At First Listen: I thought the first track was cool, and there were a couple others that I could see myself liking, given a few more listens, but a lot of the songs seemed borderline stupid. I guess, most of all, I was hoping (and expecting) it would be more like the previous album: Exquisite Corpse.
At Second Listen: I decided to throw out all hopes and expectations. The songs jumped out at me, and intrigued me. I couldn't listen to it enough. I was in love and still am, years later.
This is one of those albums that I have to listen to every so often. It defines me to some degree.
It is very versatile, too. I can listen to it quietly while studying, or at a medium volume while driving, but the best is loudly while cooking.
Daedelus Denies The Day's Demise is an unimaginable blend of intelligence and fun. Enjoy!
