Pendulum is the band who really got me into d'n'b years ago. Some people are hating just because this record really hit the mainstream and some of the songs played everywhere. Not all the song are great about half of them really make me tick. The Tempest, Granite and 9000 miles being probably the best ones.

Disappointment with a capital D. After 'Hold Your Colour' prospects for even more greatness were shattered. 2nd album syndrome really is a proven theory here. Whilst I do respect this band/act, this is a dire change in direction with not one notable song on this album. I can't even listen to Propane Nightmares because it was so over played on the radio. Sad and worse still the third album is another turkey.

In Silico represents a pivotal turn in Pendulum's musical direction, one which has drawn lots of negativity. While I'll admit I'll miss the original sounding material, this album is still good.

The change to a synth-rock style showcases the vocals of Rob Swire (listen to those f-bombs being laid down on Tracks 1 & 10 :D) and different genre styles (the brass on "Propane Nightmares"). "The Other Side" also showcases some different styles (is it me or does every Pendulum music vid involve running/chasing/or shaky camera action?). "9,000 Miles" is a interesting chillout style track with a synth-riff you'll hum throughout the entire track. "The Tempest" ends in a dramatic soundoff with guitars and synths.

So overall, the album I believe is the weakest of the 3 they've released so far (Hold Your Colour, & Immersion), but "Propane Nightmares" is the definite highlight, with "Showdown", "9,000 Miles", & "Granite" right behind.

P.S. This Japanese version doesnt offer too much extra. You might be able to get the singles and the normal album cheaper then this release.

This album has caused much controversy in the Drum & Bass community since the single "Granite" was showcased in early 2008. This album represents Pendulum's "new" sound which is very different to their previous sound. Here, Pendulum have headed in completely new direction which is less Drum & Bass orientated and forms more of a rock/electro hybrid.

Expectations of this album were initially so high because everyone was expecting an advance from their debut LP which was totally massive in the Drum & Bass world. But instead, we were given something very different which many were not expecting.

Get it if you're a diehard Pendulum fan, but don't expect the same sort of material that was on the 'Hold Your Colour' LP. If you're looking for a Drum & Bass album, move straight on from this as it probably isn't worth your time.

Not an in depth review... This albums seems to be quite underrated. Looking at the stats of the master release, I see people who don't even own it putting multiples 1/5 rates. Frustrated jilted fans. I'm not taking any side on the Pendulum case, but I find it a bit silly and shameful considering I thought Discogs was a good source for rating averages with a reasonable amount of votes.

I haven't paid much for this album, and for this reason I can enjoy it quite enough. An introduction track like Showdown represents for me a direct nose injection of Cayenne pepper while the last part of Midnight Runner reminds me of the feeling of a rainbow collapsing right on me. Having said that, I very rarely to never listen to this album straight in a row, often listening to tracks that hook me the most.
