I thought this album was very disappointing, (because I think their debut album Wisconsin Death Trip kicks so much ass) but this album is great for die-hard fans of Static-X, it took me several tries to listen to the other songs, but I found myself skipping most of the songs and going right to the singles. I decided to write this review while listening to the entire album, I thought it was pretty damn good after listening to it all the way (but not too good).
1.Bien Venidos: Starts off with clapping and cheering of people while a band in the background starts playing some Spanish traditional music, making it seem like a concert. I think it's meant to be humorous and it's too short to give a score to.
2.Get to the Gone: A great song probably the best out of all the songs. It starts off with Wayne screaming his lungs out while the guitars shred insane riffs and the drums sound unstoppable, like a motor, and the rest of the song is just moshable, a great song. 10/10
3.Permanence:Pretty decent song, better than some of the singles it's well good-8/10
4.Black and White: Pretty good single, not too impressed because the riff sounded too much like Korn's "Need To" off their S/T-7/10
5.This is Not:The first single off Machine, it has that familiar Static-Xish feeling and a great anger song.-9/10
6.Ostego Undead-It was ehhh, had too many techno/industrial elements for my liking, others might like this-4/10
7.Cold-A really great song, on my list it's second best (right after Get to the Gone). I'm so glad that this was a single. -10/10
8.Structural Defect-A pretty good song after the intro, good song to headbang to.-6/10
9....In A Bag-Not a bad song, not a great song, just mediocre.-5/10
10.Burn to Burn-This song should've been a single, it's that good.
