    One of the very best industrial albums of the decade. Thirlwell displays his genius in most of its songs. Though certainly not as good as Nail or Hide, Flow manages to take the listener to an utterly bizarre world. Highly recommendable.

  1. The downside here will be fairly obvious to anyone familiar with Thirlwell's previous output. While Flow's integration of big band jazz and other "external" musical styles is some of Thirlwell's most accomplished work to date -- creditable not only to better technology, but to the growth of his already respectable skills as a conventional composer -- its thematic elements remain the same.
  2. Granted, Flow's torrent of words is Thirlwell's familiar angsty blurt of near operatic proportions, but closer attention reveals his skill as an arranger, producer and rhythm sampler is now verging on the monumental. [#208, p.57]
  3. It's a solid return to form.
