Highly underrated

I love this album. Granted, there are a few songs that could have been left off- and unusually, a few uninspired and dragging moments. As a 10-11 track album however, I would give it 5 stars. I didn't like it as much at first as compared to their other albums- it isn't as immediately enjoyable, but with repeated listenings, I've come to really appreciate this album. The good songs are as good as anything Prong has ever done. The intricate, choppy riffs, unusual time signatures, and artificial harmonics are all there. Let this one marinate awhile. It's an underrated gem in their catalog. In fact- their most underrated album.

Take it for what it is and for what it isn't.

This is a warm up session. After the indefinite hiatus following the masterpiece that is Rude Awakening, the future of Prong was uncertain to say the least. Thankfully, Victor got it back up and running albeit with a new (and changing) lineup. Is this one amazing? No. However, there are many strong elements of Prong all over this and it would be interesting to hear a few of them re-worked and/or re-recorded. The song, Reactive Mind could have been on Beg To Differ while Inner Truth borders on Rude Awakening and Cleansing. Entrance of the Eclipse is almost a spin off of Snap Your Fingers, but without ripping it off and totally different vocals and lyrics. Victor sounds heavier on this and even sings on a few which you began to hear on RA. Recommended for the die-hard prong fan, but definitely not a starting point. That would be Primitive Origins (pun intended).

Track listing is off

The song letter to a "friend" is not the advertised song, it is switched to the one above it, please someone, fix this!!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Rising out of the expansive early-'90s thrash metal landscape, New York's Prong carved a niche all their own with their minimalist urban take on the genre. After years working as a soundman at New York's CBGB, Tommy Victor (vocals/guitars) drafted doorman Mike Kirkland (bass) and ex-Swans drummer Ted Parsons to form Prong in the mid-'80s. The trio's early independent releases -- Primitive Origins and Force Fed -- were extremely raw and betrayed their hardcore roots. By the time the group signed with...
