Release and reception[edit] In writing for AllMusic, critic Ned Raggett said "finding its own way around industrial/rock fusions without simply recreating Ministry or Nine Inch Nails, the foursome explores grinding rhythms without an eye to either thrash metal or dancefloors, Lars Fox's roared vocals calling the tune (or lack thereof)." He awarded it three stars, concluding that "Luddite makes for a good slice of Grotus
at its pre-major-label peak."[1] Trouser Press
Trouser Press
noted that the music benefited by possessing a greater variance in composition structure and tighter focus in musicianship, helping to reinforce the band's message.[2] Track listing[edit] All lyrics written by Lars Fox; all music composed by Grotus.
