Edgewater – We’re Not Robots (CD)


Sound: B-     Music: C-



If you wonder why the Rock Genre has collapsed, you need listen no further than We’re Not Robots, a lame, bizarre, unexciting, tired, flat, pointless 2006 album by Edgewater that does not know what it is trying to say or do.  They may be saying things they understand, but here they are doing a rock album and they have a song called Rock Is Dead, which fails to make any big statement or sense.


Trapped between clichés and formulas, this ultimately plays like Blue Man Group for idiots and anything about being human or deep falls flat in forgettable tune after forgettable tune.  If I went through the titles, I could come up with more and more insults.  I think I’ll quit before I really trash this disaster, but you should skip it.


The PCM 2.0 16bit/44.1kHz Stereo is rough, limited and not so well mixed.  They may not think they are robots, but the harmonic distortion unintentionally gives them that bad 1950s Sci-Fi robot vocal chic.  Geez is this a dud!
