As the second album in my 52 Albums or Burn!-project I went with Disturbed’s (the site is useless without Flash) 2000 release The Sickness. After a while I realized that I’d heard a couple of the songs before, mainly on the fabulous Internet radio station radio.wazee.
Disturbed plays monotonous, dark and boring rock. Most of the songs sound the same, a little bit of vocal, a little bit of primal screams. They are currently looking for a new bass player, so I guess Fuzz (bass player on The Sickness) was thrown out of the band/quit/died/got bored and left.
As you might understand by now, I don’t like this album. Could be a nice one if this is your style of music, but I guess it’s not for me, although I might copy one or two of the songs to my MP3-player just to have something different on it in case I need some songs to scream to.
Oh-wa-a-a-a! Oh-wa-a-a-a! Oh-Oh! Oh-Oh! Oh-Oh!
Disturbed - The Sickness gets 1 out of 6.

by the way, i was just wondering why you’re rating them out of 6, as opposed to the usual 5 or 10?
I have started a new and better life. from now on I will get out of bed early and study hard. I know I can do it. :-)
Ian: The rating is kind of like the score on a dice, a scoring scheme very popular in the tabloids and pretty much everywhere in Norway, I dunno how it’s like in other countries. And it suits a set of pictures I’m about to rip of some online newspaper and use instead of number 1 to 6.
klas, man, why would you do such a thing? it’s just so much fun, sleeping in and slacking off! :P
more seriously, good luck with that, and good luck as well to you, vegard, with the rest of this project. :)
I’ve got a question (mostly for V. since he probably got some hands on experience, but don’t let that stop anybody else from answering.. ) ..
I’m thinking about buying a new mobile phone, since my old one is old (it’s a 6210 .. say no more, eh?) and lacks Bluetooth (I want to get online with my Tungsten|T3) .. What should I buy? I don’t want to use to much money.. So far I’ve thought about the Siemens S55 (which will cost me about 280nok) and the SE T610 (going for around 1000nok).. Is the camera and better screen worth the money?? Or is there som other alternative I haven’t thought of??
- in order to finish my bachelor degree this spring I need to enroll in a shitload of classes.
- I managed to get a parttime job helping new students here at the dorm
- My scuba diving activity is likely to increase
To sum it all up I have lots of things to do and rather limited time in doing them. I therefore need to be much more structured than I have been earlier.
To sum it up: I’ve got no real recommendations for you. It’s a jungle out there, man!
Ian: Thanks, buying a new CD today. Or most likely tomorrow.
