Rushed is also a word that comes to mind when listening to this thing. The song "Product" may be intended as tongue in cheek, I'm not entirely sure it is given the overall feel of "Minus All". I'd say it's the new musical vein Imperative Reaction are exploring. Mundane layers of sound desperately attempt to distract the listener but I'm persistent enough to sift through them one at a time. The end result, or to use a more appropriate term is this: Empty.
This is a spent band, their weariness is palpable even if you don't dissect a song like "Functional" which I now will: driving synthetic melody lines, straight up beats, unprocessed almost whiny vocals. Jesus, just stop guys. The field of hyper-melodic electronic edgy pop music is a very cut up confection with bands like Cesium_137 leading the pack handily. System Syn's last album also easily outshines this plodding slab of torpor.
