Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine runs the gamut from orchestral waltzes to Pet Shop Boy-esque dance to Ministry and Sex Pistol vitriol

Our first Requested Review of the year gives us a chance to check out Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, and their 1991 sophomore album 30 Something. Carter USM run the proverbial gamut of not just 90s rock but music history, from orchestral waltzes to Pet Shop Boy-esque dance anthems to Ministry and Sex Pistol vitriol, but with a bevy of digital help. Does the 1991 keyboard and drum programming stand the test of time? Tune in to find out.
