SPREAD EGO: Micro-Manipulators: CDEP

There’s something in the recording of the CD that makes it sound like it was recorded in a tin tunnel where someone is constantly felling Christmas trees full of ornaments. It’s this weird, delayed metallic whispery sound that has me thinking that something got over processed on the computer (but that’s just a guess). They sorta sound like Black Flag smoked a lot of pot and it really got to them (okay, post Slip It In Black Flag, same thing), but not nearly as interesting, certainly less punchy, and more arty repetitive. Too jammy. Sorry. No thanks.
