Filter - The Amalgamut (2002) Retail CD
Alternative Pop/ Rock
The Amalgamut, the third album from Filter, finds them deep in the process of refining their bleak industrial rock design. Frontman Richard Patrick was part of the touring incarnation of Nine Inch Nails back in the early 1990s, but gave it all up to perform his own brand of mildly controversial schlock-rock. Seven years on, The Amalgamut finds Filter a much slicker beast, polished up with the latest studio tricks and touting a fresh, mainstream-friendly songwriting nous that points the way forward, but never quite delivers in full. You've got to respect the way that "American Cliché" and "Themore… Only Way (Is the Wrong Way)" can take carbon-black rage and meld it into chrome-smooth alternative pop songs. The trouble is, all too often, Filter successfully cop the glossy stadium-rock sound and sound-of-the-future production techniques, but forget to throw in the populist hooks to keep anyone interested. "Columind" is rage of the most sterile, impotent kind, while the drippy "The Missing" breaks out the acoustic guitars for a quiet moment that falls dismally flat. Why anyone needs an album like The Amalgamut while similar groups of the calibre of Radiohead and Tool exist is, frankly, something of a mystery. --Louis Pattison
