When one gets past the change in stylistic direction, Filipino rock troupe Chicosci's sophomore record isn't that big of an improvement from the band's 2000 debut Revenge of the Giant Robot; at the time of the latter's release, this outfit still went by the moniker Chico Science. They later "transformed" it in order to avoid any confusion with the Brazilian singer. Dissimilar to Chicosci's last offering, Method of Breathing features a sound that I can only describe as an unimpressive compromise between 36 Crazyfists and Ill Nino's material. It's not bad, per se, though Miggy Chavez's milquetoast vocal performance and the unapproachable production screw the overall quality of the album over. On the plus side, Method of Breathing has admittedly rad instrumentation, but this still isn't enough to overcome whatever problems exist throughout Chicosci's second LP.
