A fantastic album from front-to-back, Assemblage 23 continues to bring his A-game: from the production-to-vocals-to-lyrics. There’s something for everyone to walk away with from “Bruise.” Some Industrial, Synthpop acts come away sounding repetitive. However, Assemblage 23 music is a style that when you hear it, it’s not just instrumentation you have heard before – it’s clearly Assemblage 23. Front Line Assembly doesn’t release material as often as it once did and one of things I love about Front Line Assembly was the layers contained within their music. An environment is created and you are just one thing that makes up the environment and experience. I can’t recommend this album enough for people who like this genre or want something with a layered, fast sometimes aggressive edge. I feel energized.
