from them aside from listening to "Last Resort" so damn long ago.
