★☆☆☆ I’m giving this one star because it’s a fascinating car wreck to listen to. Otherwise, I just don’t get this at all. The biggest problem is that this album features a mix that only Brian Slagel in the late 80s could love. Why the fuck is the synth the loudest thing on this album? (At one point, keyboards literally drown out blast beats!) What I can make out of the guitars and drums indicates some decent playing. But holy crap, the vocals are painful to listen to.  And they’re sadly easier to hear in the mix. Seriously, this feels like a chipped tooth.
