Nothing earthshaking, but still definitely worth your time

"This CD EP is a little over 30 minutes long. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Snog's unique brand of Noam Chomsky-inspired techno-industrial, this CD is a decent introduction, though first-time listeners would be better off with "Dear Valued Customer" or "Third Mall from the Sun." For those of you who are fans of Snog, this EP is well worth your time. The first track, "The Future," is a classic. (The same version can also be heard on "Remote Control" and a different version can be heard on "Buy Me, I'll Change Your Life," so most Snog fans are probably already familiar with this song.) The second track, "The Meat Boutique," is a sinister and compelling instrumental that is in some ways the best cut on the CD. The next, "Naive Giant (F.E.M.A.)," is a fantastic dance remix of the song from "Dear Valued Customer." It's a little cheesy, but in a good way. The fourth track is a dub version of the first track (sort of). The fifth track, "We Decorate Your Life," is slow, loud, pounding, and ponderous. It's pretty good, but it can also be found on Snog's "Remote Control" album. The sixth track, "Semi-violent," is a brief dark ambient piece that evokes images of a deserted carnival. The final track is a no-vox version of the first track. Nothing earthshaking, obviously, but a really good CD nontheless. For fans of Snog this CD is definitely worth a few of the dollars they earned by picking up the crumbs of the faceless multinational corporations that silently and cruelly rule all our lives."
