This is not your older brother’s Primus album. I wouldn’t even bother reviewing this except that it appears none of the other reviewers understood this album and I can’t let it go out like that. For one thing, the new drummer, Brian Mantia, has a completely different style than Herb. He’s much more concerned with creating space than pyrotechnics and he’s much more of an ensemble player. Honestly, he just sounds better with Les than Herb did. Second, the tones of the instruments on this album are a total departure for Primus– this is low-fidelity at its finest. The drum sounds alone are worth the price of this CD. The bass sounds like it was recorded direct, and the guitar is strangely mixed (arguably LaLonde’s finest moment, by the way). This is a great album and it sounds even better on vinyl if you can find it (good luck)!
