The Autumn Effect

Okay, so Best Buy's ad was a tad bit misleading and the free tickets version of Underworld won't be available until Tuesday (so why does the rest of the page have the "AVAILABLE TUESDAY*" notice but this doesn't?), but I did pick up the 10 Years album. That was the best $10 I've spent in a while... I'd even go so far as to say a better deal than two dinners at Panda Express, and that's saying a lot from me. Take a good-sized serving of Chevelle and add in some of Maynard's madness (Tool/A Perfect Circle) and a touch of Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), and you have 10 Years. In fact, track 12 (Paralyzing Kings) starts out sounding a lot like the title track from Tool's album Lateralus and the epic nine-and-a-half minute title track The Autumn Effect wraps the album up nicely with electronic noise rhythms obviously influenced by Nine Inch Nails tracks like A Warm Place off of the classic multi-platinum The Downward Spiral album. I can heartily recommend this album to anyone with similar musical tastes as mine and look forward to hearing more from this band.
