In Silico represents a pivotal turn in Pendulum's musical direction, one which has drawn lots of negativity. While I'll admit I'll miss the original sounding material, this album is still good. This album has caused much controversy in the Drum & Bass community since the single "Granite" was showcased in early 2008. This album represents Pendulum's "new" sound which is very different to their previous sound. Here, Pendulum have headed in completely new direction which is less Drum & Bass orientated and forms more of a rock/electro hybrid. Expectations of this album were initially so high because everyone was expecting an advance from their debut LP which was totally massive in the Drum & Bass world.

What would happen in you crashed classic club rhythms into classic rock? Pendulum pick up the pieces on their sophomore album, but American debut, In Silico. It's a "Showdown" between late-'60s hard rock and raging techno beats on the set opener, as the band blast the arena with their big, bold sound. The Tempest," which bookends the set, is filled with ominous clouds, while a metal rain splatters the grooves. Throughout this set Pendulum swings across the rock spectrum

Overall, In Silico sees Pendulum undergoing a bold and brave reinvention, one which will see them both alienate old fans, and gain many new ones. What remains to be seen is where they go from here - in a SputnikMusic list I made a while ago (on the subject of "Collaborations I'd Like to See"), I threw out the idea of Pendulum working with Devin Townsend. At the time, this was merely a random idea I'd come up with, with very little basis in reality. As it stands, Pendulum are in the middle of an interesting transformation, and In Silico is a snapshot of their current form - a solid album, if a little bit uncertain of it's place - but nevertheless, an interesting document and certainly a worthwhile listen.
