Riding on the success from their self-titled major-label debut, Kurt decided to have the band experiment more on this album with a more radical, harsher sound. The other members agreed somewhat, feeling that they should stay on level ground with the pop sensibilities. This is more pronounced on tracks like "Seek 200" and "Hard Currency".

Hack - Information Society - Song Listings (808 words)
The band released the more experimental Hack in 1990; although it contains a few tunes that are just as good as those on the debut, the album is marred considerably by repetition and excess.
On Hack, too many of the tunes drag (like the unbearable "Fire Tonight") and sound alike ("Now That I Have You" is a virtual rewrite of "Think"), and the overuse of sound effects and production gimmicks suggests Information Society was attempting a more aggressive (or perhaps obnoxious) sound.
This album is also cluttered with annoying, pretentious between-song sound collages that serve no purpose other than to test the skip mechanism on CD players.
