Definately a highlight for the Screamo scene. It is passionate, aggressive and raw with some great introspective on death and the feelings of alienation which comes with it. If you like you're music heavy, noisy and completely in your face then this is a record you would love.

Listening to it again, as you could probably tell by my score, my opinion has changed a lot. Please do give this unique and innovative skramz act a chance if you haven't already; they are wonderful.
