I have to admit I've never really been a fan of this band but I will say this release blew me away. I always knew their technical skills were far and above the majority of the hardcore bands out there, and this CD makes that opinion concrete fact. Their intense starts/stops and songwriting prowess is displayed in a way that I have never heard of them. They also have quite a good range of variety, mixing in rock and roll influence along with some clean sung vocals, some screaming, and mind bending mathamatical complication that cannot be rivalled by many bands out nowadays.

My favorite track on this CD as 'Phone Home', a gloomy and extremely technically twisted ad offbeat ditty that is comparable to putting your nuts in a blender and smiling the entire time. This is the trademark of all their songs... variety, creativity, and not giving a shit what anyone thinks about their music. There is even a track that sounds a whole lot like Nine Inch Nails, it's obvious that Reznor and his crew have influenced DEP quite a bit.

Although I can still say this will never be one of my favorite bands due to the fact that it's just not really my style, I will say these guys have more talent than not only all the slop on MTV but most of the underground scene as well, and will continue to bulldoze their way to popularity by using the same formula and staying true to their musical integrity. They will only continue to get more popular, and I say good for them.
