Pure satisfaction.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recommended this album to a friend and when asked "What mood should I be in when I listen to it?", I found I had no idea really.

So, after much thought, I decided that the best word to describe Failure, this release especially, is visceral (meaning felt on the inside, in case you were wondering).

Failure is the only band that makes my insides ache and feel pleasure at the same time. Listening to them is like having really amazing, but really gritty sex. ('Undone' exemplifies this beautifully.)

The overdrive of the bass lines on this album makes my ears tingle with excitement, but every other element is worthy of praise. (I'm a bassist though, so I'm inclined to mention the bass.) Though Magnified has a much more has a raw tone than Fantastic Planet, it is incredibly composed and no other band or album I have ever come across can even compare to it.

Basically, Failure is too much for words, but I had to at least attempt.

For anyone who likes music, this album is a gem and worthy investment."
