    Another boring, pseudo-avant piece of crap by Patton. He's been eating his own tail since...well Disco Volante? Or at least Director's Cut. This guy doesn't progresst; he keeps on rehashing older ideas & the only change is putting them in ridiculous forms - either very short or 70-minute pieces. He's holding too many projects and as a result he loses his cred as an Another boring, pseudo-avant piece of crap by Patton. He's been eating his own tail since...well Disco Volante?

  1. Although this LP is sequenced into tiny fragments of varying speeds of mood, the LP feels like one super-caffeine express fairground ride.
  2. 'Suspended Animation' is less a compendium of songs and more a splurging, raging, raping jazz metal fusion machine, weaving in samples, gong noises and assorted cartoon horror.
  3. A fascinating blend of the macabre and the lighthearted, something that will appeal to anyone who appreciates the darker side of both comedy and music.
