5 stars A pearl!

Yes a pearl, but a jagged one. Excavations of the Mind is a brillant album, full of memorable melodies that make you want to press replay again and again...and again. They are fantastic at what they are doing: King Crimson-meets-Beardfish-mating-with-Violent District and -Tiles sang by a very friendly Tom Luchies. Ooh what to say? Even Camel gets a bit in the title song! Oh and congratulations on staying simple in the whole process, giving the proof you don't have to give a 78 minutes album to score high. Thank you guys, much appreciated.

I got hooked at the first listen. The first. It doesn't happen too often in my case, take that as a good sign. But every rose has it's thorn (thank you Brett Michaels for such prophetic words) : the production is making my bowels churn. Simply said, the sound's so compressed it's like listening a copy on a Maxell cassette from 1994. Oh Lord, those crash cymbals! And the hi-hat sound! Aargh.

I'm still giving 5 stars on this cookie despite the horrible compressed sound, this is HOW GOOD this album is.

Definitely out of nowhere and slapping you twice, one of my favorite albums of all time.
