As almost everyone who has ever heard this CD has said, this is not at all for everyone, and even the most musically inclined will probably need a couple of listens to get on Dillinger Escape Plan's frequency. Still, don't get scared - you'll get it eventually and then you'll hear things like never before. Highlight tracks include 43% Burnt, the title track, and Weekend Sex Change.
It's really unfortunate because the rest of the band is pretty phenomenal. Each member sounds like they're just going nuts on their instrument... yet it somehow works together. Every song is full of unexpected twists and turns, where the band will suddenly do a 180 at the drop of a hat. (I have no idea how they keep track of where they are in a song) The star of the band is probably the guitarist, who often breaks out into atonal, chromatic leads played at break-neck speed. There's a definite, jazz-like influence in his playing, which is an interesting twist in hardcore. The drummer is also pretty amazing. Check out the machine gun drumming on 43% burnt.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I wish Dillinger had a different singer, because no matter how good the band is, the constant screaming just makes this album unbearable. Occasionally, the screaming can be compelling (As on Destro's Secret), but usually it's just annoying. But there is no doubt that the rest of the band has a TREMENDOUS amout of potential. If you can tolerate the singer, then I recommend this CD.

You know, I read somewhere on here where someone said in their review that even the most musically inclined will get lost in this during the first couple listens. Not true. Read morePublished on July 19 2004
