    i consider skinny puppy one of the most unique and talented creations of contemporary music within the last 25 years. i am myself a devoted fan and listen to their music at least weekly. this new album is equal parts departure and pathetic. it is easily the worst album they've ever made i can't believe it's the same band. it is utterly a joke.

    I remembering SP talking about a NIN demo they got in the late 80s, they called it ?Crotch Rock?. I wonder what they would have thought about TGWOTR back then? I see people saying to be open-minded and not to compare this to old SP. Well, if I wasn't comparing this to old SP I would hate it even more and when I am in an open-minded mood I will go listen to Too Dark Park or Last I remembering SP talking about a NIN demo they got in the late 80s, they called it ?Crotch Rock?.

Well, if I wasn't comparing this to old SP I would hate it even more and when I am in an open-minded mood I will go listen to Too Dark Park or Last Rights (which challenged conventions not stooped to them). This is like SP for Dummies. All the interesting abstracted sounds have been replaced by nu-guitars and clean cut dance beats. Simply compare any track on TGWOTR with something like Mirror Saw and you would think the new stuff is KMFDM. If there is so little in common why call it SP? The only person I can imagine being pleased with this nu-puppy is Rick Ruben. Someone call him and tell him they finally made The Process he wanted. Expand

    Their noisy attack has downright melodic elements, and the album exudes an energy that was mostly sporadic in their previous material. [Sep 2004, p.140]

    The names Pitchshifter, Nine Inch Nails and Rammstein are often bandied about in this company, but here’s a tip: Skinny Puppy have rendered them once again irrelevant.
  3. Shows Skinny Puppy at the top of their game once again.
