Skinny Puppy - The Greater Wrong of the Right
Industrial One of our Swedish magazines in this genre has written "Skinny Puppy delivers the goods..." and it's said that Skinny Puppy now finally are back after 8 years of production silence. I on the other hand have chosen to place myself on the other site of the white stroke which has been drawn on the ground.

First of all I would like to make one thing clear. I think this is a very good album if you just for one second ignore that Skinny Puppy is written on the front and only focus on the musical part. It's hard to really point out what exactly is so great about it, but it all feels new, different and you really get thorn away by the performance.

Still I would like to really point out that this is not a Skinny Puppy-album. Nivek Ogre do not use his voice in any way that he did during the time with Skinny Puppy, now days rather with the digital remade raping voice similar with the productions of his project ohGr. However I think you should notice that the cool up speeded and down pitched changes of the voice is really neat and I don't think I've heard it in this genre before (Except a few seconds during the last track "DaddyuWarbash" which painfully reminds me of Scooter). Cevin Key who also has helped producing the ohGr material seems to have got stuck with that style of music since it in all ways similar with just... ohGr. Further on I wonder were all the political and controversial samples have gone? I've listened to the album and I could only locate two small and insignificant samples. In days like these it seems like you have more material than ever.

In its whole it feels kind of like stuffing down socks in a push up bra, when the action really begins it's not quite what you have expected. If the word ohGr had been written on the cover I guess I would have appreciated it more.
