Worst Trophy Scars album ever. I don't know what the hell happened to Jerry's voice, but it sounds terrible. The song compositions are not as complex as the past albums, and the tone isn't dripping with snide sarcasm. Could have easily passed as another band listening to the albums side by side.
disagree with pretty much everything you said. i love this.
Yes of corse you can enjoy both with out ranking them, That said Alphabet alphabets was 10 x better then this album, alot of the songs sound too similar. I am disapointed however the album is still a good listen and I will repeat. Which is far more than I can say about thursdays latest release. So thank you trophy scars for not letting me down as much as thursday has. It has come to my attention lately these days that this is how i judge bands. By who has let me down, the least. (I miss northstar)
haha you shot everyone's comment down, and agreed with mine
well, it's said in the review that jerry's voice is an acquired taste-- and a couple of them are just complaining about that.. others are saying they've gone downhill musically/lyrically, which is totally untrue, they just haven't let the music grow on them yet.
... and i downloaded bone machine tonight, and i think it's my favorite tom waits record.
This so far is the best album to come out in 2009. I can't stop listening to it. Musically, this album destroys anything its even comparable to. It's the most lyrically intense of any Trophy Scars. Fuck yeah.
