Editorial Reviews

10 Years worked together as a band for the first time since writing their gold selling album, The Autumn Effect, on 2012's Minus The Machine. With that in mind, they created their most powerful songs to date relying on personal experiences all through the writing & recording process. The Knoxville, TN proud natives return with their 5th studio album expanding on their dark rock radio sound that wielded them 4 singles with gold airplay. Minus The Machine will cement the band as a staple in rock music.

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.

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.

First off, it's been almost a year since this came out, and in all that time, it has never beenfar from my player. This was the band's first album after leaving their label to create their own, and while I enjoyed Feedin the Wolves, as a long-time fan (almost 10 years :)) ), I coud tell their full heart wasn't in it. I am so glad my fear of them breaking up over it wasn't realized! These guys are truly special: hard -working, committed, and so bloody talented! Technically proficient and enormously gifted, they have a musical legacy that should not be overlooked. Minus the Machine is exceptional, their best IMO. The first time I heard Sowing Season, I had goosebumps all over, and repeated it about 10 times(not an exaggeration!). The Writing on the Walls is a signature piece, and Backlash is just kick-@$$ !!

If you are contemplating buying this as a first-time foray into the world of 10 years, you are getting an awesome album; if you've loved their other works, you will probably love that this is a combination of the best of their established style and some great exploration into new worlds of creativity. Either way, give it a chance, these guys are exceptional!

In my opinion i can't really speak or express how good this album. I thought their last album was good but when i heard this one i was just amazed. I have been listening to 10 Years since "The Autumn Effect" and every album since then has been better then the last. But when i heard this they surly out done them selves. Now if you'll excuse me got to go listen to it again. if you are wondering i have lost count on how many I have listened to it. Still loving it.

Let me premise this review by saying that I have a biased opinion of 10 Years. After purchasing The Autumn Effect years ago, I immediately listened to the record over and over again, because the songs were catchy (I think that wasteland was an awful song though). Anyways, because I loved that album so much, I expected the same out of them with each new release. Not to say that their other productions were terrible, but they did not compare to "The Autumn Effect." Their previous release was decent at best, but I feel that they have made a turn for the better with this release. To me this album feels like a story being told, and there are definite lulls contained within. However, that makes the intense songs that much better. For any "fan" who thinks the vocals are whiny or annoying, you obviously aren't a fan, because there isn't much difference in tonal qualities between this album compared to their previous efforts. I cannot guarantee enjoyment to anyone, but I advise everyone to give it a shot. Take your time listening to this, and I hope that it impresses you in the same way it has impressed me.
