Better than 2018’s Evolution but also different than that. There is solid guitarwork and they focus on some short solos, you can hear decent tracks and rhythm in a song like Unstoppable. This is Disturbed at their most political. Making their voices heard on corrupt politicians, cancel culture, etc. The problem? It’s all really dumb. I mean it, this is the vaguest, most simplistic writing about “another bad man” and “you can’t stop us all” type lyrics. The anger in Draiman’s voice doesn’t match what he’s saying. You can’t sound that tough when you are screaming about the ba ba ba bad man. Many songs sound similar and the more you listen, the more you realize it’s shallow in their messages. Hopefully, THAT won’t be too divisive of a statement. 5/10.
