Overview

Title of Record

Like post-grunge dirge rockers from Tool to Korn, Filter make music you'd hardly want to bring home to meet Mommy. On TITLE OF RECORD, singer Richard Patrick alternates from an evil post-Ozzy blather to a skybound pretty-boy quaver, often to compelling effect. The marvelous downward spiral "Welcome to the Fold" and 4/4 pummel of "Captain Bligh" pound as hard as anything spewed forth from the Family Values scene and are elevated by catchy melodic refrains, a detail most metal bands don't bother with. Like Cheap Trick reborn for the age of Y2K, techno-infused crotch-rock like "The Best Things" is about as happily arty as this kind of dunderhead manna can get. The acoustic-guitar-driven "Take a Picture" risks derailing the rush by bringing back bad memories of '80s metal's sensitive side, and Patrick's Reznorian vocals on "Cancer" sound -- no doubt intentionally -- like he just contracted the disease. But these detours hardly ruin what is, for the most part, a throbbing, nasty good time.

I am not familiar with Filter, but when I heard the song, 'Take a Picture', I loved it!! What made me love it more is I heard a remake of the same song, but it was a dance/techno version. I got the CD and the CD is excellent!!! Anyway, if someone can help me and let me know who did the remake, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I love this cd it brings you on a piercingly good romp threw several different feels and tempos that I haven't heard in music in a long time. Buy it! Take my picture isn't the album but it is a great song and shows the bands diversity and talent. A + in my book.
