"Mischief Invasion" (Liquid 8; 2004)
Reviewed by Snidermann
We all make movies in our head, in our imagination, every minute of every day. We play out reality like it was a movie. And, of course, movies need music.
The music from the DVD movie Mischief Invasion, coordinated by Fear Factory drummer Raymond Herrera, is a perfect example of that kind of music. Just play the CD, and, as the music plays out, the movie of our lives reels out in our minds. It's a great thing. I have yet to see the movie, but the music is an outstanding and engrossing listening experience that sparks the imagination. Do yourself a favor and really sit down and listen to this CD - don't just play it in the background while you're doing the dishes.
One thing I like about soundtracks such as this one: sometimes lyrics get in the way of pure musical experience and that doesn't happen here. Instead, the listener gets the pure experience of music and imagination.
As a show of support, Fear Factory lends a Transformer Mix of their own "Archetype" here and that just makes it all the better.
This is hard, heavy, electronic and killer instrumental music that simply blew me away. A totally killer soundtrack.
A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
