These niggas got layers on layers on layers. I don't think its any coincidence Phil Spector's arrest and ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn's release occurred concurrently. The Blood Brothers took Spector's concepts to the next level of insanity, and he had to up the ante.
This is one of those very rare albums that pleases a lot of listeners that wouldn't normally poke post-hardcore with a ten-foot pole. It's absolutely wild and shocking at times, but when it's over you feel like you've experienced something truly original and enjoyable.
Catchy rhythmic dissonance, killer hardcore riff's, oddly melodic passages and one of the most original vocal duo's ever make Burn Piano Island, Burn a modern punk masterpiece. Mathy, catchy, noisy, melodic, what the Blood Brothers have on display is full of contradictions and disparate influences, but ultimately works to create a sound that might never be achieved again.
