Dead Flower Posted October 24, 2007 Share Posted October 24, 2007 Simply put, this album remains one of the best and freshest rock/metal releases of all time. I probably didn't really appreciate just how good it was at first, but over the years I've found myself loving it more and more with every listen.For me it's like Faith No More on steroids... almost like they listened to The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies and decided to make similar shit, but louder, heavier and even more fucking insane. No wanking around, though. The majority of songs are short, sharp and under 4 minutes, yet they cram so much into each of them. The lyrics can be overly political at times, but nicely balanced by fun shit like Bounce. They were even singing songs about Tapeworms (check out Needles) well before Scotty boy in Sucker Train Blues.Cool riffs, sweet drumming, great harmonies, and Rubin got the production perfect. The songs are all so even, but my top five would be:- Atwa- Prison Song- Chop Suey!- Aerials- Deer Dance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
