Dahlia Seed was one of the few bands who captured the personal sentiment of anger while maintaining a tranquil tone. Just when Tracy Wilson's vocals comfortably linger in a peaceful presence, however, a gruff burst of angst erupts out of nowhere. Please Excuse All the Blood captures all of the loose ends that Dahlia Seed scattered around before their 1996 breakup. Featuring all of the rare, hard-to-find, and unreleased tracks that were spread throughout their four-year tenure, the Seed's moody setting of genuine emotion and poetic honesty remains. Although not as essential as their 1995 album Survived By, Please Excuse All the Blood is a pleasant ending to one of the most seminal bands who were noticed by only a few hundred people while they were still around. That and their toned-down cover of Voivod's "Missing Sequences" shows that they also had a sense of humor.
