4 stars This is a really interesting EP. Dillinger Escape Plan have always seemed like a band Mike Patton would have been interested in, and so this is a great collaboration. I love the insane time signature changes, obscurity and unsurity on these tracks, as it makes it exciting and interesting. The best tracks are "Hollywood Squares" and "When Good Dogs Do Bad Things". They represnt some great metal, prog and avante garde elements. The cover of Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy" is quite random, yet interesting and perhaps comical. DEP and Patton are two artists who were made to collaborate and they certainly didn't waste their opportunity to work together. Shame a full studio album wasn't created, but this is still a very good piece of work, and probably the best highlight in DEP's discography!

I would advise caution when first listening to this album as it certainly is not a standard metal album. This one will go down well with fans of Fantomas and Mr Bungle.
