4.0 out of 5 stars A neat third effort, 18 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Immersion (Audio CD)
With the critics baying, Pendulum released their third studio album, ready to be shredded to pieces or recieved warmthfully. After a smashing debut album `Hold Your Colour', it was the second album `In Silico' which pretty much transformed the Australian electronica outfit from D&B smashers to rock, chart-toppers. With numerous headline slots behind them and several high chart entry's, the masses were expecting another commercialised album to further enchance their reputation.

However, fear not - in `Immersion' we have a fun, experimental album. Whilst `Salt in the Wounds' sounds like a sped-up version of `Slam' from the debut album, the rest can be spoke highly of. `Watercolour' providing that festival, sing-a-long hands in the air track that will energise crowds in the muddy fields around the summer.

In what will potentially be an album that will sound better off on a live stage, rather than plugged through your i-pod, the range of sounds in `Set me on Fire' is a joy to listen to; ranging from the prodigy-style screaming vocal sample, to the tribal drums in a dubstep influenced vortex of sounds.

The focal point and most intruiging is the double-part dusk/dawn affair on track numbers 8 and 9 collectively known as `The Island'. From energetic pumping tracks we set upon a more subdued standard electro number, compact with thick basslines, then stirring into an absolute dance-affair simalar to the sound of `MSTRKRFT' or `Justice', the contrast so stark and surprising that it really is a wonderful listen on the first time. Not to say that it isn't a joy to listen to multiple times, but the element of surprise is an excellent idea.

If that wasn't enough, then we morph into a Swedish metal band with the help of `In Flames' in `Self vs Self' really showing the innotiveness of this third album. The whole affair feels full of effort and a desire to please the critics, but also remain commercial enough to remain sucessful and well done it was, with full credit to Pendulum.
