The first time you listen to Skinny Puppy, you shudder andwonder just how this is considered music. The second time, you listen and think this is still awful, but you're reluctant to stop the CD. The third time, you're addicted like the rest of us. That's pretty much how everybody is when it comes to Skinny Puppy. "Too Dark Park" is often considered Skinny Puppy's best album, as well as their most abrasive. "Too Dark Park" is the first Skinny Puppy CD I started out with, and unless you have some patience, you might want to start elsewhere in their catalog of work. As I guarantee you, you've never heard anything quite like this. "Convulsion" is a good intro to the album, not one of the better songs here, but solid nonetheless. "Tormentor" picks up the pace with a great beat and amazing synths. However, it's no match for "Spasmolytic", nor are any of the other songs here. "Spasmolytic", too put it bluntly, is demonic chaos, this song is just beyond perfect. Is it the evil synths? The cryptic voice and lyrics? Or maybe it's the fact that, even after all that I've said, you can still dance to it? It's a bit of everything, and then some. "Rash Reflection" is another brilliant song, great beats (as usual), great lyrics ("Kiss the master's feet"), haunting synths (as well as a violin), what's not to love?. If there was one song on "Too Park Park" that is somewhat accessible, it would have to be "Nature's Revenge", a great song without screaming or evil synths that would normally scare everyone and everything away. "Shoreline Posion" is a lot like the previous song, minus the vocal drawl. "Grave Wisdom" is the second best song here. Everything about this song clicks like you wouldn't believe, it sounds epic. "T.F.W.O." has a faster tempo than the other songs, and, as a result, is one of the best ones here (that little melody jingle sure surprised me). "Morpheus Laughing" has a great synth intro and I love that, yet another great song. "Reclamation" is an outro, but is nothing short of amazing itself. "Too Dark Park" is, to sum it up best, harsh. And in all honesty, I wouldn't want it any other way. Many pathetic Industrial bands aspire (wave to the nice people Stabbing Westward), Skinny Puppy on the other hand, were. Mental shock, indeed. A masterpiece.
