The eight songs here have
a grinding propulsion that evinces the band's knack for raw expression.
Songs like My Iron Lung, The Trickster, Lewis (Mistreated), Punchdrunk
and Permanent Daylight deal with the bleakness of existence in style that
combines raucous guitar riffs with wispy vocals. Some may find the mix
of chaos and order too much of an earful, but the more you listen to the
disc, the deeper your appreciation grows.
