Poundy, distorty French garage with curious graphics that are somewhere between hippie and hip-hop. My noble gases remained largely inert until their inarguably ragin’ cover of “I’m a Bug” by the Urinals, then i thought the next few songs were all pretty cool as well. Not without its merits, yet i’d likely not think twice about slicing open this record’s belly and warming myself with its steaming innards were i in a desperate and freezing state. Which, come to think of it, i usually am. BEST SONG: “I’m a Bug,” unless you don’t believe in Urinals covers, in which case it’d be “I’m So Glad.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Midnight Jock,” if that’s what it says. Heck, even if it’s not! FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: My hand-numbered copy is number two hundred out of three hundred. Boy, what are the odds of that? Oh, that’s right, one in three hundred.
