IMHO, despite several years of work with few interesting releases in early 90's, this band followed the tracks of Skinny Puppy and Front 242 but never reaches the same level of his fathers in an effort of trying to merge both. I always felt/thought that even if FLA is a popular Electro-Indus/EBM, I used to listen to them for few years and really enjoyed it. It often gives me the impression that something was missing, what someone calls great inspiration, soul, daring, risk or sincere artistic act; Maybe it's too under control, too hardly post-produced, too "square shaped" to me. And today I'm more convinced of it, as the band seems completely lost in dubstep sound FX or eternal variations of previous stuff. It's pretty sad.
