Ive heard alot of hate towards this album by a few people. This was the first time id listened to it in its entirety and i can honestly say this album is f***ing badass maybe even better than mechanized and obsolete. Its heavy the melodys are great dinos ripping it up and the drums well they speak for themselfs. Is it hogan or a drum machine they used in the studio? God eater and recharger are the stand out tracks for me.
f***in loving it

Oh and i forgot to say the two tracks at the end dont bother me that there instrumentals it sets a good tone, after all it is a concept album about robots. It would suck if you got the normal version because your only get 8 "real" songs, imma go out n get the special edition

wow.... didn't understand all the hate for the last two tracks until I actually heard them.... "let's d*** around in software tools a bit and call it the closing two songs." Are you kidding me? what a waste.

the rest was 'good' in my opinion. not blown away. better than obsolete? hell no, not in any way shape or form, from originality to composition, obsolete stands above all.

i can't say i'm "getting tired" of dino's guitar playing because i already got tired of it with mechanize. seriously. the guy only needs the bottom 2 strings on his guitar. he should start playing shows with the other strings removed entirely.

i will say, upon another listen, regardless of my complaints, track #5 was really damn good, as was most of #7.

but i stand by what i say about dino's progression as a guitarist. he's just lucky to be in a band where it's even slightly, barely, acceptable for the sound.

1, 2, 5 and 7 are pretty much the album. I especially like 5 and 7.

Good offering, just not Obsolete. Didn't live up to the hype it generated in my mind. Could've been a hell of a lot better, but what'cha gonna do? Not every album can be a crushing mind f*** and that just makes the special albums keep their place on top.

i haven't listened to the album yet. i liked mechanize, but for some reason many of the songs are very forgettable. i was a big fan of obsolete, archetype, and demanufacture. i'll have to give this a listen though. i mean, it's f***ing fear factory.

Say what you want, my pick for album of the year, thus far. Nile might knock it out of the park, though...

Now that I’ve had time to live with the disc for a few days here are my thoughts…
My first impressions were good but not great but like all stellar discs it simply takes time to really settle in.
Multiple spins have been kind.
All in all it remains in my top three for FF.
I’ll list them in this order…

Industrialist.
Mechanize.
Demanufacture.

“Woah”…I’m sure many of you are saying, “it surpasses Mech, and Deman?….BrianMN you’re on crack.”
Um…not really, here’s why….

Sound wise it’s almost identical to Demanufacture.
But songwriting wise it’s much better.
The overall flow of the songs is simply perfection.
The layers upon layers of sound, like I said just don’t sink in on the first listen.
Burton’s vocals have never sounded this spot on, ever.
Yes, out of all FF’s catalog I would call Industrialist the most well rounded album they’ve done, and the most mature.
Even New Messiah has grown on me.
And no, these are not the rantings of an obsessive fantard (maybe a little).
I also have to hand it to Candlelight, I got the digipack and the quality is amazing. More like a book than a cd.
Lyrics?
Honestly after all these years, I couldn’t care less about lyrical content anymore but I’ll read them eventually.
The two bonus tracks….Landfill is pretty sweet but Blush Response isn’t really my thing.
All in all, album of the year?

Hmmm….
There’s going to be a ton of goodies this year.

So far…
Amon, Liar in Wait
Fear Factory, The Industrialist
Meshuggah, Koloss
Borknagar, Urd
