4.0 out of 5 starsGreat indie music!28 Oct 1999

Mindful of Slint, Jesus Lizard, early Velvet Underground, and mellower Voivod songs. High clear vocals complement the heavier bass/drum/guitar sound. Good production: clean enough to hear everything, but not shiny and overproduced. More developed songwriting than on the last album - also more melodic and less "noisy". Definitely recommend for anyone looking for great independent pop/punk music.
