We posted the first Engine Kid album awhile back on this here blog, and that one generated a fair amount of "hits" (in the parlance of the interweb world), so it seems you are ready to handle the second, and dare I say, better of their records.
Surely all of us (and I do count myself as one) Gorilla Biscuits fans were a bit perplexed at the inclusion of Engine Kid on the Revelation Records roster, but after Burn and Quicksand, I suppose this album was "hardcore enough" to fit the bill of the changing label. If you had heard the first album, then this one isn't much of a surprise, you still are basically channeling Slint though much larger and beefier amps, and the guys playing the music have spent a fair amount of time wrestling punk and hardcore riffs to the ground prior to this outing. Nah'mean? This album is still way more burly than the weird jazz freakouts that would show up on their split with Iceburn around this same time, and could more be seen as a preview to the huge sounds singer/guitarist Greg Anderson would be making after Engine Kid's demise in Burning Witch and Goatsnake.
If you thought the first album was too "Slint-y", try this one and let me know what you think. If you appreciate math rock, hardcore, or metal, I think you can find something about this one to latch onto.
