‘The Agent Intellect’ is the third release from Detroit post-punk band Protomartyr (featuring Joe Casey on vocals, Greg Ahee on guitar, Alex Leonard on drums and Scott Davidson on bass guitar). Frontman Joe Casey describes the sample track ‘Why Does It Shake?’ as a "back-handed ode to humanity's resilient self regard in the face of inevitable oblivion. Then the trap door opens.” It’s a dark, seething industrial track with an aggressive undercurrent that sounds a bit like Joy Division.

I don't normally post reviews but I couldn't let Clinton get away with this one! No-one should be put off buying this.
On first listen I agreed with your man Clinton, but I perservered a few months later and wow what a record. On constant rotation. A step up from the last one. I recently went back to the first and this is a big step up.
So, I implore anyone to buy this if you're into post punk or whatever that means. Up there with Ought in terms of what they do. Would love to see them live.
Give it another chance Clinton .... (will do - Clint)
