I just like the song.
Ragman
In place of the glitchy programming from the last few albums are more minimal wave beats and synth sequences, which are very pleasing to the ear.
Herbert West
It's arguably their best album since Last Rights, and one that'll stay on your playlist with a vengance.

With a career in industrial/electronic as vast and varied as Skinny Puppy's, you never know which direction they will take with a new record. While I am no purist for any one SP style, if you asked me my personal favorite, I'd probably say their catchy synthpop era stuff between Remission & Bites (1984/1985). While not as deep or complex as later albums like Mind and Vivisect, the catchy beats and analog synth sequences of tracks like Far Too Frail and Smothered Hope had me hooked instantly and Remission remains my favorite album from them for its early synthpop sounds.

For their latest album Weapon, Skinny Puppy have indeed gone back to their synthpop roots, albeit with the production quality of their newer albums like Mythmaker or Handover. They even went back and re-recorded Solvent from Remission, with fantastic results.

All the tracks on Weapon also feature Ogre's original vocal style and effects, along with their original analog gear (I definitely hear Moogs all over this beast) adding to the retro vibe of the disc. In place of the glitchy programming from the last few albums are more minimal wave beats and synth sequences, which are very pleasing to the ear. Its certainly not a new concept for a legendary group to go back to their root sound (OMD & Depeche Mode recently did the same), but no one has pulled it off the way Skinny Puppy have on Weapon. This is no mere retread of their first few records, but rather taking that vintage sound and expanding on it in ways they could not back in 1984.

My favorite cuts on the new album are Solvent (great melodic overhaul making the track MUCH darker), Wornin', Illisit (great old school electro robotic chants), and Paragun, but the whole record start to finish is a must have.

Great album. Combines the best of the new Puppy sound and merges it with the old. The remake of solvent is great, and certain tracks like Tsudanama will stand out in the Puppy catalog for years to come. Ogre's voice and lyrics have definitely improved since their last album and they have kind of reigned in Mark Walk's influence to a better extent. cEvin seems to also have returned to simpler drum programming with more TR-808/909 going on and it sounds great. Some would claim this is the album many people have been waiting for, although all SP albums have a certain polarity to them even amongst big fans.

Or should I say WeaponEyes'd? As other reviewers have noted, this album is a bit of a throwback to the original, gothic Puppy, with a modern twist. It nicely continues in and expands upon the direction of 2011's hanDover.

On first listens, 'Wornin'', 'Illisit', 'Salvo', 'Paragun', 'Survivalisto', & 'Plasticage' stand out. I'd go so far as to say 'Illisit' and 'Paragun' are just about the grooviest songs they've ever done - absolutely amazing. I'm very Very VERY impressed with these 2 tracks. Another song of note includes 'Glowbel', with its Downloadian keyboards. The reworking of 'Solvent' is also quite good. 'Tsudanama' is a harsher trippy number - sounds like something from the Last Rights period, had the Last Rights period occurred two decades later.

I'm not sure where this fits in relative to their other epic albums, but as of right now, this feels just about as good as anything they've ever done; it's at least their best since Dwayne. Enough commentary for now; time to Krank Up & enjoy the new Puppy...

Dig It.

When Puppy more or less fell apart in the early/mid-90s, following Ogre's departure, Dwayne's death, and the posthumous release of The Process, their constantly evolving sound was cut short at a transitional stage. Any lingering traces of that lost sound were seemingly exorcised when Cevin and Ogre collaborated on the song "Frozen Sky" back in 2001 for The Ghost of Each Room album. There was so much promise in that one song that fans dared hope that Puppy might live again in some form (Cevin joining OhGr's live band the same year just made it seem all the more possible). Our hopes were not in vain, but then the Puppy that formed in the wake of "Frozen Sky" was a very different animal and its subsequent output has had a rather polarizing effect on the fan base.

Of course, in retrospect, it was probably naïve to think the group's first effort in over a decade would sound anything like Too Dark Park or Last Rights. Even The Process received mixed reviews from long time fans upon release (given all that it was born of: drug addiction, internal friction, studio pressure and a revolving door of producers, it was hardly a surprise -- and even then, I'd argue it still turned out okay). But then "Optimissed" left those same fans scratching their heads, and The Greater Wrong of the Right, while harder to dismiss outright, seemed to suggest the band was suffering from some form of musical identity crisis. "Ghostman" and "Goneja" were outstanding songs and a logical extension of the direction they took with The Process (which, from a creative standpoint, just made sense), but the remainder of the album was disappointingly straightforward given Puppy had spent the majority of its career redefining the limits, song structures, and time signatures of music - both in theory and in practice.
