5 stars The little pop up box that comes up when you press 1 star or 5 stars(to warn that they are ratings that should be reserved) made me stop for a minute. Is this a 5 star CD? Yes,it will scare off the layman and the newbie to prog,but(big BUT),this rating is about the experience I had with it. It might not be for everybody but if prog was for EVERYBODY, no band could get a 5 star rating. That is why prog is not's not for everybody. THIS ALBUM RULES!!!! I was a huge fan of the 1st CD and was indeed shocked the first time I heard it. I was lucky enough to see them 3 times on the first tour and had already heard "Everyone I went to Highschool is dead"...they annouced it. When I heard it live in '91 it left an impression on me that will go to my grave.So when I saw it listed as the 1st track I flipped out in the record store. I ran to my friend at the counter and told him the story of this song live. SO HEAVY,SO DISSONANT,SO GODDAMN CRAZY... Anyway, This album is like hot sauce. Some can't handle any,some like it,and some seek the hottest. This is for lovers of jalapenos and habeneros. I was so blown away from this album(saw them twice on this tour...the DC show was a benchmark for me) that is changed the way I enjoyed and approaced(I play)music forever.

This album was a straight middle finger to Warner Brothers,Jocks,Posers,Wannabes,MTV,and even it's rightful fans. "WHAT YOU LIKE CRAZY MUSIC?! THOUGHT" EPIC"(Faith no More) WAS COOL AND OUR FUNKY BREAKS ARE GOOD TO MOSH TOO,PATTON IS A HOTTIE,YOU LIKE THE SONG ABOUT PORN?!?!?! WELL... FUCK YOU! Try this album out... If you are really down."

Downright HEROIC.

and this album shows up...

I could go on about each song and describe them and celebrate them...but what is the point. They are songs that you have to hear for yourself. Buzz desrciptions like avant garde,jazzmetal,circus,post- whatever have no meaning. Just be prepared for an assault of sounds. And some of the creepiest themes of the 20th century. Buckle up or Shut up! Enjoy! P.S. I promise only to go over 50 words for this review.
