All Music Guide - Jack Rabid
This is a bit of a weird one. Ex-Sugar bassist David Barbe and his Buzz Hungry mate Brooks Carter recorded this the real Harvey Milk was murdered many years ago, but it's hard to say just what this is. Thick, slow, drunken blasts of grunge kind of come and go without much form or structure, and occasionally a moaning voice -- like the ghost of Marley haunting Scrooge -- kind of rumbles and belches its way in the background. I repeat, what is this?

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
A murky collision of sludge metal and noise rock, Harvey Milk's debut full-length, My Love Is Higher Than Your Assessment of What My Love Could Be, is a revolution in art metal. Coming out of Athens, Georgia around the same time that Elephant 6 bands like the Apples in Stereo and the Olivia Tremor Control were starting to put out music, the album feels like a direct response to the town's indie rock/pop pedigree. Gnarled and muscular, songs like "All the Live Long Day," which features a sledgehammer hitting an anvil as a part of its instrumentation, heave along with little concern for the listener's well-being. For all of its shuddering violence, however, the album also has moments of genuine beauty and tenderness, with singer and guitarist Creston Spiers' bellowing shout tamed into something sweet and fragile on "My Father's Life's Work." My Love Is Higher Than Your Assessment of What My Love Could Be might be the band's most difficult work, but those with the fortitude to stick it out will find it to be a rewarding debut from one of underground metal's most innovative bands.

    HM is underappreciated...buy it and experience the bliss!

    Their first full-length album and imo their 2nd best. Well worth your cash to buy. It seems like you either love HM or just don't get their music. Most people don't, but those who do really love this band - like me. If you're going to take a chance on them, buy 'Courtesy and Goodwill...' first. If you don't like that album, chances are you won't like most of their stuff.
