I picked this up after weeks of incessant urging by a friend of mine. I respect (although often disagree) with his taste in music and I had reservations about this one. I was expecting black spiked leather/gay biker/mullet speed metal or something in that vein. I couldn't have been more wrong. Not that this album doesn't have testicular fortitude- it flat out rocks. But it is subtle in the right places. I wouldn't call them ballads, but TOD scales it back a couple times, then hits you in the forehead with a claw hammer. The haunting segues between songs add a very nice feel as well. I can't recommend this more strongly. One of the few albums I'd classify as a "must have".

i've had this album probably since '02. i just recently picked this up again and decided how good it was. This was truly my first introduction to "indie rock" as it was known, but i had no idea that this was that. I have since then listened to all sorts of indie stuff but i'm very glad i came back to this record for several reasons. Versatality is a huge one. The record plays from start to finish and it has many personalities. There are great pop melodies (it was there) and things that drift more to hardcore (track #4). The strange thing is that the album works very very well as a whole as well. The songs themselves are great but to really let this sink in..listen to it many times straight through. Listen to the skill of the single note melodies-and the nice full melodic sound of the bass throughout "it was there" (among others). Feel Conrads pain as he screams in track #4 and also listen to the amazing (different) lyrics that are on this record. Especially relative ways. This whole album is not the most accessible thing to most people. It will take a lot of time to really get into it, but its completely worth it once you start actually singing the guitar parts because you know them so well. Yeah, so overall this album is great and i would encourage fans of ATDI, Mars Volta, Flaming Lips, and Pavement to really check these guys out. Flaming lips seem out of place but if you listen to the last track on the record-completely flaming lips style. But yes, all in all, great record and its completely worth the money.

Not a bad little album. Nothing mind-blowing or remarkably new, but what's done is done well. At its best, there's a lot of inspired and wonderful noise - the way the band plays with dynamics reminds me a lot of Fugazi (which is a very good thing indeed). At its worst, this sounds like a nameless and forgotten early 90s Seattle act.
Thankfully, the bad moments are few and far between, and the good moments are frequent. And there's enough odd bleeps and burbles and hidden sounds to keep the listener entertained and continually discovering new bits of the album - always a nice touch.
In particular, the closing track is a thing of great beauty - starting off with a Pavement-ish progression before exploding into glorious noise and then an odd orchestral bit - very nice.
Definitely an album worth exploring, providing you don't expect something paradigm-shifting.

I was at the University of Texas in Austin when these guys just started out. You can not believe the buzz about them that developed among the intella-indie scene around west campus. It was never about their musical ability. It was always about "oh my god, you have to see these freaks live."
Hearing these guys again takes me back to a show in an obscure hall on a _freezing_ winter night (it actually does get cold in Austin). There couldn't have been more than 20 people in attendance, including the band. Trail of Dead just exploded onstage. They basically attacked the audience. I will never forget it. Well, anyway, these guys have improved tremendously. This is actually a CD that I can listen to and enjoy more than be amused by.

Killer record that flows tremendously well from beginning to end. So they're a bit derivative, what isn't? the album still rocks like a mother focker. They sound like a more melodic and coherent Daydream nation era Sonic Youth with their walls of guitar noise interwined with strings and some nice piano interludes. Hardly a weak moment on the album. If you want something that will jolt your brain for a while that isn't some angry moronic metal band, look no further than Source tags & codes.

When I spun this disc I felt like it was 1993 all over again and I was waking up to "Serve the Servants" and going to bed with "Release." Whoever said grunge was dead, was lying. It's all here, a wall of muddy sound and lyrics which border between self-loathing goth and socially-confused post-folk. What's new? Bells here and there. If I ever wake-up I'll realize that "Homage" is just a Nirvana send up, and "Baudelaire" did more for Soundgarden than Soundgarden ever did. Ten years ago I would have loved this album more than my Algebra II homework and the cute zit faced girl in the corner. Today, well, I just think it's pretty good.

If the Earth suddenly realized it had been dead for a long, long time, these songs are the sounds it would make as it blinked out of existence. An amazing instrumental wall of sound accompanies vivid imagery of a fiery apocalypse. I can't even BEGIN to express how good this album sounds when you crank it up as loud as you can on your stereo and start to notice all the subtleties among the chaos, the way notes bounce off of each other and reverberate around the inside of your head. Listened to at a moderate volume level, this album is good. Listened to very loudly, it's amazing.
