Guest review by

An insane mix of metal, hardcore punk, jazz and everything else that is shoved together to form this avant-garde masterpiece. Although Miss Machine may be less brutal than its predecessor, calculating infinity, it still remains pretty damn heavy. They have evolved their sound now using more melodies and even a few catchy choruses! Opener 'Panasonic youth' is the frantic and aggressive type of song that fans of previous releases would expect but the it alternates from this, to slow and melodic throughout the album. Because of the hundreds of bands imitating them, fans would surely have been disappointed if they had simply tried to repeat the intensity of 'calculating infinity' but by altering their style, making the album even more varied and confusing than before, it remains fresh-sounding and they continue to stand out from the crowd.

Rating: 8 Another pretty good album by DEP, although not quite as intense as the band's debut. There is still quite a lot of experimentation going on, thanks purely to the jazz and punk influences found within.

Keep it and give it a another chance every now and then.
