Update: After several months of listening to this album, I must admit that my personal favorite is now Tightrope. It is just so emotional and haunting, I find myself humming that piano line relentlessly. I also really like the bonus track Baptized in Fire. Much more so than I did originally. The rest of my review I think accurately reflects my feelings of Minus the Machine.

This review is for the deluxe edition. The bonus track Baptized in Fire is a pretty solid rocker. Worth having for serious 10 Years fans. Ok, keeping it brief and to the point. 10 Years Minus the Machine is a strong production from the band. It boasts a heavier razor sharp distortion on the harder tracks and there are quite a few. Definitely reminiscent of their earlier work- Also reminded me in some spots of Tool's best work but definitely 10 Years signature sound. Vocal work from Mr. Hasek is excellent... and 10 Years are showing some real technical maturity. This is a real return to form from after the (in my opinion) disappointing Feeding the Wolves.

Standout tracks are Minus the Machine, Battle Lust, Backlash, Dancing with the dead, Soma, Tightrope, And All the Other Colors (these tracks are some of 10 Years best work to date). Writing on the Walls is a unique and addictive almost ballad. The other tracks (Knives, Sleeper) are unique, and solid rockers. 10 Years, without the backing of a major label (hence the title), and fending for themselves have delivered an excellent record. Well done 10 Years.

P.S. There is a lot to take in here, so it may require a couple of listens to fully appreciate this offering. Thanks for reading.

10 Years is one of my favorite bands, and so I was stoked to see they had a new release. I'm not exactly sure what musical genre they truly fall into, but there are only a few bands out there with a similar musical sensibility (32 Leaves being most notable IMO). Anyway, the songs are quite powerful through and through. Some of the tracks carry that trademark lush heavy sound and others are more atmospheric, but all grip you and take you along with them as they journey through a rich, emotional landscape (or soundscape as it were). If you are a fan of the band, you will love this. They continue to grow and mature while still remaining consistent with who they are as a band. A definite logical progression from Feeding the Wolves.

Okay so it has only been like two, now almost three years since the release of Feeding The Wolves, I was worried that there wouldnt be anything new on this album. Worries aside I rushed out and pre ordered the album< and begun the wait. Finally it arived a day early and I must say its their best.

Minus The Machine 5/5
Easily one of my favourite of the songs, Jesse's voice is raw and powerful. The instrumental side of the song is strong, fast and well done.

Battle Lust 3/5
Not there best but still not bad, I dont know it has the feeling of their older stuff, but not in a good way. It does fit with the rest of the album however.

Forever Fields 5/5
Amazing piano entry, then straight into Jesse's voice that takes on a haunting feel that is just perfect, the song picks up becoming a "not quite a ballad".

Backlash 5/5
DAMN amazing song it should have been the title song to the album, one of thier faster songs that they have ever put out, but it has a flaw that is, its ALMOST to fast. The lyrics could be overlooked quickly becausae of the actual instrmental blast.

Wriring On The Walls 4.5/5
Another good song, the slowest of the sons as I recall, I believe that it only picks up until later in the song and even then its still slow.

Dancing With The Dead 5/5
The best hands down, I think of Wonderland with this song, it has a I cant say rap, but it has fast verses meets slower rock sounds. Hmm hard to say with this one.

Sleeper 3.2/5
The middle of the album feel has this one by the balls. It doesnt stand out and has way to much effect thrown in. Its muddy until the chorus sets in.

Wow!! This cd is Amazing!!! I am a huge 10 Years fan and I have been waiting for this album since I heard they were working on new music! And it definitely did not disapoint, it has to be my favorite album out of all of them! I've loved all of their stuff but there is just something different about this one! MTM has such a differnt sound that KATHY, AE, Divisions, and Feeding the Wolves don't have and it's Awesome!

Some of my favorite tracks are Forever Fields (its a really haunting/wonderful song), Minus the Machine (probably should have been their single, not backlash), Battle Lust (really great song, my only complaint is that it is too short), ...And All the Other Colors (a great finish to the album and a really Awesome song) and Writing on the Walls (another amazing song with a lot of emotion.) I like all of the songs Backlash is good but not as good as some of the other songs on this album. There is not one song on here that I don't like or skip.

If you are a fan of 10 Years DEFINITELY check Minus the Machine!! It's closer to KATHY and A.E. but different, fresh and raw at the smae time. Really great album! 5/5 Stars!
