      Intermittent but decent

      Limp Bizkit's preposterously named Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavoured Water is a largely dismissed album because, admittedly, it does feature a lot of unremittingly stupid and inspidly brainless songs, but it's also got some insanely catchy songs on it. After their solid album Significant Other, it is a shame that their quality has decreased considerably, but this does have a few quality tracks, if also a bunch of inane ones too. It's quite a guilty pleasure for me - basically, so bad it's good.

      I must admit to not having known Bizkit from the beginning - I found out about them when most people did, when they released the song Take A Look Around, which was used on the soundtrack to Mission Impossible II. It's a brilliant rendition of a classic theme and helped propel them from being a fairly obscure rock band to one of the biggest on the planet.

      The music in general on the album is quite varied, although it'd probably best be labelled as "rock" or "nu metal". Fred Durst gets a lot of stick for his voice being annoying - and whilst it does go quite high sometimes unnecessarily, I think it's more the lyrics that are a problem than his voice.

      There are so many well known and famous songs on the album - perhaps mostly famously is the party tune Rollin', which is guaranteed to get a room head banging. Also, My Way was another hit single and was used at WWE WrestleMania 17 where it became popular back in 2001.

      The album has 17 tracks in total, ranging largely in quality, from the "classics", to ones like Hot Dog that are incredibly divisive, where Fred swears a LOT, and copies some Nine Inch Nails lyrics. There's also a hidden track where he talks to Ben Stiller which is rather pointless.

      It's fairly intermittent, but there are some insanely catchy, heavy songs on here, and it's an album that's sure to please its target audience, and then some.

      -

      Limp Bizkit is a rap, rock, metal, alternative group who formed in 1994 of Lead singer Fred Durst, Guitarist Wes Borland, Drummer John Otto, Dj Lethal and Bassist Sam Rivers.

      Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water was released in 2000 and was the first album that I listened to by the band even though it is the bands 3rd album.

      The track listing for Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water is:
      1. Intro
      2. Hot Dog
      3. My Generation
      4. Full Nelson
      5. My Way
      6. Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)
      7. Livin' It Up
      8. The One
      9. Getcha Groove On
      10. Take a Look Around
      11. It'll Be OK
      12. Boiler
      13. Hold On
      14. Rollin (remix)
      15. Outro

      There are also some really famous guest stars on this album, including Redman, Xzibit and DMX.

      Favourite Tracks
      Rollin
      This was one of the more popular Limp Bizkit songs, its just a really fun and funky song. This song did really well on the charts when it was released, and is maybe Limp Bizkits best known song.

      My Way
      This is a nicely mixed song about doing things your own way and not being worried about what other people think, if you like Rollin there is a good chance youll also like this song, it is my favourite off the album.

      I can honestly say that there are no tracks on this album that I dont like, however I tend to skip the intro and outro when I am listening to it.

      Overall I think this is a great album and if you like rock, mental, rap genre music then there is a good chance you will like it. I think it was well worth the money spent and is really worth a listen to.

        Limp Bizkit's third album

        "Chocolate Starfish and The Hot Dog Flavored Water" came out in 2000, at the peak of the Nu-Metal phase in the genre. It was Limp Bizkit's third album, and was considered to be their peak of success too as they hit with many big single from this album alone. Here you have Fred Durst lead the band into the new Millennium to show that it was time for them to take over, and some with the most extreme stuff we have heard from the ban up to this point as they have finally found the perfect mix of Rap and Metal to bring in the greatest range of listeners.

        1. "Intro"

        2. "Hot Dog"

        To get things going, we have a track which as Fred Durst hype you up by introducing what thy have to offer this time around and this is done by having him list all the things in this life which he has a problem with before they are able to get to the stage where the band can come together for a massive showing of their skills at bringing the extreme Metal.

        **Five Stars**

        3. "My Generation"

        This is a hardcore track from them and one which shows them doing things in the way we known them best for. It has them focus their attention about talking on just how they are living for themselves, and aren't all that interested in trying to impress those who fit into other era and phases of music. They let loose and tell older generations that if they don't like it, they shouldn't be here.

        **Five Stars**

        4. "Full Nelson"

        You have them capitalising off the huge following they gained by having their track "Rollin'" feature as the theme to the then WWF wrestler, The Undertaker by doing a track which has them inputting their care-free mindset by raging with an exciting display of them getting down to some hyped Metal and Fred Dust directing their rhymes to fit around how they will take on all opposition with wrestling moves. It is a banger, and keeps the flow going here.

        **Five Stars**

        5. "My Way"

        Here you find more of Fred Durst and DJ Lethal's Hip Hop influences here as this one begins with a little Eric B. & Rakim-inspired work before they get into it. This is one of the best offerings from them, and has them taking on a popular form of building things up through a pretty calm verse before a massive breakdown at the chorus. It is a killer track and shows that they really know how to construct their tracks well to make up what they do in this case.

        **Five Stars**

        6. "Rollin'"

        This is a track which most will know. It probably lasts as their most well-known track, and is one of the best displays of Nu-Metal working to its optimum potential with them taking on as much Hip Hop as they possible could with full Raps and a heavy DJ Lethal presence in the production in this case to drive them on this killer jam.

        **Five Stars**

        7. "Livin' It Up"

        Off the hype of the last one, you have a joint which has Durst throw out a dedication to Ben Stiller as he gets into more Rapcore in this one, and I felt that his flows were exciting in this one due to the way he chose to use them by directing them topically and showing the Old School aspect of this all and where he has taken much of his choices from when guiding the raps as he talks of how people should live their life and no concentrate on how it is short..

        **Four Stars**

        8. "The One"

        Here you have a pretty big one and it seems to fit right in here on the album as one that seems to get them doing things in a manner which is likely to be enjoyed by all. It sees that Durst relaxes things by singing through it, and so it calms things down greatly as we see a shift in what is done in the music, and I felt it was a valued recoding.

        **Four Stars**

        9. "Getcha Grove On"

        With Xzibit on his side, you know that Durst couldn't really lose things, and this just doesn't happen as you find that with the West Coast rapper aiding him along the way, you have them mood of the whole album changing dramatically as they choose to get right into the feel of the Hip hop end of what they do and almost ignore where they primarily work.

        **Four Stars**

        10. "Take A Look Around"

        Sampling the 'Mission: Impossible' them, this finds them doing a killer track where they make the most out of what they are capable of with their talents. It is one of the best one from the album, and stands out as a single from the record with them going for the type of progressive work with them gradually building things up with a series of transitions before pulling the band together in the most exciting way they were able to produce.

        **Five Stars**

        11. "It'll Be OK"

        You have more big Nu-Metal form them on this one as they appear to take on a similar kind of form as what we have seen from the likes of the track prior to this one and what was brought in "My Way" as Durst delves into the melodic flows and makes these guide him through the record as we go from a tense, yet quiet verse to a big breakdown later on.

        **Four Stars**

        12. "Boiler"

        Released as the final single off the thing, this is an epic seven minute track from them which has them showing that they are able to do the Metal work just as well as they can with the Hip Hop side of the music. It felt that it was executed fairly well, and this can be seen in the fact that they don't bore you at any point during this lengthy one. However, I felt that it did uncover the repetition which is found on within the album.

        **Four Stars**

        13. "Hold On"

        I would have to say that this track isn't as strong as the rest of what you find on the album, and especially when comparing it to what is found in tunes prior to it, it just doesn't live up to these expectations as the pace is dropped and they perform a track which just isn't exciting enough to really make you take that much notice of. It acts as a filler, and serves no other purpose here.

        **Two Stars**

        14. "Rollin'" (Urban Assault Vehicle)"

        You have their most successful track on this one remixed by Swizz Beatz as he takes over the production and from these great adaptations to the feel of it, you have Method Man (someone who worked on previous work from the band) as well as Redman and DMX rapping with Durst as he alters his first and second verses for this Hip Hop takeover. I didn't think it was as good as the original, but it is a big one you can' ignore (especially due to Meth's input).

        **Four Stars**

        15. "Outro"

        This was the best album for the band, and although it suffers from a little repetition in the production, I felt that towards the end where they choose to alter things a little by putting in some drastic changes in the beats, they amended this. I understand that many may not like much of what done, especially when seeing how they have clearly taking things in a mainstream direction here, it still is a big one.

          worth a listen for old times

          Chocolate starfish and the hot dog flavored water was limp bizkits third studio album. Released in october 2000 it sold over 1 million copies in a week. Chocolate starfish is the bands firsts melodic album but still in every way rap metal. From this album there were 5 singles taking which were, My generation, world famous Rollin, take alook around (which feature as the mission imposible 2 theme music), My way and boiler. this album also contains the song hot dog which features the word f**k 48 times. The band has just resently reformed to play a string of festivals including Download festival with the original line up. Lets just hope they play the all time classics as well as new stuff!!! my overall rating for this album is 4 stars as it is g ood to listen to but after afew plays does get a bit boring but worth listening to!!!

N 2 I was never a Limp Bizkit fan but I heard one of their songs and curiousity got the better of me and I just had to buy the album as I was interested to whether the rest of the album was as good as the few songs I had heard before buying it. I thought the album was very good value as it has a great array of tracks which vary in their styles some of them have even been used as a soundtrack for some of the blockbuster films of the year of album release ie. Mission Impossible 2 and most recently "Rollin" was used as a music score for the re-make of Rollerball. Limp Bizkit has released atleast 3 albums to my knowledge but whether they are fans of or not most people would be able to associate this album with Limp Bizkit more than any of the other albums they have released to to date. I think this CD is very good value for the current R.R.P of £8.99 which is pretty impressive for a 2CD Album.

            The song is so much the exception that it sounds as if it was hijacked from another album. The rest of this stickered disc is atrocious. A whopping 122 f-words lead the charge of obscenities. Cocky and uncaring, frontman Fred Durst promotes fast living (drugs, alcohol, women, vandalism, etc.) on "Livin’ It Up." Judging from other tracks, violence is apparently part of the high life. Cuts speak of "knockin’ faggots unconscious" ("Getcha Groove On") and berate an authority figure while asserting independence ("My Way"). "Full Nelson" threatens a trash-talking individual and boasts of full-blown anarchy ("We’ve got the torch now/We’ve got the fire to burn this muthaf---er down"). "Boiler" and "It’ll Be Okay" convey hopelessness. On the latter, the singer contemplates suicide following a breakup ("Just want to kill myself for you/I wonder just how sympathetic you’ll be"). Songs also claim, "In high school I dealt only with the classroom sluts" ("Rollin’") and allude to animalistic sex ("Closer"). Limp Bizkit’s range of emotions on Chocolate Starfish stretches from hedonistic highs to suicidal lows. Obscenities are everywhere. So why did it go platinum in a week? On one cut, Durst calls himself "an idiot, a loser, a microphone abuser" which, sadly, is what’s hot these days.

              Limp Bizkit are a rock group which actually been around for a very long time, but to be honest, before Mission Impossible 2, I hadn’t even heard of them. Yet with this song, they set off on a high, a high which would last form nearly a year, before their inevitable fall, and it was this album which picked up the winnings. Well the name Chocolate Starfish and Hotdog flavored water, it isn’t really the most common of names, and although a little random, it shows a bit of creativity, rather than going for a cheesy title which pop groups such a S Club 7, or Hearsay probably have. The actually music, is a cross between heavy metal, and rock, and then with the unique voice of Fred Durst, it becomes something different, more like rapping…but with a twist. Personally my favorite is probably their most famous rock song rolling, it is the sort of lyrics which just simply stick in your head, although I also like My Way. This probably isn’t really the sort of music which everyone likes, and I fell that many people bought their album, and listened to their tracks just due to peer pressure at my school. Also a few friends and I were going to see them perform, in Britain, during their European tour, but Fred injured his back, which was a MAJOR disappointment. What’s worse, was that following their worse track, boiler room, they then split up and when their separate ways, but then that is a fate that seems to hit many successful bands these days. In total I think there are 17 tracks, including the intro, and last special track, (in which you hear Fred Durst laughing,) and they are all fairly similar quality, whilst not all being the same, (hint hint Sum 41.) Which generally are the ingredients for a good album, and I feel that all their success was fully deserved, even though it is by far the worst of the Limp Bizkit albums

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I bought this album during my 'buy a CD no matter who it is, or what it is just for the sake of buying a CD' phase. In other words, I had money in my pocket at the time and it was as if I had just discovered music as I purchased a whole manner of tosh most of which I have yet to listen to twice. Although this album was bought during this period I will say that I have listened to it more than once, sometimes just out of sheer boredom but I listened to it all the same. If you were expecting me to write a pro or anti- Limp Bizkit opinion here then sadly you are reading the wrong opinion. I will try my best to write un unbiased, objective opinion not necessarily about the band but about the music they made on for this particular album. Fred Durst's band have received a lot of negative hype over the past few years and they say all publicity is good publicity as it was all this negativity that lead me to buying this album, to see for myself. That and the fact it was going cheap at the time! Limp seem to be one of those bands you either love or hate, there doesn't appear to be much middle ground. Perhaps then, I am the exception because they fail to evoke such strong emotions from me. Anyway, enough of my babbling and on to the album itself.... Track 1 if you can even call it a track is merely an intro (imaginatively titled "Intro" ) that comprises of a computer-enhanced voice saying "this is not a test....." for 1 minute and eighteen seconds. In my mind this is hardly creative and merely acts as filler. However, in comparison to the second track "Hotdog" the intro sounds like a John Lennon classic. "Hotdog" you see just seems to be Limp Bizkit trying to enter the Guinness Book of Records for how many times you can say "f*ck" is just under a four minute song. This classy song boasts a chorus that goes something like this... "I wanna f*ck you like an animal, I wanna burn you on the ins
                ide, You may think that I'm your perfect drug, But be aware that nothing you do will bring me closer to you." It's songs like these that make me realise why Limp are despised so much by certain music fans. Track three, "My Generation" is hardly subtle either. Amazingly enough this song somehow got released even though the word "f**k" crops up more times in this chorus than it does in Hotdog's. The following track "Full Nelson" is totally unmemorable to me, literally as I cannot even remember how the songs goes. Credit where credit is due, as track 5, "My Way" which features a sample from the song "My Melody" is quite catchy and one of the best songs on this album. The next song, "Rollin' (air raid vehicle)" surprisingly got to spend a couple of weeks at the peak of the UK charts. It's quite appealing in it's own way, but I've heard it so many times now than it's attractiveness to me has disintegrated. Track 7, entitled "Livin' It Up" is alright I guess. However, Durst's lyrics about skate boarding and spray painting do seem rather contrived. I cant help but feel that Durst it trying to convince the whole world that he is still a punk teenager growing up in Florida but by taking one look at him, it is easy to tell that his youth has long since passed him by. Something I think Mr Durst doesn't want to realise. If you can get past the rather silly lyrics about the "Starfish Navigation System" the best part of this song comes at the end. Lol, I don't mean that how it sounds. "The One" is the title of track 8 and though not a classic by any means this is one of my favourite songs off this album. Of course it of not a ballad (this is Limp Bizkit you know) but it does cover the subject of looking for your "Mrs Right" which to Limp is still a rather untouched upon subject. Free of gra
                phic swearing and screaming this tune is much more mellow and dare I say somewhat sensitive? "Getcha Groove On" featuring an appearance from Xzibit on vocals this is Limp?s way of reminding us that they do still lean towards the "hip hop" flavour, as if we could ever forget. The combination of rock and rap it not always very successful and this track proves it. A totally forgettable song. Next up is the song that I probably bought this album in the first place. "Take A Look Around", a remix of the original Mission Impossible theme tune is the song that launched Limp into worldwide fame. This is my favourite song on the album and while it may not "technically" be great, it has a thumping bass line and is still good to "rock out" to from time to time. Up next, is "It'll Be Ok". A decent song was a nice sound to it which is sadly ruined to some extent by Durst's tasteless lyrics. All is fine until the pre-chorus when Fred's screams of, "you're f*cking up my whole life" make you remember that this is Limp after all, and "nice" songs are not what they're all about. Would "you're MESSING up my whole life" not have been macho enough? The next song on this album is the recently released "Boiler". While not a bad song it doesn't really offer anything new and I was rather surprised when they released it. I will say that I did not realise until I started writing this opinion that the song is 7 minutes long. It does pass rather quickly. "Hold On" brings us up to track 13. Featuring and co-written by Scott Weiland this ia another slower, more relaxed tune but not really as memorable as "The One" and "It'll Be Ok". Not bad though. The second version of "Rollin'" entitled the "Urban Assault Vehicle" is the next offering. It features contributions from Redman, Method Ma
                n and DMX but still I prefer the other version to this "hip hop" one. Like "Getcha Groove On" this is very unmemorable and just serves to pad out the album in my view. Finally, the last "song" on the album follows on from the intro and is ingeniously called "Outro"! It basically features Limp have a nearly 10 minute conversation with their boy, actor Ben Stiller. Totally pointless edition to the album with Stiller just stroking Limp's ego by telling them how great they are. A poor ending to the album and something which should have been left off. All-in-all this album is not great but it?s not really terrible either. It is kind of a thumbs in the middle job. Limp seem to be confused as to what they are. They so desperately want to keep to their Hip Hop roots yet as this album proves their combination of rock and rap is not very successful. They'd be best served choosing a style that suites them and sticking to it. I'm not personally attacking the man here but having Fred Dust as their front man does not really do the band any favours. His lyrics are often stupid and childish, he is not a great rapper, or singer come to that. I can sort of understand how his anti-establishment messages appeal to the younger generation but since puberty has passed me by I do not share their enthusiasm for him. Another problem Limp have is that so much of their music sounds the same. For instance, "My Generation", "My Way" "Livin' It Up", "Take A Look Around" and "Boiler" all follow the same song structure. You know, a couple of verses of rather controlled music, with the chorus being a bit louder. Than towards the end of the song, the music changes pace and becomes quieter only for Durst to start screaming in your ear again louder than ever around 30 seconds later. It worked on Take A Look Around but it's become an all too familiar pattern now.
                Overall Grade: C+

                  Disadvantages

                  Other than Britney Spears, it's hard to think of a more critic-proof band than Limp Bizkit, who have -- however inexplicably -- become megastars based on a few clever songs (their thunderous remake of "Faith" among them), a baby-faced pit bull of a lead singer, and a lot of luck. Their latest, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water -- which will likely do nothing to stop their inexorable rise -- is a bit of a mess: Coming about 18 months after Significant Other, Hot Dog was obviously cobbled together in a relative hurry to capitalize on the band's momentum, and it feels like it. That said, the record adopts Significant's thrash-rap-mixed-with-ballads formula, to sometimes better effect. "Hold On" is actually semi-melodic, with something approaching harmony vocals; "My Generation" is enormously entertaining, except for its lyrical positioning of singer Fred Durst as someone deeply concerned about the "Youth of Today" (tag line: "You don't give a fuck about me and my generation" -- though Durst has never seemed to either, until now); and "It'll Be Okay," which follows the standard Limp drone-into-thrash formula, isn't half-bad. There's little in the way of cohesion or artistic forethought here, and some of the tracks are just bad, though nothing is as surpassingly awful as lead single "Rollin'," its shout-outs overly reminiscent of "Bawitdaba." Kid Rock is one of the few artists who isn't subjected to the Bizkits' withering lyrics: Christina Aguilera, Durst himself (dubbed "A redneck fucker from Jacksonville," which probably about covers it), and Eminem are insulted with great energy. But no one here receives quite the roasting of poor Trent Reznor, who is both abused and imitated on "Hot Dog." You'll never be able to listen to "Closer" in the same way again.

                    Other than Britney Spears, it's hard to think of a more critic-proof band than Limp Bizkit, who have -- however inexplicably -- become megastars based on a few clever songs (their thunderous remake of "Faith" among them), a baby-faced pit bull of a lead singer, and a lot of luck. Their latest, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water -- which will likely do nothing to stop their inexorable rise -- is a bit of a mess: Coming about 18 months after Significant Other, Hot Dog was obviously cobbled together in a relative hurry to capitalize on the band's momentum, and it feels like it. That said, the record adopts Significant's thrash-rap-mixed-with-ballads formula, to sometimes better effect.

                      This album is quite a favourite of mine. I must have listened to it at least 100 times! I am quite aware that most people think that it is lame or not even a form of music but I think that people are entitled to their own opinions. The album has a parental advisory explicit content warning so for any parents out there that don't really want their children listening to bad language, foul lyrics etc. I would warn you now not to let your child get this CD. The album contains: Track 1: intro 2: hot dog 3: my generation 4: full nelson 5: my way 6: rollin' (air raid vehicle) 7: livin? it up 8: the one 9: getcha groove on 10: take a look around 11: it'll be ok 12: boiler 13: hold on 14: rollin' (urban assault vehicle) 15: outro Limp Bizkit formed six years ago in Jacksonville, America. They were brought together by Fred Durst, a former Navy plebe turned tattoo artist who has been writing raps since he was 14. Limp Bizkit is still going strong and are as popular as ever. "Chocolate Covered Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavoured Water" was released in 2000 and is still one of the most popular CDs among the younger generation. The album costs around £10 to buy but the cost does vary on where you buy it. It can be bought in most music shops and is still disliked by most parents. (I know that my mum hates me listening to it). Limp Bizkit are a controversial group and are quite different to most groups. The group members are: Fred Durst Sam Rivers Jon Otto Wes Borland And DJ Lethal In the CD you can also find the lyrics for all the songs included in the album. I warn you now that they?re music can be taken quite offensively. It is not to everybody?s liking and should not be taken too seriously (although I can see why most adults/parents don?t like the
                      ir children listening to it). You can visit the Limp Bizkit website. Just go to: www.limpbizkit.com and you can find out all about the band, the individual members, upcoming tours, recent tours and everything you didn?t already know about the album.

                        With out a shadow of a doubt this albulm is limp bizkits best! From start to finish this album has something about it, which puts it in with all my fav albums. Following limp bizkits previus album significant other limp where looking to bring out san album that would blow our minds and i would have to say well done limp bizkit as they have done that they have not ripped us off like a lot of groups do these days, in this album you get decent music from start to finish! track list: 1. Intro- This is a typical start to a limp bizkit song, it lets you know that limp bizkit is in the house! 2. Hot Dog- This is all about the "F" word with sentences in the song such as it's a F*cked up world in a F*cked up place this song is funny to listen to i think he says the "f" word about 60 times overall in this one song! 3. My Generation- This was the first song to be realesed of the album and i have to say this is probably one of my fav tracks as it has got awesome drumming awesome guitar playing and awesome lyrics a good song, if only more of limps stuff was like this! 4. Full Nelson-This is a good song with a good beat and rythem to it all the way throught and the singing or rapping in it is done well as well. 5. My Way-Every one by now has heard of this song "my way or the highway" a very catchy song with a slower rythem to it you have to like this one. 6. Rollin' [Air Raid Vehicle]-Another song of this album that everyone has heard of "keep rollin rollin rollin" a chart succes alough limp bizkit insist they are not in it for the money, but another song with catchy lyrics to it. 7. Livin' It Up- This is another one of my fav songs "livin it up not givin a F*ck" a good rythem with good lyrics keeps you on your feet and wanting more and more limp bizkit! 8. The One-A slowertrack with good lyrics and a point to it you have to give fred durst creit for his writin
                        g abiliy and his determination to keep the album good all the way from start to finish. 9. Getcha Groove On- Done with method man this is sure to be a fav with many people with it's catchy rythem and beat it is different to all the other songs on the album. 10. Take a Look Around-Well this is my favirite out of the lot a great soundtrack to mission impossible2 and is the track which made them internationally known. 11. I'll Be Ok-A slower track and not one of the better tracks alought i am sure many people will like this. 12. Boiler-There latest track to be realesed and is destined to be a huge success with a typical limp bizkit sound to it. 13. Hold On-Another slower song but i like this one as it is well done, Fred Durst has done a good job in keeping the flow going all the way through the record. 14. Rollin' [Urban Assault Vehicle]- A different version of the chart realese and this is a cool version featuring other artists in it and sounds quite a bit different to the other version. 15. Outro-Like the start it lets you know that the album is over in some stupid voice and a cool background sound, which runs into a bouns track! Hope this is of some kind of use to you all!

                        Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavoured Water by Limp Bizkit. In about the middle of May 2000, I heard "Take A Look Around" by Limp Bizkit on Radio 1 during study-leave. I was very impressed by the song, but had no idea who the band were. It also interested me that this would be the Mission Impossible 2 theme tune. A couple of weeks later, I found Napster and then downloaded this song. I couldn't get enough of it and it had to be my song of the summer. After the song made it to Number 3 in the charts, I didn't really hear of the band again. I had no idea that they had released two previous albums, "3 Dollar Bill Y'all" and "Significant Other". In October 2000, I heard My Generation on the radio and then found out that the album would be released in the next week or two. I bought it after a couple of days after the release and I was very pleased with the results. There were only a couple of tracks that I did not enjoy, but besides them, the rest of the album was amazing. Incidentally, the tracks I did not enjoy were Getcha Groove on and also the second version of Rollin'. Just recently, I have really managed to get into The One and Hold On. I didn't listen to them an awful lot beforehand and am listening to both of them every time. There was also something about My Way that seemed to get to me, especially as it was the theme tune for Wrestlemania 17. The tune was very good to listen to orginally, but I had somehow managed to stop listening to it for a while. After this event, I listened to My Way nearly every day and the song is just wearing off a little now. When I bought tickets to see the band in concert at the SECC in Glasgow, I listened to Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavoured Water very often, just so that I would be able to remember all of the lyrics. I am sure that there will be many critics of this album, but from my point of
                        view, it was the album that got me started with Limp Bizkit and that's what I feel counts.

                          This album by Limp Bizkit is absolute rubbish! It's the worst CD I have. I was really pissed off after spending £14.99 on it to listen to a load of dogs bollocks. There are only a couple of tracks which are ok, but the others are terrible! They have changed their style totally, they used to be allot heavier and now theres more synthesized sound. The majority of Limp Bizkit's old fans now think they're crap and I don't blame them! Ten year olds and trendys like to listen to them, they all dance to Limp's worst ever songs such as Rollin' and Hotdog. Fred Durst even won Kerrangs knob of the year! They did get a number 1 out of Rollin' but that’s nothing to be proud of! Do they know who is buying their singles? I think they do. I believe they saw they could make more money by changing there audience. They know that 10-15 year old boys want to be "hard", and Limp Bizkits "badass" attitude appeals to them. Teenage trendies buy whatever is in the top five, as they are sheep. I wonder how many people that have this album also have the other two) 3 dollar bill and significant other). I really Like Limp Limp Bizkit's First album (3 dollar bill y'all) as it a totally different style. Pollution is really good song .I mean you can't not like it even Significant Other (their second album)was decent. There are also A LOT more swear words on their new album than the others. Hotdog has a stupid amount! Why do this? Because 10 year olds are not aloud to swear so by hearing "42 fucks in this fucked up rhyme" will make them interested. It will probably even make them giggle. They may as well put a naked lady on the front cover! I know a lot of people that will read this will probably like this album. My message to you is to listern to the first album! If you have then that’s great, if you still like this album then that’s your opinion! I don't mean to offe
                          nd you! I am also sure that many of you will agree with me, but not many will read this op as its in the Limp Bizkit section and will not bother going near it!
