LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT, THE: Caw! The Unkindness of Ravens: CD

This is some wild-ass stuff. I’m not sure it’s actually good, but it’s definitely interesting. The Long And The Short Of It play a mix of punk and prog rock that is best taken in small doses. The guitar riffing is occasionally pretty inventive, but the vocals get old quick. (Dude sounds like an annoying version of Guy Piccioto.) I can’t decide if they do that on purpose or not.
