4 stars This is just a four song EP, but quite a pack for one. Like Calculating Infinity, this one is dominated by total insanity, aggression and complex instrumentations, but there are also some fresh new elements here added by Mike Patton. He does a good job here, beside screaming and shouting he does pretty wide-area singing and stretches into some unbelieveable vocal things. DEP grows into new, more melodical dimensions on this record. These new things make the whole thing seem even more twisted than on Calculating Infinity. Hollywood Squares and When Good Dogs Do Bad Things represent the "traditional" way of DEP combined with inventive melodical elements. Pig Latin is more like a basic metal formula, but some funny vocal parts and cool chords make it special. Come To Daddy is the only shitty track. The same thing is played over and over again and it gets just so fucking boring. Besides, the song has no wonderous vocal things. But overall, I think this is the best record to start listening to DEP, because it has something to get to for people not familiar with such (progressive?) brutality as this.
