Their best album yet! Finally something to rival Deftones
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 07/11/2010 17:18:08
I had honestly thought that after their last album Blue-Sky Research in 2005 they had died with lots of other nu-metal bands that faded post 2000. This album therefore came as quite a pleasent surprise. Not only that, but it's better than anything they've ever produced in my opinion. Every song on the album is different and great in it's own way and nothing is overly shouty or coarse like some of the songs on previous albums. It flows well, is greatly melodic and still makes its powerful mark. I love Deftones and it is great to see another band producing something that finally comes close to complementing their following. Taproot have taken what they were always best at and refined it to make a beast of an album! Buy PTF and lets see this band go on to join the greats!

These guys have never really got where they deserved. There was a huge fight to sign them and since then it's been a bit of a slow decline. I loved their first two albums and since then it's been a bit disappointing really. This however is a MASSIVE return to form. Usually when a band says they are going to return to their roots they fail spectacularly but Taproot not only pull this off but have come up with something that rivals anything they have ever produced.
Right from the opener Now Rise it is obvious that the old Taproot sound that mix of melody and aggression is back. The first truly great track is third in Fractured Everything I Said Was True then there is the crushing opening riff of Stolage the haunting Words Dont Mean A Thing .
I could go on but I think you are getting the point here there is not a weak song on it. Taproot bare comparison to The Deftones in many ways and whilst everyone is raving about their new album which is indeed very good. I think this is even better.
