ILLNESS, THE: A Monument to Our Gilded Age: CD

I could feel the stomach acid trying to rise up and release itself all over the cover of this CD. Horrible, pretentious metal prog gobbledygook that worships at the awful altar that System Of A Down pollutes our drinking water with whenever it hits the airwaves. I really think I may have a case to prosecute this band under the Geneva Conventions Act. Any war tribunal would have pity on anyone who has to listen to the seven-plus minute closing song “Victory” more than once. Stay away.
