Ribozyme: Presenting the Problem

Ribozyme's people have presented reviewers with quite the most pretentious load of guff it has been my pleasure to snigger at. To whit; "Ribozyme's solid approach to their work has been evident from day one: refined soundscapes where every nuance is carefully painted out in wallwide (sic) tapestries of sophisticated rock." Need more? Try this for size, "A continuous effort to evolve and congeal true identity has led Ribozyme to be compared to numerous giants of their genre. From Tool to Filter, from Nine Inch Nails to Sigur Rôs, although the distance to the above has never been greater. Ribozyme is truly a nation of its own, as evident by their fifth album: Presenting the Problem"

Some of Presenting the Problem is genuinely quite hypnotic ("Downside Advantage") whilst "Scale of Values" allows the band to rock out a little bit in a modern metal kind of way. In other places, however, it's just a bit dull and that's never a good thing. Perhaps the best thing about this record though, is the huge bass sound which bounces out of the speakers like a puppy on drugs and is very much worth the entrance fee by itself.
