5.0 out of 5 stars What a debut!, 12 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Polars (Audio CD)
For a debut album this shows incredible maturity and proficiency. Textures incorporate elements of Death, Cynic, Meshuggah, some old school thrash and combine them to produce a album chock full of great riffs and jaw-droppingly awesome drumming.
Sure, as with any debut album, there's some shortfalls, but these are so few and far between that, especially when compared to the high points of the album, they simply pale into insignificance.
I really hope that Textures can keep the momentum going as they have the potential to become one of the biggest underground acts. They really deserve this as simply being a hidden gem of an act for those people in the know would be a great injustice.
The high point of the album for me has to be Polars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Sophomore Effort, 12 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Audio Injected Soul (Audio CD)
This album is a huge let down. I heard several tracks from Mechanical Spin Phenomenon and was blown away by the overall sound of the band, so I rushed off and bought both MSP and this album.
So, what's wrong with it? Well, it's just plain boring. The songs are formulaic in the extreme. Every song has the same structure and uses the same old tricks. Weird sound effects give way to huge crushing verse followed by melodic chorus.
The band have undoubtedly worked hard on their overall image and sound, but this album is, for me at least, a case of style over substance.
