3 stars I was really surprised at how different this record is with the next one "El Cielo". I mean even the vocals sound so different. They are intense to screaming on this one, while on "El Cielo" they are so smooth, so appealing. Funny thing is I actually like both styles, i'm drawn to both. What a transformation though ! DREDG is what i would have called an Alternative band on this one. I wouldn't refer to them as Alternative now though, not at all. This was the first studio album by DREDG, and I like it.

"Lechium" is a great song, the guitar at the 4 minute mark sounds so cool, it's hard to describe. Song 5 has a nice groove to it, with vocals that are off in the distance. "Penguins In The Desert" really rocks with heavy guitar riffs and intense vocals that switch to mellow then back to hard. The instumental song that follows is atmospheric with a hypnotizing beat. "Yatahaze" is another highlight for me. An earnest song with aggressive vocals.

A nice debut from DREDG.
