No fuss, no gimmicks, just full on Disturbed.

‘The Lost Children’ is the first official collection of Disturbed B-sides and rarities that lends itself to quite an easy review. If you are familiar with the band but have never liked them then the material contained here will not change that opinion. If you’re already a fan then you’ll love the CD immediately but chances are you will have the songs in some form or other by now, though it is nice to have them all together. If you’ve never heard Disturbed before because you were under the misconception they were too heavy with no sense of melody then you have been sorely misled and this generously priced set is perhaps a good place to start.

‘Hell’ (from the ‘Ten Thousand Fists’ sessions) is a bruising opener full of guitarist Dan Donegan’s trademark riffs & solos and singer David Draiman’s incendiary vocals and angst ridden lyrics. This track is pretty much a blueprint for the whole album and if I have any criticism at all it is that the bulk of the songs have a similar pacing, lacking any overall variety. This criticism is counter balanced by the overall quality which is very high and raises the question ‘why weren’t these songs included on the CDs for which they were originally recorded?’

The set includes a previously unreleased song called ‘Mine’, recorded during the ‘Indestructible’ sessions, which is best described as being typically Disturbed…..full of power but containing melody in abundance. ‘3’ is a charity song originally released exclusively on the band’s website back in April and is as heavy as Disturbed have ever been. ‘God Of The Mind’ and ‘A Welcome Burden’ are two great tracks that appeared on the 2010 re-mixed & re-mastered reissue of the 2000 debut album ‘The Sickness’. ‘Leave It Alone’ and ‘Old Friend’ didn’t make it onto ‘Asylum’ but are a match for any of that record’s other tracks. Other songs include ‘Monster’, ‘Two Worlds’, ‘This Moment’ and ‘Sickened’ which were added as bonus tracks on the UK tour edition of ‘Ten Thousand Fists’, ‘Run’ which was featured on a limited edition version of 2008’s ‘Indestructible’ and ‘Parasite’ which appeared on the Japanese edition of the same album. ‘The Lost Children’ ends with a great cover of Faith No More’s ‘Midlife Crisis’ and an entertaining run through Judas Priest’s ‘Living After Midnight’.

No fuss, no gimmicks, just full on Disturbed and an excellent way to fill the time until the band return from an ‘indefinite hiatus’ for the next ‘real’ album of new material.
