1 stars The Dillinger Escape Plan is one of the new wave of new American bands that pioneer in the department of "noisecore" or extremely Heavy Hardcore mixed in with Grindcore influences. Their first album Calculating Infinity showed a lot of light with their experimental measures put at extremely high calibur at an extremely high "volume". To simply put it, their music is immensely heavy and noisy.

This release however, has showed the commercial components of this band. The Dillinger Escape Plan has made in this album with a leap into the likes of Everytime I Die, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God into the category of "Metalcore". This isn't a very good Metalcore album, even though The Dillinger Escape Plan has made a big choice to streamline their sound and attempt to capture a larger audience into their music. However the result is an awful mix between their older, heavier Grind-Death-Noisecore attack into just simply noisy. Some of the songs on this album are simply trash including the supposed good track of "Panasonic Youth".

Not recommended for fans of ANY genre.
