Format: Audio CD
It never ceases to amaze the discerning listener how bloody incredible these guys are and how they continue to achieve great results yet still retain a cult status with age. The quality is absolutely bursting on this one, fuelled by a penchant for good ole' anger and backed up via a throbbing groove. Nothing new, then? Well yes, and no, a new album cover; depicting a deceased woman tied up is a good representation as any to what Unsane are all about. Other than that, it's close to 50 minutes of nothing but assault and battery to all the senses. Nice one!

This is the best thing Unsane have done since Singles '89 - '92, which is saying a LOT because that is, in my opinion, one of the best American punk rock albums ever made. Visqueen is really THAT good. I'm not sure what it is exactly, because its not like they've really changed anything from the signature sound that makes them instantly recognisable.

All the elements are still in place - the distorted vocals, the pummelling drum track, the squeal like a pig guitars and gravel in a barrel bass. What places Visqueen on a par to their early stuff is each song has its own little thing going on. Despite the bedrock elements of their sound, there is enough variety and diversity to keep it interesting.

They also seem to have slowed things down a bit and given the songs some space to breathe, which helps a great deal to keep it interesting. Combine that with the awesome production, cover art and totally cool album title (although I have no idea what it means) and you have some vintage New York noise rock here, 20 years after the fact. The first four tracks are particularly slamming... my favourites right now being Last Man Standing and This Stops at the River. Get some!

This is the best offering Unsane have delivered in studio album format to date. Production is of a higher quality yet retains their trademark hardened raw edge. That said, don't let this lull you into a sense that they have softened in any way! Oh no, the sheer brutality of every track is still present - there's no 'sell-out' here, but somehow they have managed to make it sound just a bit more polished, perhaps reflective of a more mature approach and a slightly more laid back feel. It comes across better vocally also, less distortion and effects, but with no compromise on the raw natural power. Every track is massive, there is no one track that stands out as they are all SO good...OK, the opening 'Against The Grain' perhaps just creeps ahead with it's cool intro and then heats up gradually burning with crushing guitar & defined bass. It's incredible how a three piece band makes such a HUGE sound. Real NY hardcore at its hammer slammin' guitar riffin' bass clatterin' best. Your album collection should not be without it - Just BUY IT!

Like Wine, this band gets better with age! 14 Mar 2007
By Alejandro Leon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fans of great heavy music should be all over this right now. This band has released their strongest effort to date. Recording and production is absolutely amazing! The song writing is fine tuned, perfect, and heavy. I dont think any other band has the idea of what instruments should sound like better than Unsane. It's a shame this band isn't at the forefront of heavy music right now being that this album is absolutely impeccable. Then again, maybe them being the independent music scene's best kept secret could be a good thing....I mean do we want corporate morons ruining every single aspect of heavy music? This is the best band no one has heard. It's unfortunate for them but for those who discover this band, they'll see why they are such a diverse and special rock outfit.

THE BEST UNSANE RECORD. BUY IT. SEE THEM LIVE. 30 Jun 2007
By neveraquestion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Blood run was good, but it appears to have been a just a warm up for VISQUEEN. I agree wholeheartedly with the last guy's review. Visqueen is Unsane's best produced/sounding record to date. It's solid all the way through, all the songs are catchy and memorable, and the grove is HEAVY througout the whole album. It's a HEADBANGER from start to finish. Dave Curran really steps up with his vocals this time too, his voice is like ACID. Unsane's got 2 really great singers and it SHOWS on this LP. I've been a good casual fan of Unsane for years, but this record's really brought me back to being more of a "hardcore" fan. Keep up the great work fellas. I cannot wait to hear more!

absolutely brilliant... pure genius... 15 Mar 2007
By Self Induced - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
its hard to believe Chris Spencer has been keeping Unsane going for just about 20 years now. they've put out some great slabs of bloody music over the past 2 decades, but I have to say, I think this one might be my favorite. the style of songs isn't that much different than 2005's Blood Run, but I think on Visqueen, the production is noticeably better. its louder, clearer, and more definted. also, the vocals have improved substantially. all summed up, I think this is overall a better bunch of songs and probably their strongest. HIGHLY recommended would be an understatement.

Unsane is back, and your speakers will love it! Simply amazing how these guys keep doing what they do best. This is in the top three of their releases for sure. Very addictive. If youre not bobbing your head to this theres something wrong with you!
Against the Grain- classic sounding unsane, a little slow but crunchy.
Last Man Standing- Chris Spencer working the Fender Telecaster like only he can.
This Stops At The River- good beat layed down by Vinny, throw in some harmonica and some catchy lyrics (thats what it takes, there are no brakes, ive made mistakes.) and you got a good one.
Only Pain- kind of a surprise song here. One of my favorite songs on the album. Nice climatic build up, good song structure. A pleasant departure from their usual stuff. Unsane power ballad if you will.
No One- a new take on Vandal-X. Saw them live and talked with Dave Curran about this song, said they did it because Chris didnt want to perform Vandal-X anymore. So you get something very similar, hard charging drum beat, and two sweet break downs. Great song.
Windshield- wailing guitar parts in this one. While his tele gently weeps.
Shooting Clay- sounds a little like This Plan off of Occupational Hazard not that theres anything wrong with that.
Line On The Wall- Dave gets to throw down some vocals on this one, and he sounds like Chris was his coach.
Disdain- another pummeling beat by Vinny, hes an amazing drummer kids.
Eat Crow- (eat crow, you will some day. eat crow, thats just the way.) classy.
East Broadway- an instrumental jam to close it out. good beat, could do without the (cricket) sounding noise though (its not Melvins noise thank god.)
A good album for rookies to the UNSANE experience, and a trophy for those of us who love and know em. These guys deserve respect!
if you like unsane, its a safe bet youll like this 14 April 2007

not my favorite unsane cd out of what i have but its still unsane sounding like unsane and to me that is a good thing. they have a great sound, and while a lot of their songs sound alike they all individually sound fresh due to the aggression and controlled anger this band plays with. preview track 2 on this cd if you want to see what i mean. i would rate this cd slightly higher than blood run and definitely better than the cutthroats 9 cds. however if you are new to unsane, i suggest as a starting point (out of what is still in print) the greatest hits cd/dvd lambhouse, its a great collection.
