It’s amusing how some people say “It’s just like their other albums” and “It’s their same sound”. Like what the hell did you expect? It’s Disturbed, they’re going to keep rocking with new messages, new experiments (such as “Hold On To Memories”), and more ideas. If you want them to change their sound...listen to a new group. If you didn’t support this album in any way...you weren’t as loyal as you say. This album is the next step in their story and it’s only moving forward.
Lite but fantastic
Lightest album yet but very lyrical! Evolution is the perfect name for the album as this is like nothing they ever produced. It’s Very good!!!!! Great job guys!!!!
I agree this may be their best album! I have been a Disturbed fan since Down With the sickness! I love how he does hard and soft songs on this album! Great album!! I love it!!
Disturbed has continuously delivered amazing quality and stayed true to their sound.

I’ve always loved disturbed this album is great. It totally follows their style. Keep rocking on
the heavier songs on the album sound like they were ripped right from five finger death punch, the lighter songs on the album, which there are way too many, sound boring and like they were done quickly just to get the album done and over with. Only could handle about 2 listens through of it before i totally lost interest which hasnt happened with a disturbed album besides asylum.hey have totally lost their sound and their touch.
I am glad I didn’t buy this
I can count on 2 fingers the number of songs I like on this record...with one finger left over. Swing and a miss.
Not the Disturbed I know

I don't know what the hell this is, but it isn't Disturbed. Is this an acoustic album. Very disapointing.
I hate to compare old to new but it’s hard with this one. I love that rock/metal is coming back but this is a disgrace whole album is horrible this should not represent new rock. Waisted $13
The Age of Disturbed is Unfortunately Over (Edited)
Unfortunately, I will never buy this album. Why? Because it doesn't sound like Disturbed. I have no idea what they were thinking with this album. It's like they were sitting in the studio one day and somebody just spoke up and said, "Hey guys! Let's take everything that made us great and throw it in the garbage!". Then, by some miracle, everyone agreed on it. Draiman himself said that Immortalized was their most successful album. Even that one to me was very different from their "old stuff", but it was a welcome change. I could definitely tell that it was Disturbed and I enjoyed, still do enjoy, listening to the album. But this.... this is just........ I honestly don't know.
If you put a different singer behind the mic, I'd think this was a different band entirely. None of the musical elements sound like Disturbed. The only reason I didn't give this a one star rating is because I did in fact enjoy some of the softer songs. I am not one of "those people" who just write a one star review and say, "IT'S THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER!". Those people are either deaf or just trolling the iTunes review sections. I thoroughly listened to each track and I most certainly enjoyed certain elements. I personally thought the electronic/guitar sounds were different and catchy. If they incorporated those sound FX with Disturbed's signature sound, I would've seriously considered buying this album. Then again, if they sounded like Disturbed I would've bought it anyway!
Also, what's with them getting rid of "The Guy" on their cover art??? All they had to do was add the eyes and teeth behind the DNA strand and I would've been happy. He first made an appearance on The Sickness album and after their Believe album, they have always found a way to incorporate him.<(Edited album name to The Sickness instead of Down with the Sickness after fact checking) Now they quit that legacy on their "best album" yet? *sigh*
Yeah, this album would've been mine if they had gotten rid of the Disturbed branding. For example, I have Draiman's "side project" album in 2013 with Device. I love that album! It doesn't sound like Disturbed whatsoever besides having Draiman as the lead singer. That's ONE of the reasons I love the album! He's got a wonderful voice, even it is softer singing.
With all of this being said, I personally think that the "age of Disturbed" has come to an end with this album. Draiman's voice just can't scream anymore and their signature sound has been abandoned entirely with this album. Farewell guys, it was a great run.
