Sister Machine Gun [reviews]
Burn |WaxTrax! Records, 1995|

1. Red, 2. Overload, 3. Hole in the Ground, 4. Disease, 5. Burn, 6. Dispossessed, 7. Better Than Me, 8. Snake, 9. I Don't Believe, 10. Inside

Coming off a bumpy road of albums from Sins of the Flesh to The Torture Technique, Sister Machine Gun continues to walk on that road with their third album Burn. To summarize, Sister Machine Gun had an extremely repetitive and pop album, then a diverse and heavy album. To change up styles yet again, Burn combines both and adds a more — I can't believe I'm saying this — funk influence.

So, what we got on our hands is an industrial funk rock album, similar to what Die Warzau once was. "Red" and "Overload" will appeal to those funk fanatics. "Hole in the Ground" draws up memories from The Torture Technique with its cool guitar riffs (if you can find the Video Version of the song, go for it).

"Burn" is a lot more slow-sounding and is Sister Machine Gun's most recognizable song so far. The majority of the song is soft and relaxed, except the chorus, which takes the heavy guitar riffs of Sister Machine Gun, yet toned down.

Unfortunately, the majority of the album has the same fate that Sins of the Flesh had: Repetitiveness. Although "Hole in the Ground" is more metal, and "Snake" has a jazz influence (what the fuck?), the rest are similar, industrial funk-wise.

Although Sister Machine Gun has finally found their own sound in the industrial world, it's not diverse enough to hold on to. (Xenerki)
