their guitar work has always reminded me of two squirrels fighting - but in a good way.


hahaha, so true

i think his voice adds a good contrast to all the 'pretty' guitar parts and vocal melodies, thats probably what they were intending it to be, i also agree that a better screamer might not be beneficial either it'd take away some of the quirkiness in the band

Well either way it looks like he is gonzo for better or for worse.

The black guitarist is doing the screamed vocals for now, I'm not sure if they will replace him or not.This Message Edited On 08.19.08

Great Review!
And Yes Jon Mess is missing from the band. But Will, has been doing screams live for DGD. He is surprisingly, very good at screaming. I was happy that they sounded great live a few weeks ago. The band has soo much more energy live now, then when they had Johnny.

This cd is great.

It's a shame that apparently the screamer and someone else in the band said peace.

Great review too, only thing is I kinda wished you would of talked about each songs strengths and weaknesses instead of "The Robot With Human Hair Pt.3"

Becides that super job.

I guess I did mention TRWHH Pt.3 a bit to frequently, but I also covered like six other songs I think. (for future comments concerning why I didn't mention this or that song, see previous statement concerning ruining the surprise of listening to every song without already knowing what to expect)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? what's with the lyrics? did these guys just quit church and decide that fuck and shit are awesome words to use in every sentence or what? I mean I love cursing as much as the next guy. but lyrics seriously say nothing. they don't have a point. it sounds like he's just saying fuck lyrics. I mean "FUCK THAT SHIT?" are you joking? then there's parts where he's like "I WAS TRIPPING ON THIZZ" or some shit. is this a joke? what the hell. they're also kinda assholes. They're playing here in my town on my birthday. I'm CONSIDERING going. but I'm not positive. we'll see. I'll probably buy this album. JONATHON MESS IS A TERRIBLE SCREAMER AND LYRICIST.

It seems that half the songs are a lyrical mess here, but its somewhat easy to ignore most of the time. The other half doesn't really cuss, so I don't know whats up with that. Maybe Mess was just ridiculously pissed at something and decided that the only way he could convey it was to drop the f bomb every six seconds...

I would think the other members of the band would be like WTF mate and just kick him out before the recording.

Like didn't anyone telll him during recording, "maybe you should tone it down abit".

i love this album
they lyrics are kinda awkward...he curses a lot when it seems unnecessary but its not to hard to get past. they arent exactly bad. just kinda hard to get used to. and yes apparently jon left due to health issues?
idk thats what it says on wikipedia but i really dont trust that site at all.

I have listened to this album twice so far, and overall I am pretty disappointed. The band has improved musically and I love the new guitar parts, but the vocals have gone down. The new clean singer is decent, but Johnny was better and more soulful. The screamer has gotten worse and the lyrics are atrocious. Downtown Battle Mountain is the stronger album IMO.

I wish they just kept that shitty breakdown and lyrics out of the song.

that part wasn't just pointless
its actually literal
the girl that nic and kurt are "fighting" over gets hit by a truck and dies, and that is witnessed by jon, who is some kind of omniscient.
kinda weird, but yeah lol thats what thats all about.

I was not aware of the above statement...
But yes, even if that is the case, the million f***ing bucks/thousand f***ing f***s part is still totally pointless ...as well as the line WTF...actually thats probably the lowest point in the ablum...
That or "The first thing I say in the morning is f*** that s***"

The lyrics and his vocals alone dropped the album to a 3.5 for me. Horrible.

The last track is the worst song they've done, and I've just listened to their entire discography since this was released. I've only gotten through the song twice, and just can't listen to it again. This Message Edited On 08.20.08This Message Edited On 08.20.08
