@Shadowcast: You should try the older stuff more. I don't like their newest works all that much myself either. Not my all-time favorite band anyway but they have some damn great bright spots in their insanely vast discography.
i don't "get" this band. i love noise, i love technoid, i've really tried....but i end up just thinking these guys are terrible, pretty much every time. earlier stuff is more likable, but mercury - the first i've heard since adverts - really didn't do anything for me at all. what am i not getting about these guys?
I agree.. I hope this dubstep stuff is a phase and they can return to their original sound.. Although I bet they're pretty bored with their own style, so they might change to something else.. Who knows..
The new album ("Reformation") is out now and can be checked out here at http://www.last.fm/music/Somatic+Responses/Reformation
And X-Truder: I think you'll like this one a lot more than the previous CD, then.
oh my god i just love IDM so so so so much this is the best music ever and i fuckign love saying Intelligent Dance Music we must stop electronics and this is soooooooooo aggressive and marks me out to kill me!!!!!!!
