  1. Unstable

    Unstable is Adema's second and also final album to feature its original lineup with Chavez and Ransom departing from the band after its release and then again after their reunion. It was released on August 12, 2003. It has sold about 400,000 copies worldwide. Its radio single was the self-titled song "Unstable", which also had a music video, but it didn't get very much radio play. Many songs relied more on instrumentation and harmony instead of distortion in comparison to their previous album, but the album also has some of the band's most aggressive work. It was less successful than their first album, debuting at number 43 on the Billboard 200 before quickly falling off the chart.

  1. Unstable

    un-stā′bl, adj. not stable, unreliable, infirm, inconstant: in such a physical state that the slightest change induces further change of form or composition.—ns. Unstabil′ity, Unstā′bleness.

    Bio-Cyber ​​Consciousness In reality, logic is quantum vision, just scrolling through a video player, so we can see a scenario of an unstable future. But going into Bio-cyberconsciousness, which forms an alternative reality of dreams, since technology is a biomechanical symbiote that absorbs our consciousness and thereby gains mind, forming a duality of the mind in which we begin to get confused about who we are - this is a black hole that scatters our mind into pixels of memories , a mosaic that is more difficult to assemble over time, this is how growing up in oblivion is formed - it is like a lethargic dream of illusions that takes us to another space. Hypper is a dream in which time accelerates during sleep, being on the verge of two worlds: reality and illusion. You miss life itself and the most important core of life is love. Love should become the main instinct that contains the filling of true happiness, namely the constant need to give your sincere love. Techno dimension in which there is only a sphere of consciousness called our immortality. Artificial hibernation in artificial happiness, since reality is an eternity in which a person feels only depression as he feels infinity - this is the immortality of consciousness, and infinity is the truth. Blindness from terabytes of HD imagination is a great denial of its essence and meanings depend on our desires. A place where we will never see infinity, since it is limited only by our associations of self-interest. Death itself is a great awakening from the slavery of desires, because the soul longs only for peace. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
