4 stars lets go here by starters this is the funniest cd ive ever heard in my life.

full of mroe time switches then your mamas pancakes make bananas.

1st off this cd starts off with the track

Aquanet-hilarious modem dialing up wacky phone messages awesome metal to rock intricate timeings one thinks of dialing california in 7/8 but dont be fooled an real good track by all costs.

just an little bit- an ok song an little baiscer not much to comment on this track around 5 mins.

Words for Nerds-the dang funniest song ive heard in my life the intro is like an dumb nerd reading the descripions of cpu terms only to find out its cpu. full of crimsonish melodies and rhythms.

Melissas firend-an pain of salvation esque song the intro is funny hitting on bill gates as usual tells u one thing microsoft isnt for everyone. prob main reason is gildenlow is singing on this track. reformat the hard rive go get the shotgun im gonna blow the pc away come on folks this isnt your norm everyday prog metal record.

Read me-here we are entertained by beethoven flight of the bumblebbe in opus cavantra 4/98 time signature only to be reminded of an yngwie malmsteen on steroids. nice dream theater esqueish song. the concept pursues about communication products and how stupid people are not to know them. awesoem guitar work turns from yngwie wanna be to dt instrumedley meets steve morse.

Mulit-Masking-here we start off with an backwords message like your in zappas grave and cant escape but more intensifying gothic sound to the intro of this. sounds like russia coding with soviet secret code on this song for the first 3 mins to tell us these guys r high on zappa for sure great piano layers then switches to guitar.

im telling u dream theater then zappa these guys cant make up there mind then we r brought to the vocal section which u hear the band chain like tendecies. man this is the coolest cd ever and were only on track 6.

this is my 2nd fave on this alblum great track all together. one mroe thign if u ever wondered what zappa morse and petrucci and rudess would sound like all otgether this song best describes it. total madness.

Bass solo is short but sweet jazz fusion in metal nice intricately profounding.

In Memory of-starts of with nice acoustic guitar inrto for the first min then the electric overlayer the acoustic then drums come in vocally pursues the metal again. nice weird vocals on this track sounds like high savatage vocal bit criss olivia is heard an little bit and jordan rudess synth is the background.

then the hammerring bass guitar is all over this track and goes into an complex time solo between the intruemtns from prog to jazz fusion bass lien then back to prog awesome shifting makes this tune quite orignal weather report and liquid tension experiment all in one track. bass on here is tony levin sounding real good.

an chaotic realization of nothing-song tell u it all chaos madness and power i would call this more of lte vein then the metal it was in the beginning of the cd. some the nicest musicanship ever on this alblum and song alone. this is not oyur normal just graduated berklee professors band. all sudden u do realize the music is shifting to what u thought as metal to glorious liquid tension experiment 2. this is the instrumental track of all time prog history.

i would love to see this song performed live by these guys or any one dareing to step up to the plate ill tell u one thing this band wont be asked permission to be covered unless its dream theater.

now into the 6 min mark were back to vocals and shift off to heavy guitar crunching i think i have headache already one that feels so good that i didnt have to go to bar to get almost inspireing as gedy lees favorite headache u know what i mean.

all nice pretty the nback to grotesque encore such honor to your ears when u get odne with this album ur gonna say at last no more running from law enforcement this cd is the pot supply for years to come cuz by now i feel like im high as ever from thus cd.

The Cereal Mouse-the last wacko trakc on this record sounds like macko ringo the clown meets monty python in farm house for 80 seconds this ends the opus of all time heaven.

now kids this is for grown ups only contents r full of hangovers highs and packs of stuff mroe than an saridne can.

which ocmes to my conclusion of pink floyds dsotm album u play with the wizard of oz.

this album u play to the texas chainsaw masscare so wicked cool an hoor flick while playing this equals on huge laugh and entertainment ull think the tv is an mushroom for its over.

this reivew is an little over sarcastically out of place little but man i had fun listenign to this cd and this should inspire u to buy it also.

an must have cd in any collection of druggie music.
