The album is heavier and darker than their previous album Infest.
Despite being a fan favorite, the album failed to catch the success of their previous album Infest.
According to Papa Roach, the band wanted to incorporate more singing over rapping into their music, though the album does contain rapping, mostly in the singles "She Loves Me Not" and "Time and Time Again". lovehatetragedy was the band's last album to feature a nu metal sound and rapping until the release of The Connection a decade later in 2012.
The album did not sell as well as its 2000 predecessor, Infest, selling more than 700,000 units, achieving gold certification in the U.S. It was certified Gold in Canada and in the UK, and has sold over 3,000,000 copies worldwide. It peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and was mostly well received by music critics.
