This is the definitive noise rock album; hell, this is the definitive 90s underground rock record, period. No one was as downright perverse and dirty as the Jesus Lizard in their prime. Fans of Converge need to get their hands on this fucker ASAP
This is a unique record not for the weak minded. Although not particularly noisy, it's incredibly intense and jumpy. The vocals are perhaps the strangest part, described by Michael Azerrad as sounding like "a victim with duct tape over their mouth yelling". The rhythm section is incredible with groovy riffs and powerful drumming. Steve's production is what makes the album feel so right though. Overall, an incredible album by an amazing band.
If your music-listening preferences fall in the area of loud/kinda scary/stuck between punk and grunge/Albini-assisted/riddled with slithering basslines, this may be your godsend. A nearly flawless half-hour of Texas-tinged dementia rock.
