3.5 greatMarko Polovina | October 19th 10

Sometimes we dislike change and despite what people might think about Gang of Four 20 years ago when this album was released its clearly a different sound. Electronic and voice samples play a major part in their '95 effort and it works for the most part. The mixing on this album is quite dark and masks a lot of the instrumental work that once was a bright light for the group, instead focusing on the more calm King vocals, other than the normal shouts we all loved on his first 3 albums. Shrinkwrapped in essence is a modern day 90's record by Gang of Four, who still possess both musical vitality in both a lyrical and instrumental sense. The production does muddle things a bit, almost shutting out a stabbing guitar that really propels this record. A pleasant surprise by all means, especially since this was their second reformation, it sounds like a more reinvigorated Gang of Four, which still have some massive quality left within them.
