Haven't had a solid album since Machine. Shadow Zone had moments.

^Agreed...In Static's case, simplicity is sheer brutality and I'm definitely lookin forward to some spacey-industrial a$$ kicking!

Eh, they're still alright. Nothing real special though, in my opinion.

Start a War was kind of watered down, but Cannibal was pretty good. First disc is really good, 2nd is ok. Good live. Never heard much of Shadow Zone.

I havn't even heard anything since Shadow Zone, other than a song here and there. Nothing impressed me so I didn't look any further into it. Machine and Wisconsin Death Trip remain some of my favourite albums to date though. They're fun, heavy, groovy and psychotic. It's a good mix.

I think you should try Cannibal, psythe. It really reminds me of Machine. I agree Start a War was disappointing. Shadow Zone...I don't know, it was watered down but I still enjoyed it for some reason.

true? I'll give Cannibal a go, then. When I get to it lol. Start a War had... one?... song I liked. No, not even liked, just thought it was halfway decent.

first 3 or 4 songs on Start a War are ok... but like I said earlier, compared to their other albums it's lacking something.
The Trance is the Motion was a great song off the first disc.

I liked Love Dump and it sounded awesome LIVE..I agree..Static X was great in concert. I still like Wisconsin Death Trip-CD the best. I could listen to that album all the way through. Gave me a lot of energy listening to it. I am a huge fan of industrial musik. I hope this new album brings back the industrial sound. I need to listen to Cannibal all the way through. Cannibal, the song, was good, though.

I saw Static-X live after "Machine" was released and they were great. "Shadow Zone" and "Start a War" were pretty boring, but I actually thought "Cannibal" was a pretty solid CD.. nothing spectacular, but I don't think I skipped more than a couple songs.
