Maybe I just don't get it.

I'm not sure if the goal here is to be a joke band, write good music or a combination is both. The band obviously is not something you hear every day. That being said, let me cut to the chase; the album isn't funny and contains some of the worst musicianship I have ever heard. Why someone would listen to this for anything other than a quick laugh is something I have trouble understanding.

The band jumps genres frequently, every jump is erratic and borders on unlistenable. In a pollyannaish attempt to rescue the abysmal "songs" from themselves, the vocalist goes out on a limb regularly and falls off each one. Her timbre and tune aren't the worst I've heard but certainly aren't worthy of the self-indulgent, singing-in-the-shower type trials they are put through. Also, to squash the huckster defense I've heard more than once; yes, I've noticed the members of this band can play a lot of notes at a fast pace. But if the songs are beat... who cares?

There are frequent musical attempts at humor, or being ironic... or something like that... scattered throughout the disc. Maybe people get a kick out of that, which is why I'll give the band the benefit of the doubt by giving a nonzero score.

If you ever wanted to hear what the Dillinger Escape Plan would sound like if they forgot how to write, this is for you. For everyone else, I would pass. Maybe I'm taking this too seriously, maybe I'm the wrong guy to review, maybe there's something I'm not picking up on. I don't know what the deal is here, but I'll tell you this much; it sucks.
