Oh jeez. Haven't we all had enough of this stupid Latin-music craze already? It's gotta slide into heavy metal now? Well, if you ever wanted a nu-metal Ricky Martin, here it is, 'cause Stitch, though kinda heavy, is that damn bad. Their "gimmick" is to combine heavy metal, Latin music/rhythms, and revolutionary lyrics. Gee, where have we heard that one before? Nah, it must be original…right?
I am so disgusted with this CD that I can't be bothered to dissect it. I think I've wasted enough of my time on it by listening to it five times. Sometimes I can't believe the things that I subject myself to. Maybe I'm a masochist. But I digress…
The best comparison that I can make for this CD is that they take Rage Against the Machine's shtick and go nu-metal with it. So basically, it's something that all the so-called "intelligent" angry nu-rockers will love. Well, not me. Words cannot express the boredom I felt listening to this crap. It takes a hell of a lot more than a hasty mix of clichés and bongo drums to impress me. Pass the Symphony X.
