What cartoons are to real life, BNL are to pop music. They somehow manage to escape all the laws that restrict musicianship in pop music and come out with songs that you fall in love with. Listening to songs like Grade 9 you realize the music is like the dynamite exploding in the coyote's face and nothing happening to him other than his fur turning black. And it is exactly that. Pure and simple fun. And that's just on the surface. Scratch it and you see a wealth of talent and musicianship that completely takes you by surprise. Pure gold.

This album is a real grower. Has some gems and is very well made technical nu-metal. More than just stuff to headbang to. From the epic Choices to straight all out headbangers like Determined, this album might go onto become a nu-metal classic of sorts, showing how diverse it can sound (not a quality generally associated with the genre)

I didn't hear any AFI material before this but this album is completely enjoyable with some very catchy yet goth punk (not exactly a very common combo). In fact the tracks that sound like "The Killers" only slightly darker are the best. A killer opening to dance tunes like Miss Murder to more emotional songs like Summer Shudder and Love like Winter, it also grows on you the more you listen to it. The only song I felt was out of place was Kill Caustic and the album could have done without it IMO

I've wanted to review this for a long time but always put it off thinking that rating a more or less obscure artist with something just above average wouldn't really generate interest. More or less because, let's face it, Melissa Auf Der Maur used to be famous, with bass gigs with both The Hole and The Smashing Pumpkins in her career kitty but this is very close to lame. There are some interesting songs here but the cliches outweigh the positives. Further, well, seems Ms. Auf Der Maur was some sort of sex symbol in the 90s. This record sounds like she's still trying to live those days, with premature lyrics (and ironically mediocre bass). The redeeming factor is the other instrumentation though resulting in some very good alt. rock moments. It's good for a few listens, as music somewhere in the background. Not for serious listening

I got this album after watching the Progenies video and well.... I was a little disappointed. It's brutal, there's no doubting that and Progenies (minus the second verse) is a pinnacle of sorts as far as metal goes IMO but the overall album is a little more droning. Maybe my opinion here stems from the fact that I don't listen to a lot of extreme metal, but I felt that the production let down the album a lot. I heard very little lower end bass frequencies making distortion just seem like noise instead of heavy and as such all the tracks began to sound alike. But it does have its positives too of which some are the brilliant use of symphony to add to the "brutal"-ity of the songs, Shagrath's vocals and the technical yet melodic (most of the times anyway) instrumentation; this album, in the end, holds the distinction of making me revisit a set of genres I had shunned as meaningless noise.

This is definitely a solid album but fails to stand out in terms of musicianship with the sound coming off as many other pop punk bands today in the first half. Where they really show their uniqueness is in the second half. There's no denying that this is catchy stuff and the lyrics are much more offbeat than what most bands of the genre deal with, making them a little less creative American version of the Arctic Monkeys
