Mechanical Sunshine is a fusion of many modern forms of metal, with a lot of electronic sounds and half-spoken lyrics. Its fast, in your face and very heavy for the most part and for me feels like a band looking for a defining sound. I’ve not had the pleasure of hearing Houston! Live but imagine that the content of this album works great in a live setting, full of energy and some very catchy shout a long moments.

The musicianship and song writing is decent throughout, the ballads are listenable and fit in with the rest of the album well, although they are probably the weakest songs on the album (but that could be my personal dislike of modern ballads). You are going to hear a lot of influences while listening to Mechanical Sunshine and I can see fans of modern alternative metal finding plenty to like here.

Score: 3.5/5
