before i heard this album, glassJAw had been my favourite band for three years. as is expected, when i heard of the change of lineup and the change of sound, i was apprehensive, perhaps even disappointed, but within the first moment of 'tip your bartender' all my doubts perished in the firey onslaught of 'worship and tribute' in all its glory. as in EYEWTKAS, there is no common thread here, nothing to cling onto for safety. this isn't easy listening, but what else would glassJAw give you? here, in one plastic case is unadulterated emotion. pure, noxious, and intoxicating. it makes you listen. daryl's ceaselessly captivating voice, whether tuneful or otherwise demands your attention. todd, justin and dave on guitars draw you in and larry sets the rhythm for what is going to be the bumpiest and most glorious ride of your life. good luck.
