10. …To Be Loved: The Best Of Papa Roach (2010)

“Papa Roach covered quite a wide range of musical styles throughout their career, so it is a good choice to keep it (almost) in a chronological order. It starts off with “Broken Home” and “Last Resort” from Papa Roach’s major label debut album ‘Infest’, featuring pure Nu Metal, strong guitars with rapping and singing of frontman Jacoby Shaddix.”

9. Who Do You Trust? (2019)

“This is just a really good rock album. It’s a mix of old and new Papa Roach – Jacoby returns to his rapping roots over Muse-like beats and guitar riffs. I think it’s the perfect combination. There are a couple of songs that I don’t care for, but I can easily listen to the majority of this album on repeat.”

8. Time For Annihilation (2010)

“This album is quite amazing not just for the live tracks but the new material to me was shocking and so emotional. Like most people who enjoy rock music I like burn, and kick in the teeth, but what did it for me was the song No matter what the lyrics really spoke to me and made me think of one of my friends who is very close to me. But for those who think Papa Roach is going overboard with the amount of music they are putting out just listen to the music then make up your mind and quite bad mouthing the band.”

7. Crooked Teeth (2017)

“”Crooked Teeth” is a disc that has a few big trademarks to its name whenever you consider its style. For one, Jacoby really brings back the rapping style of his vocal chops that was present on “Infest”, and brings it back to the current day. In fact, his rapping is the first thing you get on the album’s first track “Break The Fall”. This song kicks off the album fantastically, and I’m really enjoying these riffs that this song contains during the choruses as they do bring some heaviness to the song as well as the typical singing that comes from Jacoby as well as the backing members delivering their contributions to this mix, and they’ve never been better.”

6. The Paramour Sessions (2006)

“Upon listening to the first track as well as the first single, “…To Be loved”, you’ll notice something different to their style, but it’s undeniably still Papa Roach. As the album progresses, it’s very easy to get sucked into Jacoby’s lyrics and vocals in this album. This is most definately the album where the frontman and lead vocalist Jacoby shaddix has really put his vocals to a new test, and in my opinion, passed it.”

5. The Connection (2012)

” The lyrics are awesome and the beats are great it flowed smoothly. I’ve always been a Papa Roach fan but I love how they are evolving and lots of bands have pretty much the same beat or something close to it through the whole album, its not a bad thing its what makes you go oh that’s this band because you recognize their sound but with this album I was like is that Papa Roach or did All That Remains come on.”

4. Metamorphosis (2009)

“This is definitely an exception. Brilliant songwriting- really good, intelligent lyrics, good melodies, great hooks, creating a powerful sound with exceptional musicianship. When I say good, intelligent lyrics, I do not mean to imply they are not sexist, are not filled with profanity or will not be offensive to some. But these are great, well-crafted songs with great performances by a great band at their zenith. To me, one of the best rock albums in a long time. In fact, one of the best of any genre in a long time.”

3. Lovehatetragedy (2002)

“I like “Lovehatetragedy” and it’s style better. They sound harder and Jacoby’s voice is more powerful and boisterous than ever. Songs like “Born With Nothing, Die With Everything” and “Time and Time Again” bring out that “break-stuff” mentality, while songs like “Decompression Period” and “Black Clouds” bring you back down and mellow you out so well. All the songs on the cd are entertaining in their own right.”

2. Getting Away With Murder (2004)

“Full of the same infectious hooks and larger than life riffs, courtesy of guitarist Jerry Horton (one of the best guitarists in the nu-metal genre), Papa Roach’s music is just as catchy and powerful as ever. However, this time around, frontman Jacoby Shaddix has some better topics to sing about, and he conveys his emotion much more maturely and stronger than ever. Technically, this is a concept album about Shaddix’s alcohol problems and the toll being on the road for extended periods of time has taken. “Be Free” is a shining example of this; an anthem about defeating alcoholism with a catchy beat and clever lyrics (could be a hit?), while the standout “Scars” (my personal favorite) is a somewhat softer and more emotionally charged track about putting the past behind and finding yourself. “

1. Infest (2000)

“Once you listen to this album you will be amazed by the depth and talent they share. Broken Home is very, very powerful, and Between Angels and Insects is as deep a theme as anything Tori Amos has written. One reason that this album is so powerful is that the order of the songs works very well.”
