Limp Bizkit is a nu metal band that started in 1995 and is often credited with the popularization of the genre. The band is currently signed to Geffen Records and was previously signed to Interscope Records; both labels are part of the Universal Music Group. Their albums have sold over 50 million copies worldwide.

Limp Bizkit consists of vocalist Fred Durst, guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto (Rivers’ cousin), and turntablist / samples player DJ Lethal. Wes Borland was with them for their first three albums but left in 2001, to be replaced by Mike Smith (formerly of the band Snot). However, in August 2004, Borland returned to Limp Bizkit. Following the release of The Unquestionable Truth EP in 2005, he parted with the band once more. In February 2009, Durst and Borland announced the return of Limp Bizkit’s original line-up, bringing with it the possibility of

LIMP BIZKIT Significant Other

Unitron
Limp Bizkit is one of those bands that everyone loves to hate, and it was real easy to hop on the bandwagon in my early days of browsing internet music sites before my love of music became what it is now. They went from one of the biggest metal bands of the late 90's/early 00's to one of the most hated, but along with the nu metal revival has come a slow but noticeable reversal of general opinion. I've since given them an actual chance without bias, and Significant Other is a great late 90's metal album.

It's a lot of fun and even funny sometimes, but it's metal, not classical music. It's not supposed to be pretentious or refined, at least not with my tastes. I just want well-written songs with great playing, hooks, and grooves, and Bizkit certainly delivers. Fred Durst's hilariously blunt lyrics just add to the whole badass party vibe of the whole thing. As much as I love lyrical poets like Neil Fallon, Spider One, and Karl Hyde, often a simple commanding performance can be just as good.

The two most memorable songs are definitely the classic singles Nookie and Break Stuff, and they weren't so popular for no reason. Nookie is a perfect combination of the funk metal and hip hop sides of nu metal, and Break Stuff is just a song that has to really be heard. Few songs get me as pumped, there's just so much charisma and personality in Durst's vocals and Wes Borland's riffs have such force. 9 Teen 90 Nine, the pure hip hop of N 2 Gether Now, and Trust? are a few more favorites.

Classic stuff, Jumpdafuckup and have some fun.

This has to be one of the most controversial albums ever. One quick look on it's ratings shows reactions from total hate to adoration.

Well I have to agree that Limp Bizkit is not the most influential or original band but back there in the late 90's and the beginning of the century they were probably the hottest band on the earth. After it's groundbreaking predecessor "The Significant Other", the expectations for "Chocolate Starfish and The Hot Dog Flavored Water" were for another masterpiece. But did LB achieve that? My answer is Yes! Compared to SO, CSATHDFW is a bit more polished and commercial maybe but songs like My Generation, Full Nelson, Rollin' and Take A Look Around are still kick ass rockers. Alongside with them we have another bunch of hits - My Way, Livin' It Up and the great hip-hop tune Getcha Groove On. So let's put all the hatred aside. LB are great musicians and Fred Durst is really great vocalist. After all CSATHDFW is not composed to show complex songwriting or musicianship, it's all about partying.

Featured both in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die" and Q Magazine's listing of "50 Worst Albums of All Time", this is obviously a very controversial album. Of course I haven't read the entry in the 1001 book, so it could be included for the supposed comedic value, but I doubt it, since honestly speaking this album does have its share of enjoyable moments.

Being really long as hell, there's a magnificent amount of forgettable padding on the album, but credit should be given where it's due. Hot Dog's profanity-laden verses may be juvenile, but the rhythm underneath it and Wes Borland's guitar stylings are really tasty stuff of foot-tapping head-nodding goodness, and My Generation's heavy pounding rhythm manages to carry the song to the finish line. Rollin' must have been a devastating concert hit among the faithful at the time and Livin' It Up, probably the only rock song ever explicitly dedicated to Ben Stiller, has some more groovy instrumental work during the verses but a disappointingly boring chorus. The One keeps bringing the instrumentalists out in a fine manner, but otherwise is very forgettable as a song. Take a Look Around, the Mission Impossible 2 Theme, was the reason I bought this album when it came out and it's still hands down the best complete song of the bunch, quoting the MI theme melodies to great effect.

Apart from the surprisingly soulful Hold On, the rest of the album varies from forgettable to almost repulsive, but all in all I'd say I value this one higher than the general view seems to be. But a great song, a couple of pretty good ones and a nice bit of instrumental work here and there isn't really enough for a 75 minute album. Recommendable for hardcore Nu Metal enthusiasts only, other interested parties can seek the Take A Look Around single.
