"I'm pleased to see that this CD is available on Amazon because it was hard to come by back in the day. It deserves to be heard because 20 Dead were a saddly underrated band.
The first word I'd use to describe this CD is "aggressive." An amalgam of industrial, hardcore metal, with a touch of rap and even new wave (check out their killer version of "Safety Dance"), 20 Dead were simply better than the rapcore scene they preceded. In my opinion, this is their best CD and far outshines their self-titled release, largely due to a change in vocalists and the natural maturation of the band as a whole. They pushed themselves on this CD and it shows.
If you like aggressive music, take a minute and give these guys the chance they deserve. And if you can find it, Garage Demos is also definatly worth a listen."
Starts out great and closes out poorly

"When you put this CD into the player, you'll be amazed by the first three songs, if you are a fan of the music. The band is creative and the singer does a good job of expressing his ideas. But then you move on to song 4 and there is a woman singer in the middle, who is rather wrongly put there. She doesn't belong on that type of an album. Song 5 is not horrible. Then you go through the rest of the album and the songs are a bit off-beat and don't seem as they were written at the same time as the beginning of the album. Overall a good choice for anyone who likes rap-core, but I suggest their first CD for any hardcore fans...GREAT ALBUM..."
