As debut albums go, the 11 tracks of THE .INVALID's impressive "The Aesthetics Of Failure" would by themselves represent a worthy investment of anyone's time and money - described by multiple advance listeners as "a kind of combination of all the best things about AESTHETIC PERFECTION, FADERHEAD and IMPERATIVE REACTION", the tracks also demonstrate elements of the kind of feel and programmed power-in-simplicity that made NINE INCH NAILS "Pretty Hate Machine" an instant hit and timeless classic.
An array of remixes sourced from some of the most highly-regarded and innovative producers working in the field of alternative electronica today - ranging from the witch house of AAIMON and VALHALL, through the glitching of DYM and DIE SEKTOR, the IDM of FRACTURED, VPROJEKT and ALTER DER RUINE to the dance beats of GRENDEL and CYGNOSIC, among others...
A veritable cornucopia of creativity, augmented by the inclusion of no fewer than 4 additional original tracks by THE .INVALID not included in the album itself.
