3 stars Non stop, no break, out of breath, crazy.

The Dillinger Escape Plan is well known for being the most obviously recognizable "mathcore" band: broken down, it's absolute insanity. Crazy riffs played at insane speed backed by insane rhythms with eccentric vocals, melodies, and just about everything else insane in the music. Farewell, Mona Lisa is no different. The band has no trouble dishing out numerous time signature and tempo changes, intense chord progressions, and just an overall sense of insanity. And when I say time changes, this isn't your average 4/4 to 3/4, this is dabbling in the x/16 to x/32 to x/8 to something else ridiculous within only a few second. Musically,The track includes a highly avant-garde feel to it, fusing a lot more jazz influence into the music than usual "plain ol' metal". Of course the crazy up and down the neck shredding is present, with plenty of tasteful part changes. Overall, the track is a great track. 3 stars.
