Reviews of Machine
Supremacy: "Deus Ex Machinae"
"I've waited for this album
ever since I stumbled upon their remake of The Great Gianna
Sisters by Chris Hüelsbeck. The album is a bit different
from the other music Machinae has produced. But it doesn't
make it bad. Not at all. It leans a bit more towards punk
rock than we're used to, but a few tunes shows us the band
we know. The only tune that we've heard before is Attack
Music, though this is in a new, and IMHO a better version.
A warning to new listeners though. Be prepared to be sid-ified
by the Sidstation. All in all a good album."

"Well, after all the long-awaited
CD has arrived ! The music seems to improve towards the
bottom of the album. Ninja is awesome, and the last instrumental
track is really an earcandy. Production does not seem at
top, and some sounds seem a bit too flat and thin. Music
is energic and very well played. Keep it up, we're waiting
for the second release !"
- Pyrotas, Italy
"Just one word can sum this
album up, AMAZING! it is truly incredible and some of the
tracks never get old like Killer Instinct or Insidious.
The tracks are truly great and the only bad part is that
it's only 72 minutes long and i just can't wait till the
2nd album (if one is to be done) comes out."
- Sean Lally, UK
"To tell you the truth I was
disappointed. I downloaded must of the free tracks from
their website (which is excellent by the way) and enjoyed
their raw and often cocky style. These qualities are unfortunately
greatly subdued or missing from most of the tracks of the
album. Things are not pitch black though. Some of the tracks,
such as "Player One" and "Super Steve",
are VERY good. But I must say I miss some of the free tracks
like "Hero" and "Fighters from Ninne".
- Ted Saarikko, Sweden
"Unfortunately the vocals make
the album very mediocre. So if you've only heard their C64
remakes, then you might want to hold off on this one. The
tracks "Dreadnaught"; "Player One",
and "Super Steve"; are the best in my opinion,
but the album leaves a lot to be desired." -

"Quite frankly this is my favorite
album I own. I love Machinae Supremacy's original style
and sound. While it was my love for gaming that originally
helped me find Machinae Supremacy many years ago, before
any dream of the album "Dues Ex Machinae" had
come to light, its their original style and sound thats
kept me a fan. Their music is excellent and I would suggest
anyone that enjoys rock to check them out. They have a ton
of original music available for download at www.machinaesupremacy.com
that you should check out if you haven't heard them before.
Also keep in mind that this album is still available in
the second print form. The new album "Redeemer"
couldn't come soon enough, I can't wait." -
