Ugly/Heartless

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Although you'd never know it by the mainstream rock artists of the early 21st century, good old-fashioned noise was bubbling over in the underground, as evidenced by such bands as Lightning Bolt and the Dillinger Escape Plan. Another outfit that joined the pack around this time was Houston's the Jonbenet.
