Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst has a growing stable of talent that is building a track record of amazing successes; first with the wildcard explosion of Staind and then with the signing of melodic alt-rockers Puddle Of Mudd to his Flawless label. It's frightening how well the songs on COME CLEAN stick with the listener immediately. "Control" couples a sleaze-meets-Tool middle eight with STP-flavored guitar crunch. The single-worthy offerings "Nobody Told Me" and "Blurry" burn their way into one's consciousness with the soon-to-be-signature octave-unison vocals of Wes Scantlin.
Former Eleven/Chris Cornell drummer Greg Upchurch brings seasoned chops to the table, especially in "Basement" and "Out Of My Head." The lovesick parody of "She Hates Me" is destined for movie soundtrack infamy, even if it owes a great debt to early Suicidal Tendencies material (the chord progression could have been lifted from "I Saw Your Mommy"). COME CLEAN closes with the Soundgarden-meets-Jane's Addiction "Piss It All Away," the clearest evidence that Puddle Of Mudd are disciples of 90's rock, to great compliment.
