FLA is a SONIC ELECTRONIC BULLDOZER. That's about the most concise way I can describe how this album feels to me.
'Alone' is hands down my top pick here, although I do find 'Rubber Tube Gag' sticking in my brain a lot, too.
My one criticism (constructive of course) is that sometimes the lyrics feel underinspired, but it's not a big issue in the grander context of this otherwise excellent album. This one definitely grows on you, too. Good stuff, and solidly recommended.
Long live FLA! Benjamin Crockett
From humble beginnings a decade-and-half ago, to now prowling the scene like an aged, ravished animal, Front Line Assembly only keeps getting more fierce and precise with "Eye On You". Or, if that's not quite your fit when trying to avoid surveillance, you also got two remixes: Terence Fixmer with a "chasing through tunnels" anthem, and Orphx with a mind-wrenching stomper.
