This album is average. Compared to when I usually say an album in average, I don't mean it in a bad way. I think it's an entertaining record, produced ad nauseum. After a couple listens, I softened my initially dismal opinion into one of grudging acceptance, like having a barren womb and learning to.
This album is average. Compared to when I usually say an album in average, I don't mean it in a bad way. I think it's an entertaining record, produced ad nauseum. After a couple listens, I softened my initially dismal opinion into one of grudging acceptance, like having a barren womb and learning to go on living. I think the early half of the record runs together. The real reason I'm not completely blasting this record is "Satellite" which saved this record for me. The middle is really the only good part of the disc apart from "Cemetery" which after not liking it, I really warmed up to. It sounds nice, I mean they produced the fucking record forever. The fact that some of the drums are triggered and are not the actual drummer (though live I would imagine they would be) is okay though I prefer bands only recording what is not too feasibly away from the live sound (all I remember from seeing SO is feedback, maybe they heard what they were playing but nobody else did). "Dig" is on here which is disappointing because I had great promise in this due to the Strung out Fat club 7 inch mainly because of "Lost Motel" which I really rocked out to. Why dig instead of Lost Motel, I dont know, I think Dig is subpar in comparison. Maybe it'll be the bonus track.
