Skinny puppy's albums previous to VIVISectVI are really good and influential. However, VIVISectVI may be considered the first masterpiece by a band which should be considered as the most influential industrial (or whatever you may call it) music. VIVISectVI is a collage where every ingredient is valid to conform a music you may never heard before: guitars are not excluded, of course, Skinny puppy being one of the first electronic bands in ending with that absurd antagonism between electronics and guitars. VIVISectVI starts with 'Censor (I'll write the single title, since I'm not allowed to write the real censored title', a song which represents perfectly what is to come: they dare to begin an album with more than one minute of pure noise. Then Ogre begins to sing and shout and a guitar opens its way into the chaos of noise. 'VX Gas Attack' is similar but even better, with a very catchy beat; 'Harsh Stone White' and 'Human Disease' are colages of sound sculpture where the rhythm is constantly changing and avoiding boredom and repetitiveness. 'Testure' is one of the most accessible Puppy songs ever, where Ogre's voice almost (almost)lacks distortion to transmit his anti-animal experimentation thesis. 'State Aid' is the noisiest track and maybe the worst. 'Fritter' is all composed of samples, a very important element of Skinny puppy's music. 4 extra tracks make this album maybe a bit long but never boring. This is, IMO, together with TDP and Last Rights, the best SP album; its conceptual unity (both in sound and lyrics) make this cd a masterpiece, in my opinion. And i must admit the first time i listened to puppy i hate them, and i have had this album for 4 years now and only now I have really learned to enjoy it. At first it sounded weird and irregular; but as Puppy say (following Baudelaire), regularity lacks sensual appeal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
