Album Review

In the earlier part of their career, the Dillinger Escape Plan's sound was a glorious frenzy of unfathomable aggression and musicianship, with the band mashing disparate parts together to create something akin to a puzzle made up of pieces from random boxes that, somehow, made a complete picture. Now over a decade out from the savagely genius Calculating Infinity, the band has been continually refining its sound into something that, while still musically interesting, feels sharper and more focused. The results of this refinement shine through on the band's fifth studio album, One of Us Is the Killer. While some hints of the kind of math-metal and prog the band previously trafficked in still linger, the album has a more visceral and in-the-moment feeling, so while there are still plenty of time signature and genre changes scattered around the album, they end up feeling more like spontaneous fits of aggression than intellectual exercises. This shift toward playing to the listener's gut rather than head gives the Dillinger Escape Plan a newfound level of accessibility without diminishing the impact of their punishing sound, and though it might seem like they're smoothing out the edges of their sound and turning their swords into plowshares, the reality is that they've just turned it into a different kind of weapon, proving themselves once again to not only be one of the most innovative metal bands of the last decade or so, but a band that seems truly capable of doing anything.

Customer Reviews

Great album, but best bought in-store

One of US is the Killer adds a fresh new sound whilst retaining The Dillinger Escape Plan's unique style. Whilst it does add a new sound, it's not exactly a revolutionary piece of music, but any Dillinger fan will be keen on this album if they have enjoyed Ire Works or some of the older material. This is some of Dillingers best work ever (in my opinion) and is highly enjoyable, 5/5 stuff.

One issue, however, is that if you do buy this album on iTunes then you are paying more than the store bought price for less quality. This upload is in 256kbps, which simply is not good enough for a multi-billion dollar music oriented coroporation in 2013. If you don't mind missing out on the finer pitched tones then go for it, but there is a very noticable difference between this upload and 320kbps versions of the album. This is normally not a HUGE issue, but it really affects the overall experience since this album has such a 'large' in your face sound that is seriously dulled by the quality drop. Get your act together apple, HD releases are nothing new and spectacular, and many other downloading services on the internet are providing FLAC's, (let alone 320kbps).

IF you are quality obsessed and need the optimal experience then go buy a physical copy (not sure if you can download from a legit source in 320kbps anywhere else). If not, then go ahead and grab it here. I have no grudge against apple, but I simply don't find it acceptable to be paying more for less under any circumstance. Other than these issues, the album itself deserves a 5/5, and is worth a listen to anyone who has enjoyed Dillinger, or just enjoys a bit of healthy chaos

Brutal

Dillinger has done it again. They have taken their music further, pushed more boundaries, and melted more faces than ever before. This is just an incredible album, pure and simple.

NOTHING SHORT OF BRILLIANT!

DEP have released an absolute cracker. Prancer, one of us is the killer and hero of the Soviet Union are my choice picks. Do yourself a favor and pick up this belter of an album!

The Dillinger Escape Plan create maniacally intense, crushingly metallic, and decidedly hardcore punk-infused jazz-time-signature-invoking compositions displaying an unparalleled musical bravery, precision musicianship, meticulously thought-out, and complex structuring, and rigorous physical endurance. The band's guitarists and drummer are regular features in publications geared toward the guitar- and drum-playing set. The depth of extremity and mental challenge presented by their music virtually...
