RINGING EARS- VOLUNTEERS
Gleefully I prised the CD from it's gory, frantic case. As the folded lyric sheet, with a big edition of the cover art fell into my lap, I must admit I got a little exited. I put the CD in my player and sat back to let the furious rant wash over me.
The opening track starts with a punch, that continues to punch through the remainder of the album. The next track starts more subtly, but then descends into the fore-mentioned madness. The third track, Running In Fucking Terror, is the fastest track, and perfectly holds the madness that the name suggests, everything seems to pump furiously in an attempt to get away from some hidden demons (or something like that). Hahahahaha strikes me as an odd name for a song, but it becomes clear when the tortured half cackled, half screamed hahahahaha wails at you part way through. This album does not stop, but relentlessly ploughs along, and you are taken with it on a mystical trip through the creators tortured mind, and conscience.
Whether you like it or not, it is rather moving.
Lyrically my favourite song is Ode To Jay, as it holds brilliant lyrical gems (of hopeful irony), e.g. Meat is good for the environment, and, The chemicals in meat are good for you.
