Chapter V

There are few CDs I can listen to completely without skipping through songs. Staind has given me a full CD to listen to. The band’s new album, Chapter V, was eagerly awaited by fans after the first single, “Right Here,” hit the radio waves. Like the past four CDs in Staind’s 10-year career, this one is packed with explosions of passion and anger as expressed by the distinctive voice of frontman Aaron Lewis. Labeled “Nu Metal,” Staind is unlike any of the one-hit rock bands emerging today. Whether you want to rock out or have a good cry, Chapter V has a variety of songs to feed every mood.
