5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Heavy Rock Album 3 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's a close call between this and Relationship of Command as to which is the best ATD-I album. Personally, the more traditional rock feel of this gives it the edge over the electronic sample fest of Relationship of Command. Arguably the best track here is the dark, haunting Napoleon Solo, despite it being possibly the least ATD-I style track on the album. More traditional fast and heavy tracks such as Chanbara and Transatlantic Foe are amongst the best the band have ever produced. However, it's the album as a whole which excels here, rather than individual tracks. Unlike many bands, where some tracks seem so similar that they almost result in an album sounding like one big, long song (sorry to name names, but The Offspring's Conspiracy Of One is the worst offender I've heard), this album has excellent variation in the style, mood and pace of the songs. Possibly the only flaw is that it doesn't go on for another 10 minutes (something Sparta rectified with their debut Wiretap Scars), as, at 38 minutes, it's a little on the short side, and unlike Idlewild's new album (same length as this), you don't feel totally fulfilled at the end of it.
Still, it's a great album, ATD-I's best, and anyone who reckons they love "true" rock music (not nu-metal trash) should have this on regular rotation on their stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does it all make sense now? 21 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm presuming that if you have come to read this, you already know something about the crazy ride that ATD-i are so this review will make comparisons with ROfC in some places seeing as everyone always wants to know if this album is good.
Personally, I prefer this record to ROfC, I think it has better melodies and is much more moving and subtle, rather than the exciting adrenalin rush of ROfC.
A lot of people prefer ROfC, although I think a lot of this is due to its superior production, and that people fail to see through this relatively lo-fi recording and hear the songs themselves.
Although this album lacks electronic madness of ROfC, it contains more crazy guitar parts and little things that make you go "ooh" while at the same time having more of a traditional rock edge to it. The song structures are easier to follow and in some places thing are almost, dare I say, predictable.
napoleon solo and lopsided are tow of my favourite songs ever, the way napoleon solo builds up, and has a really sudden quiet loud dynamic, is sheer genius. The slower pace and beautiful guitar parts that switch for big, harsh walls of noise make this song genius distilled. Did I forget to say the lyrics are top as well?
Lopsided is also brilliant, that simple riff and heartfelt chorus with its masterful pause are what brings this to another level. "does it all make sense now?" has to be one of my favorite vocal melodies ever!
Buy this album and see what it's like to emo without being whiney, this is some of the most genuinely moving music I have ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and amazing... 18 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In this album, At The Drive-In tried to capture their live sound in the studio. They did this by not tracking any of the songs (i.e. they all played as a band, instead of recording each instrument separately). This results in a slightly rough-sounding, energy packed album.
And my God, what an album it is. Almost at true classic status, and most certainly the best ATDI have ever done (even better than this years release, 'Relationship of Command'). If you consider yourself a fan of ATDI's music, then you should already have this. If not, buy it now.
I wish I could give it more than five stars.

This is probably ATD-I's most full-on rock album. This album might not have the creativity edge which occurs in Relationship Of Command but has the style and charisma which most rock bands are missing. This track starts off with intense, mind-blowing 'Alpha Centauri' which boasts some of the weirdest lyrics imaginable. Then 'Chanbara' kicks in with a hypnotising opening riff and high-pitched screaming along the way. 'Hoolahoop Wounds' contains some of the most interesting riffs in the album rolled into one song and a nice sing-a-long chorus. 'Napoleon Solo', considered one of ATD-I's most serious songs but doesn't lack in creativity with a cool intro riff. Pickpocket then picks up the pace again with another sing-a-long chorus and 'For now...we toast' tells of a prison break story. 'A Devil Amongst The Tailors' is one of my favourite tracks off the album because i love the style of the song and the everlasting feedback at the end. 'Shaking Hand Incision' varies a lot throughout the song by going loud then quiet and loud all the time. 'Lopsided' sounds like a single which has good use of clean guitar riffs. 'Hourglass' is the albums reflective moment with Jim Ward taking up lead vocals. Sparta fans will be proud of this song. And the album rounds nicely off with 'Transatlantic Foe'.

The follow up to their breakthrough album 'Acrobatic Tenement' and the album that REALLY brought the world’s attention to At The Drive-In, that’s if you hadn’t already seen their extraordinary live show that none of their albums ever managed to recreate. Although to many it does not live up to ‘Relationship Of Command’ (Are you mad?), maybe in finesse, 'I/C/O' undeniably matches and possibly even surpasses 'ROC' in displaying the raw emotion and energy behind ATD-I. Personally, the most striking track on this album is “Hourglass” as out of all their attempts at a slower more sensational output this is their only real success! Granted “198d” and “Non-Zero Possibility” were amazing, but “198d” suffered as his voice was not as penetrating and “Non-Zero Possibility” was stronger but too violent for a soft track.
'I/C/O' is perfect for building up to 'ROC' and you could even play them amongst tracks from the two subsequent outputs and wouldn’t really notice. The only noticeable thing is that the sound is a lot more unrefined here and is still in the process of development; there is still some experimentation with strongly different beats, styles, and electronic sounds. Yet no matter how far back you go with ATD-I they always put out some of the best hardcore (punk/emo/rock whatever…) you will hear in pretty much most your lifetime (I expect). As with all their work favourites and any criticism is very personal and differs from one person to the next, but one thing that can be said is it appeals to a wide range so if you like any fast and heavy guitar styles then you will love this. My personal faves are “Chanbara”, “Napoleon Solo”, “A Devil Among The Tailors”, “Lopsided” and “Transatlantic Foe”. Simply a powerful, fierce and energetic combination of catchy rock riffs and inspiring vocals.
