  Brilliant Industrial Vibe mixed with Buzzy Chainsaw Riffs and interwined with hammering industrial drumloops. Devin makes the song flows dynamic and the track listing is smartly placed to not bore the listener in any way.
Crazy lyrics and demented vocals suddenly burst out in the middle of lullaby like passages.
"S.Y.L" , "In The Rainy Season", " Happy Camper (Carpe B.U.M.) " and "Skin Me"..... are my personal favs
Unlike several good albums which start incredible and interesting and fade out in the end, this is one of those rare albums that gets more and more interesting as it progresses and "Satan's Ice Cream Truck" is sarcastic finale to this industrialized Urban beast.
The industrial beats and lack of a real drummer made me worry abt it in the beginning, but that goes well with overall structure of the album and the nature of the vocals !!
And Unlike their sophomore release which has 5 incredible singles juxtaposed between Fillers. this one is pretty consistent too. So a 9 from me.
