3 stars Words cannot describe what I thought after listening to this album. It certainly is... wel... different. You'll find no epic suites, no thoughful lyrics, no soft acoustic passages, you'll only find chaos and madness. The first time I heard it, I thought to myself, "What the hell did I just listen to?" It takes time for an album to grow, and this one did.

Now, for the music. This album sounds like it could have been the alternate soundtrack to Looney Tunes (an excerpt is featured in the final track). Most tracks are about 1 minute in length, and feature either bizarre sound effects, extreme metal guitar, or bizarre vocals from Mike Patton. The variety in such sounds is really nice, too. This album truly is not for the faint of heart. My favorite track is the final one, mainly for the Looney Tunes ending.

What they were thinking when they made this, I do not know. But all I can say is, don't listen to this if you are the faint of heart, or are not comfortable listening to off the wall music. I, for one, enjoyed the album to some extent. 3/5.
