Coming as number 3 in line of albums after the crushing "Mental Funeral" this album really has a lot to live up to. Sure it isn´t better than "Mental Funeral" but it sure comes close to being just as great.
The songwriting has gotten more spastic and seemingly hap-hazard but I don´t think that it is all that random as it might seem at first. The songs sometimes shift from very slow to very fast in an instant and the riffs also vary a lot. Some riffs are plodding and consist only of a few notes while some are more "technical" or what ever you´d like to call them. All this creates a very odd feel and combined with the muffled sound it really makes for an interesting experience. To be quite honest I think it is the abrupt changes and "randomness" of some of the songs that makes this album so good but of course the songs are great on their own as well. I should also mention that the songs have gotten shorter on this album and hence the long list of tracks, 18 in total.
There really isn´t much more to say about this album. The musicianship is as should be expected good and Chris Reiferts vocals sound maybe a bit different then they did on "Mental Funeral" but they are still great. If you like their earlier stuff you will most likely become fond of this album as well if you give it some time.
