Pegasuses-XL is a project forged from the minds of several indie rock musicians including Mark Dale of Disband and Jeff Rosenstock of Bomb the Music Industry!.

This record is comprised of three lesser-known EPs released by the group during the days when this project was still in its infancy. The band's sound is purely experimental and combines synth loops, punk rock energy and danceable `90s hip-hop beats into something that's strange and positively awkward. No matter how many times you decide to revisit the album you'll find that adjusting to its musical content is virtually impossible.

Electro Agitators has received rave reviews from just about every industry critic and music hound worth a damn. Despite what many people would have you believe, this is single-handedly the worst piece of shit I've heard in a long while. Period.

What you've got here are 17 "songs" rife with weird sound effects, sound bites taken from b-rated movie feature flops and the occasional muffled vocal track that's weaved in and out of the worst collection of instrumentals ever assembled on disc.

The best way to describe Electro Agitators is by calling it "noise." There's nothing original or innovative in incorporating weird audio effects and randomized sound structure into half-assed tracks with subject matter that's completely undefined and where all musical elements are lazily arranged.

Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this piece of garbage. Experimental music is fine just so long as it offers listeners some form of substance. Pegasuses-XL is a project built solely around an empty void with a sound that's worth being dragged out into the backyard and shot.

Electro Agitators proves to be a mindless schlock of self-indulgence and is the boiled down equivalent of a group circle jerk complete with Casio keyboard synthesizers.

very well put.

I think this stuff's pretty solid. A lot of is quite hard to digest but the review seems to ignore some it's poppier moments like Pixelated Flowers and $600 man. I think it's rather easy to dismiss this collection since it's not as cohesive as 17 tracks each of the eps were at 5-6 tracks. The Antiphon is the crack as well. Excellent album.

jeff rosenstock is the "bomb" (yes i'm brilliant). BTMI! played an all ages basement show in my home town because there was a 19 show that night. Hands down the coolest thing any musician has done that effects me.

this isnt attack the reviewer because he didnt like something i thought was ok.

i dont agree that this album is what the reviewer describes it as.

but the overall tone of the review and the what the review is trying to describe more aptly applies to the "review" than it does the album

this is hardly a review but more immature dribble, or rather, this so called review is a bunch of "noise"

If these are the same EPs that were on Quote Unquote, then I have to agree with the reviewer. I did not care for this at all. But hey, if you enjoy it, power to you. The "attack the reviewer because he didn't like the same thing I like" BS is getting pretty old, though.

mytherapistsaidgodisdead (April 3, 2009)

manic, you cant do reviews anymore on account of you not knowing anything about music.

score is definitely for the album.

teaessare (April 3, 2009)

score is for stevejones coming out of his cave

i'm looking forward to kudrow

I think it's a pretty fun album. "The Orchid" and "Theme to Athfest" are totally solid. Maybe not the best shit ever, but better than most shit.

chrisafi (April 3, 2009)

I listened to a stream of this a few times and I agree, pretty terrible - a fun side project I'm sure but just no fun for the listener

blanktapesemptybottles (April 3, 2009)

Jeff Rosenstock wasn't in the band at this time, where's your album at asshole?

quoteunquoterecords (April 3, 2009)

hahaha, i agree mr. the bones. i'd like to see one of these rave reviews, they've all pretty much looked like this one... people who are very upset.

stevejonestherealbones (April 3, 2009)

ps electro isnt "noise" in the sense that you use it

this is noise, http://www.amazon.com/Live-at-Brixton-Academy-1999/dp/B000063KOH/ ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1238768817&sr=1-1
