Product Description


It's rare that a band can provide a visceral thrill--Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit", Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name"--and still work the gray matter as well. Here's a band that's refined the art. Hailing from El Paso, Texas, At the Drive-In come poised somewhere between the rabid showmanship of the Make-Up and the complexity of emo pioneers the Lapse, but through sheer adrenaline, they leave both bands choking on their exhaust fumes. Sure, they've got their unique selling point--lead singer Cedric Bixler and guitarist Omar Rodriguez both sport immense Afros--but this band isn't about gimmickry. Recorded after touring with Rage Against the Machine, Relationship of Command is the punk-rock real deal, the angular hardcore dynamic of "One Armed Scissor" and "Rolodex Propaganda" (the latter featuring Iggy Pop) as focused and affecting as any recent American rock. "And the paramedics fell into the wound like a rehired scab at a fair-headed plant, an anaesthetic penance beneath a hail of contraband! / Dancing on the corpses' ashes!" spits Bixler on the album's high-water mark, "Invalid Letter Dept." What does it all mean? Do you really need to ask? --Louis Pattison

Product Description

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunatly No March 3 2001
Format:Audio CD
I know how much many of us here are dying for a band worth anything these days, but unfortunatly, I don't think the answer is with these guys.
When I compare this band to great bands I have recently known, The Smashing Pumpkins, Rage Against the Machine, Tool, Rollins Band, Radiohead, Nirvana, Pearl Jam (old Pearl Jam)...etc... these guys are nothing. This is not a new direction, it is simply a rehash of what has already been done.
The music sounds contrived, and the combination of various genres sounds forced.
In comparison to bands like Limp Bizkit, etc... I give these guys far more credit. But, I don't want to listen to them.

If I have ever heard a more extreme perversion to one's ears I would be kicking myself off of a ladder and into a bar b q pit. These punks don't represent Texas well, they are a disgrace. We at El Paso were already on the map. They're music is shallow, and they are major league sell outs. What's next for cedric and company? Gap ads, Calvin Klien models, thay have that waif look about them. Spend you money on less cliche rock and buy something worth while.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums ever. Nov. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Relationship Of Command is ATD-I's finest work, closely matched with the Vaya EP. Here's how the tracks stand out.
1. Arc Arsenal - Fast, explosive opener to the album that really shows what ATD-I is all about. 9/10
2. Pattern Against User - Amazing song with great beat, great lyrics, and great sounds. An amazing experience. 10/10
3. One Armed Scissor - A very solid song, but it can lose some interest after several plays. 8/10
4. Sleepwalk Capsules - Fast, fun song, but vocals can get annoying. 8/10
5. Invalid Litter Dept. - This is the song that changed everything. The haunting rants of Cedric, mixed with the powerful chorus, makes this song very meaningful. 9.5/10
6. Mannequin Republic - While many people do not enjoy this track, I seem to just start rocking out when listening to this song. The screams, the fast pace, and the guitar line, makes you just want to scream along. 10/10
7. Enfilade - Good song, with an explosive chorrus - 9.5/10
8. Rolodex Propoganda - The worst song on the album, while it is still good. 7.5/10
9. Quarantined - Seriously, this song is one of the best rock songs ever. 100/10
10. Cosmonaut - An extremely exciting, fast song. Cedric's best singing moment is in the bridge of the sond (the screaming part).10/10
11. Non-Zero Possibility - Another beautiful, yet haunting song.This makes me smile everytime at the end, but I have no idea why. 10/10

For the reviewer Mitch, I too shared your opinion early on about this album. I got it in the midst of the Oned Armed Scissor hype that was starting to break them back in 2000. I didn't like it at first, thought it was all just agro garbage.
However, the more I delved into it, the more I saw the incredible musicality and the innovativeness that lurks in this piece of music gold. It is now one of my favorite albums that I own. This was an amazing band and Relationship of Command is a crowning hallmark to one of the greatest underground bands ever. If you don't like it at first, give it a few more listens and then it will start to blow your socks off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius
At The Drive-In is genius. They're the best there ever was, will be, and seemingly can be. I still can listen to the same ATDI cd for hours a day and not be tired of it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic
ATDI's last and most powerful album. Differs greatly from Acrobatic Tenement and El Gran Orgo in that it is not as poppy. If you like rock music, buy this album. Read more
