SKINNY PUPPY / Weapon 
Scaling back on the guitars, the act push the abrasive synths and broken but driving drumbeats to the forefront again, making a wonderful minimal backdrop for Nivek Ogre's distorted angry "European" Muppet vocals to glue everything together. It might be a throwback to their early days but it still manages to keep a melodic danceable tone to it that makes it a little more accessible than their earlier outings. Even with it's multiple weak spots, this album is still welcome in my Skinny Puppy collection.
