CD Reviews

I'm not a machine
Anthony Vasquez | university of illinois - urbana/champaign | 06/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"sister machine gun is the quintessential band. sister machine gun is not the quintessential electronic outfit, the quintessential rock outfit, the quintessential jazz/funk combo, or the quintessential industrial band. sister machine gun, in plain and simple english, is the quintessential band. how multiplatinum status, arena tours, and huge massive obsessive global popularity have eluded chris randall is beyond me. because this band's music is for everyone. chris randall is the musical equivalent of a woody allen (hang in with me). he delivers quality product like clockwork every year. whether it's an ep or a side project, you know you're getting your fix. and it's not thrown together slop. it's quality, plain and simple. not one to make anyone wait and thirst 2-3 years or longer for an album (are you reading this mr. reznor?) you know if his name's on it, it's going to be good. and of course, good is an understatement. each one of his albums strays into electronic dance, jazz, funk, industrial, and all out balls-to-the-wall rock. 6.0 delivers, but in which categories? it's mainly an electronic work, but straying off into acoustic blues-folk (ten minute god) and catchy down temp rock hooks (gonna be right). it delivers on balls-out-fed-up rock on "loser", goes into electronic depeche mode-ish dance on "the best that you can do" and the album strays into around a doezen or more areas. versatility is randall's strength, and always has been. a man who's musical influences (otis redding, john lennon, and einsturzende neubauten) are as varied as his music. smg is the great wind of change in stagnant radio and mtv banter."
Another amazing turn in the evolution of Sister Machine Gun

"Never stale or repetitive, Sister Machine Gun breaks the creative mold again with 6.0. Chris Randall and Co. further explore their electro-rock meets jazz sound and the results are nothing short of brilliant. The first single off of the album, "Loser", is a defiant rebuttal to the corporate spawned Top 40 pop. The album shifts back and forth between catchy songs and straight up groovey audio soundscapes. In case you missed SMG's previous album, [R]evolution, I recommend picking that up as well."

"IMHO this is the finest work to ever leave the grubby little hands of the Positron! crew. 6.0 is a funkified electro jazz trip through Miguel & Mr. Randall's imagination. I find it very hard to describe or compare SMG's music, so I will redirect you to MP3.com under Positron! Records for downloads to ease your curiousity. The Automaton & Loser tracks will give you a pretty good sense of the over-all feel of this record.It has the difinitive SMG sound while at the same time enough musical evolution to be very different from all the other albums. DEFINITLY A MUST BUY!"
