  • Summary: The first release from the D.C. band since they became the first group signed to Marilyn Manson's Posthuman Records. Includes a cover of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby."

    Godhead take this '80's obsession one step further, crafting a sound so hypnotically synthetic it makes Heaven 17 sound like Robert Johnson. [Feb 2001, p.94]
  2. There's not much sonic discovery or eviscerating emotion here to elevate godhead outside the Pro-Tools realm of co-headlining tours with Stabbing Westward. [#151, p.82]
  3. Godhead's stash of smart musical touches proves they're more than Manson's Mini-Me.
  4. Where Marilyn Manson is dark and introspective, Godhead are much more outgoing.
  5. 2000 Years is a guitar-ripping dissertation --only it's sealed inside a musical envelope that's addressed to the likes of Adam and Eve.
  6. Like a legion of goths before them, singer Jason Miller and Manson have many of the same obsessions: the death of God, suicide, the return of God, the slow descent into hell and icky piles of dirt. In Godhead's case, all of that terrain is covered in just the album's opening track, the NIN-meets-New Order new wave rocker "The Reckoning."

    Most of the songs on 2000 Years of Human Error feature the now clichéd mix of distorted vocals, loud guitars, and electro rhythms, and, as a result, the band sounds too much like its brethren to be distinctive.

    Awesome lyrics AND music, from a very talented group. Jason Miller's voice is hypnotic and sexy. Looking forward to a live show!

    Yet another fabulous album from a fabulous band. Lets hope the next release is just as great as this!

    2000 Years of Human Error is a monumental disappointment in comparison to their past work. That's just the thing, you can tell that it wasn't their work, but instead a product of the nuance and lending of industry flop, Marilyn Manson. If you want to hear what gODHEAD is really all about, pick up Nothingness, or Power Tool Stigmata. If there is one band out there that is deserving of the proper nurturing a qualified producer can give, it is gODHEAD. Expand

    I'm growing to love this album although it's somewhat sterile production values temper the bite of what is an otherwise very strong collection of varied and interesting songs with no obvious fillers and a consistantly high quality delivery throughout. A keeper. Collapse
