CD Reviews

Cacaphony of guitar violence produces a strange aesthetic.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At the heart of this album's aesthetic is its juxtaposition of blinding guitar noise wrought of pure distortion and lee's beautifully poetic spoken word. The guitarwork is gut wrenching, painfully distorted, and at times becomes complete audio violence in which harmony and melody, are not ignored but destroyed. This is anti-music, with no pretense of being nice. It is harsh, abrasive, it rarely approaches conventional standards. The spoken word on the other hand is just the opposite. Beautifully crafted and poetic, its a touching reminder of something serene in this maelstrom of guitar carnage. In a word, this album is brilliant, though not for the feint of heart."
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brilliant, brilliant sound + spoken word album by Lee. Powerful, frail, beautiful and ugly all at one time. The outcome is indescribable. END"
