This release makes for an expressive and varied trip through various rock subgenres, and deservedly sounds more like a pure rock album - to call this release "chip rock" seems unnecessarily reductive and dismissive of its more universal musical appeal. Was always impressed by how huge and symphonic everything sounds in the mix.
Favorite track: Papercut You Into Little Pieces.
Chiptune-based rock and roll here. Stylistically it ranges between hard and post-rock, with some ambient moments filling out the epic closing track. If one were so inclined, It would be fair to include this in the prog rock category, without reference to chiptune (<rant>and let's be honest, the inclusion of lo-res/lo-fi synths shouldn't define a distinct musical genre- "chiptune" is as much of a genre as "guitar music" is </rant>).
Recommended to fans of prog rock and/or chiptune.
Favorite track: They're Like Locusts (feat. spamtron).
