3.0 out of 5 stars One excellent FLA track, the others speed drum'n'bass, 11 Jan 2007
This review is from: Artificial Soldier (Audio CD)
This is an ok album. It feels like half of the tracks are Frontline Assembly material, and the rest... something else. But what I find annoying is the continuos use of spastic speed drum'n'base rythms combined with somewhat cheesy loops, without any powerful base rythm. Frontline Assembly is now almost everything but industrial and futuristic, and seems to have a love for speed drum'n'bass, and generally seems to just follow whatever is main-stream electronica in the UK (they're not from UK, I know). So, in short, instead of developing on what was unique for them, Frontline Assembly now feels more like a cheap mixture of Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers, Orbital, plus speed drum'n'bass kind of projects. They can release that under a different label (like they've done before). Having said that, there are some rare fragments of dark FLA type of soundscapes (usually in intros and ends of this album's tracks), which I wish the tracks were developed upon instead. "Humanity (WW3)" is an excellent track and in my opinion the only that stands out like a true Frontline Assembly track of 2006.
