Review: Filter – Watch the Sun Come Out Tonight

Rated:

3/5

“Take a Picture” may be Filter’s biggest chart hit, but we’ll always be partial to “Hey Man, Nice Shot” and the songs that let main man Richard Patrick vent, fume, and bleed a little bit. Fortunately, that’s what Patrick favors on his sixth Filter album, a 12-song set that went through a couple of permutations but still bristles with industrial-strength angst on tracks such as “We Hate It when You Get What You Want,” “This Finger’s For You,” and the particularly brutal “Self Inflicted.” That makes the pretty moments like “Surprise” that much more effective, while the stark “It’s My Time” is as harrowing as any of the heavier tracks.
