Album Review

The first thing you'll notice upon listening to the second album from Portland, OR's Diesto is, unfortunately, the fact that it sounds like it was recorded on the bass player's kid brother's boombox in their basement. The band sounds simultaneously overdistorted and muffled, an effect that would have been difficult to achieve on purpose but was probably unintentional.

The sound quality really is inexcusable, though, and at just over 31 minutes this album is just a little bit short to be sold as a full-length.
