Overview

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.
