iTunes Review

Fusing thundering breakbeats with mammoth hard rock, Pendulum launched drum 'n' bass into the stratosphere on their second album. From the swaggering blues riffs and searing howls of "Showdown", it's clear that this is a new breed of D 'n' B—more Led Zep than Metalheadz. Throw in horns and surf guitar ("Propane Nightmares"), vocoders and IDM ("Midnight Runner") and what might be robots playing T. Rex on kazoo ("Mutiny"), and you get an album that could convert even the staunchest rocker to electronic music—and vice versa.

A new but great Pendulum!

This is a brilliant album, although it takes a few listens to get really used to! Pendulum's style has changed slightly since Hold Your Colour, and now involves more tune and vocal work than before. The drum'n'bass is still there, but more mixed in with other music styles, and so Pendulum really have created their own new genre here. My personal favourites are: Different - Great tune, and great vocals. Similar in style to 'Hold Your Colour' (the track, not the album), and would be very good to see live. Propane Nightmares - This one took a while to get used to, but the non-vocal part starting at 4:02 is fantastic, and a real club tune. Very memorable, and really shows how Pendulum have moved on as a band. The Other Side - The vocals here are similar to that of Daft Punk's 'Digital Love', which is one of their best tunes in my opinion. This helps to create a unique melody, and builds up the song to make it one of the more original songs in this album. The two other voices in this track are an example of how Pendulum is still the same band as it was a few years ago, using other voices in their tracks to improve it, and make their songs more unique! 9,000 Miles - My personal favourite on this album! If you liked 'Girl In The Fire' in Hold Your Colour, the chances are you will love this. It's one of the quietest tracks in the album, but along with a good drum beat during the middle, has a fantastic (yet short) vocal section at 1:27, after the song is built up slowly. Then, at 1:50, say hello to the new 'Girl In The Fire'! This track should be an absolute classic, while it is one of the calmer ones in the album, it feels very natural and is pretty relaxing, even with the volume cranked up. This track really changed my mind about the album, it's a good bridge between the old and the new Pendulum. Granite - Great beat, great tune, great vocals. If you're looking at this album, chances are you've heard it, and it really is very good. Builds up to a great climax at the end of the track, this is a great club tune and will be heard everywhere this summer! The Tempest - Interesting guitar section at the start, and although I was surprised at the first vocals, it improves throughout the track, and you can feel the tension building up throughout it. A well structured song, and long enough for everyone to be satisfied. Fades off at about 5:12, but comes back with a great 'club' section, for a couple of minutes. Drum'n'bass fans will love the last parts, and fans of the newer, more vocal Pendulum will be more interested in the first part of the track. Finishes the album off with style! The other tracks are less memorable for me, and although they are all good, the highlights for me are the ones above. There will be many people who aren't impressed by this album, because it is a little different from the last one. I think that's really sad - drum'n'bass is a very small genre, and it has a pretty small fan base to go with it. While I'm not saying it's a bad genre, it didn't leave much room for Pendulum to get itself known, and I really think they've done the right thing. Sure, this album is more mainstream, but surely that means more people will like it, meaning it is a good album? Pendulum have mixed several genres brilliantly here, such as drum'n'bass, rock, techno, trance, pop, and have shown how great they can be. I really look forward to any future tracks from this band, as they are really worth the hype they've been getting recently. They will be BIG this summer! Thanks for reading!

This is a fantastic album in its own right. Fair enough, its not the Pendulum of Hold Your Colour and before, but does it need to be? Pendulum have always prided themselves on making music thats different from the dross that pollutes the charts week in week out. This is what they have done here with In Silico. It may not have the subtle melodies, crashing beats and dance-floor immensity that Hold Your Colour portrayed, but it does still beat the hell out of anything in the charts at the moment. I would much rather here rocky breakbeat than i would hear some whiney pop WAG sing about umbrella's or boyfriends!! This album will shock many people with its diversion away from the norm. No, its not your conventional drum n bass, its not the same beat that ALL other deebee songs have, its not talking about drugs, guns and being a "badman", its breaking down the boundaries between genres and sitting in between with prowess. Its dance, its rock, its breakbeat, its electro, in places its even new-wave, but its certainly not dull. And to all you critics out there, remember the furore surrounding Hold Your Colour, the "oh its not true Pendulum" reviews......well its here again isnt it? Not so keen to criticise Hold Your Colour now are you? Now that you realise that it was actually a work of art! Give it a few months and you will all be raving about this album like the fickle fans you are....commercial DOES NOT equal bad....it just brings different sounds....and all hail the Pendulum Revolution. To follow everyone elses suit, I'd give In Silico 9/10, its not Hold Your Colour, but its so close it scares me

I was excited until I heard it, now I am offended

Why have they released this? It is not true Pendulum and all the song have started to sound the same. Does anybody else think they have just slowed down or sped up old songs and tried to sing at the start of them?? I have selected one star because there is nothing lower. A very VERY big waste of money. If you think this album is good you have no right calling yourself a Pendulum fan!! If it is the first Pendulum album you have heard then STOP and listen to the Hold Your Colour album as this album has the REAL Pendulum on it. Enjoy
