An interesting mixture of straightforward hardcore punk, Zappa-style left turns into orchestrated noise, and a thoroughly snotty sense of humor, Alice Donut throw in some unexpectedly catchy elements as well: "Testosterone Gone Wild" is a full-on pop song, complete with guitar hooks and backing vocals on the chorus, and "Sky of Bones" has an unexpected resemblance to Redd Kross' psych-punk era.
