  • Summary: The California metal band started by Pinback's Rob Crow releases its second album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. They display a loose, gritty feel that ought to please metal fans as well as those who still think this is Crow’s version of Spinal Tap.
  2. It's a fantastic album, and one of the standout metal records of the year; it's just too bad that it's kind of embarrassing to admit that you're a fan.
  3. It avoids the sophomore slump by mixing a little meloody in with the morose--sort of like a down-tuned Pinback for stoners. [Apr 2009, p.108]
  4. Come With Me If You Want to Live never relents under the weight of its side-project status, nor does it pale significantly in comparison to more “serious” metal acts, nor is it in any way a piss-take.
  5. Come With Me If You Want To Live continues the legacy of muted, foggy metal GC began on their 2005 debut "Bagged and Boarded." There’s no question these dull riffs and sludgy rhythms are being played by an indie rocker who has an album entitled "Nautical Antiques" to his credit.

    Shards of Come With Me suggest Crow has more to offer the metal gods than the intermittently awesome sludgefests served up here.
