CRYPTICS, THE: Continuous New Behavior: LP

Oh fellas, I am so sorry to do this, but this record sounds like it was recorded— drums, bass, vocals—and then someone accidentally turned the guitar up to eleven on the mixing board, including the guitar solos, thus drowning out everything else that makes a band a band. The guitar sound is so thick in my headphones that I’m not sure I can fairly judge the rest of the record. I see online that you have recently toured with Angry Samoans. That’s fucking rad. Sorry. I can’t give this record a John Mule stamp of approval.
