'Hallucinating' feels like the wrong title for an album like this - Apartment 26 write amphetamine music. The drums line is fantastic, jittery - more drum'n'bass than straightforward metal, particularly on the standout opening track, 'Backwards'. Enmeshed with the heavy guitars are all sorts of electronic blips and sounds which makes this band sound all too unique now that Pitchshifter are off the scene. Some tracks like 'Doing it Anyway' sound more like cyber-industrial sound than anything that's going on in the metal scene. Also worth a mention are the vocals, as Biff is a multitalented man who sings, shouts, screams and sounds good through an effects module. This all adds fantastic variation to this album; it's not something I've ever got bored of. Finally, the liner notes are gorgeous; binary everywhere and the full lyrics, which is always nice. Not a reason to buy an album, maybe, but definitely one to appreciate it.
One of the best metal albums I've heard in a while, definitely. You like interesting ideas and melody as well as noise? Get this.
