The first twelve seconds of this record sound like I’m about to be taken on an adventure through hell. It’s a really powerful twelve seconds. And while the rest of the record is impressive as fuck—I mean, it is the Screaming Females—I feel like I’m just being re-impressed, not more impressed. When I saw them live I was more impressed. Marissa throwing her guitar at the amp and manipulating the feedback with her array of pedals and knobs was fucking awesome! If you’ve been stoked on all the other full-lengths, then I suggest picking this up without hesitation; it’s still full of hooks and riffs. But if you’ve found yourself tiring of the wankage, you’re probably better without it.
