Objectively I think this is Fear Factory's lightest and most commercial release to date, but it's still my favorite. Slave Labor, Corporate Cloning, Archetype, and Drones are all some of my favorite FF songs.

Hmm... I think Digimortal is probably a little more commercial, but that is also a great album, as is this one.
