You might recognize the name of the recording studio in the title of the Papa Roach CD as the one used during the "Rock Star" reality show. This famous studio has been used by the likes of Gwen Stefani and now Papa Roach. The boys took up residency of the mansion, lived together and continuously wrote and recorded music. Papa Roach is not one of those rock bands that has a sound and sticks to it; they have been continuously tinkering with their sound with each recording. On this their 5th album the mood is definitely more somber and dark, but the music is more open and large. There is a nice mix of fast and slow songs on the album. Their old fans might be upset with the more radio friendly direction they are taking, but they might win over a whole new legion of new fans in the process.
