This album wins the award for strangest industrial release of the year. Take acoustic western guitars and include them with funky electronic sounds, bass, synths and deep accented mellow talking male vocals and you basically get the music delivered here. If anything this is unique. I do give the band credit for that. However, it sounds so silly that it can't be taken seriously. The songs found here are just plain weird. This is some of the strangest music that I have ever heard before. It's like a parody or a joke. You can't keep a straight face when you listen to it. This works for the first few songs, but after a while it grows old. The joke wears off and you are basically left with just odd music that is not very appealing. The songs do get repetitive and rather annoying quickly. Everything plays at a slow and drab pace. The only thing really going for this album is that it's unique. other than that, it's just not that good. I really don't know the time or place that someone would listen to an album such as this. It's actually very difficult to sit through. If you want something really different in the industrial realm, this is it. However, this might just be too different for you. I know that it is for me. But I'm sure there are people out there that will enjoy what this album has to offer them.

The songs found here are boring. Every song sounds exactly the same. A constant repetitive beat plays and some slow paced distorted male vocals talk over it. The music is very techno, but not catchy at all. It's very generic. The vocals don't really seem like part of the songs. It's as if the music was already created, and the vocals were just placed over it. If you're a fan of techno music you might like this album. Otherwise, you probably won't.
