1 stars PURE REASON REVOLUTION switches genre from nu-prog to electro-rock. Not unexpected, and if you can appreciate the latter genre, it may not even be unwelcome - in their proggy direction, PURE REASON REVOLUTION lacked what their name promises, something revolutionary. Unfortunately, in this new direction, they still haven't found their creativity. PRR manages to deliver bad electro-rock. The roaring bassline in the opening song Les Malheurs promises something to at least deliver direction and some old-fashioned rockin', before devolving into drawn-out vocal whining with pianos in the background going nowhere. The second song promises more of the same... and so does the rest of the album. Sometimes they manage to get a nice bass line or a nice rhythm going, but it never lasts, and they always revert to boredly singing over pointless background noise, whether that be loud ramming basses or noodling pianos. Occasionally you hear they had an idea that may have gone somewhere, but it always goes nowhere. Perhaps they're trying to preserve their complexity by jumping around from idea to other idea... but none of them are interesting enough to warrant a second listen. Switching genres is forgiven, but producing a bad album in another genre is just a foolish move.
