Review: Limp Bizkit – My Way (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Limp Bizkit – My Way.

This track was released in 2000 on the album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.

The track starts off with a guitar element as well as some chopped vocals with some scratching. The vocals then start up as the bass guitar comes in. A drum kit also joins in as the vocals go through the first verse.

From there, the vocals go through the main chorus along with some lead guitars. After that, the track pulls back as the chopped vocals return along with the scratching.

After that, the track hits the next verse. This builds into the main chorus. That is capped off with an altered version of the main chorus.

At this point, the track pulls back and some acoustic guitar element takes over. This is joined by the chopped vocals and scratching. After this, the vocals makes a return, building back up to the main chorus again.

Another verse comes in again with the lead guitars continuing in an altered fashion. After this, the acoustic guitar takes over with the chopped vocals and scratching.

One thing I do like about this track is the fact that the mood and themes are very well realized. Both the vocals and the guitars really find ways of emphasizing this from beginning to end.

Another positive about the track is the vocals. They are especially good during the verses. I’m not 100% on board with the way they came out in the main chorus, but as far as I’m concerned, they are 90% there. So, it’s not bad in any way.

My only problem is that there are a few lyrics that do fall into the category of cliche. Considering a lot of positive elements are already in this track, this dulls the criticism a fair bit. It’s still there, though.

Overall, this is a very solid track. It has some great vocals, great flow, and great use of the instruments. The cliche’s did pull the quality of the track back a bit, but it’s still a track worth listening to.

Score
7.5/10
