This album is for the most daring prog fans. It is a fantastic journey all its own, but it is certainly not for the faint of heart. This is an album to listen to and own just to say you have. Listening to this record from start to finish is quite an accomplishment, and it gives the listener a sense of sick pride at the end ("I dont know what the hell that was, but I made it through alive..."). Surgical Sound... cannot truly be enjoyed in bits and pieces, only as a whole work, which makes it incredibly difficult to listen to, but it should be appreciated at least for the amazing artistic effort put in by Mike Patton and friends. It is a truly original work, listing influences would be redundant, with the exception of, say, Ed Wood horror movie soundtracks mixed with Slayer.

Approach this album with caution, but enjoy it once you get there.
