New World Orphans [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Whenever a trend becomes hot, major labels will likely milk it to death and flood the market with a glut of releases that are either mediocre and pedestrian or flat-out embarrassing. We've seen that with everything from bossa nova to disco to gangsta rap, and we certainly saw it with rap-metal in the late '90s and early 2000s. Not surprisingly, there was a major backlash against rap-metal (or "nu-metal," if you prefer) in the mid- to late 2000s. But let's not forget that when rap-metal was great, it was really great -- great as in Rage Against the Machine, great as in 24-7 Spyz, Living Colour, Run-D.M.C., the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ice-T's Body Count, great as in ...

Not surprisingly, there was a major backlash against rap-metal (or "nu-metal," if you prefer) in the mid- to late 2000s. But let's not forget that when rap-metal was great, it was really great -- great as in Rage Against the Machine, great as in 24-7 Spyz, Living Colour, Run-D.M.C., the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ice-T's Body Count, great as in Tommy Lee's Methods of Mayhem. And (hed) p.e. have also made some fine contributions to rap-metal, which they continue to embrace on their 2008 recording/early 2009 release New World Orphan. If rap-metal is dead, you wouldn't know it listening to this 66-minute CD; (hed) p.e. still play rap-metal with plenty of conviction. But then, (hed) p.e. have been combining metal, hip-hop, and punk since 1994; they weren't among the faceless bandwagon jumpers who picked up guitars and started rapping the first time they heard Limp Bizkit or Korn. New World Orphan always sounds organic rather than contrived, and it also sounds angry. Except for a few tracks that thrive on raunchy sexploitation, New World Orphan is an angrily political album. (Hed) p.e.'s incendiary political rants can be quite rhetorical, but there are plenty of specifics as well. "Middle Class Blues," for example, is about the economic assault on America's middle class, while "Tow the Line" attacks the treacherous neo-cons who lied the U.S. into that foreign policy disaster known as the Iraq War. And even when (hed) p.e. are being rhetorical, their hooks are always infectious. The fact that this album comes long after rap-metal's commercial heyday doesn't make it any less exciting; (hed) p.e. are on top of their game throughout New World Orphan.

    Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!

    I have never commented on this website in my life. But Croakies-andboatshoes has motivated me like no other. This new Hed album is so far removed from a Sum 41 album as he suggests that he makes me sick. Hed has more talent in one finger than the whole band of Sum 41 combined and this new release shows that talent can come across without all the major label money backing and months of studio time costing millions. Jared probably recorded this album in his home studio in Idaho or wherever he now lives and it will probably be the best release of 2009. Hed fans, buy this album as their 4'th indie release will make you very happy. No it does not have all the layers of the first three major label albums, but this album has soul. What message you derive from it is up to you, its just good music!!!! Croakies-andboatshoes, enjoy Sum 41's next release and please don't tell Hed fans about it.

    I hardly write bad reviews, but I'm actually disappointed in spending the money for this CD.. so I hope no one else wastes their time and money. It's not that I have a problem with weed, sex, or questioning authority.. it's just that (hed) p.e. are spinning their wheels with their ways to deliver these subjects. The music on this CD is horrible, it's sloppy punk music.. they used to be amazing with phat hip hop drums and spaced out and grinding guitars. This CD sounds as if it was all jammed together to make a few extra bucks. Again, this is hard for me to say.. I've seen them live and it was fantastic, and I love 79% of their other material. <BR/> This CD just sounds like Sum 41 if they were stoners and promiscuous.
