Industrial is NOT another term for nu-metal, and it does NOT have to sound like NIN. Econoline Crush is a very good example of being industrial without sounding overly angry or Reznor like.
The band Econoline Crush are sadly no more now, but this record lives as testament that listenable and publically acceptable industrial rock, although rare, does indeed exist. It escapes me as to why this band wasn't more popular out of its native Canada.
PS: To get the full benefit of this cd, you will have to have a really good stereo, and listen to it a few times over. The songs are very deeply layered, and it will surprise you just how much new stuff you will hear each time you listen to the same track.
TDYK was the band's second full length release (the first one being Affliction), and you can definitely hear the difference in the sound. For instance, there are 5 members in Econoline Crush in TDYK as opposed to 4 in Affliction. Many of the original members are were longer in the band. TDYK moves away from their hints of industrial music, and more towards radio-friendly rock music. Also, Econoline Crush seemed to get a lot more recognition in Canada than ever before. So much, that they would get mobbed by teenaged girls if they didn't slip away to the backstage after the shows.
TDYK is still a great album because it has variety and passion.
Home, Surefire, Sparkle & Shine, and Burnt are classic fast paced rock songs best to be experienced in concert.
Deeper (a slow paced, lonely, love song) and Razorblades & Bandaides (an almost George Michael-type ballad) are some of the lesser-known gems on the album. It demonstrates the band's talent when they're not thrashing distorted guitars and sampling drum loops.
All That You Are is the most radio-friendly song on the album, that even pop music radio stations would play it! It's a good song, but after a while it becomes a bit too sappy and repetitive.
All in all, I give this album a 4 out of 5 because there's enough variety between the songs, but the album is still lacking that edge that they had before. It's still a lot better than most albums out there! The Japanese poem on track 99 is kinda cute too!

1998 was, initially, another boring year in the music industry. But amongst the snooze-a-rama of Usher, Celine Dion & Shania, burst forth this unknown band from Canada. Read morePublished on August 14, 2012 by Death Dealer

I had forgotten about this band. I had really liked the couple of songs from this album that were on the radio, but they didn't seem to get much momentum and just disappeared. Read morePublished on June 12, 2005 by Sean Quinn

Just because they have an industrial tone doesn't mean they sound like NIN. They sound like nobody but Econoline Crush. Everyone has some originality to their music. Read morePublished on June 21, 2001
