never thought of it before reading this but a dirge-esque outro would really complete this album. but on to what i think of this. i find myself truely amazed that i am loving an album that is so "dub fed" at points. i tend to stay away from this sound but the mad caddies, always creative in their sound, manage to pull it off without lulling the listener into a daze of boredom. I love the growth that this band has undergone and this album is delightfully off the beaten trail without sounding like a sound mush. i do however find myself wishing for a little more of the badass caddies that i am used to on tracks like "riot" and "preppie girl", but i am aware that a track like that would be a terrible, fragmented edition to this album. massive accomplishment. the mad caddies rock my life. and yes, "the beggining of this cd is f'en sick". tired bones is monumental.
p.s. i have loved all of the stuff by the caddies so the review saying that it was good for them to finally produce a good cd broke my heart a little but overall fantastic review
