Honestly; I wasn't really feeling most the songs. A few of the singles were good; shit we've already heard like corkscrew and perfect problem, parasite was okay. but everything else just isn't for me. twist and shatter especially sounds like some pop-emo shit.

it's utterly fine, the sound is just extremely dated and kind of bland

Well, It might be that other than ICP & Twiztid I never really was a rap fan. I mostly listen to metalcore & industrial metal.

(I've also been fucking heavily w Ghostemane & ITSOKTOCRY since they came out, but rap-wise that's about it.)

Probably also the reason Zug Izland was what introduced me to the fam back in 02.

I have no hang ups about them intending on making a rock album and delivering on it. People sometimes bitch about Twiztid "wanting to be a Hot Topic rock band" or whatever and seem to forget Generation Nightmare, Mad Season, Revelashen, Songs Of Samhain were all mostly rap based and all came out within about the span of a year. Not that those albums are my favorites of theirs, but I think the "they just want to do rock shit" complaint is silly when you look at their work. 

However, I just don't think Unlikely Prescription is a very good rock album. It's a perfectly "OK' album and I'm not saying it's outright bad or anything, but I've listened to it a couple times now and there's really almost nothing I remember from it or feel like I absolutely have to go back to it. I'm not sure who their band was or who produced the album or whatever but I get the feeling they did exactly what Twiztid wanted, it's just not very unique or memorable in my opinion.

exactly this. it's a perfectly competent album, it's well-produced, and it's completely generic

make a rock album, make any sort of album, but whatever genre you pick, do something new and bold with it

this doesn't even remotely come close to do anything groundbreaking or even very interesting, it's basically slickly produced elevator music

If I had to guess, honestly. I think it has to do with Jamie being a fan of rock and metal but not being a musician. He's a rapper and a writer, I think he has some production credits but AFAIK neither he nor Paul can play any instrument.

 

So, my guess is he knows what rock sounds like, he knows what vibe they want to go for, but he's not involved in the music enough to try to get weird or experimental with the sound too much. They're still in their safe zone as far as the rock sound goes.

 

I bet if Jamie picked up a guitar or a bass and had a few lessons under his belt their rock sound would improve a lot.

 

OR they could call "the darkness" back into the studio and do an album or two with them. Let the rock musicians handle the instrumentals and he and Paul can do the vocal tracks.

 

Of course, this is all just speculation. My best guess given what I know about music.

I will say Jamie's vocals on this thing are one of the high points, his voice is suited for it. It's just the songs themselves slip right out of mind without a trace as soon as the track ends.

This is how most of their post-PSY music is for me. I'm probably just retarded. But it seems like that "studio magic" that Psychopathic artists used to talk about may not have been a fantasy phrase... maybe there is some truth to it. Maybe certain environments and equipment and individuals brings out what makes certain individuals sound like their best.

it seems like MNE releases everything that gets recorded, where-as PSY clearly had quality control.. Garcia Bros was their 3rd attempt on the album, while "strictly 4 the scrubs'" was the 1st..

I believe that's what he meant. As in "the Psychopathic Records of our not-too-distant fond memories" cared about quality control.

At least The Grump was just confined to a giveaway thing that the general public has only heard because someone uploaded it to Youtube and it wasn't on any released album. But still, ICP does have a lot of opportunity to tighten up their quality control these days for sure.

50 yr old teenage angst is whack. Twiztid  only ever released 3 top quality albums in their whole discography:

mosrasteless

freakshow

abominationz 

boy there was a long gap between 2 and 3. I’m not hating because of mne. Clearly there was a lot of shit releases on psy too.

My thoughts are that I wish it was a Jamie Madrox solo album with more rock features on each track (singing and doing instrumental work...I know there are quite a few on here tho and I respect that they at least attempted it for a few joints)...don't mind Monoxide on a few of these but overall he just doesn't cut it in the singing department IMO compared to Jamie who is at least passable and it makes the album uneven for me in a sense...I share a lot of the same critiques as others in here...it feels a bit generic or repetitive overall which is a shame considering I actually enjoy the majority of Twiztid's rock attempts previously and had hopes this album would have a bit of everything...instead it just feels like Heartbroken & Homicidal with more singing...I fuck with Envy, Perfect Problem, Neon Vamp, Comes With An Apology, Parasite, and Rose Petal quite a bit and there's aspects of other songs I enjoy as well but again it just makes me think of ways it could have been better...not the worst thing I've heard by any means and I personally don't mind them dipping into more emotional/vulnerable music because at least it's not the same subliminal disses at J constantly lol I know Madrox is a huge Alice in Chains fan and would have loved to hear some of that influence rub off on here more...that guest verse on No Change gave me MAGA vibes which ruins the song for me
