Pendulum's third album, Immersion, is something of a hybrid of the group's first two albums, reverting back to the debut's foundation in drum 'n' bass while also referencing the widened stylistic scope of 2008's In Silico. While it provides a fair amount of material for those who prefer either release, Immersion also stretch out here, leaning heavily toward industrial-style rock on a handful of tracks while veering toward metal on "Self vs. Self." "The Island," meanwhile, is surprisingly pop-oriented. The Prodigy's Liam Howlett guests on "Immunize," one of the bold album's more raucous moments. ~ Andy Kellman
Billboard (p.32) - "The result is a sound that fits firmly in the rock mainstream without losing a club friendly underpinning that makes it a bit more hip than standard issue dance-rock."
