4 stars I was really perplexed when I first heard this album. I was expecting something different from the album cover, not that a bunch of creepy smiling old dudes can't "rock" this hard, if you could even classify this as rock. It's really beyond anything else I've heard. When the intro song "eden of the air" ended, I was really confused because its almost like Flogging Molly meets Frank Zappa.... I know, impossible right!

What is really phenomenal about this album is that it is like mutated post-punk mixed with the sensibility and technical prowess of a math-rock band, like Don Caballero, only not so post-rock. The rhythms are so hard to keep track of for a band that produced material that sound mostly like punk, but ultimately it would be unfair to call this album or the Cardiacs a punk band.

Sing To God is one of those supremely weird, and engaging albums that it put a smile on my face, but no quite as creepy as the smiles on the front cover of this album. I'm still perplexed at why I like this album so much, because it really doesn't fit in with my musical taste, but it's so bizarre that you can't "look away".

Although it is not a masterpiece of prog rock it is still an incredible album, and one that should be listened to at least once... c'mon ya know you want to.
