Drama goth. Carnivalesque fun for the self-identified outcast clique. All good.

1.starts w/low drone, growls, then ¾ time underground preaching w/subtle bells and chorus, with dramatic pounding bits. Tracks runs into next.
2.prog guitar wankery, fast singing & drumming. Prog-metal
3.Vocal diva, pommels. Then dissonance and growled vox join.
4.continues from 3, calmer & wordless vocals until last minute, sounds tiring
5.beginning is slower flies, bass, then dramatic pounding, calms to nature sounds
6.continues outdoor from 5, sneaks into some shorter pounding bits
7.Instrumental, insect drum circle
8.prog, mostly instrumental, runs into next track
9.intro builds- wood clacks & fem singing to prog drama, to homeless babble parody, novelty anti-ode to cockroaches.
12.silent until 15 seconds into it, fades to outdoor & talking, ends at t-3:15,
birdsounds at t-1:55 with a little human groaning at end
