This album had some catchy stuff and some heavy elements just as well. I am about 2 albums shy of having their whole entire collection. Overall, I enjoyed their psychotic industrial vision and this album helps add to it. Times change and people change. Everyone has a favorite band or two that has left behind a defining sound to try explore new horizons. Skinny Puppy are no different. We should be so glad that we can get the type of variety out of one band in a world now filled with banal, boring, and simply generic label-manufactured bands.
I think change is necessary to stay relevant. How could a band be less relevant by changing when indeed time is also contantly changing? Anyway, the newer Puppy sound is definitley more modern electronic to be sure. Although, what has not change and shouldn't is their core sound. The dark and grim atmospherics are still there. I do miss the horror film samples that I had fun figuring out which film they came from, but the lush complexities in the newer production style gives Mythmaker an Pasturn - Skinny Puppy - Mythmaker feel.
I notice also an Aphex Twin-esque influence with the trip-hop break-beats. The electronic drums have become WAY more intricate and varied which I think is a good thing. The beats will dance all around your head with this record. The melodicness is also great especially when paired with SP's usual dark themes. There is mild sampling on this album, but obviously not as much as past efforts. Most notable is the sample from Body Snatchers in Dal. Ogre's voice is distorted more than ever, and certainly more than his solo project, but its is more of a robotic distortion and less a monsterous one like the Puppy of old.
To make a long story short, if you are a die-hard Skinny Puppy fan from way back AND also have an open mind then you will enjoy this album thoroughly.
This is a great album filled with lush soundscapes and production, killer dark synth lines and the usual disturbing and violent lyrical imagery. Please don't even bother comparing this to past releases.
