  • Summary: The Sacramento duo has transformed into a full five-piece band, fronted by new singer Aaron Ross, for this new LP.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 13
  2. Negative: 1 out of 13
  1. Imagine The Mars Volta's swollen red super-giant bursting beyond the constraints of mass and time and finally contracting to an all encompassing black-hole, sucking in Lightning Bolt’s heaviest riffs and The Boredoms’ most intense drum work after hurtling them to ‘n’ fro against all manner of cosmic debris.
  2. An album that is as fiercely imaginative as any the Sacramento-based group has released before.
  3. [It] has a charm that transcends your typical noise-splunk band. [Mar 2007, p.145]

    Hella's old guard are likely to be wicked pissed.
  5. 60
    Over time, vocalist Aaron Ross stands out as the weak link, his voice merely shrill and average. [Apr 2007, p.102]
  6. Hella is stuck in the realm of Yowie -- playing with excellent ideas, but too stuck on defining themselves with an all too familiar genre.
  7. The group's sound is, at times, difficult to simply listen to, so it comes as no surprise that expanding upon it in such a drastic way would produce several miscues.

    I'm sure this album will get plenty of bad reviews, just because the reviewers can't handle the music. I think this is their best work yet. The inclusion of three extra musicians has expanded their sound with the music becoming more accesible while at the same time being more inaccesible than ever. There's an abundance of breaks, licks, weird rhythms and interesting melodies. The songs are really, really catchy but in a way that you'll only consider accesible when you into really weird and complex music. Ofcourse Spin is gonna hate it! Those guys think Fall Out Boy's new album is "creative"! Haha.. this is the first great album of 2007 and almost a genre unto its own. Expand
