"...for you to shut me up. I love MSI, but ppl are a bit insane trying to rob us for the neighborhood of $100+ for a CD. C'mon, if you don't want it, sell it reasonably and if you do want it but just wanting to brag, do that on myspace. Every MSI fan who reads this should VOTE this review as helpful for you sellers can see we do agree on this... and if Jimmy's reading this, pls. re-release this album for the core."
This is "Tight - F***in' right"

"...but not worth the insane amounts of money people are selling this for. I reccomend you pick up Frankenstein Girls May Seem Strangely Sexy as a first listen. And even still, just download this album. Anything more than 20 bucks a cd is overpriced. I love this band, but not "115-dollars-a-CD-love-this-band." < /rant >
MSI is a nerd-goth-techno-industrial punk band. A must-listen band if you like Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Dresden Dolls, Ministry, My Life w/ the Thrill Kill Cult, etc.
I like this CD more than "You'll Rebel To Anything" but not as much as "Frankenstein Girls..." This has the same atari sound effect melodys, frantic drum and equally frantic vocals, and most importantly: this CD is full of lyrical phenomenons that bridge the nerds with the goths."
Like nothing else.

"Mindless Self Indulgence are like nothing else on the planet. They have a truly original sound, perhaps due to lead singer Jimmy Urine's self-described hatred of musicians. It's really just a bunch of friends getting together and making some noise (none of them had ever played in a band before this), and doing some insane stuff during the live shows (the lead singer has set himself on fire countless times). If you want an idea (albiet a poor one) of what they sound like, try some kind of horrible mutant stepchild of Frank Zappa, Queen, Atari Teenage Riot (minus all politics), and Wesley Willis. Jimmy, the lead singer, sounds exactly what the record label, Uppity Cracker, would make you think: an over-excited skinny white boy jumping around. He goes through 5 or 6 different vocal\singing styles in the span of one minute (opera falsettos followed by vulgarity-adorned rap), the short little guitar hooks fly all over the place, and the absolutely insane trademark Mindless Self Indulgence drums complete the chaos. "Apple Country" (one of the songs on the album) sounds like a bizarre commercial for a bed and breakfast shoved through 20 layers of crack-induced distortion.It's like nothing you've ever heard. And that's a good thing."
