In Silico might be the second album from Pendulum, but it's their first as a fully-fledged rock band. Of course, this Australian dance collective have paddled in these waters before: their debut album Hold Your Colour was a muscular collection of hard drum'n'bass and slamming breakbeats that, for all its synthetic construction, displayed firmly rock sensibilities. On In Silico, though, hard-riffing guitars are pulled right up in the mix, and the band's production core, Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, lead from the front, reaching for the microphone and making clattering loops the bedrock for a suite of anthemic rockers. Comparisons to the likes of Enter Shikari and The Prodigy are not too wide of the mark, capturing something of Pendulum's fairground waltzer adrenaline and polished, metallic aggression. Beyond straightforward rush, though, some interesting ingredients find their way into the brew: storming opener "Slowdown" imagines an unholy synthesis of DJ Hype and Muse in full progressive rock-out mode, while the elegiac "Propane Nightmares" commences with a Mariachi trumpet serenade. Dance connoisseurs will probably complain Pendulum's beats lack a certain finesse, but if you like your dance music a) fast and b) hard then In Silico has all bases covered. --Louis Pattison

Let me start this review by stating I am a metalhead, my cd collection consists mostly of hardcore metal bands and I am not into dance music but this album has blown me away.
Pendulums new direction my upset a few old skool fans as this album has a lot more rocker feel and it has this cross-over sound showcasing many influences that I think sets them appart from most bands. The heavy beats Pendulum are famous for are still there, but they also dabble in snarling guitars, electronica and emo influences.
Think prodigy without the punk edge and you will not be far off.
This album is a brave step but in my view it has paid off in a big way.
Pendulum are the cross-over kings!

First of all, i would like to say that if you dont like drum and bass, then it doesnt matter cos pendulum are no longer drum and bass. This album is AMAZING. I would also like to say to all the dnb fans: OPEN YOUR MIND, THEY ARE QUALITY AT WHAT THEY DO! They used drum and bass as a means of creating their own music, after having made a name for themselves in the genre, and hopefully now more artists will come along with having been influenced by them. Tis album is made to confuse the dnb fan with all sorts of diversity, like Hold Your Colour, but completely different. Here's a 'lowdown' on the tracks:

1. Showdown - 10/10 This is a great funky rock tune, introduced with some swift vocals saying how great pendulum are and that they are no longer drum and bass! They still show some old touches with a bit sounding like Slam, but use guitar solos and it has an emo style ending

2. Different - 9/10 A really good track with good lyrics to go with it. Sounds like Muse and has an obvious touch of the Prodigy. Nice and relaxed after a rocking first track.

3. Propane Nightmares - 10/10 Absolutely phenomenal track, the album's second single. This has everything: a great intro, emo singing with a jaunty tune, smashing drum and bass, heavy rock beats and an emotive synth solo using pendulum's trademark distorted vocals. SICK

4. Visions - 10/10 My personal favourite. Again the distorted vocals work a treat with a banging intro, then a cool melody with nostalgic guitar solos and synths, then after the break a hard-hitting instrumental. So far the album has shown musical talent, creativity and initiative. Pendulum now make songs, not tunes.

5 Midnight Runner - 8/10 At last, a kind of dnb track. Starts off slowly then gets heavy.

this cd was brought in by one of my 16-year-old's friends. It is the first bit of music that any of this group of metalheads have played that I have enjoyed. I will go further. I love it - I usually like clubby stuff, trance (loads of different Euphoria in my collection) so this is a bit different for me. Anyway this old lady likes pendulum, you too may find that it makes it easier to live in a house full of male teenagers.

I suppose I'm in the minority here, but I don't really notice much overall difference between this and Hold Your Colour. Maybe if you compare Tarantula to the style of some of the tracks on here, my meaning will be a bit clearer. The only real difference for me was that there are more vocals in this album and the first use of a guitar (in The Tempest). Maybe it's just because the slight change in style doesn't bother me, I don't know.

I've loved pendulum for quite a while now and always will. The (possibly) slight change in this album from the last has swayed me less than global warming has. Who cares if there are extra vocals? The songs are still amazing!!! You could go crazy to virtually all the tracks on here.

The thing I love about Pendulum is that none of their songs are bad (in my opinion), and therefore all those on here are good. The ones that stick out for me most are the hugely catchy and addictive Showdown, Granite, Propane Nightmares, and Mutiny, The Other Side (with it's catcy lyrics), Visions (with its synthesised sounds), and The Tempest (because it is structured in a clever way that creates the mood of a storm developing). Like I said, none of them are bad, but these seem the most bold to me.

Propane Nightmares has been Pendulum's biggest hit, reaching #9 in the UK singles chart and therefore appearing on Now 70. Having said that, how could you possibly say it's rubbish with terrible lyrics?! This album itself got to #2 in the albums chart

For anyone who is unsure about this due to this supposed "change", ignore the other reviews.

Right, first things first... If you are expecting Hold Your Colour part deux I'm afraid you may be left wanting. This is less drum n' bass and more a D n' B/Rock hybrid, a path that if anyone was listening after their first album should come as no great shock (both Blood Sugar and their remix of 'Hold Your Colour' were leaning towards big, rock-esque riffs). The big question is... Is it any good?

That would of course depend on your stance. If you are a D n' B head through and through, know your Maldini's from your Brookes Brothers and your liquid from your tech step, you are going to feel short changed. I used to fall into this camp and in fairness, on first listen I wasn't blown away by this album. Pendulum have veered very heavily into rock territory, and it definitely won't be for everyone, especially the pure heads.

That said, if you like absolutely city levelling riffs, bass that will cave your head in and drums so snappy they could puch a whole through a concrete wall, you may well get into this. Some of the vocals feel a bit forced and unneccessary, and a couple tracks don't seem to have any real direction, but make no mistake, there are some heavyweight tunes here. If you can find it, pick up the limited edition, as the VIP remix of Propane Nightmares is just SICK.

So, is it better than Hold Your Colour? For me, no. Hold Your Colour was an album so far ahead of it's time, chock full of innovation and the kind of sounds never even concieved up to then. Pendulum were fresh, brimming with idea's and knocking out classic after classic. In Silico by contrast does feel like a bit of a sell out, the production is still absolutely top class, but it feels as if they are trying a little too hard.

Despite this, I enjoy this album a lot, and if you are prepared to approach it with an open mind, you should find something here to enjoy too.
