  • 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]
  4. 66
    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.
