ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Specimen 37's second release delves further into the psyche of the Specimen, chronicling a "week" in experiences. The struggle to find divinity and meaning in the seemingly mundane is a recurring focus for the Specimen. Some other topics grappled with are disconnectedness, despair, war, insanity, corporate capitalism, and genetic engineering.

Stylistically diverse, yet with an overall cohesiveness, The Endless Looping Game continues Specimen 37's genre-bending journey into uncharted audio realms. From the angular, jarring rhythms and chaos of "Blow Things Up!", to the soothing swells of "Thursday Morning Jogger", the listener remains engaged.

Specimen 37's first release, Adverse Reaction, garnered some very positive reviews:

"This must be the month for new sounds because the creative six members of Specimen 37 are continuing the trend of engaging, original music with their album Adverse Reaction. Cleverly blending techno rhythms, mesmerizing rock riffs and over-the-top sound bytes, Specimen 37 constructs alluring tracks filled with bounding energy.
The musicianship is stellar as is the production of this intriguing body of work. Specimen 37 reflects the sum of it's parts and it shows as these songs soar with a power not yet common to the masses. This is another album that will have to be experienced to be appreciated, but my guess is after one listen, you'll come away with a remarkable aural experience you won't soon forget."

"It's hard to put a label on Specimen 37. The best way to describe them is 'electro-goth-metal-techno-raver-ambiant with a strong '80's feel.' I still haven't decided if this album is a work of genius or just incredibly pretentious...

...Some of the songs are slow and some are fast; some have lyrics and some do not. Each is unique. Even the parts of the individual songs are unique. This is an album complex enough to keep you listening over and over again."

"Man some creepy stuff. I hit play and ran and hid in the closet... just in case. Space-scapes of the nether worlds abound. Synth bits go woosh and ping and someone speaks softly or knashes the vocals through EQ and distortion (when there is a vocal). Bass feel meanders beneath pseudo club beats with lots of electronica zing. (Must I continue?) O.K. so we like to experiment. We're sick of guitar pop. We want to do it our way (like Frank the Sin-atra). Good by me, dude. Drop a few of your favorites and when the rush ensues, you're here. Space, the final frontier. Don't be scared, read the song titles; I'm here with you; 'First Contact', 'Luminescence', 'Silent Sorrow', 'Enlightenment', 'Worm Hole' and 'Sanctuary'."

FANTASTIC!
The quality of this CD is absolutly fantastic. Every beat and sound remind me of a perfectly orchestrated piece of mastered music inspired from a Pink Floyd and RUSH cd. This opinion by no means takes away from the talent and workmanship of this CD and the telented artists that made it. Thank you for a memorable music compilation that I will treasure!

Keep getting better!
I didn't think they could beat their previous album (Adverse Reaction) but with the release of The Endless Looping Game, I see my fears were unfounded. They continue to evolve their psycadelic jamin' rock sound and have really hit their stride with this album. I've listened to it many times and find new bits to enjoy each time.
They still show hallmarks of bands that influence them but retain their own distince voice throughout. If I had to think of a comparison to any one album, I'd say TELG reminds me of a better version of Roger Waters' Radio K.A.O.S. They topics they explore give the album a sci-fi feel, yet it is still immeadiately accessible.
If you enjoyed their first outing, I don't see how you can go wrong with this one.
