AllMusic
Is it good? Well, if you're not into this stuff, this won't change your mind, but the band does work up some energy, sounds pretty muscular on most of the album, and has some good hooks, even if they tend to overplay their hand by throwing too many hooks into the riffs or screaming just a bit to much. Still, that's par for the course with alt-metal.

Rolling Stone
The band's roiling rhythms, barbed riffs and kick-drum-splitting beats take rap rock back to its roots in New York hardcore punk and D.C. Dischord bands like Fugazi. Dick replaces Zack de la Rocha's Commies-are-cool lyrics with words that walk a thin line between deep and dumb but always sound like a page from some pissed-off high school kid's journal.

Entertainment Weekly
Another band of screaming Mimis with a jones for rockin’ rap and lyrics that sound vaguely insurrectionary but do little more than massage the arguably antiestablishment prejudices of mall rats everywhere.

Papa Roach wanna rock us like they're a bad hair day away from going postal. But singer Coby Dick sounds more like a high school freshman hitting his locker 'cause he just got cut from the JV track squad.

Don't let the fact that "Last Resort" has been one the most overplayed songs ever, take away from the raw intensity that this album brings from beginning to end. There are plenty of lyrics that hit home and each song is heavy and aggressive.

Favorite tracks: Broken Home, Dead Cell, Between Angels and Insects, Revenge, Snakes
