all the great ones evolve,progress,expand horizons, dep did the same thing and it worked out very well. a singer with vocal options certainly helps and they're just getting better at writing music in general
GREAT f*ckING ALBUM.. DEP are back, stronger than ever. (Keep heavy music alive) peace
john lambgoat needs to write more reviews
All the reviews on this site are too f*cking long. Everyone beats around the bush for a whole f*cking page. THIS RECORD IS GREAT! At first I did not like, but it definately grew on me in the best way possible.With all the Dillinger rip off bands its good DEP didn't try and make Calculating 2. This records is going to make everyone's dillinger rip off bands think twice about thier existance and next CD. f*ck DILLINGER RIP OFF BANDS!!! DEP f*cking kicked everyone in the dick with this. THE ARTWORK
SHIT BAND TO THE MAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
GREEEEEEGGGGGGA PUCIOTOOOOOOO!!!!! RED RANNNNNNGGGGGGAAAAAAA HENSHIN!!
If old Johnny L. liked this so much, why not a 9? And don't even tell me you took a point of for artwork. All I have to say about the artwork is if you are walking by, and see that cover you are going to know who that is. I'm sick and tired of blood splatters, and ominous abstract photos. Did anyone read the lyrics? They are just like the artwork. A bunch of different lines, merge together to form one hell of a album!! If any album reviewed on here deserves a 9 or even 10 its this one! F
Van Damsel is such a terrible song. Good choice on favorite track, though.
I still haev respect for those guys because they are capable of releasing an album such as Calculating infinty. BUT...Irony is a Dead Scene made me want to vomit...there new stuff will probably be lame too. we'll see
this album is one of the best in recent years, all who dislike this album can eat a dick...
John's review and score fit perfectly. The album is excellent, but not necessarily ground-breaking or near-perfect. In most cases at least one of the two apply to a nine or ten.
Good review, basically on the money. This album smokes, but the songs "Highway Robbery" and "Setting Fire to Sleeping Giants" are basically big incoherent messes, so I'd dock some points. Also, it's not nearly as groundbreaking as the band and the label keep saying it is... but it IS a damn cool record, and it opens their sound up just enough that they have plenty of room to progress.
The Nine Inch Nails song that Dillinger covers is called "Wish" from the ep entitled "broken." There is no NIN song called "broken" - do your homework.
Do your homework? Yes, clearly this reviewer has rushed another review. I've a succinct piece of advice for you Dyami -- work on writing better songs, and worry less about one word in 700 word review.
haha, he didnt say they covered "broken", he said it right the first time... Nine Inch Nails ("Wish")
holy shit! the brotha from LIAV just got pwned!
this album is great, no one had, have or will have the corage to make an album like this. it´s simple the best.
I must admit that i didn't think anything could be better than the Calculating and i still don't, but i do believe that DEP are onto something, their progressive sound will be the bench mark for others to follow. DEP are the future NOW!!
This CD is way f*cking better than "Calculating Infirmiry"or whatever its called. Greg Puciato(did i spell it right) can actually sing and it is more electronic than their last CD.Though Greg is no Howard Jones(of killswitch, not the other howard jones)
i give it 4.5/5 stars because it's very listenable. the heaviness isn't ridiculous scenexcheesexgrindxcrapxcorex-look-at-my-blast-beats! very much changed from CI but in a good way. CI was much too intense although it was as good as it could possibly be. this is just a really well written album -very simple. i cant wait for the new one. wow. buy this or else
good review the truth told killswitch sux never caopare dep with kse again
Calculating Infinity and the Running Board e.p. were the only good things this band has put out. Dimitri was also a much better front man, simply because he wasn't a total dickhead, like Greg.
Simply a great album, to me one of 2004's best... DEP is yet more "listenable", adding some FAITH NO MORE influences to their sound (especially with the voice).
One of the best albums of this new century. 9/10
