I'll be the first to admit that I'm pretty close-minded about music. I found what kind of music I like a long time ago and that's what works for me, I don't really care to check out different genres and whatnot. But I just kept hearing so many good things about Head Automatica that I had to check them out. Well, that'll teach me once and for all not to rule something out without listening to it first. I'm absolutely addicted to this album. It'll take medication or intense therapy to get these songs out of my head. I am in awe of Daryl Palumbo, he is an unbelievable human being. Decadence just goes to show that he is not only talented, he is versatile and very clever. He's not just a musician, he's a music artist. As has already been said, this is definitely not Glassjaw all over again. I happen to like both bands, but if you're a fan of one, it doesn't necessarily mean you're a fan of the other. This is a CD to turn up as loud as you can possibly stand it. It's a rock album you'll want to dance to like you're having a psychotic episode. Very creative, innovative, unique, interesting, FUN. Dance rock. There's a couple tracks I don't have much to say about, but the tracks I can't get enough of far outnumber them. "Beating Heart Baby" has been stuck in my head ever since the first time I heard it. There is something you should take note of before you buy this though: it sounds to me like an album you'll either love or hate. It pushes you to an extreme with really no in between. If you love the clips you hear and just want more, go get it. Like right now. If you're unsure about the clips and think maybe you'll just try it anyway... don't. You'll just get mad and come write an angry review here.

Everyone is commenting on what Dan "The Automator," and Daryl Palumbo have done in previous outfits, be it Gorillaz or Glassjaw. The bottom line is this is not Gorillaz or Glassjaw (Please note that Glassjaw is not pop-punk though, I cannot stress that enough, its not that easy to classify music). Anyway this cd is great for what it tries to do, which is make a pop album, there are no attempts to make something that these two have done before. I've been downloading pre-releases of these songs for about 6 months now, and I still love everyone of them (Contrary to what was said earlier, this CD was not released as Tokyo Decadence, someone just called it that because it was thought to be the title). The beats are amazing and its just a fun record to listen to. If you like Glassjaw that does not mean you are going to like this, if you like Deltron it does not mean you are going to like this, Not every band is only for fans of similar bands. If you are not sure about this CD then go see HA live, it was one of the best shows I have ever been to in my life, so much energy and so much fun. Stand out tracks: The Razor, I Shot William H. Macy.

Daryl Palumbo took a break from his duties as vocalist for the hardcore band Glassjaw in order to create music with a rockin' party vibe, and the result is Head Automatica. Dan the Automator continues to challenge himself by handling the production and programming on this disc, even though the music is much more rock than hip-hop. Decadence incorporates a variety of styles ranging from the `60s garage rock rave up of "At The Speed Of A Yellow Bullet" to the early `90s Brit-pop shuffle beat of "Brooklyn Is Burning." While not quite deserving of the next-big-thing status that some are bestowing upon them, Head Automatica is a fun band with a trashy edge nevertheless.

This is a fun album with dance grooves to go crazy to and insightful lyrics to keep you searching for the truth.
By the artists involved with 'Decadence' you can tell what a magical and easy to digest album this is. Many fun guitar parts, funky bass lines and beautiful beats keep the listener interested without boring you to death with it's pop sense abilties. This is acutally how pop electronic-rock music should sound. Fans of Glassjaw and The Automater should not hesistate to pick this gem up...this is a wonderful album to add to any cd collection.

You can imagine my first reaction when I heard Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw would be fronting an experimental/electronica/dance outfit called Head Automatica. I think it went something like this : "What the hell?" In all reality I should not love this album the way I do, since this music isn't my first of preferred taste (although I am a huge Glassjaw fan, and have a very broad range of musical listening). But for some reason, every time I pop in "Decadence", I just simply cannot stop listening to it. Maybe it's the infectious beats, or the great production, or once again an outstanding vocal performance from Daryl, but whatever it is, there's something special about Head Automatica. While I'm not so much familiar with the Automator's previous works (I will be looking into them now though) I can say that this album is just as addicting as it gets. If you're a fan of Daryl's previous projects, most notably Glassjaw, prepare for a surprise, because this is unlike anything he's ever linked himself to. And that's one of the biggest drawing points of the record.

Honestly despite my hesitation to purchase "Decadence", I really only picked it up because I was a fan of Glassjaw. They were and still are my favorite band, and so I figured I'd give this album a shot. A year and a half ago when I popped this into my cd player I braced myself for whatever could possibly come running through my speakers. Needless to say that as soon as the first seconds of "At The Speed Of A Yellow Bullet" hit I knew that I had made the right decision. And I've never thought twice since. Everything about "Decadence" is pure gold. The music is terribly, terribly catchy and I guarantee you'll have parts or phrases of songs stuck in your head for days.
