CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

The heavy songs on Evolution should please longtime fans, with a couple harkening back to the dynamism of Disturbed’s first couple of albums, but the glut of softer tracks may have been served better on a separate acoustic EP.

AllMusic

While it's hard to argue that Evolution lives up to its moniker, the familiarity of the architecture is lent considerable gravitas by the overall execution, which as per usual, leaves nothing but perspiration in its wake.

There are superficial differences here and there, but for the most part these tracks stick to predictable structures and similarly bland tones.

Exclaim!

At best, Evolution could add a few more bangers to their roster and slip by unnoticed. At worst, it could knock the band down to Creed levels of self-parody.

NME

It’s worth noting that the title of this, the Chicago metal band’s seventh studio album, is ‘Evolution’. Honestly: any of these 10 songs would sound perfectly at home on the band’s 2000 debut ‘The Sickness’.

Disturbed are the Americans’ Nickelback, one of those bands that defy explanation.

Its so fucking ironic that Disturbed decided to title their latest effort "Evolution" because Evolution would constitute positive improvement, and the band have done quite the contrary and devolved into pop-metal bullshit.

I am absolutely disgusted by this

Disturbed is still around... part of me is disgusted... and part of me is appalled

This thing is just so fucking cringe man. That is the biggest issue with this thing the lyrics. They are cheesy as fuck. Other than that there is pretty good guitar work on most of these songs but I just can't get past the lyrics. Old distured wasnt great but jesus these lyrics might actually be worse than Skillets latest album. Overall if you speak a different language and can't understand what he is saying this might actually be enjoyable but this is just trash.

What is it with these fucking acoustic-y bullshit tracks? They're the worst thing about this. Then again, some of the standard rock/metal tracks throughout aren't any better.
This is probably their worst album, I sadly must admit.
Standout tracks: 1, 7, 9
