Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water

Album Summary

Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water is the third studio album by American band Limp Bizkit, released on October 17, 2000, by Flip and Interscope Records. Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water received mixed reviews from critics, as Metacritic gave it a 49 out of 100. AllMusic writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote, "Durst's self-pitying and the monotonous music give away that the band bashed Chocolate Starfish out very quickly – it's the sound of a band determined to deliver a sequel in a finite amount of time." The Rolling Stone Album Guide awarded the album three out of five stars,[31] whereas the magazine itself gave the album a 3.5 out of 5. Even so, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water was listed in the book for 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, but later removed in recent editions of the book.

Hot take: this would be a semi-decent metal LP (maybe mid-tier deftones level) if you cut a few tracks and the lead singer didn't sound like Ron Stoppable.

Kinda decent for a meme of a band

I really only knew the name of this band and that they are from Chicago. "Intro" hit and I'm like "woah...am I a Limp Bizkit fan?" "Hot Dog" started to hit a little hard but then I found myself grooving and laughing. While this is not my preferred genre, I'm really surprised that I kind of enjoy nu-metal rap!

Not quite sure what's going on with the reviews and whether or not this is in the 1001 at all but I quite enjoyed it. I initially took one look at the album cover and groaned but there are a few tracks i've heard before and it actually helps knowing nothing about them or the genre. But you need to be in the mood for loud music........

Loads of songs with samples from famous other song and new lyrics. As much as I like nu metal this is a bit of a hit and miss album for me with exception of select songs. Still, would give it a go again

i don't think i could hate this music more. How the hell is this on any list of albums you need to hear? Now i feel bad about giving Hail to the Thief 1 star, because that alsbum is light years better than this trash. Also, this is clearly the worst album cover of all time.

Before I even spin the first tune, I'll say this is a band I consciously avoided. Not sure why. Let's see if I denied myself something fabulous. Oh right... now I remember. Fred Durst may be the biggest little bitch in music. Jesus, he's insufferable. Did you know he doesn't give a fuck? I just Googled "how many times does limp bizkit say fuck on chocolate starfish," and apparently, the title track is noted as having the word "fuck" 48 times. So multiplied by 15, that's 720. So, I still listened to the album (how some of these songs have over 200 million spins on Spotify is confounding). "My Way" has something that resembles a hook, "The One" is actually not offensive or juvenile, and the blend of electronic and metal has promise, but the message in the music is so self-focused and inane, and it's so flat and uninspired, it's hard to endure. I guess some folks feel differently. Great. Makes me wish I rated When Teardrops Explode as a 2 because this sets the bar for a one-star rating. Next?

Ovaj album je toliko jebeno loš da je to nevjerojatno. Razina lijenosti songwrittinga i čista nepatvorena glupost tekstova je baš fascinantna. Ovaj album je u trenutku izlaska bio najprodavaniji rock album u prvom tjednu u sadu s čak 1.1 milijuna primjeraka. Nije ni čudno što je cd era ubrzo došla kraju😄
