Significant Other [Explicit Lyrics]

( 34 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
"I'd love to be the one to disappoint you when I don't fall down," sings Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, the great white dope turned alt-rap hero. He may represent the voice of the angst-ridden, downtrodden suburban teens who buy his band's records, but he's also speaking to the world at large, especially those who find Limp Bizkit's testosterone-tweaked marriage of metal, goth, and rap bereft of content. SIGNIFICANT OTHER is all about satisfying fans and stumping detractors, which the band does by balancing the isolated, postadolescent introspect of gloomy, downcast cuts like "9 Teen 90 Nine" and "Re-arranged" with the Animal House abandon of metal-rap hybrids like "Nookie." ...

"I'd love to be the one to disappoint you when I don't fall down," sings Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, the great white dope turned alt-rap hero. He may represent the voice of the angst-ridden, downtrodden suburban teens who buy his band's records, but he's also speaking to the world at large, especially those who find Limp Bizkit's testosterone-tweaked marriage of metal, goth, and rap bereft of content. SIGNIFICANT OTHER is all about satisfying fans and stumping detractors, which the band does by balancing the isolated, postadolescent introspect of gloomy, downcast cuts like "9 Teen 90 Nine" and "Re-arranged" with the Animal House abandon of metal-rap hybrids like "Nookie." This tension-release formula gives their album a strong sense of thematic flow as Durst leads guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto, and DJ Lethal through a set that maps out the bipolar pain of today's teenage wasteland as well as any rock out there. And just in case you think the hip-hop nation takes these guys for a bunch of chumps, check out "N2gether Now," which finds DJ Lethal's RZA-style track and Durst's rhymes deftly complementing the Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Limp Bizkit made their reputation through hard work, touring the hell out of their debut album Three Dollar Bill Y'All and thereby elevating themselves to the popularity status of their similarly rap-inflected, alt-metal mentors Korn. With their second album, Significant Other, they come close to reaching Korn's artistic level; at the very least, it's considerably more ambitious and multi-dimensional than Three Dollar Bill. Limp Bizkit, of course, hasn't abandoned their testosterone-overloaded signature sound, they've just built around it. There are flourishes of neo-psychedelia on pummeling metal numbers and there are swirls of strings, even crooning, at the most unexpected background. All of it simply enhances the force of their rap-metal attack, which can get a little tedious if it's unadorned. Not so coincidentally, the enlarged sonic palette also serves as emotional coloring for Fred Durst's lyrics. He broke up with his longtime girlfriend -- his Significant Other, if you will -- during the writing of the album, and his anguish is apparent throughout the record, as almost every song is infused with the guilt, anger, and regret that was churned up in the wake of separation. That, however, gives the impression that this is an alt-metal Blood on the Tracks. It's not. Nevertheless, it does have more emotional weight than Three Dollar Bill, along with more effective, adventurous music. More importantly, it balances these new concerns with trace elements of their juvenile humor along with the overpowering aggro rap-metal that is their stock in trade. Which makes it a rare artistic leap forward that will still please audiences that just want more of the same.

    Limp Bizkut kicks ass!

    This is a great cd and has some terrific songs on it. I love it! Fred Durst is such a hottie, but that's not why their music is so great. He's even a better lead singer than he is hot!

    THE BEST CD EVER

    this album is the best lb cd. it's so much better than three dollar bill y'all. Three dollar bills songs are great but some are pothetic. on this cd every single song is good. With songs like just like this, im broke, 9 teen 90 nine, and trust? you'll be listening to this cd more than any other cd on the world.

    i didnt like this cd very much

    i didnt like significant other very much just because it seemed like fred dursts voice gets more and more annoying, he has a whiney high pitched voice maybe thats appealing to some people but i cant stand it. i thought wes did very well as usuall but it just seemed like the music was missing something. when limp bizkit went on tour with korn there was a certain vibe i guess, it was a hard hitting album and then they came out with significant other which just seemed lighter. theres more of a hip hop influence on this album which is cool but i dont like it. i think that some of the songs on the album sound the same and im not all for that. i think overall this cd wasn't as good as it could have been

    LIMP for every MOOD!!!!

    Limp Bizkit is the best drug for all bad days. ''Significant Other'' is the best rap/rock album out there today!!!! Their anticipated third album, ''Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water'' will no doubt top ''Significant Other''.

    Limp Bizkit's done it again!

    Limp Bizkit's second album Signigicant Other surpasses Three Dollar Bill Yall$. Fred Durst is a great lyricist and along with band memebers Wes Borland (guitar), Sam Rivers (bass), John Otto (drums), and DJ Lethal (turntables), he has made the singles off this album the best. If you've only heard the songs on the radio and liked them, then definately go out and buy this record, it's totally worth it. At the end of the cd there are also some secret songs and messages. In one message you might recognize ex-mtv vj, Matt Pinfield, cursing off radio. If you don't think you will be allowed to buy the album because of the language, then buy it edited. It might not be completely the same but Limp Bizkit's message still comes across loud and clear!
