My legs are open and grateful, however, for how the band still fingers me with electricity, despite all of the compensation for the inevitable tirade of injected vocal clutter.

What an amazing line!

It's all about preference. I don't scoff at you for liking it, it's just a matter of if you like vocals being added or not.

I just listened again on myspace, it's actually not bad, the music is great, it's just the vocals are mixed far too loud and are extemely monotonous which kills the beauty of the music.

I wholeheartedly disagree. In poor taste and quite sordid.

I love this album.

Bit of an odd review I thought, I don't think it really said what the album really sounds like.

It's all good though, this won't be an album everyone will love!

It sounds stupid but I swear on the actual CD they don't sound as ridiculous.

The vocals are boring. Some cool riffs here and there. The album is pretty boring overall. Good call Scott.

Uh, did I not make it clear that it sounded like every other metal album I've heard? I thought I drove that point the most. How are you supposed to describe a metal album as an uninitiated listener and a thorough disapprover?

Yea, this doesn't do it for me. Ruins was excellent.
