Prior to Ego Trip's release, I hadn't heard any of its many teaser tracks. This is not a flex: it wasn't exactly hard to avoid new Papa Roach material. Call it prejudice, call it having listened to every goddamn record this garbage band has ever put out: I wasn't expecting this album to be anything close to good or interesting.
11 albums in, Papa Roach are showing no signs of slowing down. Rather than clinging to the past, 'Ego Trip' is a guided tour through the ever-shifting landscape of rock; from rapcore to anthemic pop-rock, Papa Roach are adapting their signature rap-metal charm and giving it a modern twist. This is an album full of life, eager to experiment with new sounds as much as possible.
