    Forgive me if somebody's already said this or hinted at it but... Please, PUH-LEEZE get this drummer together with Lil' Jackie White and let them bash and smash it out at the full moon together! PLEEEEZE! What's more, keep the bass player, obviously!!! That would be such sweet icing on a ferocious, beautiful CAKE! PLEEEEEZE!

    Simply amazing. Brain bubbling bass, screaming vocals that are actually good, and those bastards broke up because they got tired of each other after a few months on tour. They should be put on a tribunal, for crimes against the world of music for denying it a succinct pleasure

    This is one of the most entertaining albums I have heard all year. There are no bad songs. Everything is catchy in a strange way. Buy it. Now.

    There is nothing like this album. If you don't like it at first, listen to it again.. and again. You'll wonder why you didn't like it.. becuase you now can't live without it. Then you'll wonder why NIN and Queens aren't open for them. These guys are musical gods. They also have a good taste in shoes.

    excellent, innovative, sexy. fans of queens of the stone age should check them out, it's relative with a twist of indie and dance.

    I'm going to keep this quick: this is an experience. It effectively started a sub-genre by itself that nobody has yet been able to replicate. This is a punk rock package you deserve.

  1. Pulses with a steady, sweaty energy that's punctuated with arena-sized hooks.
  2. Give[s] Skyward In Triumph and Earth 2 a run for the title of Best Album By A Duo, ever. [Jan 2005, p.113]
  3. A danceable yet heavy album.
