To throw my two cents in, I think 'Elite' works well as an opening, more on lyrical grounds than anything else. It's very self-refferential to Machinae's previous works, commenting that 'this is Redeemer' if the listener 'was not a believer' for what came before (i.e. DXM).

'Elite' is a much heavier song than what Machinae have done in the past, that caught me off guard. But I think that's what they wanted. It subverts your expectations. The album isn't as SiD orientated as some of their past stuff, but I don't think that's a bad thing, it shows the band progressing. Hypothetically, if 'Redeemer' had been rubbish, I would rather it be 'Rubbish' by experimenting than be good by simply repeating past-glories (*cough* AC/DC *cough*)

I've only just got the album, as the address it was sent to I don't live at most of the year. I was hoping it'd arrive during Easter break when I'm home from uni, but this wasn't the case. So I waited an additional month before I could here it (my bro brought it up for my b-day)! I have to say I'm thoroughly pleased with it though :) The only tune I really don't like on it is 'Hate', but out of 13 tracks (not including the instrumentals) that ain't bad at all. I generally find I like maybe 60-70% of most albums (although I have liked ALL of Machinae's downloadable tunes which essentially constitute an on-line album as it were), so 'Redeemer' really has impressed me.

I wanna write a review for it, but I can't at the minute cuz I'm writing my masters thesis on MaSu and it might intefer with my methodology  :-\ Thesis' suck...

I'm writing my masters thesis on MaSu

do tell...

Basically I'm doing a masters degree in 'Audience And Reception Studies'. Which is basically looking at how texts (be that film, music, whatever) are received and used by audiences. This can include things like marketing, but also social groups like fans etc. What I'm doing with MaSu is looking at online reception, how they've built up there reptutation essentially without backing from the bigwigs, and the area I'm really interested in is how the band have succeeded in making an original style of music successfully that doesn't fit existing genre tags. As we all know, the consensus with music often is "if it doesn't fit a tag, we can't do anything with it". Machinae proved such notions wrong, and that's what I'm really interested in.

On a less academic note, it just gives me an excuse to listen and indulge myself in all things MaSu non-stop for three months and get paid to do it ;)

Meteors. It's good to know that there's still something we can look forward to.
