Customer Review

on 7 February 2003
This album is a 100%, bona fide classic. The main thing that hits you right from the crazy discordant opening of "Pretty Lush" is the sheer amount of emotion that these guys put into their music. Frontman and lyricist Daryl Palumbo is startlingly honest and it feels like you can feel his soul bleeding through the speakers each time you listen to songs like "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" (about Crohn's disease) and the brilliant "Motel Of The White Locust". The interplay between the guitarists Justin Beck and Todd Weinstock is also fresh sounding, managing to add to the songs whilst remaining completely interesting musically as single entities. The production, by Ross Robinson, who is perhaps best known for producing the debut Korn album, also reflects the mood of the music - ragged and raw, at times grating like gravel in a fresh wound. It must be said that this album IS NOT an easy listen, by any stretch of the imagination, but it IS a VITAL one. In a world where music is ruled by plastic rock and pop acts with fake angst and no soul, we need bands like Glassjaw even more.
