From Ashes To New: Day One
Nu metal revivalists fail to make anything new
Is it time for another Papa Roach album already?
You can almost hear From Ashes To New going through a list as the album was mixed: Coolio-esque opening bars? Scratching? A rapped unclean vocal line? All check. If you like your music to bear all the hallmarks of white skaters doing hip hop, they do that very well, but it’s all a bit old hat – and a grubby beanie hat with holes in, at that. Still, there are some positives.
