    It's amazing how all these no name bands with no fans get great reviews. The critic's are pretty clueless when it comes to music.

    I thought it was pretty wretched, but to each their own wretched things they like. Unforgivably generic and unappealing. I forgot it was even playing several times while listening. I hope we can still be friends.

    This is, simply, awful. Like 4 monkeys in a studio who are banging on pots and pans on the label's dime. Critics who like this are too far gone from what constitutes a TUNE to ever be trusted again. Yecch.

    Well I listened to this pile of steaming hog poo and I'm not impressed at all. The only thing this cd is good for is killing that nasty spider that lived in my room. I dunno how this can be called music, it's just a bunch of random poundage and some scratching sounds. I'll give it a 1 because there were a couple decent riffs.

    Probably the worst, most unwelcome thing I've ever heard. Dudes, Karp and Led Zepellin are like garlic and chocolate: two great tastes that don't taste good together.

    No thanks guys! It's like whatsit the guy from Led Zeppelin is stubbing his toe into a megaphone in a completely different building from all these people who are all soloing at the same time. I won't rest until the world sees that this album is two out of ten material.

  1. This album just may signal the beginning of an exciting new era in rock music.
  2. Mojo
    This time [COF] have tempered their voluminous superfuzz with scenic bliss. [Oct 2004, p.101]
  3. Uninhibited and hushed in all the right places, it’s safe to say that Comets on Fire have hit their stride.
