4.0 excellentMasochist | September 4th 08

A lot of people don't know who The Ernies are. You might have a clue, however, if you've heard the soundtrack to Baseketball (but really, who has?), or have ever played the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. The song "Here and Now" is theirs (not Cyco
Vision...that's Suicidal Tendencies). That's where I first heard of them, and that's why I checked them out. Lucky me!

This album is so awesome! They mix so many styles of music: metal, punk, hip-hop, raggae, jazz...and amazingly, and they mix it well (they call it Jive on a song off of their previous album)! I love the ease in which they can meld genres together, and I
love the fact that most of their music just makes you want to get up and move. rThe problem that most people will probably have with this album is the lyrics--they deal mostly with science, and their beliefs and love of the universe as an entity. That may
put a lot of people off, though I can't say that about myself: "Here and Now" still remains one of my favorite songs.

I believe that the band is defunct, however. The most you hear from them nowadays is in commercials: the songs "Organism" and "Here and Now" are often played as background music on a lot of TV spots (especially on the SciFi Channel). Well...I hear them a
bit more than that: I still listen to this album all the time.
