3.5 greatAlabaster Jones | June 29th 16

This album, along with its predecessor, are what most consider to be the darkest in the Skinny Puppy canon. For my money, Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse is a bit more disturbing than Cleanse Fold And Manipulate, but that doesn't mean the latter album is one to miss at all. It's a pretty nice extension of the explosive, corrosive, synth-heavy EBM/Electro-Industrial sound that no one has been able to match before or since. The guitar is a more pronounced part of the concoction this time around, but the synths still run the show along with the horridly perfect samples and chilling vocals. Half of the time, while the beats pulse onward and the eeriness of the synths works its way through, the vocals are more terrifying spoken word than the classic throaty bark. Needless to say, though it may seem a bit desultory next to its predecessor, Cleanse is still a quality album in a unique sound, thanks to the geniuses behind Skinny Puppy.

3.5 greatBritch2tiger | March 6th 16

One of the many more condensed (better imo) industrial albums that Skinny Puppy will provide in their upcoming discography. Another album that proves that what time goes into your tracks can make a significant difference from making a track either boring or intriguing. In this case, the album is a tad short of equaling to that of Caustic Grip (Front Line Assembly album). Has a heavy beginning but eventually becomes very groovy by the middle.
