GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES!: More Skin with Milk-Mouth: CD

May 26, 2008

I was right this time! Whales on the cover! Prog! Or is it math-art-prog-rock? Don’t care… Kind of prog-punk, if we can allow for such a classification. And since prog is a distinctly problematic genre for me, this gets a mixed review. Parts of it rule and rocking is to be had, but it moves on to boring shit just when yer gettin’ yer groove. If you’re into this stuff, I’m sure it will be satisfying like a good back scratch, but if you’re not into math-art-prog-whatever, there are better places to spend your dough. Would somebody please finish this ineffectual review for me and ease me down from the Hook of Vacillation?
