4 stars Well, I got turned onto these guys by my friend who is a total emo screamo psycho fan. I thought: What in god's name are these guys doing on the archives? So I gave them a listen. BOY. I was amazed. These guys are so fresh, they sound like they're taking elements from Protest The Hero, The Mars Volta and Fall of Troy. Seriously! Theyre that good!

I Just Got This Symphony Goin' sounds amazing from start to finish. The opening guitar lines amaze me. Seriously, Thomas Erak's playing I can only vaguely relate to Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. His style is so unorthodox and frightening. If these guys ever come to town i'm in. (10/10)

Act One, Scene One, doesn't start out as awesome as the latter, but the drumming was so progressive, it hurt my brain. This is a decent song, but doesn't really put me in the mood to listen to the rest of the record for some reason. Not the best, but still okay. (8/10)

FCPREMIX, starts out so outlandish and progressive, IT HURTS. This song is flawless from start to finish. It has a very interesting instrumental section. It just really proves that these guys aren't accidentaly progressive. They are prog to the max. (10/10)

You Got a Death Wish Johnny Truant has an amazing guitar line, but after that the song rolls downhill. (6/10)

Mouth Like Sidewinder Missiles. Wow. Amazing title, makes me think of the scene in Godzilla when the helicopters are chasing him through the city. The song really gets intricate in the first verse and basically through the whole thing. I'm beginning to relate the drummer to Phil Collins, mainly because of his unorthodox style of playing. The instrumental at the end is very compelling. Great song. (9/10)

The Hol[]y Tape sounds very annoying at first, but then gets into this intricate instrumental, which then becomes, this relaxing, Genesis/Yes ish little soft music break. A nice break. (9/10)

Laces Out, Dan! Features some of the best song structures in the entire record. Also some of the best singing. The lyrics are very interesting too: Someone here is not right. Very cool. (9/10)

We Better Learn To Hotwire a Uterus. Holy crap, what an awesome song title. If only the song was as good. I'm giving it a seven for a ridiculous mid song instrumental. (7/10)

Whacko Jacko Steals The Elephant Man's Bones. The song that brought me here! How interesting. The song starts off ridiculously odd timed. I can't even count what time they're in, I just now the song is awesome. Then it goes off into a ridiculous instrumental. Just when you think the song is over, you check the timer and see there is two more minutes of awesome left. This song is ridiculous. RIDICULOUS I SAY. Best song on the record. (10/10)

Tom Waits...what...Jesus H Christ. This song is like Dance of Eternity. Insane times signatures and a ridiculous need to wank musically. EXCEPT, it impresses and doesn't bore. I like the party aspect of the song and the vocals are really sweet. AWESOME GUITAR SOLO! Awesome! (9/10)

Macaulay Culkin! An 8 minute monster! Coming from these guys, that means only good things. Wow, this is actually straight ahead for these guys. This is pretty wicked so far, I absolutely love it. This song is unprecedented levels of Epic. It goes into a slow section towards the middle which then becomes this very avant guarde ending. Very cool! (9/10)

I can safely say these guys are NOT just a screamo band. These guys are pure, amazing, relentless prog. The MOST underrated band ON THIS SITE. Check them out now. 4 stars.
