    I love this album. It's amazing. It's a really heavy album, so maybe that's why so many people don't like it. It's incredibly dense for an album consisting of only a bass guitar and drums. A lot of people just see it as just noise, and it pretty much is, but it is perfectly crafted noise. It's standout songs are 2 Morro Morro Land, Captain Caveman, Magic Mountain, Dead Cowboy, and BizarroI love this album. It's amazing.

  1. This is a great record, if it is a record.
  2. At its most chaotic, Hypermagic Mountain could tear open a wormhole into Comets on Fire's Blue Cathedral.
  3. Essentially, the Brians don't really need to innovate that much anymore and instead are just fine-tuning their craft in glorious ways.
