Above This Clouded Mind

We are very happy to announce the release of our debut album "Above This Clouded Mind" and you can buy it today. See details below.


You can buy the album and download it right now by visiting the "goods" section of our site.

We are offering 2 ways you can buy it.

For $10, you can download all of the songs and the artwork today.

For $13, you can download all of the songs and the artwork today AND we will send you a hard copy of the CD and the artwork in the mail.

We will have all of the CDs back from the duplication company in about 2 weeks, and we will send them out then, but if you buy it now, you can download it and have it now.

Whichever option you choose, once you have paid for the CD, you will be automatically taken to a page where you can download the album. This is our special pre-sale for you.

We worked for untold hours over the past few years and spent many thousands of dollars so that we could see this moment. We poured so much of ourselves and our creative energy into this project. We are so excited that it is finally done.

We are all very proud of this album. Having all of these songs recorded, mastered and produced in such a professional way brings an indescribable feeling of accomplishment. Thanks for sharing in our happiness.

We will have an official CD release show in about 2 weeks (more details coming soon). We have set up a way for all of you, our loyal friends, fans, and readers, to get the album before that show. It is ready for you to buy and download TODAY!!!

When you click on one of the options for buying the CD, you will go to a paypal page that is already filled out with our information. If you do not have a paypal account, don't worry.

It is INCREDIBLY easy to buy things through them. You just need a credit card, debit card, or checking account. If you have any trouble at all with the order or the download, just write to us at info@thelookmachine.com and we will help you out.

Thanks to the guys from Boy Sets Fire who worked so hard with us to produce and engineer this album. Without you guys, this album would not exist.

Finally, thanks to all of you who have waited patiently for this day and supported us every step of the way. You guys are awesome.

Hey guys,

Congrats on the album. I can't imagine how hard it must be to work for something like this. But from what I have seen and heard you guys love what you do. I am always impressed with what I hear from you guys. You are so unique. I must say that I feel lucky to have stumbled across this band and I hope (expect) to hear so many more good things from you. You guys seem to have a love for the music and so in my book deserve this moment. Relish in it because moments like this are not every day. I for one am very excited to hear the songs on this album. You guys rock! I know it is cliche to say that but I mean it ROCK! So keep on rocking and I hope to see you guys at a show in or around philly soon!

Do you really need to use that type of language?

Anyway, congrats once again. I'm stoked for you guys. I can't wait for everyone to hear how awesome Above This Clouded Mind is. Soon enough, I'll be telling stories, saying, "Oh The Look Machine? I knew those guys back when they played the occasional basement show in Jersey"

You have a lot to be proud of. Now start promoting like crazy!

A question, Josh:


What word is that supposed to be? Rectum?

I said, "You'll be sorry."
He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?"

Awesome, guys! I am psyched for you. Um, is there anyway your cd release show could be in four weeks instead of two? I mean, what is a difference of two small weeks, anyway? Not much, in the grand scheme of things...I would just so love to be there.

I'm really proud of you guys! The artwork looks awexome and I'm looking forward to hearing it! (i.e. the music. not the artwork, albeit it speaks for itself) When/where shall said opening concert be?

Hey guys.......the Album sounds great. Awesome job. Especially whoever re-engineered All Our Hands and Becoming. They sound so much better. Shane great job on the new stuff.....I can tell someone has been yelling at you to keep the fills down haha. It does sound really tight though.

Posted by: Xerxes [TypeKey Profile Page] on April 26, 2006 06:38 PM

This new album is clearly a furtherment of The Look Machine's previous neo-Nazi, satan-worship sing-a-long drivel.

Posted by: mynym on April 27, 2006 03:49 AM

I'd just like to say thanks to everybody who has bought the album so far.

We really appreciate it, and we hope you enjoy it!

Posted by: Poncho on April 27, 2006 11:19 AM

Posted by: sha'uri on April 28, 2006 08:16 AM

The Look Machine (TLM for those in the know) are a band from the DE/MD/PA area... (wait for it.... wait for it...)


Let them rock you.
