Mudvayne at one point were near the very pinnacle of the heavy music world and that was in large part due to the impact of their November, 2002 studio release The End of All Things to Come. While L.D. 50 was raw and full of youthful freakery, the sophomore record found the band refining their attack and really bringing the playing and vocals to a fully realized place with arrangements, hooks and screams that were next level. The songs held up live as well. I am really stoked I got to see them play Ozzfest along with Sabbath and Maiden one year and still remember everyone yelling along and throwing rather dangerous mud projectiles in the crowd.
