Review of "In Silico - Pendulum"
Unfortunately, In Silico marks Pendulum's downfall whilst bringing disappointment to the world of Drum and Bass. I say this because after Pendulum's masterful debut album "Hold Your Colour", it seems that the Australian band have effectively become both corporate & mainstream and are willing to sell their integrity. It is evident in this album that Pendulum have tried and failed to create a soundtrack that incorporates parts of rock music and DnB, in order to appeal to a wider audience. The sad truth is that instead they have embarassed themselves by producing an album that is nothing more than mediocre.
Perhaps Pendulum would have benefited from keeping to their flawless catchy rhythms and melodies that people could not help but dance to in their previous album.
That said, sure, In Silico isn't terrible, and it won't give you ear cancer. There are some decent melodies & tracks that are reminiscent of the band we all know and love. In addition, there are some parts of this album that remind me of MUSE's "Black Holes and Revelations". But this album is not going to go down in history like its predecessor.
Sadly, I think that the fact that we expected so much from this band means one can not help but feel disappointed.
