As a songwriter, not a drummer. I prefer Gil's style even though Chris may be technically more proficient.

I just felt like Chris was the one drummer meant for DEP.

having read through the comments, it seems i may be one of, possibly THE, first person to say this, but i think ire works is quality.

experimentatal progression, diversity, melody, insanely good musicianship, distilled agression...it's not a better dillinger, but one that is mostly as good.

^ i agree, but i think it's more of a grower. i've certainly grown to like it a little more each time i listen...

Ahhh, Ire Works. So far, better than Miss Machine, but still doesnt hold a candle to Calculating Infinity. I really just dont like Greg.

I don't mind the drums but i do miss chris.

This definitely grew on me, and I'm liking it more than miss machine. This band doesn't sound like the band that wrote calculating infinity though so I can't even compare it to that.

LOL, I love these kids ripping on Irony b/c Patton is all over it, which is the reason it's EASILY the best thing DEP ever did, CI and most definitely MM included. This album is a load of meh though.

Irony is great, but not better than Calculating. Mike Patton is the man though.

That EP is great but it's definitely not because of Patton

I'm sorry, but I don't get the hating on Miss Machine. I think it's an amazing album, I actually prefer that to Calculating Infinity. Greg is a good vocalist. He knows how to structure his vocals with the song.

I like it, it's growing on me every moment. It's a good album, proving that DEP is ridiculously consistent with each release.

Excellent album, awful band.....well, I shouldnt say that. Their musicianship is off the wall, yet they've always have had an iritating lead singer.

Greg is pretty good, though doesn't fit their style as much as Dimitri.

i'm a fan of the album, but i think it is short. i really wanted Sick on Sunday to be
fleshed out a lot more, and was hoping for a lot more with the "When Acting as a
Particle/Wave" songs. Sleeping Giants got me into Dillinger, as i couldn't actually
tolerate Panasonic Youth when i first heard it. it was too frantic for me at the
time, and it just didn't process at all in my brain. i couldn't physically work out
what was going on for ages, it was just too much to handle. over time i learned to
appreciate the wrest of the songs more as i bought the album solely for Sleeping
Giants. i think Horse Hunter (which actually starts fairly similar to Destro's Secret)
is my favourite song on the album so far, as it starts out chaotically but softens to
that really great vocal ending. i don't think i dislike any songs, but i'm
dissapointed at the general length, and lack of jazz breaks. so i like the songs on
IW that are more 4 structured, but i can see why a lot of you guys dislike it as a
whole

perhaps if Benoit was still there too there woudn't have been such a huge
difference? all past Dillinger albums had two guitarists writing the material, this
only has oneThis Message Edited On 11.14.07

Ben, pretty much, writes the guitars. Maybe not all of it, but he is the predominate writer. I hear a slight revert to the Calculating days the more I listen to this. Not enough to make me happy, but never the less, its something. Its growing on me. Although some of the songs on here do suck.
