Yeah, it really sucks. Album is relatively good though, despite all the hating on it.

this is brilliantly written, but I think you're a little too harsh in your general overview, I genuinely don't think its as bad as the score and some of your points make out.

Other points however are very valid, and if you were going to compare this to either of the previous two records closely, I can see why you've rated it so.

I think this sucks so much because of their previous work. Had any other band made this it might be amazing, but this is DEP.

No this would suck DEP or not.

Comparing this record to their past ones is pretty logical considering they said it was going to combine the best of both worlds.

the album art actually looks pretty good when you've got it in your hands, but i'll admit i thought it looked shit when i saw it online before the release.

no idea what those random blocks in the liner notes are tho... code?

What's with all the hate for this album?

It's no "Calculating Infinity" or "Miss Machine" but I still enjoyed it.

Congrats on using the word discombobulated without sounding like a douche.

I pretty much agree with this review but I'm just not as harsh with my rating. I think DEP were stuck with this one, not sure of the direction they were heading in, hence the mixture of 1. Typical DEP insanity 2. electronic experimentation, and 3. pop-metal tendencies.

I still enjoyed it to a fair degree and I've liked this band since before Miss Machine came out. In terms of production, Nick, you should check this blog by Ben Weinmen. http://headbangersblog.mtv.com/2007/11/07/guest-blog-the-dillinger-escape-plans-benjamin-weinman/

Yeah, Grimbo, I asked the same question.

Maybe people will start to view it less harshly when they stop narrowing down what DEP should sound like (i.e. every album = CI).

Even when not compared to earlier work, this album is just really bad.

I actually really like the cover art. It reminds me a lot of Dark Side of the Moon. The geometric/symmetric aspects of the cover art sort of complement some aspects of DEP's music.


If you combine this album's art along with Colors, you get DSOTM. Whether that was intentional or not is another story.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the artwork. Not everything has to have a million things going on in order to be good.

The album is enjoyable, but it's disappointing.

I'm not giving it a rating until I give it a few more spins, but I am kind of annoyed by the fact that I dropped 15 bucks on this.

And the people complaining about the absence of Chris. Gil Sharone is a great drummer, don't forget that.

Dillinger's ideas are so dumb. I never got into this band and I just relized why.

it's kind of like they gave 50 gnomes and midget elves speed, finger limbering steroids and some instruments, recorded each gnome/elf for 4 seconds and turned it into a song.

Gil Sharone is amazing, but Chris wrote most of the music and all of the electronic stuff. This Message Edited On 11.13.07
