Just to let you know, the album was actually leaked online. I have listened to it and it's truly awful. If you are expecting Hold Your Colour 2 look elsewhere.
Pendulum haven't been good since Hold your colours.
In silico was nothing special tbh.
pendulum is **** now. seriously get with the times, pendulum is like dnb for 5 year olds
It's a shame Pendulum can't keep a HYC'esque sound, but instead they have tried to become mainstream and failed slightly at it. It's not bad, but seeing as HYC was one of the best albums of the decade it is hard to live up to. Watercolour is worse than the stuff on In Silico, i do have faint hopes that there may be a few good songs in there somewhere but when i see Ransom not making it onto the album i can't really see it. Ransom lived up to some of the stuff on HYC for me and they decided to put crap like Watercolour on the album instead, awful!
Anyone who is saying that Pendulum are **** now obviously doesn't like the transition they have made from DnB to incorporating more rock elements, yes Hold Your Colour was a fantastic album but even then it wasn't true DnB. It should be noted that they started off as a rock band and then decided to experiment with DnB so to go back to their roots is only natural, I personally like the rockier twist they put to DnB as I don't like the purist DnB stuff anyway, if you happen to do so go listen to purer DnB and stop expecting something from a band that never intended to be pure.
The Immersion album to me is really good, combining some of the best of HYC with mainstream rockier elements of IS to create a good hybrid album, just because they don't fall in to one set category does not make them ****.
