"I was listening to Verve Pipe's new album the other day - when this very distinct voice in the background vocals kept tickling my ear. Sure enough it's Craig Wedrin, lead singer of Shudder To Think - one of the most progressive pioneers of late 20th century rock. All I can say is thank God somebody else noticed these guys. Just when you thought there was no more virgin territory for musicians to explore - these guys hijack the tour bus and fly it to mars. This album - which I consider STT's best - takes the rock and roll format paradigm and chucks it unabashedly out the window. It is definitely not for most tastes, but for true connesieurs of wicked hard, wicked funked-up, bleeding edge music - this album will nuke your neurons, melt your melon and squish your squash!! As previous reviews have said - it's hard to describe - but impossible to forget. As a musician You can crash your brain trying to contemplate how four musicians could actually sit together in a room and come up with this stuff!! The drum fill in "Chakka".... the lyrics to "Hit Liquor".... simply the title of the song "Gang of $"... this album is so genius it will TROUBLE YOU how musically inept it makes you feel!!"

"This is a difficult record, but holds many rewards. The first cut, Hit Liquor, will definitely either beckon you in or make you scream for the door. The structures of the song are a bit wild, less cohesive, yet they work."
I Agree with "I Agree" J Nesker.

"J. Nesker pretty much hit the nail on the head for how I felt about this album although I will admit that I have no idea who made "Loveless" by My Bloody Valentine. I first heard some early STT and thought they were OK. I then heard No Rm. 9, Kentucky on MTV and bought the CD. I listened to it a few times and was thoroughly bored. About a year later I started listening to it again and liked it a bit more. I really "got it" a few years after that to where it now has ascended to my #1 album of all time! The rest of my top 5 is in no particular order (Deftones - Adrenaline, Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream, Weezer - Pinkerton, and PJ Harvey - Dry).
One word of warning - a friend of mine whose musical tastes I highly respect listened to this cd and couldn't get past track 4 due to the fact that his ears were about to bleed. If you like harmonic dissonance and tension and release you'll think you died and gone to heaven.
