The best album ever made?
I think so.
I first heard it when i was 14, and i nearly threw up.
my second-ever gig, supporting System of a Down in (I think) 2002. I didn't think much of those songs when I first heard them (I actually believe I laughed).
Now of course, the tables are entirely turned. Caculating Infinity is incredible.
a friend took me to see Dillinger, and Mono were supporting....I was quite blown away. Especially considering that I wasn't really familiar with either of the bands at the time.
for your first ever!
Apart from all their others? And Catch 33 by Meshuggah. Dead fuckin' right.
of all time. Possibly the best album to listen to if you want to forget about whatever your thinking about, there's nothing like it.
It's certainly DEP's best album. As far as this genre goes though, Lye by Mistake's Arrangements for Fulminating Vective blows it out of the water. Yarp.
I fully agree. Calculating Infinity ia an incredible record, but you can't deny the upwards progression they've made.
ok..i haven't heard their latest.
so that was hasty.
but miss machine was shite
then youll fucking hate the new one.
he agreed with my analysis of miss machine being terrible attempt patton worship and NIN-lite electronica.
He said they have come back to form in the latest release.
I will check it out in case he's right
That's true. Apart from the it being shite. Because it's actually amazing.
it's a much more concise and creative album, and much more entertaining to listen to. '...Infinity' is still kick-ass mind
the heaviest album ever made. Apart from their eps the other stuff just doesn't compare. Destro's Secret and Clip The Apex are terrifying.
I wouldn't be surprised if it kills a few brain cells each time you listen to it, yet at the same time it's pretty clever music. I definitely need to give it some playing time soon, I liked Ire Works so it's not completely unknown teritory for me.
but i much prefer Miss Machine.
<insert people rabbling on about how wrong i am here>
<click link on DEP from around a month ago to see the arguments i've already put forth re: what you heard first>
Miss Machine and Ire Works is that comparatively, I get bored of them.
Thats certainly true for Miss Machine, Ire Works is a much better fare, there are just certain tracks I find myself skipping (Black Bubblegum, Acting As A Particle, Sick On Sunday) which spoil the flow of the album.
This has never happened for Calculating Infinity, its completely spot on the whole way through. There is never a single song you relgiously know all the way through, there will always be one little tweak or change in time or dischord you are not expecting.
I am not one of the diehards about the old style though, the progression theyve made is badass, and Ire Works has some of their best songs on it, in terms of a full album though, I enjoy Calculating Infinity.
but i wouldn't go with best album ever, nor would i call it their best album, as i cannot choose.
It is the best debut album this excellent band put out.
There - we can all agree.
i only have miss machine and ire works but i love both
i said i was going to buy it a while back but i never got round to buying it
I've never heard of this album or band. So I've just listened to a few clips on allmusic.
Woah. Jesus Fuck. I'll be getting this :D
but Minus's Jesus Christ Bobby pisses on it (as it does most other albums)
but in no way pisses on it. calculating infinity eats that for breakfast :)
in terms of miss machine i started listening to it again recently and have really really started to love it. i wasn't massively convinced when it came out, liking some tracks more than others, but i've checked it out again now and i really think it's blinding. even unretrofied ;) people should go back to it again for a fresh perspective. i bet you'll change ur opinion
take away arctic adventure and Jesus Christ Bobby is PERFECT
its fucking sweet, but CMUUUN!!!!
"I SMELL THAT WHORE"
you shouldnt get these matter of taste things wrong.
Metal album I own anyway.
MM is crap
Ire Works is quite good, was pleasantly surprised.
also Variations on a Cocktail Dress is like a recurring nightmare, one of my all time favourites. I like how the songs usually start with a simplified version of the way the song will end, and then in between is a mental build up to that point, genius construction.
