    While Bell boasted that The Industrialist is "Demanufacture-plus," it's not quite. However, at certain times, it does come pretty close.

    What this all boils down to is another solid outing for the group.

    While anyone hoping for more of the same old Fear Factory will find a lot to love about The Industrialist, those who have been hoping for something different might find that the album isn't quite what they were looking for.

    The Industrialist doesn't quite live up to the band's former glories. [[9 Jun 2012, p.53]

    Fear Factory made a fantastic comeback with Mechanize, and some like myself were wondering whether or not Fear Factory would top it. Thankfully this album not only was as technical but lyrically one of the best albums Burton and Dino have written since Obsolete. My only gripes are the lack of a drummer and bassist and Burton could be a little more powerful as he was back on Mechanize. Aside from that, if you were disappointed in albums like Transgression then rush to your local record store and buy this along with Mechanize. Expand

    No really nothing new under the horizon but finally more aggressive rythm-section/drumcomputer. Strangely the computer-programming makes this release a bit more faster FF-record since a while. If it`s the best FF record, time will tell.
    But can`t wait for another FF-release!!
