The Review:

Bulbospongiosusís debut, Automata is quite a unique concept album, musically speaking. It sounds like a mixture of industrial and modern progressive rock. My first impression has led to many more listens. Itís complex sounding and has elements of metal and avant-garde. I must say that it still hasnít completely won me over but in time it should. It could be one of the sleeper releases of 2009.

I noticed that on CDBaby, the description of the concept is a rock opera inspired by The Wall, corporate life, fascist robots and 1984. the songs are all linked and tell a continuous story. It reminds me almost of Operation Mindcrime, which has a similar theme. I guess you can say that fans of Pink Floyd, Queensryche, Radiohead and Skinny Puppy should enjoy this. I can recommend checking out the samples then make a decision whether or not you want to purchase it. This is music for forward thinkers, so the mass may not appreciate this band and album as much.
