Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2011-09-25 
Twisted, loose, messed-up recordings and experiments using acoustic and electric instruments played improperly and atonally. Old Time Relijun bludgeoned on the head with a shovel and stuck in some backwoods folk-psych nightmare. All tracks strange, slow, and completely worth your time. What are song structures anyway? No FCCs - the man sounds like a National Geographic discovery from the Amazon more than an English speaker.
Disc I:
1. Bent light guitar plays vague tune with clattery, messy percussion; desperate circus non-human vocals. (5:32)
*2. Banjo pluck and strange rhythmic beatbox distortion/droning voice. (5:30)
3. Loose banjo strikes and percussion, settles on a strident rhythm and Special Olympian vocal gurgly stylings. (6:14)
*4. Organ from some Italian boardwalk criminal and persistent tape loop percussion layers. Later some dense guitar distortion comes in waves. (6:11)
5. Uncomfortable timbre to the percussion, dissonant bendy ukelele lead, tuned percussion rattling and freaky vocals. (6:13)
6. Growly, creepy gravelly voice, slow string pluck, backwater bayou tune by a homeless wolfman illicit chronic inhaler. (6:01)
7. Electric guitar looped dark piercing, some Eastern acoustic string patterns, same intelligible hobo snarl in first half, bass drump bump for second half and then some cash-register toy sounds as well. (11:53)
8. Screechy distorted vocals giving a play-by-play commentary of the turf war between our hero jungle man, pounding toms, and hyenas. Upbeat. (5:29)
*9. Bubbly plucky; picks up with simple tribal percussion, sharp harsh atmospherics and instrument abuse. (8:01)
10. Dense dark guitar sustained to an uneasy, cannibal sacrificial drone with hillbilly acoustic meandering and minimalist ringing percussion. (11:07)

Disc II:
1. Vocals / weirdo digital percussion, then gets noisy, messy, and heavy. (6:20)
*2. Massively distorted stop/start looped strum chaos with some digital bleeping. (6:21)
3. Slow fade in, droney harsher distorto meandering, looped feel, noise track. (6:28)
4. Back to bizarre, crawling acoustic guitar meander. (6:10)
*5. Ugly Tom Waits twisted garbage can twang hobo jaunt with double-tracked, strained vocals. (6:23)
*6. Tribal percussion complexity with distant, mentally challenged talk/vocals. (6:10)
7. Simple, steady slow rhythm, growled, barked vocals, no hooks to be found here, manipulated bird whistling in last minute and a half. (6:24)
8. Basic guitar pattern and seeping, creeping atmospherics/digital noise with some buzzing, repetitive vocals used rhythmically. (6:49)
