It's hard to compete with the unadulterated poetry of a line like, "I did it all for the nookie, so you can take that cookie and stick it up your yeah!" from the multi-platinum album Significant Other. But Limp Bizkit thrive under pressure and relish the chance to challenge -- or at least piss off -- both fans and critics. The band's third disc, Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water, quickly bursts into confrontational mode on "Hot Dog," with vocalist Fred Durst saying the "F" word more than 30 times before taking a dig at Trent Reznor. From there, Durst attacks shit-talkers, backstabbers, unfaithful women, and journalists. Even the album title sounds like a snide satire of a pompous album title like Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Durst's lyrical tirades are so fierce they threaten to obscure the music, which is pretty funkin' phat. Like Significant Other, this album is rooted in groove-laden rap-metal, but this time around the Bizkit downplay distorted bombast, focusing more on Wes Borland's galactic guitar squiggles, John Otto's hip-hop beats, and DJ Lethal's creative scratching. The caustic tracks "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)" and "Rollin' (Urban Assault Vehicle)" are bolstered by guest raps by DMX, Method Man, and Redman, and "Getcha Groove On" benefits from an appearance by Xzibit. But it's creative cuts such as "Livin' It Up" (which samples the Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane") and "Hold On" (which includes some unexpected CSNY-style vocal harmonies) that make The Hot Dog Flavored Water truly tasty.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The scatological meaning of Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water is obvious to anyone who's graduated junior high. Hot dogs and chocolate starfishes are metaphors, as Fred Durst uses them to illuminate his one topic, how nobody understands him. He occasionally frames his rage as us versus them, as on "My Generation," but, ultimately, it's all about himself. Durst dwells on bad things said about him, dismissing the criticism that he helped stoke the fires at Woodstock 99 with a round of the "critics that don't get it," and devoting a song to an attack at labelmate Trent Reznor. Some fans may empathize with Durst, but will it resonate?

Don't get me wrong, I love Limp Bizkit's old stuff but i'm most certainly not a fan of their new stuff. Their new stuff is weak, they've gone against everything they used to talk about and kissed some posterior. They also denied the hand that feeds them by dissing on koRn, they would be nothing without them. I also want to say that Fred Durst is NOT the most beautiful man on this earth, he's a short, bald man and if you like the music cause you think that the lead singer is ''hot'' then you need to make some reconsiderations. Bands should be appreciated for the music they make, NOT their looks. Limp Bizkit is way over rated and their not worth the one star I did give them.

Limp Bizkit, a band of many sounds and mixes. There really wasn't a band that had a mixture of R&B and alternative rock before Limp Bizkit. The music of Limp Bizkit attracts many young teens today. Even though many ''rockers'' today don't consider Limp Bizkit as a rock band, that doesn't mean that they aren't. They are just as much rock as Korn and Linkin Park. I am giving Limp Bizkit's album 5 stars because of the music. Yes, the title of the CD may not be all that good, but that doesn't affect the music on the CD. Limp Bizkit gets a lot of bad reviews for their lyrics on the album simply because Fred Durst speaks his mind and the truth about life. Personally, I think that there is nothing wrong with that because it gives people a different view on how other people see life. I would recommend this album to anyone who wants to listen to it and is interested in this kind of music.

This album kicks major azz!! The song called livin it up and my way are the bomb. Hot Dog and Getcha Groove on are also way dope. You must get this CD!!

i think that the song ;my generation is a hiped up song that makes me want to go out and BMX with my friends and create may hem i also like the song RoLlIn. the song has hard beats and i can brake to it. ineed to do sompthing crazy every time i hear a LiMp BiZkIT song. This basically guts the record, especially ''Hot Dog'' where ''f*****-up'' is used upwards of 50 times, but parents should be reassured that there's this option on the market. But they should consider this -- not one profanity is used sexually, it's all an expression of rage or slang. After a while, the cursing isn't even noticeable, since it's so consistant it winds up signifying nothing. thanx rm

They've come a long way. But Rollin is a song that seems to have been put together in a matter of minutes. The beat is catchy, wes plays great as usual. But don't expect a lot out of this record folks.

They retain their great style of music and great lyrics!!! I would recommend this cd to anyone who likes great music!!!!

It's just another ordinary rock/metal album.There's nothing really special about it.Maybe itz just the reputation that Limp Bizkit had grown after the movie MI2.Although a few tracks may be a catch to people but some are still rather not well made.

I remember their first CD, Three dollar bill. While not matching that of Korn, it was not bad. In fact, it was worth buying. The second CD strayed from the greatness of the original, but still retained some of the original Limp. And now for the third CD.........all I have to say is that Limp Bizkit has been takin over by the fame bug.

Of all my Limp Bizkit Cds, this one is definity the best! You should listen to every track, especially 5,8,the intro to 9 and 13. They're all quite ''moving'' Listening to Limp Bizkit is relaxing. If you don't have it, get it because I said so!
Guest More than 1 year ago
My review for this CD is that I give it 4 stars. I give it 4 stars because It has a great sound. I especially love the song Livin it up. also the main track Hot Dog. The content on the non-edited CD is only good for people ages 13 on up. otherwise, it is not appropriate. The Clean version is ok for ages 10 on up. I give it only 4 stars because some of the songs have the same sort of beat, and sound somewhat the same. otherwise it is a great CD.

The cd is great. If you feel their tone, you will really like the new album. It is a good mix, and I'm so glad they added the MI:2 theme song ''Take a Look Around.'' I'll tell you, I wasn't really into Limp Bizkit before, but the new CD has really gotten me into it.

If you like Limp bizkit then buy this straight away. It's top quality with my favourite song 'Rollin''. I should of just put AMAZING!!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
whilst begining with two amazing albums it would appear limp bizkit have fallen into the same line as other popular acts. following in the lines of bands such as korn they have simply lost it as a result of stardom. whilst rollin isnt a half bad track the album greatly disappoints. lets see if the new stars papa roach do the same shall we? keep your eyes peeled for tomorrows stars murdock, hailing from devon they boast a fresh sound and catchy tunes.

This album kicks major butt. The song called My Way and Livin it Up are really good. Also Getcha Groove on and Hot Dog are tight as well

Limp Bizkit is awesome! I am one of the many people who limp with da Bizkit! Hot dog, which has 48 curses (I counted), My generation which Fred Durst expresses his seriousness over his generation, full nelson when he gets tired of when someone talks behind his back, and all the other songs especially my way and rolling which are da bomb! In track 15, Ben Stiller even likes it! If Ben Stiller likes it, ya better like it! The money is worth it if ya family can't get on napster, cause napster sux after taking off the copyrighted songs, so go on this site and get Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog flavored water! That name is so cool!Plus ya all will like the cover, it's fat! So keep rolling, rolling on barnesandnoble.com and get this album today! Ya won't regret it!

in 97 when limp bizkit brought theyre first cd out they were the most popular rock band in 98 they brouht out significant other which was theyre worst cd yet and 2000 Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavored Water is there best cd yet it has a mix of rap and rock which i think will be good for the music industry
