LIMP BIZKIT Significant Other

Limp Bizkit is perched like a plump cherry atop the rap/metal sundae following the widespread success of its platinum-selling debut, Three Dollar Bill, Y'All$. The Florida fivesome brings back the head-cracking noise and booty-shaking beats on this outstanding follow-up, Significant Other. The product of a steady diet of Suicidal Tendencies and Run-D.M.C, the album has an intensity that never lets up, surpassing the musical scope of its predecessor with rapcore gems such as "Nookie" and the blunted hip-hop of the DJ Premier-produced N 2 Gether Now (featuring Method Man).

Razor-tongued vocalist Fred Durst raps, "As the audience grows/Security knows/ Stopping me now/Is serious"with the conviction of a chest-beating MC. Durst still deals with life with his unsinkable attitude, never hesitating to scream "Fuck off!"to whomever he pleases, while guitarist Wes Borland wields his axe with a vengeance, pounding out riffs so down and low, you'll trip over them. The unholy matrimony of metal and rap celebrates another victory on this superb sophomore effort, which of course I wanted to hate, just like everyone over the age of 28.
