Short Bus |Reprise Records, 1994|

Hey Man Nice Shot, Dose, Under, Spent, Take Another, Stuck In Here, It's Over, Gerbil, White Like That, Consider This, So Cool

Robert Patrick did his best in Terminator movie and his not less known brother Richard leads Filter band after leaving Nine Inch Nails. Both bands made a career in the 90's, when industrial rock gained people's attention. Filter songs are softer, well arranged, ready to be played in any alternative radio show. Filter's Hey Man Nice Shot kept was a top rated song at many of alternative charts and the videoclip was played often on the TV. Lots of punk spirit, rock energy and industrial coolness. (NINa, 2002)

Title Of A Record |WEA/Warner Bros, 1999|

Sand, Welcome To The Fold, Captain Bligh, It's Gonna Kill Me, The Best Things, Take A Picture, Skinny, I Will Lead You, Cancer, I'm Not The Only One, Miss Blue

Impetus and brake. Such a pattern lasts 'till the very end of the record. Cute vocals turns too predatory shouts and the tempo pumps the beats. As examples: It's Gonna Kill Me (the best!), Welcome To The Fold, I Will Lead You. Take A Picture it's a song torturing a long time on VIVA II TV charts. Filter makes ballads either nice or mawkish. This one is nice ;) Cancer song it's a very typical song as for the band, can't stop saying aloud "Yes! It's Filter!". And Miss Blue, an accoustic song about love disappointment.(NINa, 2002)

Amalgamut |Warner Bros, 2002|

You Walk Away, American Cliche, Where Do We Go From Here, Columind, The Missing, The Only Way (Is The Wrong Way), My Long Walk To Jail, So I Quit, God Damn Me, It Can Never Be The Same, World Today, The 4th

The album begins in a very nice way - lots of guitars. Then we get a refrain and it sounds like another STP clone. Similar melodies. Then American Cliche comes and kills! :)) The same solutions used in I Will Lead You known from Title of a Record. I see an image of huge track driving on a high speed through a crowded city every time I listen to this song. Columnid is a sharp song but The Missing is a ballad too much. The best hot song on this record is So I Quit - the wall of guitars, fast tempo, characteristic Patrick's screams. Nice rhythm and drums in It Can Never Be The Same. World Today sounds strange, sounds like a remix or a new point in Filter's history, we'll see. The 4th finishes Amalgamut in a mysterious way... (NINa, 2004)
