4 stars This is just a great math metal/rock album.

This being their second, and way better than their first, this album saw the band propell in to a new level of craziness.

With a crazy instrumenta section, werid lyrics and even funnier song titles, this album had me hooked from start to finish.

I did criticise these guys when I first heard them, but I regret doing so now.

They are a wee bit emo, with the slightly whiney vocals, but it's more of a matter of opinion, cause these guys were out when emo was only being birthed as a concept.

1. I Just Got This Symphony Goin - Amazing intro. One fantastic song. The vocals are amazing. Just kick ass, straight in your face. 10/10

2. Act 1, Scene 1 - Great chorus and arrangement of vocals. Instrumental sections are flawless, as usual. the lyrics are also hilarious. 9/10

3. F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X. - One of their best chorus'. Just a fantastic song. 10/10

4. "You Got A Death Wish, Johnny Truant?" - Crazy as hell, but it flows perfectly.9/10

5. Mouths Like A Sidewinder Missile - Love the screams at the start. Great chorus. The instrumental section really shows how tight this band was. 9/10

6. The Hol[ ]y Tape - Pretty freaky. A hel'lot of influences in one song. 8/10

7. Laces Out, Dan - Thomas' vocals in this song are just mental. The music is also very derranged. 8/10

8. We Better Learn How To Hotwire A Uterus - Love the title. The lyrics are also very funny. The instrumental section is crackers. 10/10

9. Whacko Jacko Steals The Elephant Man's Bones - The lyrics have nothing to do with the title. Still a pretty kick ass and mental song. The instrumental is pretty freaky. The vocals really are incredible. 9/10

10. Tom Waits - The noisy parts are pretty cool. Again the vocals are amazing. 9/10

11. Macaulay McCulkin - Again the title is hilarious (that's not even how you spell his name, even though Michael did call him Mac, because of Mike's anniversary they repeated his home video's show, which was pretty funny...woops back to the music).The instrumental section is pretty funny, sounds a wee bit like the Pink Panther. Quite experimental and very cool. 9/10

CONCLUSION: This was a really enjoyable listening experience, and I recomend this album to everyone, even you Jesus!
