Boiler Room - _Can't Breathe_
(Tommy Boy, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
This album just rings of nu-metal sounds and style, but I'm not going to write off Boiler Room. I'm a fan of some of the nu-metal sounds and I don't have a problem with it as long as it is done right and done with conviction. The music has to move me. Who cares what genre it is? If it moves me, I'm impressed. So you're asking yourself, "How does Boiler Room stack up?" I'll tell ya people, Boiler Room definitely have the shit going on and no doubt OzzFest veterans and the new breed of high school nu-metal scavengers will be all over this. The selling point of Boiler Room is the vocal delivery of singer Chris Lind, backed tightly and quite adequately by his hombres. At times it sounds cliche -- it all does at times --, but when they hit a stride they can prove quite impressive. Mainstream for sure, but with some footing that is helping them keep it real in metal's realm of existence. Choice cut: opener "Do It Again" or the cool-vibe of "Insomnia".
