“This album is trippy from the get-go. The cover boasts some kind of tentacled, eyeball-thing flying over a mountain range. A mountain range with a mouth and a single eye. The music itself doesn't quite evoke that acid trip vibe, but the sense of confusion you get from the cover certainly does justice to the issues tackled both lyrically and musically. Instrumentally speaking, it's hard to put your finger on where these guys are coming from. There's tons of tap bass, reminiscent of technical metal, or prog-rock like Rush, and guitar that reminds me of a cross between the 90's Seattle sound, and that artsy, indie shit Modest Mouse was peddling before they started gunning for a radio audience, on top of drums with jazz sensibilities and punk fury, all layered under scathing social commentary from a less-than-melodic-yet-ever-professional vocalist... It leaves one unsure of how to relate, but relating all the same.”
