This ablum has the best song they have done that sounds like old the 'refused' although in a creative fun way just like the last refused album.
That song is 'smash it up!' its excellent and is their best song so far up to the armed love album. trust me you will be singing it with ya mates!
survival sickness, imposter costume, the reproduction of death are other highlights on this album.
check out 'a new morning, changing weather' album, as thats the second best serious song with the same name and it has 'up for sale' which I rank as the third best.
get both albums the other songs featuring will grow on you.
oh and make sure u listen to the lyrics as the fun nature, hides some serious meanings that relate to the bands punk origins.
They are my most listened to band along with refused.
never did like fast punk as its soulless, get this and hear the future of punk!.

Ok, this is a really interesting listen. In a day where 'punk' is considered to be the likes of apathy-skateboarder scum like Blink 182 or Sum 41, it is refreshing to have a band that is, you know, real punk. The International Noise Conspiracy take their fierce situationist\anti-establishment manifesto (a la Manics and Sex Pistols) and force it into their style which is in itself a fascinating mix. One minute their pure Who or Rolling Stones rock, next minute theyve subtley become the Hives. the BANG you're in the middle of a funk section that puts the chilli peppers to shame.
The production on this album is fantastic and really lends to the variety of sounds that INS create with guitars, percussion and keyboards. It also shows up though when you listen to a more raw album like The First Conspiracy, which isnt a scratch on this. Survival Sickness is a top album, with standout tracks like I Wanna Know about U, Subversive Sounds and Reproduction of Death.
I suppose the main dissappointment would be that a band with so much to say on its sleeve notes, doesnt really put it very eloquently in its lyrics. Of course its politically motivated, but it cant compare with the way predecessors Manics and Pistols manage it on their debut albums.
Putting this aside though, this album is energetic, intelligent and pretty original... good introduction to an interesting band

From the ashes of hardcore band "Refused" comes this Situationist rock album that really is fantastic. The 60's sound perhaps captures the time of the Situationist peek of activaty. Note also the liner notes which almost make this worth getting for alone.

HASH(0x8db95ac8) out of 5 stars Guts and Groove and Great Politics 16 May 2000
By John Giuffo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those lucky enough to have caught the brief, brilliant inferno that was Refused, a post-punk, post-hardcore outfit from Sweden, Noise Conspiracy is just the thing. Same lead singer, different mission. Noise Conspiracy bridges the gap between Refused, Fugazi and the (vastly overrated) John Spencer Blues Explosion. It's a solid, groove-filled mix of angry punk, pop, soul and R&B, with a Rage Against the Machine bit of unflinching leftist politics thrown in. While the world wallows in sugar pop in an earnest effort to out-Orwell Orwell (remember the scene where Winston leans out of his window and listens to the clothes-washing woman humming a popular tune, which he described as catchy but utterly meaningless?) Noise Conspiracy have realized what many other artists and anti-establishment types are beginning to: that at a time when the underground has been invaded, co-opted and destroyed by the global marketing machine, the only true underground left is that which seeks to poison and destroy what is above ground. That's an approach that's beyond co-opting, and it makes for soul-filling music. BUY THIS!

HASH(0x8da65d5c) out of 5 stars rock and politics 23 May 2000
By ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
at first, i didn't like the international noise conspiracy because it was on epitaph. but the more i listened, the better it became. it's following a newer trend in hardcore, that of the straight up rock band. very catchy and fairly frantic, the international noise conspiracy delivers their agenda in a form you'll probably be humming for the rest of the day. it must be said that the singer of refused is in this band, and it feels like an extension of their record "the shape of punk to come" which i didn't particularly care for as much as their older records. and for the record, refused was around for years, not a brief time. pick this up if you like a bit of intelligence in your rock.

HASH(0x8e258204) out of 5 stars rip-off the make-up and delta '72 21 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was looking forward to this record. Though it is good, it is a total rip-off of The Make-Up and the band Delta '72. If you are into that R&B gospel rock this is your record. I expected more from Dennis (singer from Refused) since that last Refused record was so intensely amazing, but oh well.
For a much better "ex-Refused" band, I would recommend COBOLT and their album "Spirit On Parole"...it is way better than this record.

HASH(0x8dba0888) out of 5 stars Needs more intensity to be "punk" 13 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a fan of late 70's and 80's punk, I have high expectations of any musicians described as such. I just don't hear passion in either the vocals, the instrumentals or the lyrics on this album (occassional yelling does not equal passion); there are some good tracks and catchy riffs, but folks, it ain't punk.
I agree for the most part with the previous reviewers, esp. ryan from Chicago (05/23/00) that INC's sound may well be the near future of this branch of hardcore, for good or ill. I also hear some similarity to Ian Svenonius' and Steve Gamboa's work (instrumentals remind of The Make-Up; the vocals are closer to Svenonius' earlier work in Nation of Ulysses). My three stars are mostly for the appealing minimal instrumentals on tracks like "Will It Ever Be Quiet" and "Smash It Up" and the relatively energetic (for this album) "Enslavement Blues" and "Subversive Sound", which unfortunately isn't.
As for politics and intelligence, there is "a bit" to be found in these lurics, but it's limited to the pop-pseudo-politicism that runs out of steam at the coffee house that's on the way to the anti-IMF rally.
Survival Sickness is a decent middle ground between contemporary alternative and contemporary hardcore, with a hint of funk and blues on the side, but is too tepid to appeal to most hardcore fans and not straight-and-narrow enough to appease the alternative crowd.
