Review Summary: Your brain is now a pile of mush. You wander to a bear cave. And then the bear eats you. And now we have a zombie bear
They say you can make some of the people happy some of the time, but you can’t make all of the people happy all of the time. Judging by the achievement that is Mauled By A Magical Bear With Scalding Hot Liquid Cheese Spraying From Its Eyesockets
someone forgot to tell this to Mr. Koth Dolgomoru, aka Chopping Mall. It’d be too easy, and too lazy to look at the cover, the song titles, and the lyrics, and dismiss this as another goregrind shock project but MBAMBWSHLCSFIE
purposely seeks this specific knee-jerk reaction to divert the shallow-minded. After all, the madness that lay within MBAMBWSHLCSFIE
wouldn’t sit well with those who are content listening to another song about strawberries. What Chopping Mall has accomplished here is a piece of art that transcends pretense or ego, seemingly written by someone who resides in a plane beyond such fickle aspects of human psyche. This means the album’s oeuvre and meaning is truly characterized by each listener. One’s personality, one’s mood, one’s hopes and dreams, all play a part in how MBAMBWSHLCSFIE
is digested by each individual. And it’s this aspect that allows the album to converse so causally with that little voice inside your head. As your mood changes, and as your goals change throughout life, MBAMBWSHLCSFIE
never loses touch, and it always knows just what to say. It actually wouldn’t be a stretch to equate MBAMBWSHLCSFIE
as a sort of Rosetta Stone for the human soul. Its indecipherable exterior what with a bear melting a camper with scalding cheese shooting from its eyes serving as merely a flimsy metaphor for those too afraid to let their own egos get melted away. But for those willing to take the dive, welcome to nirvana, the water is perfect.
