"This album strikes me as interesting, although very bad. The 1990's was a unique time in Rock in that it allowed bands to talk badly about themselves, but somehow still remain cool. You never felt that they were actual losers, even though the lyrics declared it. I remember listening to "creep" by Radiohead and thinking that it was the first time I ever felt that a lead singer was sincerely down on himself - the sincerity of the self-defeating song was what made it forgivable, cool even. This Grand Mal CD is not forgivable. The entire CD is full of self-defeated expressions that come off as loser-ish. You can't declare that you've been beaten unless you've truly put forth extreme effort - so that at least you have a little beauty amidst your defeat - This CD is so half assed that when it comes time for the confession of self-defeat, coolness is not pulled off - but pathetic is."
