| The music on this album is enough to warrant a listen and make it a good release for Bride. But, it appears that they tried a little too hard to get every single street slang they could think of and at least half of the cliches into the songs. Dale is still Dale, i.e. he rocks, and Troy is still Troy. I actually like this album. I admit it.

|I'm a long time Bride fan and sometimes a release from them is so different it takes me awhile to get it. This happened with Kinetic Faith as it was a big departure from the Silence Is Madness sound and again with Drop. Fist Full Of Bees is a very aggressive, rapcore album. At first I was utterly turned off by the record. Then I really listened to it. There is some bone-shattering metal on this release. Check out the song White House to see what I mean. I highly recommend this record!!

|This CD bites! There is not one redeemable value to it. It's a waste of plastic and metal. Bride has continued to destroy any respect due them because they constantly FOLLOW the trends. I have been a Bride fan since their first album, but this album is nothing short of a joke!

|I thought this was a good album, however the street slang and the rapping are a little too much for me. The music is great!

|This has been my favorite Bride cd untill they came out with "This is it". The sheer force of impact from these songs are overwelming. Dale continues to be Dale. He rides the trends so that he can reach as many people as possible. His goal is to serve Christ, not to please everyone. Bride is one band that does not sell out when it comes to the message behind the tunes.

|This is one of those discs that you need to sit alone and really listen too. This CD is grossly under-rated and still impresses me every time i listen to it. This is a "rare" piece of art that most artists wouldnt dare try, and Bride pulled it off. For those that didnt like it, i would be interested in learning how many times you listened to it. As a loyal long time Bride fan and understanding their music, sometimes it takes a few times on a disc to actually "get" the groove, only then it sinks

|So, if you don't force yourself to listen to this over and over again until you start to like it, you are not a true fan? That's ridiculous! Art? This was Bride trying to stay relevant by following a trend that thankfully died quickly. Take a listen to the C-stone live CD where Dale admits that doing the rap thing was easier than actually singing. I agree with Scott, this album is crap. They released far better things before it and after it.

|When someone calls your music crap they obviously are not true fans of the band. Every band should have the right to expand and experiment. Even when Bride came out years later with super heavy metal CDs like Tsar Bomba and Skin for Skin the band still got criticized by simple minded music lovers who refused to allow themselves out of their comfort zone and understand that artist paint with many colors.
