5 stars From the first track i knew i would love it. Probably the thing that got me hooked the most on this album was their creativity and weirdness. I was scared first time listening to this album...and i LOVED it. They use instruments unconvential to those of typical prog. They use the brick, organs, bows, aluminum, tape loops, violin, harp, harmonica, but they also use the conventional guitar bass drums vocals. From their first track Sleep is wrong i knew that this wasnt anything ordinary Avant Garde. It had its Prog Metal, Noise rock, and Avant Garde. Their feel of 4/4 over 3/4 or so i felt, is just amazing, they meet up perfectly. and certainly the ending to Sleep is Wrong is one to scare. The Donkey-Headed Adversary of Humanity Opens the Discussion is probably my favorite track on the album. I feel slight inspiration and influence from John Cage, serial music, and such. Definetly an eye opener. The most "mainstream" track of the album is Bring Back the Apocalypse. This is where the Prog Metal aspect comes in rather strongly. Thius is a 5/5 album. Just pure excellence in Avant Garde music. Truly a must have
