Album Review
Andy S
Reviewed 2010-03-20 
Dark and snarling hard rock from Australia. Really impressive back-country electric guitar. Think a bleaker Nirvana or Mudhoney with a heavy out-west (or Outback, rather) slant. RIYL: Dead Confederate, The Dead Weather, Black Diamond Heavies. My picks: 5, 7, FCC: 3, 6, 8, 9, 10 –Andy

1 - Great transistor radio guitar sound; big overpowering entrance; twangy and ominous, with pounding drums
2 - Grunge guitar part and indignant, don't-give-a-fuck punk vocals
3 - FCC: "shit", "fucked"; in true Nirvana style, growling bass riff with mellow vocals that fly into a rage on the choruses
4 - Grabbing guitar/drum groove; real surly vocals
5 - Mid-tempo, with long intro full of nice guitar work
6 - FCC: "fuckin"; slow, plodding, and scary, with psychotic low vocals and screeching guitar accents; kind of 4/4 for a "Waltz" but has that feel
7 - Whoa - 9/4 time murder ballad. Super rockin, super psychotic. Intense stuff.
8 - FCC: "fuckin"; slow, lots of feedback and screeches, strained vocals drowned in huge guitar
9 - FCC: "fucked"; arresting opening with piano, shaker, vocals; nightmare lyrics, glass sound effects
10 - FCC: "fuckin"; slow and pounding, bleak and threatening, cathartic shouting toward the end
