Bizarre, twisted soundscapes are painted out for the listener by this album. No words can really describe this album fully, as to do so would take reams upon reams of paper. Despite it only being their debut, Sikth have already reached a high level of lyrical and musical proficiency. One song can jump from calm melodies to schizophrenic guitar riffage. Then there's the duel vocal attack of Justin and Mikee, with the latter being the oddest sounding vocalist I believe I have heard in a long time. His vocal range comes across particularly in the song 'How may I help you', which according to the CD inlay is based on the chapter of a novel Mikee is writing. The song sees him going through a range of accents and voices which tell the story of the characters in his novel. Some of the songs can be overly long though, and on the odd occasion the wailing vocals of Mikee can grate a little, but on the whole this album shows great promise for the future.

Okay, I'll be honest - over the years I've seen Sikth live on three different occasions, each time supporting some other act that I'd come to see, and each time I thought they were total shite! An incoherant mess. This kind of music isn't easy to appreciate on first listen and certainly not through the sort of sound mix that support bands are usually afforded. Perhaps then it was unsurprising that my friends and I always wound up laughing when we noticed that Sikth would once again be supporting whatever band we were heading out to see.
Well let me hang my head in shame. Shame at having ignored one of the most talented, electrifying and all round talented groups currently operating in Britain (the world?). My friend gave me this CD for Christmas with the simple comment, "Mate, we were wrong"!
What startles me most about this CD, each and every time I put it in on, is how incredibly coherant it is. A lot of hardcore bands can sound like they are just trashing their instruments with little thought for concocting something that's actually interesting to listen to (because melody and sensible song structure isn't cool, right?), but this is not the case with Sikth. Though they leap from one time signature to another faster than you can yelp "Dillinger Escape Plan", everything is tied to a brilliant sense of rhythm, and (shockingly) melody. The twin vocalist thing has become something of a cliche of late, but the two blokes in Sikth really do have a sound of their own, while of course still sticking to the kind of screeching/crooning one might expect.
Beyond the blindingly fast riffs, frantic drumming and genuinely exciting nature of the music (I haven't felt this euphoric and thrilled since the first time I 'got' Converge!

OK. To start I'll just say that (as mentioned in many of the reviews here on Amazon) this is not for fans of Linkin Park, or other standard radio-play rock bands. This is hardcore metal at it's very best. Alot of people would just comment at this as being "noise", but as another reviewer mentioned, this is technically amazing music. Yes, it may well be very, very 'insane' but the middle of the album shows off SikTh's mewlodic side (which I was very surprised at, being a fan of the older, heavier music). Anyway, here's a rundown of the songs;
1. Scent of the Obscene - A brilliant opener, with a fast paced intro before it breaks into the verse with an opening line comparable to that of "Blind" by KoRn (YEAHHHHHHH!! I See your second face...). The vocals in the verse are almost rap, and would seem to any first listener to be "easy" to perform, but taking into account that both Mikee W. Goodman and Justin Hill (the vocalists) are swapping lines very rapidly, it's technically brilliant. The song cuts into the more melodic chorus, before cutting to a interesting breakdown. 4.5/5
2. Pussyfoot - My personal favourite off the album, that is full of amazing technical guitar work, fast paced drumming from Dan "The Loord" Foord (as always) and brilliant lyrics. Even better than the EP version. 5/5
3. Hold My Finger - Not as good as the version off the EP, still brilliant though. It seems to be faster than the original, but lacks the hard-hitting edge of the first version. However, it is probably the most technical song on the album, and features the fastest bass drums I have ever heard from Dan (just before the outro). Outstanding. 4.5/5

It's nice to see a British band take on a style of music most often performed by American bands and show them how it's done. Sadly, Sikth don't quite manage this, though they do give it one hell of a good effort. The type of music I'm referring to is the ultra-technical hardcore played by the likes of Converge, The Locust and current kings of the scene, Dillinger Escape Plan. Sikth are very good, make no mistake about it, but DEP are still the boss. With some cracking songs like Scent Of The Obscene, Skies Of Millenium Night, and their astounding cover of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' Tupelo, they can match anything The Locust can throw at them, but in my humble opinion, both DEP and Converge are still ahead of them, although Sikth do have points in their own favour. For starters, the use of twin vocalists is inspired, and gives them a very unique kind of sound. Also, from time to time, DEP do get a bit technical-for-the-sake-of-being-technical and it all becomes a bit much, something Sikth stay well away from which keeps the listener engrossed rather than confused, always a good thing. In the final reckoning then, Sikth are the finest technical hardcore band this country has to offer, and we should be grateful for them, but they are not quite scene leaders just yet. Superb first effort, though.
