The snare drums especially sound like samples, in their repeated uniformity. (Machines is good tho! Mebbe I'm wrong tho.)
i agree the snare sounds overly even in places, but i'm putting that down to the snare having quite a chunky tone, often being high in the mix and compressed, and lots of close mic vs. room sound (cymbals are very quiet).
the drums are mechanical in places, again i would say that is just because that's how cardiacs drummer are - very locked down to support all the surrounding craziness. there are also some quite "human" moments too...?
