3.0 out of 5 stars Serviceable but not enough Jan. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is loud indie rock background music. Its fine for cleaning your house to but probably not something to sit down and listen to closely.
The drummer seems to be much more advanced then his bandmates and does a lot of interesting things on the recording. However, this does not make up for the lack of good musical decisionmaking shown by the singer. While yelling is a viable and valid choice for vocalists (See At the Drive In, Rage Against the Machine), the vocalist here manages to yell in a monotone; something I previously thought impossible. He also has an irritating habit of emphasizing the last word in sentences. The final song ,"Sigh Your Children", on the album downplays his weaknesses and is the most successful song on the recording.
The album is not terrible but does nothing to interest me in this band's previous or subsequent recordings ,so in that sense, it was a failure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good "Mood" Album Jan. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Trail of Dead are one of my favorite bands, and I can't say that I've heard anything bad that has their name on it. This, their second album, sounds less polished than "Source Tags + Codes" yet remains in the vein of gorgeously constructed and well thought out indie rock. Aside from the key rockin' tracks which make up about half the album; there are these great, what I like to call, "darker" pieces of music; these songs greatly add to the overall strange mood of this album. Most of my favorite songs off of this, in fact, are some of these departures from your average indie-rock fodder, including "Children of Hydra's Teeth", "Aged Dolls", and "Day the Sky Turned Blue". Altogether this is a great album that closely rivals it's more recent accomplice "Source Tags + Codes". This band has yet to fail in impressing me, and I definitely think this is worth a listen if you appreciate an album that you can sink your teeth into.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Mistakes, No regrets... Oct. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
these guys are pushing the envelope as far as it can possibly go. they have come out with an album which is totally flawless. they have struck the perfect balance between the loud/quiet dynamic, whilst still maintaining as much atmosphere as there Scottish friends Mogwai ever achieved.
standout thrash tracks such as "Totally Natural" and "A Perfect Teenhood" make you wanna go nuts, whilst the gentler "Clair de Lune" and "Sigh Your Children" both wrap you up in their melancholy magnificence just as effectively.
the album plateaus with the epic "Aged Dolls", an amazing piece which uses suppression and release to bring you up, down, up, then down a bit more, and then kind of leaves you hanging somewhere in between the two extremes.
peppered thruout the album are short 1 or 2 minute "intermissions" of bizarre drumloops and guitar melodies, which are comprised of equally bizarre names- "Children of the Hydras Teeth", "The Day the Air Turned Blue" for example.
i cant say enough how good this album is. definetely one of my favourite albums of all time, and an album which deserves to be remembered all thruout time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing emo-core Aug. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
........And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead are a strong flash in a current dead-pan of indie rock. Showing obvious influences in different aspects of Sonic Youth, Radiohead, Fugazi, Nirvana all wrapped in a trance inducing sound that is a step ahead of other underground acts of today. The emotional and beautiful "Mistakes and Regrets" is the album's flagship song that despite it's emo-progressive structure and lyrics, shows punk and grunge elements that puts the band in a league of their own. Amazing studio work is also apparent (like the acid house-like opening to "Flood of Red").
The stepping stone between their self-titled debut and Source Tags and Codes is a must-have for any minimalist Austin punk but also attractive to more mainstream Thursday, Taking Back Sunday-type emo heads. Anybody who can listen to Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation, Radiohead's OK Computer or Husker Du's Zen Arcade will find this collection of music to be an essential soundtrack to your life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy Before Source Tags & Codes April 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
Madonna has it all. Crunching guitars, melodies, bombast, etc., but it's quieter moments are what make it stand out, if not above Source Tags & Codes, then pretty close. Aged Dolls sounds simple, almost boring at first, but it creates such a creepy mood, sucking you in to keep listening. The crecendos are beautiful. Clair de Lune is another pretty song unmatched by by anything in ST&C except maybe "After the Laughter". Throw in thrashers like Mistakes & Regrets, A Perfect Teenhood, and Totally Natural, and it's almost the perfect rock album. If only they would dispense with the minute long noodling (filler) that is distracting and the god-awful Sigh Your Children (Conrad does not sound good at all with just an acoustic guitar. Counting Off the Days from their new ep is another sad example). But I'm being picky. Buy Madonna before ST&C. If just to see their musical progression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bands Make Good Music Jan. 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
"A critic is someone who knows the way, but doesn't know how to drive." - Unknown
Comparing one band to another is really not reviewing an artist's work. Taken on their own talents, AYWKUBTTOD is an awesome Texas band, like Spoon, the Butthole Surfers and The Toadies. If you like the sound of Texas bands, you will definetly enjoy this one regardless of which album you get. Go see them live, you won't regret it. I live in Texas and I went to college with someone who was the sister of one of the guys in the band, so I got to see the band in Dallas a couple of times for free.

Those who are familiar with this band become hardcore fans of the music because of it's purity. All I can say is try it and see, you'll either love it or you won't, but don't dismiss it on one persons negative opinion because as the quote says, those who criticize others' work, usually don't know how to do it themselves.
