Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst fell in love with Staind so hard that he coproduced their major-label debut. This fact should be endorsement enough for the Massachusetts-based quartet's target audience. Although not as heavy on hip-hop influences, singer Aaron Lewis's guttural, dragged-through-the-mud vocals dig into the meaty guitar wall and thrash around the speakers like Durst's band. Dysfunction's all-you-can-eat buffet of decibels grows a bit wearisome by the end of the album, but a couple of numbers stand up and demand to be noticed. "Just Go" boasts a classically sludgy Mudhoney-like groove before settling into an uncoiling murmur à la Judas Priest. The well-executed moshpit-ready "Mudshovel" gleefully cops from Alice in Chains' psychedelic leanings. Staind's hard-rock epistles are certain to gather the band a devoted following. --Jason Josephes

"This is such a sic CD! Aaron does not have an annoying whiney voice as i have read in some of the reviews. He is a very good singer. This is one of the best new metal/hard rock bands around. This CD is easily up there with SLIPKNOT for best CD of '99. The guitars are pounding, the bass is thumping, and the drums are brutal. I saw them live at FAMILY VALUES and they were the ones who made the concert worth the $35.00 ticket. Here are my individual ratings for each of the songs:1. Suffocate-5/5 Great opener to the CD.2. Just Go- 4/5 Good follow up to Suffocate, was the first single of DYSFUNCTION.3. Me- 3/5 Song really doesn't fit...too soft4. Raw- 5/5 awesome song second hardest on the CD really gets you going after ME5. Mudshovel- 5/5 Song that got them popular, but it still is a cool song, love the bass intro.6. Home- 4/5 Good Song but again they get softer.7. A Flat- 5/5 again good song to get the listener goin again.8. Crawl- 6/5 BEST/HARDEST/MOST ENERGIZING song on the CD. the bridge in this song is awesome.9. Spleen- 5/5 Great closer to the CD. Another hard song. THERE IS ALSO A HIDDEN SONG ABOUT EIGHT MINUTES AFTER THIS ONE IS OVER.Another thing if STAIND ever comes to your town, go see them live! They are SOOOOOOO kick a** in concert. You won't regret seeing them. BUY THIS!"
Best rock cd ever, hands down.

"Alright, let me just say i first heard of Staind when i saw them on the family values 99 tour here in san antonio. at that time i was not much into rock, but i thought that they rocked it. now they are my favorite band.This is really Staind's second album, which they really matured on. this cd offers something for everyone, unless you are like me and love every song. The singer Aaron Lewis shares everything with his audience. His singing is strait from the heart, and that makes the best music. See him live and watch how he preforms, he is close to tears. He can truly "sing" as shown in songs like Home, Just Go, and Me. He also gets mad on tracks like Raw and Spleen. I can really relate to him, and numereous times this cd has brought me to tears.The music is unbelievable. Lead by hard heavy guitars thanks to Mike Mushok who is amazing. Bassist Jonny April also very talented. Drummer Jon Wysocki (is that right?) can pound the drum set with impeccable timing along with Aarons vocals.When i need to "let it all out" i sing along with the whole cd. when i am working out i listen to the cd. i listen to it in the car. it is always a good time for Staind.If you havent heard Home, Mudshovel, or Just Go on the radio, you must check this album out. If you have heard these on the radio, there is plenty more on the album. If you didnt really like what you heard on the radio, all the songs are not like that. Just listen to it at a local music store."
