    they haven't released a good album since piece of cake. reverting back to sub po records, i had hope.think again. this album is boring. these guys are all washed up. if you're looking for some real rock, pick up gluecifers' new album 'basement apes'. that's what it's all about.

  1. The band sounds as dense and murky as ever, although it has added a few free-jazz strokes on some tracks.
  2. Since We’ve Become Translucent’s greatest flaw -- its dumbed-downedness -- becomes apparent and sad as the album’s first half goes on.
  3. Since We've Become Translucent does an almost unimaginably good job of adding heft, weight and, god I hate to say it, maturity to the garage idiom.
