Review: Asylum

“Asylum” opens with an eerie dose of cello and acoustic guitar, before blasting off. This is classic Disturbed, at the same level of energy and creativity they have been at since “The Sickness”. Although, “Asylum”, the deluxe version, carries remakes of some of their famous hits from previous albums. Power, infuriation, conflict, sacrifice and greed are themes that color all their lyrics. One break from their usual style, that I really am impressed with, is the cover of “These City Walls”, a famous U2 song that I loved as a kids. The cool thing about that is, it’s still fun to sing along to.
I guess what I am glad to see, is that Disturbed has not hit the pitfall that a lot of bands succumb to. They have not, through radio play, become too generic in sound. They still retain their identity as Disturbed of the “Ten Thousand Fists” era. I look forward to seeing what their next release is like, if Disturbed keeps evolving.

8/10
