Powerman 5000: Transform

Sound — 10
This album displays a punk metal grind. It is reminicent of what the sexpistols would have been if Johny Rotten had been friends with James Hetfield. Slight techno overtones in the same vein as Static-x and pre Transform Powerman5000 are evedent but not as heavy as they once were. The guitars have evolved way bast simple smash to a glorious distorted Mayhem. The drums are pure and make you want to throw your whole body into the mashpit that the bass stears. The vocals are the flame that lights the way for every instrament on the whole cd.

The lyrics on this cd are well improvd from the once rocket and robots infested rants that once traveld in the air. (though they were cool as all heck.) These lyrics are now powerd by the term 'be what you want do what is right' this is a mentality that has been forgotten by the mainstream rock world. The shineing point of the lyrics is 'dont be afraid of the future, it doesnt include you it only removes you'. As you see the techno-wonderland still exists but only in little doses.

Overall Impression — 10
All in all this album is PM5K's best. And from what I've heard it will not be the best after the next cd. If you respect good music I recomend it to you.
