This is labeled 'Gothic', but the look of the album is highly non-gothic, with two guys clowning around in the woods and the cover being a color pic of what I think is supposed to be the Manson door with the band's name written across it - I mean it literally looks like they just wrote on the photo with a red magic marker. It looks like crap, is what I'm trying to say. I am used to bands that claim 'Gothic' status to try for some darkness and mystery, this looks like it was knocked together in a weekend by people who have no idea what the word means.

The music inside is pretty much crap too. The guitar sound is muted and dull, the riffs are bland or nonexistent, and the vocals are amateurishly bad. This also sounds like it was knocked together in a weekend, maybe as a joke. I kept listening, wondering if there would be any sort of point to it, or if it would go anywhere at all, but instead it just noodles around, accomplishing little besides taking up space. They sent me this band's other CD as well, but I'm not wasting any more time with this junk. Total crap.
