by no means are the lyrics about "scoring female genitalia" done with on this albm. white mystery is possibly their most blatant song of that sort.

One of my favorite albums. Am I the only one that thinks of the book Frankenstein when listening to this CD?

Math tinged indie rock? Circa Survive? Actually experimental? I am intrigued. Will check out.

I love this album. One of my favourites.

Having said that, 9.25 for vocals? Jake Snider has a horrible voice with pretty much no range or emotion.

I love his vocals on this album. They're so leveled and yes, emotionless, but I think that's what really makes me love them when it's paired with the lyrics.

Yes, that comment in the review is way off base. This album oozes sex in the music and in the lyrics.

I'm interested to see where they take the next album.

How are those lyrics cheesy? I just re-read it and realized that.

What I meant was that where on their other albums va-jay-jay was a prime lyrical aim, now it is not so.

I absolutely hate the new lyrics. I believe they are oversimplification to the Nth degree. But I'm a fan of metaphors strewn throughout lyrics moreso than anything.
