Papa Roach - Crooked Teeth (Eleven Seven Music) 2017
Papa Roach are back with their ninth studio album in a near 25 year career. That was a long ago when the Californian outfit released their debut album in 1997, Old Friends from Young Years. The years went by and they are still here pushing themselves as musicians and as a group. This time around they went back to their roots and that’s how Crooked Teeth kicks in. It reminds us the old days when songs like “Last Resort” were anthems for teenagers back then. Crooked Teeth brings back that old school Papa Roach attitude, along with hip-hop rock mashup with some really metal breakdown riffs. Shaddix is quite impressive with his rapping technique with the band’s intense energy throughout the whole album.
