5 stars This album is actually almost impossible to describe, one has to listen to it, and not only once or twice to discover its beauty and uniqueness. It's really an incredible experience and revelation listening to it. Probably one should take the lyrics not too seriously, these guys really love to mock about everything with their nice funny humour. One has just to read the "common questions" on the front cover. Or is there anybody reasonable who can take such questions seriously? Anyway they are great, the mixture of BJORK-ish vocals and SEPULTURA-alike metal together with avantgarde music is just awesome and unique. This record is in fact a 200 percent improvement to their debut, that I find absolutely unbearable, just a big mess of noise IMHO. But here with their second output they created already their masterpiece. At some moments it's a bit hard to support and slightly nerve-killing, like the longest track "Baby-Doctor", which is certainly not the best one of the album I'd like to say, but the rest is more or less quite enjoyable and for sure very unique and outstanding. I think we still can expect great things to come from this band. This album is for sure the most unique and innovative release of the year 2004 in any category of music. That's why it deserves the five stars rating!! Everybody looking for some music that is not common and ordinary should run for this one immediately!!!
