Staind - Discography (1996-2012) Lossless: A Review of the American Rock Band's Albums
Staind is an American rock band that formed in 1995 and rose to fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s with their blend of alternative rock, post-grunge and nu metal. The band has released seven studio albums, two compilation albums and one live album, all of which are available in lossless FLAC format. In this article, we will review each of their albums and highlight their best songs and achievements.
The band's debut album was independently released and featured a raw and aggressive sound that was influenced by heavy metal and hardcore punk. The album was controversial for its dark and disturbing lyrics and imagery, which included references to suicide, murder, rape and child abuse. The album was also banned from some stores for its cover art, which depicted a bloody Barbie doll on a crucifix. The album received mixed reviews from critics and fans, but it helped the band gain a cult following and attract the attention of Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, who signed them to his label Flip Records.

The band's second album was their major label debut and marked a shift to a more mainstream and radio-friendly sound. The album was produced by Terry Date, who had worked with bands like Deftones, Pantera and Soundgarden. The album featured more melodic vocals, catchy hooks and polished production, while still retaining some of the heaviness and angst of their previous work. The album was a commercial success, selling over two million copies in the US and spawning four singles: Just Go, Mudshovel (a re-recorded version of the song from Tormented), Home and Outside. The album also received positive reviews from critics and fans, who praised the band's musical growth and maturity.

Break the Cycle (2001)
The band's third album was their breakthrough album and their most successful one to date. The album continued the band's evolution to a more mainstream sound, with more emphasis on melody, harmony and acoustic elements. The album was also more personal and emotional, as it dealt with lead singer Aaron Lewis' struggles with depression, addiction and relationships. The album was a huge hit, selling over five million copies in the US and topping the Billboard 200 chart. It also spawned five singles: It's Been Awhile (the band's most popular song), Fade, Outside (a live acoustic version featuring Fred Durst), For You and Epiphany. The album received mostly positive reviews from critics and fans, who praised the band's honesty and vulnerability.

14 Shades of Grey (2003)
The band's fourth album was their follow-up to Break the Cycle and their last album with drummer Jon Wysocki. The album was similar in style to Break the Cycle, but with less intensity and more diversity. The album featured some of the band's softest songs, such as Zoe Jane (a tribute to Lewis' daughter) and Layne (a tribute to Alice in Chains' Layne Staley), as well as some of their heaviest songs, such as Price to Play and How About You. The album was another commercial success, selling over one million copies in the US and reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It also spawned four singles: Price to Play, So Far Away (the band's second most popular song), How About You and Yesterday. The album received mixed reviews from critics and fans, who felt that the band had lost some of their edge and originality.
