New Old Songs [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Limp Bizkit have proved that their success with the contagious breakthrough single “Nookie” was to be no flash in the pan. But this remix project aims to bring Fred Durst and company closer to the hip-hop community, which largely ignores them. And Limp should be commended for giving some top producers such as the Neptunes, Timbaland, P. Diddy, Butch Vig, and William Orbit carte blanche in retooling their biggest tunes, including a pair of “Nookie” remixes and no less than five versions of the band’s “My Way.” Rather than a Limp Bizkit vanity project, the disc becomes a vehicle for the real stars of the show -- the production talent.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Limp Bizkit have proved that their success with the contagious breakthrough single “Nookie” was to be no flash in the pan. But this remix project aims to bring Fred Durst and company closer to the hip-hop community, which largely ignores them. And Limp should be commended for giving some top producers such as the Neptunes, Timbaland, P. Diddy, Butch Vig, and William Orbit carte blanche in retooling their biggest tunes, including a pair of “Nookie” remixes and no less than five versions of the band’s “My Way.” Rather than a Limp Bizkit vanity project, the disc becomes a vehicle for the real stars of the show -- the production talent. The Neptunes add a string-laden, vintage disco intro to a stripped down "Nookie" that sips the honeyed hook from the original and casts away the heavy riff sting. Similarly, Timbaland's "Take a Look Around," which brings in rappers E-40 and 8-Ball, pumps down the volume but retains the smoldering anger. Limp's own DJ Lethal, who mans the console for a brace of tunes, plays things closer to the vest, turning "Counterfeit" into a guitar-hero showcase and leaving "Break Stuff" to roll around in its own mess. The various takes on "My Way" offer the most surprises, with DJ Premier conjuring a new wave vibe from the tune's simple melody and the Dub Pistols using it as a palette to paint a picture of Kingston, Jamaica, circa 1978. There once was a time when rock 'n' roll producers ran the show, minting singing sensations and fresh teen stars. In more than one way, this sampler of today's top celebrity producers makes everything old new again.
All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
New Old Songs is the remix album from rap-rock superstars Limp Bizkit. The band gets a lot of criticism, some deserved and some not, for their songwriting skills. But as this album proves, they actually have a very solid formula. The group's resident turntablist DJ Lethal has three remixes on the album, while Durst and Josh Abraham do a great remix of "Faith" by adding on bits and pieces of David Bowie's "Fame" and a decent rap by Everlast. And DJ Premier's mix of "My Way" is quite impressive, keeping it much like the original except for some great scratching and samples. The best remix might be Butch Vig's version of "Nookie," which sounds more like Fatboy Slim with its thick beat and dirty keyboards.

    Different but Good

    Although Limp Bizkit are a metal band, Fred and the crew excelled themselves with New Old Songs. I was pleasantly surprised by this album, as i am not a big fan of Garage or Hip-Hop. If you only like Limp Bizkit from a Metal stand point, this is not the abulm for you, hopefully, when they find a new guitarist, their next album will be heavier than all the others combined, and i am looking forward to it.

    Bizkit

    The album is the best of them all! All the great classics (Break stuff, Take a look around,Rollin and My Way) But a personal favourite has to be Getcha Groove on! Great work boys!!!
