Product Description

If you thought Static-X might mellow out after its hair-raising debut album Wisconsin Death Trip went platinum and incessant touring brought together hardcore fans everywhere, then you don't know Wayne Static. The band's second album, Machine, is even hearvier and darker. Alternative Press has named the album one of the most anticipated of 2001. For Static-X, the trip continues with a new Machine.

Amazon.com

Static-X and their 1999 debut, Wisconsin Death Trip, seemed to garner more interest for singer Wayne Static's gravity-defying hairstyle than for the L.A.-based lineup's genre-defying music. The aptly titled sophomore outing, Machine, is the worthy, if expected, follow-up. The intense, mechanized, futuristic metal found here comes across as a thrash version of Orgy, with a dollop of Ministry and a dash of Powerman 500 tossed in for extra punch. The intense, short bursts that are "Get to the Gone" and "This Is Not" are forceful and demanding, thanks to Static's growl-scream and the rhythmic power of the music. The spooky "Cold" and epic album closer, "A Dios Alma Perdida," would be suitable for a horror-movie soundtrack, while "Otsego Undead" kicks off with a welcome organic drum sound, though the song never really goes anywhere--a problem that resurfaces throughout Machine. Indeed, the album's revved-up vibe, monster riffs, and irresistible energy are all ultimately held down by a dearth of memorable songs. --Katherine Turman

This is Static-X's second full-length CD. It was released in 2001.

Now, I have all of Static-X's CDs (not counting Beneath, Between, Beyond) and I must say they're all good. For the most part, I don't see what most people have against "Machine", Static-X's sophomore effort. I think "Machine" is better than "Wisconsin Death Trip" and "Shadow Zone." Not by much, but it is. The album starts out with Bien Venidos, an intro that sounds a little Mexican for some reason and has nothing to do with the rest of the CD.

"Machine" has a little bit of everything for all metal lovers. There's the hard, loud screaming,(Get to the Gone) the instrumental (A Dios Alma Perdida) and the sweet techno metal (This is Not, ...In a Bag).

Wayne Static's vocals are probably the loudest in his career on this CD. The song Get to the Gone is practically screaming and yelling and This is Not is loud. Also, Koichi Fukuda (guitars, keyboards, programming) is replaced with Tripp Rex Elsen, their new guitarist. Tripp stays around until Static's third offering, "Shadow Zone", but he was then accused of child molestation, so he won't be in "Start A War."

Wayne Static still has his signature HUGE spiked hair and the band still has their talent. One by one, I'll go through the tracks and tell you what I think of them. My rating system goes from a 1 to a 10.

1= horrible song, it needs to be burned

10= Awesome!

1. Bien Venidos- All "Venidos" is is 23 seconds of cheering and cheerful elevator-type music. It deserves no rating, because it's 23 seconds long. So, anyway, just when you think "Bien Venidos" is starting, it gets interrupted by screaming and then...

First I must say, I was very disappointed when I heard Koichi left the band. I think Tripp will be a decent replacement, but still not quite as good as the latter. I also need to stress that Tripp did none of the recordings for Machine, Static did the lead guitar (if you don't believe me, go to mtv.com, go to Static-X's page and there is an interview about the release).
Now, let me say this has alot of emphasis on base and techno, the guitars are still strong, but not as up front as on Wisconsin Death Trip. I like the change of pace alot, as it shows that this isn't just a carbon copy as some bands have done.
On to the songs. As far as the best tracks on the album (in my opinion) they are: Machine, This is Not, Permanence, Get to the Gone, Structural Defect, Otsego Undead (which sounds alot better than on the Dracula 2000 soundtrack), Black and White, Burn to Burn, ... in a Bag, and Cold (I'm not much one for slow songs).
Now, all in all, this is an excellent follow-up. A slight change of pace, a little bit more techno, a little less guitar-heavy. Honestly, it hasn't left my CD Player since I got it the weekend after release. Its just the stuff to get me up for work.

Having not purchased the "Wisconsin Death Trip" CD, Static-X's first release, I cannot judge their new CD, "Machine" by those standards. However, I believe this CD is still great.
Others have questioned the placement of the first track, "Bien Vendos", but I find it amusing. It is composed of happy music, clapping, and the sounds of laughing individuals, obviously having a great time. Then, without warning, it cuts to the loud scream of the start of "Get to the Gone," the second best track on the album. The transition is just funny.
"Permanence" and "Black and White" seem to register the same with me, as both have their own unique sounds, but neither really hits it with me as "This is Not" and "Get to the Gone."
As far as "This is Not" is concerned, it is simply the best song on the album. If you did not download the song from Static-X.com, I suggest you do so. If you hate the song, this album is definately not for you.
Anyway, the remainder of the tracks have their own unique sound and are fantastic. "Cold" and "Olsego Undead", despite their lack of heavy lyrics, are pretty great songs. If you are a fan of slower music, these songs are great to listen to. Sort of an intermission, so to speak. But then, with "Burn to Burn", "Structural Defect", and "Machine" following, the heavy riffs continue. I think "Burn to Burn" and "Machine" rank in the top songs on this album, only falling short to "This is Not" and "Get to the Gone."
Finally, the outro, "A Dios Alma Perdida", serves as another intermission of sorts. It is an interesting song to listen to after having listened to the entire CD's heavy riffs. Great CD.

With Static-X's debut album "Wisconsin Death Trip" being such a success, a second album was eagarly anticipated. "Machine" is no doubt a quality release, however in no way lives up to the genius of "Wisconsin Death Trip". Tripp, although displaying many inovative talents on guitar, in my opinion doesn't successfully fill the void that Koichi left (I still can't figure out why he left...). Many songs on the album also leave the listener "hanging", never really developing or excelling into it's full potential, kinda like a joke with no punch-line. Ken's drums hit harder for more bass (plus), however Tripp is not as heavy as Koichi was, and Wayne's vocals don't display as much variety and range as they did in "Wisconsin Death Trip". However "Machine" is still a great, dynamic album, but in no way challenges the greatness of "Wisconsin Death Trip".
