Album Review

In 2000, Apartment 26 issued its debut LP, Hallucinating, an album heavily — heavily — influenced by the gimmicky cross-pollination of industrial and metal favored by aggro types like Orgy and Gravity Kills. A full four years later, Apartment has returned on a new label (Atlantic), with a new album (Music for the Massive), and a fully rehabbed sonic exterior. Tchad Blake seems to have been one of the foremen on this reconstruction project; he handles most of the production and mixing, as well as a few instrumental turns.

"Stupid World"'s thick, buzzing guitar line is pretty catchy, while insistent processing cleanses its rhythms for maximum accessibility.
