    Inspired by the disconnect and toxicity of social media, and the general discord sewn when the internet and the ego collide, Egowerk evokes the friction-fueled lo-fi emissions of the band's early days, but with a more measured hand.

    On Egowerk, the Faint seem to have accepted their place in questioning the perpetual struggle.

    There's very little room for manoeuvre at times, which can make Egowerk a challenging if frustrating listen.

    The music has retained its urgent physicality. Still, it’s probably for the best that the Faint continue working at their recent leisurely pace of about an album every half decade, because this band burns through their ideas fast.
