    Never lets you settle, rarely are 2 tracks in succession similar to one another. The Austin chronicle called it "Jagged Psych-Punk" and whilst I usually hate people coining their own terms for music, that is a spot-on description of ultra-prolific Thee Oh Sees' music. Definitely worth a purchase, as with all of their albums.

    This John Dwyer-led, San Francisco collective's jagged psych-punk has always been ear catching, but this ups the ante.

    Carrion Crawler/The Dream captures the band in psychedelic bulldozer mode instead, delivering ten blistering cuts at a furious pace.

    The music is equally scattered, slapdash, and frantic. It's also brilliant.
