A welcome change from the band's earlier industrial pastiche, Pitchshifter's Infotainment integrated staccato drum'n'bass percussion and comprehensible vocals to end up with the best album of the band's pre major-label run. Songs like "(We're Behaving Like) Insects" and "Product Placement" were as loud as ever but instead of the usual post-punk hardcore metal sound, the walls of noise were broken down into small chunks and only detonated within the pockets of proper choruses and hip-hop rhythms. The bad-tempered jungle instrumental "Hangar 84" was the most significant, pointing the way forward to the preposterous but no less convincing peaks of www.pitchshifter.com.
