Rated 3.13/5 (62.67%) (15 Votes)

This looked like the kind of thing I would like, but I was quickly disillusioned by the crappy vocal lines and stupid groove riffs. The opening song is highly annoying, with the vocalist yapping along so fast he's almost rapping. I skipped to another track in hopes it was just an anomaly, but song after song is just groove groove groove with no real melody or hooks or anything, just shitty thugging like this was still 1995. Vocalist Walter Stuefer has a decent voice, but he hardly ever stops yapping, narrating, sneering, and all that other shit vocalists waste their time on when they can't settle the fuck down and fucking sing. When he does sing, he sounds like he could sound good if he had a good melody to work with, which he doesn't. Overall this is a massively disappointing and uninspired album.
