Prog Reviewer
2 stars The band with the world's most misplaced rhythm section strike again and manage to waste upwards of 75 minutes of their - and your - time. The songs are a little longer but the alternate rock influences are omnipresent and overpowering aside from during the transitive link pieces on the album which this reviewer finds preferable to the songs.

Note that "Third Eye" is quite narcotic while both "Hooker with a Penis" and "Forty Six & Two" are good rock anthems, but this album is simply too catchy to be deep, not powerful enough in its riffing to be metal and not concise enough in its message to be philosophically memorable.
