4.5 superbEnotron | November 8th 09

I think it's time somebody offers Glenn Branca to do scores for horror movies. Not that this is all sort of freakish clatters of noise. There are certainly wonderful, actually well-organized and composed moments. The drums on this record are phenomenal, bringing the various guitars into direction and rhythm. The guitars on here work hand in hand, and bring this large orchestrated, dissonant yet melodic pieces. The onslaught of sound on this record is truly awestriking.

COOL ALBUM

3.0 goodNevermindAlex | February 16th 13

An exceptionally inaccessible album for any casual listener of music, and well, even the
music lover. It's an album driven by what it wants to be, erratic.
