Album Description
Available in:
Chapter V is the fifth studio album from American rock band Staind. It was released on August 9, 2005, debuted at number 1 with first week sales of 185,000 copies, and has spawned four moderately successful singles on rock radio. Its first single "Right Here" was the most successful at both rock and pop stations and it was used in a video package by World Wrestling Entertainment commemorating wrestler Edge after he won his first WWE Championship. "Falling", "Everything Changes" and "King of All Excuses" have also been released with accompanying videos.

Lead singer Aaron Lewis has stated that he thinks 'Chapter V is the best record the band has released to date', and the album continues the evolution from the messages on 14 Shades of Grey to messages of hope and uncertainty. It also showcases a heavier side to the band on selected tracks (reminiscent of some content on Dysfunction), and emphasizes a balance between both style of the band's sound. The album includes a track called "Paper Jesus" targeted at record company executives who idolize money instead of music and "Reply", an open letter replying to fan mail that Aaron Lewis and the rest of the band have received over the years (the original version can be found on the Special Edition).

User Album Review
In a word: ridiculous. And another: absolutely. Staind's Aaron Lewis claims to have grown up in a trailer park - classic spawning ground of complaint-rock wallflowers - and has spent the last 10 years getting it out of his system. To little avail - Chapter V goes over the same ground as previous albums (which, with titles such as Tormented and Dysfunction, did very much what they said on the tin), and you can guess what ground that is.

Numbed by the malarkey that the rest of us call everyday life, he's "dead inside" (why bother hauling yourself into a studio, then?), capable only of "schizophrenic conversations that I'm always having with myself". Would that they were only with himself. That would have saved the rest of us from this trawl through a psyche where the glass is not only half-empty, but also the liquid in it is something you'd rather not think about. How can this dork-metal silliness still be going on in 2005?
