Customer Reviews

I'm suspect to say because I'm huge fan of the band.
Marcel Rocha
10 Years is one of my favorite bands, and so I was stoked to see they had a new release.
Peter Faden
A very solid song, and probably one of my favorites.

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.

Just another good album from these guys, no major hits, but that is ok. Every song is good enough to not skip over

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.

Still in the adjustment phase when it comes to the album as I don't listen to it as much as I should due to work and a semi-hectic lifestyle, but of the several run-throughs I've had all I can say is it's good old 10 Years back at it again. Killer riffs, awesome vocals and nod-worthy music overall.

In my humble opinion, none of 10 Years' albums will ever match the first big production, Autumn Effect. The way Jesse Hasek's haunting voice flowed through that album was mesmerizing. However, their latest contribution to the world, Minus The Machine, is yet another very brilliant album. Dancing With The Dead and Soma are sleeping hits that will probably never be released to the masses. If you decide to purchase it, might I recommend the deluxe version for the 3 bonus tracks, 2 of which are acoustic. 10 Years brings acoustic music like no other hard rock band in the world.

Minus The Machine is a great effort from 10 Years. I've listened to the CD about 4 to 5 times now, and it seems to get better every time. (As opposed to only being able to listen to Feeding The Wolves a couple times before it got old.) There were a couple of songs I didn't like at first, but now I feel that every single track is good. If you've been listening to 10 Years for a while or have just heard of them, you shouldn't be disappointed with this purchase.

Another great release from 10 Years. While not long in terms of time clocking in at around 43 minutes, but a very solid release. I still would have like to have seen this cd a little longer in length, but that as it may, nothing here not worth disliking if you're a 10 Years fan. I really can't say I'm seeing anything new here in terms of musical style or casting off their record label, but still a very enjoyable listen and although in similar vein to their previous albums there's enough here to make you happy with their fifth release.
