    interesting but needs some work

    Definately a good approach now that we're all sick of the new metal sound that everyone seems to have these days but i think that the new style needs some tweaking. Its kind of choppy and i don't think it flows as well as their early albums. Not bad though and its good that somebody is trying new things.

    Definately a follow-up to White Pony

    When i first bought this album, i listened through it in one sitting and was dissapointed at first. But after a few listens, it actually started to grow on me. the main problem with the album is that it sounds sort of like they put a lot of time and effort into the first three tracks, then just sort of slapped some stuff together for the last half of the album. I found this dissapointing because White Pony was a very good album. This album sounded almost as though it was just trying to repeat the format of White Pony all over again. Hexagram: a good opening track in which Chino spends most of the time screaming. But don't let that fool you because he doesn't particularly sound angry. This is unlike any song i have heard before and is very unique. you'd probably have to be open minded about it to enjoy it. Needles and Pins: Probably the best track of the CD with an overwhelmingly unique melody for the chorus and cryptic lyrics that will make you listen to it repeatedly to try to figure out what it all means. Minerva: first single and one of the best songs. It doesn't stray too far away from their works on previous albums, but very good nonetheless. Good Morning Beautiful: much too sappy during the versus. It starts off like a Smashing Pumpkins song. Deathblow: an astonishingly depressing song with twangy guitars and Chino singing full of sorrow. Good despite how much of a downer it is. When Girls telephone Boys: a rather odd track where Chino spends most of his time screaming with his pissed-and-demon-possessed voice that he has used in such songs as Korea off White Pony. (And if you read the lyrics, it even sounds like a musical sequal to the song Street Carp). Battle Axe: Sort of boring and slow. this is when the album starts to drop of drastically. it's probably the best of the worst. Lucky you: Worst song on the cd. it sounds like an erotic techno song they should be playing in a night club. Bloody Cape: Heavy guitar hooks with melodic vocals. It's short, sweet, and enjoyable, even though the lyrics don't really match the "angry" sound of it. Annivarsary of an Uninteresting Event: It's soft, extremely slow, with piano music. It's like something they would play at a wedding reception. Not a bad song, but it doesn't quite fit. Moana: kind of a dissapointing end to the album. it's not a bad song by itself, but it's nowhere near the epic closing track of White Pony, Pink Maggit. The reason i gave it three stars was because the songs don't really flow together to make the sound of an album as one whole. The songs are very expiremental, and they took a lot of risks. There are very good songs, then there are ones that drop off and dissapoint. For how long it took for them to come out with another album, only a few of the songs are worth it.
