Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses was a fairly good grind, math, or whatever, core album. It featured dual shrieking vocals, and generally heavier music than what's on Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear. The vocals are still there, for better or for worse, and this time the band move into more jazzy and experimental waters. This marks the point where they stop being a simple mathcore band and start turning into the progressive grind kings when their career sadly ended. One major thing that seperates this from their previous efforts is the generally lighter instrumentation. More effort is put into clean guitar passages rather than the spastic breakdowns of their debut.
Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear starts things off with their best foot forward. The Devil's Dick Disaster, and Texas Dolly are two of the best songs on here. They both showcase the band's newfound tendencies to include cleaner passages into their music. The band does this perfectely in Texas Dolly where the band plays a small acoustic passages and then explodes into a fury of blast beats and shrieks. They mix these two sides, as well as some jazz-esque ones, pretty well as the guitar tone they use for the most of it could easily make an indie rock album. The band seems much more comfortable with their instruments, especially the guitars, Clarissa Explains cuntainment is a great example of this being filled to the brim with great guitar playing. Overall it's the sound of a band starting to branch of and trying new things, and doing a pretty good job at that.
The vocals also are a little better to listen to although if you never liked them this definately won't change your mind. Their style fits the music they're playing and only gets annoying at a few specific moments, but like the rest of the band this marks the point where they start progressing and branching out more. Like a Cat has great trade off between the singers and even features singing that's even listenable this time around. You can can barely understand what they're saying half of the time, but the lyrics are nothing really to speak of.
Plentyl of songs showcase how the band has progressed the end of An Aptly Fictional Description is calming and is a far cry from their debut, and Rememerbrance Dialoge is 7 minute ambient track that slowly builds up slowly with shots of feedback and then explodes. The bass is more prominent here and has some nice bass lines every now and then. It's a solid listen with no song being downright terrible, although the vocals may be too much for some, but it's great stepping stone for the band.
