  1. It's a sprawling, psychedelic masterwork, rife with knotty tangles of discordance and serpentine riffs.

    This album smokes. Inventive guitar playing and great drums. It is amazing that 12 years has passed since their last release. Polvo This album smokes. Inventive guitar playing and great drums. It is amazing that 12 years has passed since their last release. Polvo hasn't missed a beat and I hope this album earns them a whole new legion of fans. "Beggar's Bowl" is a super track. Highly recommended. Full Review »

    This is an awesome return from one of the most cruelly underrated bands from the 90's. Thundering and Beautiful.
