Profile:
Rap-Rock / Nu-Metal (Modern Rock) band from Jacksonville, Florida (USA).

Limp Bizkit formed in 1994 under the name "Limp Biscut". In 1996 they changed the spelling of the name to "Limp Bizkut", and again later that year to "Limp Bizkit" (though some concert flyers would continue to credit them as "Limp Bizkut" well into late 1997). Their work is marked by Durst's abrasive, angry lyrics and Borland's sonic experimentation and elaborate visual appearance, which includes face and body paint, masks and uniforms, as well as the band's elaborate live shows.

to be absolutely honest, the first 2 albums by LB are the only ones worth listening to. They did have a strong pull with Chocolate Starfish but I, personally, only cared for a few songs from it, and less from following records. As i sit here at work typing this, Significant Other is playing and I still love it. Nostalgia or not, fantastic stuff. LB is either liked or tolerated. The fun is what keeps me listening!

I somewhat agree with the other reviewer about Limp Bizkit. I feel that when Wes Borland left, they lost some of their edge. This usually happens when one member leaves a group - the chemistry changes and usually, not for the better. An example of that is Limp Bizkit.

I hate the term "nu-metal". This is simply metal with a very big hip-hop influence. It works extremely well, the hip-hop inspired beats and bounce with metal riffs. It's easy to see why "Nu-Metal" became as big as what it did.

LB's albums are however, very "sign-o-the-times". They're still good but lose some of the impact listening back to them now. I think "Chocolate Starfish" is the one most people will know as it was the big one. Obviously "Rollin" getting to number one here in the UK damaged their cred somewhat but hey, it is a good tune. I must say though, the production on "Chocolate Starfish" is absolutely superb, it's incredibly well mastered too. It really kicks hard and has a great crunchy sound.

Personally for me though, "Significant Other" is the killer LP. It's basically "$3 bill" re riffed, but that itself is a good album. It's a very consistent LP.

The latest offerings have been somewhat disappointing. I hope LB can get back to the way they were, but like i said earlier, i think they've had their time.

Is it any wonder that people completely lost interest in LB ?
There wasn't too much creativity to begin with, but they were able to sell millions of albums anyway, at least during the late 90s and very early 00s. George Michael covers, nookie/cookie rhymes, remix albums featuring rappers ? Yes, there was plenty of that, but just like in case of Bloodhound Gang (who at least are less serious) the joke is over. Boys are all grown up and tasteless jokes and Fred Durst sexual escapades are no longer interesting to anyone. Its about time to hang up.
