Static X really did it with this album, even though they had a dry streak with “shadow zone” and “beneath, between, beyond”, this was good enough to hold me over until “start a war” went on sale. This album has some great work by the band. Songs like “get to the gone”, “black and white” “this is not” and their most popular song from this album”cold” were evidence of the talent this band actually has. something that makes this cd better than “wisconsin death trip is that their songs have the techno keyboard in the background, but it’s more used to enhance the song rather than to be a main instrument like on their previous album. Overall I think is Static X’s best album so far.
