This record explores a lot of different heavy sounds that were popular in 2000/early 2001, but doesn't really have a clear-cut identity of its own. A few songs here sound like a less cringy version of Disturbed's synth-laden pop metal debut "The Sickness" (the catchy "Isolated" being a key example). Others including "Sunshine" and "Goodbye" have that heavy Alice In Chains worship sound that was popularized by Godsmack, while songs such as "Sleep" could pass as unrealised Deftones B-sides. Finally there are songs like "Waste" and "Blow Up" which are basically just Pantera with keyboards and clearer hooks.
