Papa Roach - Naked And FearlessPapa Roach – Naked And Fearless

On Monday Papa Roach release their new single ‘Lifeline’ and on the same day the band also release a very special new acoustic EP called ‘Naked And Fearless’, the EP only features 3 songs and they are acoustic versions of songs that feature on their current album ‘Metamorphosis’, the songs are ‘Lifeline’, ‘Had Enough’ and ‘Carry Me’.

The acoustic version of ‘Lifeline’ is well good as you see such a different side of a foot-stomping rock and roll song, everything has been stripped away from the song leaving just a basic acoustic guitar running throughout whilst Jacoby sings his heart out, this version of the song sounds so basic yet so perfect and passionate at the same time.

The acoustic version of ‘Had Enough’ doesn’t sound that much different from the original version of the song just because the song is actually a real toned down song anyway, once again it gives Jacoby chance to shine with his vocals which do come across slightly stronger here than they do on the original version of the song.

‘Carry Me’ is a perfect song to turn to acoustic due to the chill out factor of the song which only lights up during the big sing-a-long chorus.

‘Naked And Fearless’ is a good release, it is always good to hear such a rocking band strip there sound right down and still sound amazing, and that is exactly what Papa Roach have done here, the only disappointments from the release is when I interviewed Papa Roach a couple of months ago they said they were working on an acoustic version of ‘Tightrope’ which will be their first acoustic release, but sadly it is not included on this EP, also I do feel the songs on the EP could of just appeared as b-sides on the single release of ‘Lifeline’ but hey it’s not me who makes these decisions.
