Primitive Race began as an industrial collective of rotating members, the sophomore album "Soul Pretender" takes a compelling new alternative rock direction. Founder Chris Kniker opts for a static lineup featuring vocalist Chuck Mosley (Faith No More) & drummer Dale Crover (Melvins). Group veterans Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, Tricky, MGT) & Erie Loch (Blownload, Wiccid) round out the lineup

FLA is a SONIC ELECTRONIC BULLDOZER. That's about the most concise way I can describe how this album feels to me.
'Alone' is hands down my top pick here, although I do find 'Rubber Tube Gag' sticking in my brain a lot, too.
My one criticism (constructive of course) is that sometimes the lyrics feel underinspired, but it's not a big issue in the grander context of this otherwise excellent album. This one definitely grows on you, too. Good stuff, and solidly recommended.
Long live FLA! Benjamin Crockett
