Our Best Review Yet - 4 Stars
Few bands have ever given me such a hard time in the way of pinning down a genre as the Look Machine. And I suppose, that in itself, in this day and age, is a victory. In an era where seemingly anything can be tagged with 'core,' the Look Machine have offered a debut that's just as grounded in punk and hardcore as earthly folk.
There's so much going into this musical puzzle that I may as well be trying to put the pieces together with a blindfold on. One minute a rock band with epic vocal delivery, the next a folk band using nothing but the grassroots of voice and acoustic guitar, and the next a hardcore band buzzing with energy and dissonance, the Look Machine have truly covered all bases. They've reached to the farthest corners of rock music and taken something special from each. And rather than a muddled result with no true sense of itself, they've succeeded in being a jack of all trades.
Go ahead and read the whole review, it even has good grammar and spelling too, unlike some other. . .ahem. . .less talented writers out there. Thanks PunkNews.org, and thanks "Anchors," the reviewer, whoever you are.
