Prog Reviewer
2 stars The second of the 2007 amalgamations by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, this time with spoken word artist Lydia Lunch. The music is better than the preceding EP, but the vocals are not. Damo Suzuki provided a humorous break from the typical work by Omar & co. that, while not always pleasureable, don't really take over and detract heavily from the music, which besides was pretty monotonous without him. Lydia Lunch's vocals are dark and commanding, but I don't particularly care what she has to say here. The boys are providing more of an atypical backdrop for her thoughts and messages. Now, I have not heard anything else she has done - spoken word by itself is not something that interests me at all - but I don't think this is the kind of stuff she normally does. Considering it is a spoken word album, it is pretty cool, but I'm not going to be listening to it ever again. Believe me, I don't descriminate based on sound alone; it's not really captivating. Definitely not essential, but it is a fresh idea. Use your own discretion here.
