Ahead of it's time for many on it's 1995 releases, the album's brilliance has shone like a Black star as it's listeners have matured. Now a firm favourite of many with its melodic and rocky moments hinting at the directions that Bill, Jeff and Ken would explore in their subsequent bands, though maintaining the caustic grind edge we have all come to expect from the legendary Carcass. From a musical standpoint, this is Death Rock indeed or rather, according to the bandmembers' own words, "Rot'n'Roll". The songwriting is quite different respect to the CARCASS-standards. In fact, the construction of the tracks appears to be simplified, being mostly based on verse-chorus-verse structures. The result is an odd hybrid between aggression and melody, wisely emphasized by almost constant mid-paced tempos. Anyway, the distinctive sound of the band is well preserved, though undeniably progressed but it's yet pretty recognizable as CARCASS.
