"This is sludge with a different objective; sludge that is not content with simply battering the listener into submission, or drowning them in tar riffs. The myriad influences, songwriting depth and ear for battered melody speaks to something more.

You will get battered with a riff, but you will have to wait until the time is right, and then when the payoff is delivered Starve demonstrate the good sense not to keep hitting the same button over and over again. Repetition works sometimes, but too much breeds contempt, and usually boredom. I’m pleased to report that is not an issue with this record, with a perfectly pitched set of riffs, ideas and progression."
