AUTONOMY: The Art of Work in the Age of Digital Reproduction: LP

Musically, this is pretty good. Kind of like a politicized Pornography-era Cure: crashing guitars, a dark and plodding bass, tribal to minimal percussion. A very dark and moody sound. However, the vocals really ruin this. Sometime he does a good job of it, but all too often the emotion is overwrought, or he just sounds flat. It’s really hard to overlook this and just listen to the music.
