"It gets 4 stars because at heart, it is still Thought Industry, but on this, their 3rd album, something is clearly missing. I mean, other than the mandatory Salvador Dali cover art (and that absence is bad enough!) One is forced to assume that it is Dustin Donaldson, the former drummer who parted with the band after Mods Carve the Pig. Apparently he lent a great deal to the style of Thought Industry's sound, because the tracks that comprise "Outer Space" just aren't quite at the same level as the tracks that made up the first two albums. But Oberlin is still here, with his thesaurus, dictionary, and a pile of backissues of The Nation on hand. Which means, for those unfamiliar with TI, that the lyrics are still quite an adventure. The music is still highly unique, and there are even a few selections here that qualify as Thought Industry classics in their own way. But it is not the place to begin with this band."
The third T.I. album.

"I realize that perhaps I should start by reviewing the first album by Thought Industry, 'Songs for Insects', but this, their third album, is by far my favorite. There really is no way to peg Thought Industry into a musical category. Progressive is the only word that comes to mind. This album is definately a step away from the previous two, which is one of the things you have to appreciate about this band. They never limit themselves to one sound like so many other bands do. I don't want to pick any particular song as my favorite, because the whole album is full of them. I do, however, recommend that you listen to all the samples that are available. They're more or less just a tease, though, as this album has it all. This disc sees the start of a new drummer and bass player, but they mesh right in with the stylings of the veterans, never missing a beat. I fully recommend this disc to anyone that wants a departure from the norm, and feels like delving into something that will provoke your mind to thought, and bring a smile to your ears."
