Depraved yet wacky and different

"this was my first donut album. there really is no band to compare them too. they are quite depraved and sick (with songs like hang the dog outside the window) but also imaginitive and musically such a melting pot of punk, psychadelia and rock, with touches of metal and jazz.
the closer (in my life) is something you either get stoned, too, fall asleep too or seduce your babysitter too. the drums are light and the guitars are sleepy and trans inducing. there are more upbeat tunes such as magdalaina. another favorite is hang the dog which, although lyrically weird is interesting and musically dynamic with the start/stop guitar riff. good drummer holds it all together (glad someone stays together in that mess of madness)
donut are an interesting band and this was my first from this band and i enjoyed it very much. i think it is a good place to start if your just getting into them."
The only Donut album you need

"This is one of the masterpieces of the underground music world. There is an obvious difference between this album and their earlier stuff, and that is that they finally learned how to write amazing songs! Before, their content was just gory and silly, and offensive in at best a slapstick way. Now, they have managed to put forth something that actually appears to have come from a deranged psycho, rather than from a psycho-esque comedian. The music is mellower at places, and they pull this off amazingly well. It's actually a surprise to me that this album isn't more popular, and is on my list of the most underrated punk albums of all time. The liner notes by themselves make the purchase of the CD worthwile.This album is truly a work of art. The recommended listening environment involves a smoky room playing cards, preferably something competitive and sneaky like Poker or Spades."
Best when listened to under the influence of Marijuana

"These guys are pure musical genius. The way they blend intelligent lyrics with beautiful songscapes compares only to one other great band: Jane's Addiction.If you have never heard "donut" before, I would recommend buying this album first."
