This group for me at least has been pretty hit or miss, up until now. The experimentation is awesome, and more than half this album picks your eardrums up and slams them into a staticky, hardcore abyss. That’s a good thing! I really couldn’t be bothered with a couple tracks, like Autumn & Carbine or Who I Am, but everything else is awesome! They definitely have room for improvement and will change the game up with this.
Code orange go above and beyond to deliver one of their most exciting and interesting albums yet. They once again push the genre in a new direction without compromising their signature sound. They seem to be one of the only bands actually doing something new in the genre these days. This one will be on repeat for weeks to come.
I find it hard to digest this record. I love Code Orange but I feel like the groovy parts on this record are overly interrupted by some sort of sample or noise making it hard to nod your head to at times. The vocals are way stronger on this record and the production is fantastic. I just initially find myself getting lost in it and sometimes wishing certain parts where longer. Either way Code Orange is here to stay and with said I give it 4 stars.
I will say that the comment about this being a 15 year old remake of Limp Bizkit is a not accurate at all. And just to clarify... I don't really like this band, but to compare it to LB is just wrong. Along with that there was another post on the opposite side of silly that tried comparing this to some sort of revolution as it was with Metallica and Nirvana... that is even crazier. This provides nothing NEW... which is why Metallica and Nirvana were so influential. Its not that Code Orange is a bad artist, its just nothing we haven't heard before from other groups and the only ones to truly find this to be a religious experience are the groupies.
This album is a truly fantastic experience for new and old Code Orange fans. The album really hits home with old material, but also shows you that Code Orange has other tricks up their sleeve with industrial elements. Overall, great album. Check this one out!
Let’s all celebrate this moment because now that the album is out, everything changes. 25 years from now, this will be recognized as the moment when heavy music changed. This is the moment that decided where things go from here. Like Metallica’s Black Album, Nirvana’s Nevermind and Korn’s eponymous debut, this is another one of those precious moments in rock and roll history. Cheers to Code Orange. Cheers to us, their fans, the Thinners of the Herd. Cheers to the future, because this is it!
i’m just gonna ignore the one comment that said this was a ripoff of Limp Bizkit, for obvious reasons. anyways, just gave this album a listen and it’s fantastic. Will Yip’s production is great, the music is very layered & well executed, the vocals are in your face from start to finish and it’s a very engaging album. gotta give it another listen while reading along with the lyrics, but if you think they’re overrated just give this album a try. it’s a step up from their previous work & i think it’ll draw some new fans from those who think the hype isn’t deserved or at least people who respect the ambition in this album🤘
The 1 star bs with little to no reason is absurd, just as a 5 star without a proper play through. So here’s to balance. Song rips by the way, looking forward to see what else they’ve developed into.
