Mono-Amine - Like A Machine
Industrial, Noise Do you ever feel like your mind is Like A Machine? Pumping away at thoughts that don't seem to work right? Well this album is like that except on the ears. Poor production management and mixing of too many flavors from the industrial genre make this album feel like a head ache. Between the consistent shifts that make for an uneasy listening experience, and the tedious tandem of the changes in pace, the album continuously feels like a day in a factory where everything has gone horribly wrong.

There are moments of a refreshing breath of air but only long enough to realize that what the listener is listening to will not get any better. The synths are rugged at best and the parallels in the Khz amp out-put are something left to be desired. In short I truly would not recommend this to any true fan of the industrial music genre and can't see as how it made it up for review. Between the constant aggravations the listener will feel trying to sit down and enjoy the music versus that of someone actually trying to dance to this drek would make even the most jaded rivet-head laugh out of sheer exasperation.

In closing, I would give this a 1 point over 3 for the sole reason that it is at least an attempt at trying. Unfortunately for this group though, the Machine broke.
