I wish I liked this album more but this just bores me a bit.

Holy Mountain is definitely better but this is still awesome.

If I saw Sleep with Slayer and the Melvins, I think i would crap myself. Brown note overload.

Sleep is one of the best bands you can see live. A priceless opportunity, truly. Please do not pass up the opportunity if you live nearby this tour.
I couldn't listen to this all in one spin. I need to be stoned to do it.
