crazy album. but the best songs are on the first half. but its still a great album. heres the lowdown:
slave labor...5/5...hard song that kicks off this album really good
cyberwaste...5/5...heaviest song on the album. what can i say? its awesome.
act of god...4/5...kind of a step down from the first two
drones...5/5...stepped back up after the third track. this ones got cool double bass drumming.
archetype...5/5...another kickass double bass drumming beat in this one. sweet song too.
corporate cloning...5/5...very true lyrics and very good song.
bite the hand that bleeds...5/5...slower, but still very good.
undercurrent...4/5...this is where the album declines a little bit. but its still very good songs.
default judgement...4/5...this one doesnt live up to the rest of the album.
bonescraper...4/5...this songs pretty heavy, but its got kind of a happy sounding riff as the intro and chorus, so its kind of an anomoly.
human shields...3/5...this one doesnt grow on you at all after disliking it for so long.
ascension...2/5...more of an 'i have a headache i want quiet noises to sooth me' kind of song. kind of boring.
school...1/5...never was a big nirvana fan, and even ff cant save this stupid and immature tune. (and i know someone will eventually hit a 'no' underneath this saying my review wasnt helpful because i just dissed nirvana...the "best and most creative band of all time.")
ok, so with two stupid songs, 1 seven minute track of calm noises, 3 good songs, 7 awesome songs...its hard to argue with archetype. its fast, its heavy, it can be slow, and its truthful and real (besides the last track). i like that. this would be a good next pick as a cd purchase, definately. lets just leave it at this: yes i said this album displays some sub-par songs, but the rest of the album makes up for them.
