We gave it a B+

No nu-metal sounds on Believe, Disturbed’s solid second album, just old-fashioned drum bombs and Master of Puppets-era guitar fuzz. On ”Liberate” and ”Intoxication,” the Chicago band is as electrifying as obvious influence Metallica. The problem is that singer David Draiman is more from the Chester Bennington school of overemoting than the James Hetfield college of thoughtful growls. A song called ”Prayer” by an ex-Orthodox Jew (Draiman) should be far more interesting than the soppy self-pity anthem (”Living just isn’t hard enough/Burn me alive inside”) it turns out to be.
