The Sun Comes Out Tonight
Released: Jun 2013
Lyrically speaking, Filter are still angry dudes. On opener "We Hate It When You Get What You Want," for example, the band emphatically chants "Sit yourself down, motherf*cker!" On the other hand, the tune's music tells a different story; a mix of dance beats and synth squiggles, it betrays the fact that the act is nowadays more interested in creating club music than the industrial rock of the "Hey Man Nice Shot" years. That said, both "Burn It" and "Take That Knife Out Of My Back" should appease old-school fans who crave the aggro vibes of yore, even if both feel somewhat like retreads.
