Rise of a Digital Nation,
This review is from: Rise Of A Digital Nation (Audio CD)
Rise of a Digital Nation is Machinae Supremacy's latest album. It is a refreshing update to their sid-metal style which will please more mainstream-oriented newcomers while still keeping fans of their earlier material happy.
Overall, I found most of the album to have some some catchy and enjoyable songs. None of the songs is really disappointing, although in the end, in terms of how rememberable the tunes are, I would not rank this album as highly as Overworld, Redeemer, or A View from the End of the World, inter alia. However, this album is still very pleasant to have in the background, and does contain some truly epic hits such as 99 and Laser Speed force which will knock you off your feet. Furthermore, it really reflects the continuous technical improvement made by the band, and in particular Robert Stjärnström, who has many occasions to show off the improvements to his voice and vocal range in this album.
To summarise, while this is not the best album yet, it remains thoroughly enjoyable and would make a good addition to any MaSu fan's collection, as well as a good purchase for anyone curious about this band's sound.
