4 stars I like this more than the follow-up "Crisis In Clay". "Hunger's Teeth" is easier to digest, although make no mistake this is complex and innovative. Kumar, Kerman and Drake (sounds like a Lawyer firm doesn't it ?) make up the band here with several guests helping out including James Grigsby.

"Well...Not Chickenshit" is a fantastic opening number. It opens with keyboards as vocals and other sounds join in. Check out the vocals yelling in the background. Huge bass comes in briefly. Love how this sounds after 1 1/2 minutes. More chunky bass after 2 minutes with some steller drum work as well. I really like the dissonant guitar sounds that join in too. Killer track. "Roan" opens with what sounds like wind chimes while in the background it sounds like a volcano is going to erupt. Vocals come in then it kicks in after 1 1/2 minutes. Some excellent guitar here then it settles with vocals. "Mangate" is basically Thomas DiMuzio making electric and computer generated sounds for 3 minutes. Interesting. "Geronimo" features vocals and other sounds then it kicks in before a minute. Great sound. It settles again quickly as contrasts continue. It turns dark before 3 minutes. Powerful sound 4 1/2 minutes in. Love the bass and drums here.

"Glue" is dark with drums and bass out front. The vocals and the guitar are pretty twisted. "Opportunity Bangs" opens with a full sound with vocals. It picks up a minute in. Organ too. Killer sound here. It settles then picks back up. It ends in a haunting manner. "The Shears" is a funny tune about people who cut hair for a living. You can hear the door opening and the sound of scissors as vocals join in. "Bachelor Needle" has a strange intro then it kicks in. Vocals are processed with piano helping out. The tempo then picks up with normal vocals. "Truth, Justice, And The American Way" is dark with vocals, piano and a heavy pulsating sound. Great sound before 4 minutes then the vocals return. Amazing tune. So much going on late to end it. "Equus" features vocals, piano and eerie sounds early. It changes a minute in. Nice bass and drum work before 2 1/2 minutes. Organ follows then guitar. Female vocals after 4 minutes. "Traveler Waits For No One" is uptempo with female vocals. Some huge bass after 3 minutes.

A solid 4 star album maybe even 4.5 stars.
