Is it buzz or is it hype?  That's the question our critics will attempt to answer in this series and you the fan get to put your two cents in as well.

Spymob - Sitting Around Keeping Score
Does the former N.E.R.D. backing band have what it takes?

The Sounds - Living In America
They’re Swedish, they have a “the” in their name, but they ain’t no garage band.

Orgy - "Punk*Statik*Paranoia*
You can lump Orgy in with the Korn's of the world, but their style is very appealing because it is so different.

Bleu - Redhead
Under the guise of Bleu one James McAuley III has with “Redhead" confected something of a power-pop primer for those of us who missed it in the old days.

Radford - Sleepwalker
This CD arrives as a result of one man's journey through the thickets of true love and the music industry.

Tijuana Strip Club - Sparklers and Bottlerockets
Would You Like Some Whine With That Cheese?

Bob Guiney - 3 Sides
TV's Bachelor tried his luck as a singer/songwriter.

Coal Chamber - Giving the Devil His Due
The band's swan song release gives fans a deeper look into what made Coal Chamber stand apart from the pack.

Limp Bizkit – Results May Vary
Fred Durst is on a mission to save rock n roll!

Mushroomhead - XIII
Angry Masked nu-metallers.. hum, where did we see this before?

Big Dismal
Guitar rock new comers Big Dismal, are presently doing the rounds of the U.S.

Verbena
Verbena’s formula is one part Stooges with one part 80’s street rock (Early LA Guns, Guns N’ Roses). 

Memento
Do these L.A. hard rockers have what it takes to be the next big thing?

Electric Six - Fire.
Mixing metal and disco? What the hell? Strangely it works!

Serj Tankian's Serart
Another side of the SOAD frontman.

Pillar
Promise turnes into nu-metal by the numbers.

Linkin Park – Meteora 
Has Linkin Park become a parody of themselves?

Sev
The nail in the coffin of nu-metal?

Stereo Fuse
Should Nickelback and Creed watch their backs?

Cinder -  Break Your Silence
Do these protégé's of STP's Scott Weiland live up to the buzz?

Audioslave
Does the Rage/Cornell project measure up to the Hype?

Foo Fighters - One By One
Dave Grohl and Co return with perhaps their strongest album yet!

Filter - The Amalgamut 
Dan takes a look at Filter's 3rd full length release to see if it lives up to expectations

Linkin Park - Reanimation
antiGUY asks, "is this Linkin Park regrooved or are they milking 'Hybrid Theory' for all it is worth?"

Rearview Mirror: All Lights Off
The first release from Steve Lillywhite's label

Red Hot Chili Peppers - By the Way
antiGUY takes a look at RHCP's new more radio friendly CD to see if they are evolving or going commercial.

Ash - Free All Angels
Hailed by the British music press as the best album of the year, Dan gives it a listen to find out if it all hype or the geniune article.
