No matter how many reviews I read praising this album, I will never understand what makes everyone love it. It's a fun, chaotic, noisy, experimental album that does nothing but occasionally impress and disappoint. I appreciate the catchy guitar riffs, dreamy layering, and beautiful soundscapes. Even then, I'm unsure as to why everyone will call this one of their favorite modern rock records. I guess everything just feels a bit unorganized

I swear, this record never gets old. It's got some of the most loud yet catchy riffs I've ever heard with some solid drumming. Not to mention, there's some nice ambient tracks on this thing, but I do think they slow down the action a little bit which is disappointing. Overall, this is easily one of my favorite albums of the 2000s.

Favorite Tracks: Miner, Eraser, Things I Did When I Was Dead, Sleeper Hold, Here Should Be My Home, Ripped Knees, Brain Burner

Least Favorite Track: Keechie
