3.0 goodKevinKC | December 14th 14

Smoke Bomb ! was really cool. This feels a bit boring at times. Yeah, they shift from one genre to the other without much difficulties and it makes the music somewhat diverse but not less boring. Honestly, the whole thing feels like a pose. It makes me think of Nickelback and I don't like it. Yes, hate me.

4.5 superbJared Floryan | November 14th 14

It's the intensity of Meshuggah mixed in with the sophistication of latter-day Dog Fashion Disco if they didn't have a saxophonist; actually, Silent Machine is Skindred with a white Australian for a vocalist. Well, you could say that this debut album has all of these groups as influences. Consistent from beginning to end, Twelve Foot Ninja combine a serious mood with a few tongue-in-cheek aspects in order to make what is almost a perfect first impression.

4.5 superbRedHorizon | March 30th 13

The first listen of Silent Machine will make you say and think "What the fuuuuuck??". But the more you listen to Twelve Foot Ninja, the more you will discover a band will massive potential crafting a beast album. Every song is so damn well written that even the most seemingly comical moments will become fundamentally important pieces to this complex yet masterful album. From the colorful opener "Coming For You" to the soulful and even groovy "Mother Sky" (which proves that reggae, jazz, and metal can meld together) to the gorgeously sounding "Liberation" (my favorite song on this album), pretty much anyone will hear a song that will intrigue them here. Fans of Meshuggah, Deftones, Cog, P.O.D., and Faith No More, please start lining up.

3.5 greatLunaticSoul | January 31st 13

Album is dispersive, but you clearly see they have a lot of (weird) ideas and they're not afraid to put them in practice. Also, they know how to write catchy choruses and make outstanding videos, which is a plus.

0.0 ASnideRemark | November 15th 12

The quintessential example of a perfect debut album. Mixing the right amount of fun with just the right amount of serious atmosphere, Twelve Foot Ninja have created an album with substance down to the very last nook and cranny of their sound. The sound on their album takes from an incredibly wide range of genres, folk, techno, metalcore, polka, reggae, you name it. Not to mention the instrumentation is fantastic and the vocals suit the music well. Twelve Foot Ninja are well on their way to make a fantastic imprint on the music scene.

Bump

4.0 excellentDrpibb | September 22nd 12

From what I've heard of the album (the 6 tracks that have been released), the CD is going to killer. 4.5 is my preliminary assuming all other tracks are just as good [hoping for a 5 if it exceeds my expectations!]
