4 of 5 thought this review was well written

The 4th studio album by the trendy Massachusetts based grindcore band, A.C. Containing 51 micro tracks of pure chaos and mayhem, I Like It When You Die is the perfect album to any hardcore grind collection. Combining gut wrenching riffs of pure distortion and blast beats so fast your ear drums start to bleed with practically inhuman psycho screaming and bellowing growls that make you wonder why the vocalist, Seth Putnam, hasn't passed out and died of a heart attack. What seems to make A.C. so popular in the underground world is their controversial lyrics and song titles meant for the soul purpose of offending or humoring anyone who listens to them, and I Like It When You Die is no exception. In this album, A.C. seems to target homosexuality and subjects that anyone of appropriate fitting would take to great offense.

A Bit Of A.C. Irony
In October 2004, Seth Putnam had a seizure and fell into a coma for two months due to a heroin overdose. His doctors, thinking he was going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life, were ready to pull the plug before he woke up. There was also an argument based on whether or not anyone would miss Seth Putnam, considering the irony of one his "songs" on this album, You're In A Coma, which (if you haven't guess by now) is a song about how gay [no specified] people are for being in comas. Seth Putnam then sued the doctors for their consideration of ending his life, and he is now currently in rehabilitation.

Pros
The album is very even flowed, with each track being short and sweet and to the point (although some point should never have to be made). Standout tracks like Jack Kevorkian Is Cool, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Your Kid Is Deformed, You're In A Coma, No, We Don't Want To Do A Split Seven Inch With Your Stupid F**king Band, and Kyle From Incantation Has A Mustache. Also, the songs that direct hate towards bands such as 311, Dishwalla, Supertramp, and Everclear, let you know that these guys don't take kindly to fanboys of (mostly) underground music that are not their fanboys. Also, as far as grindcore goes, this album is a classic and is highly recommended for fans of old Carcass, Napalm Death, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, and Brutal Truth.

Cons
The brutal honesty of these guy's lyrics (for the most part) can be considered by many as "unappealing." All the songs tend to follow the same pattern of Seth's psycho babbling and blood curdling riffs that can get boring if you listen to it too long. Waaaaay too many songs that use the word "gay." Waaaaay too many songs in general that are too short and come in as quick as they go out. Some tracks are pure filler and have no lyrics to laugh/cry at. Again, the album art is horrible, yet fitting for A.C. in an odd yet satisfying way.

**NOTE: I as a reviewer for this album do NOT agree to the offensive topics of this band. I am a widely diverse music fan, and find A.C. to be a very amusing band to listen to in times when I just want to break the silence. My rating is based solely on the amount of entertainment and production quality of this album and this band produce. I do not abide by, agree to, or promote any of the subjects proposed in this band's lyrics. Thank you.

One of the greatest albums of all time, up there with Sgt. Pepper, Pet Sounds, and What's Goin' On....

Didn't MX delete a review by this band cause he says Sputnik is a family site and that's why the band is called AC on the site?
