Album Review

There was a time in rock music when if you were a band that specialized in complex, technically demanding music, you were easily classified as prog rock. But come the early 21st century, bands with hardcore and metal roots began adding tricky bits into their sound, which mutated into a whole new style. A perfect example of this crop of bands would include Dillinger Escape Plan and Meshuggah, while a second (or third?) wave of such acts eventually followed, such as Look What I Did. Produced by Jane's Addiction/Deftones veteran Brian Virtue, 2005's Minuteman for the Moment is chock-full of unpredictable song structures and impressive playing. A few things that Look What I Did have in common with the multitude of other similarly styled bands is that their vocals (supplied by a chap named Barry Donegan) alternate between melodic singing and hardcore screaming, and their lyrics and song titles are quite "stream of consciousness" ("The Fox Eats TV Ishmael," "Chest Is a Ribcage," etc.). Fans of modern-day math rock should find quite a bit to cherish on Minuteman for the Moment, especially such standouts as the pummeling, album-opening title track and the melodic noise of "Appomattox Whorehouse."

Original. I have been following these guys since around late 2004 and just happened upon them in Dallas, TX to see a friends band play. I fell in love with the originality of "My First Time" their first album and Minute Man for The Moment is just as astounding. You have no idea what you have stepped off into until it is too late and their music just surrounds you at every angle and you can't get enough!!!!


First off, let me just say that I saw these guys live.. and I was scared. I didn't like it at all. I mean I really disliked it. But this album is good, I was surprised. There might be something like this out there but I haven't heard it. It's poetry in the form of organized chaos. I can't imagine how they can remember the progression of this music. It's all over the place and yet you can tell they know what they are doing. When comparing it to other bands I can only say this is what it would sound like if you threw king crimson and the deftones down the stairs together.

I loved it... but damn do my ears hurt.

I too saw these guys live (at the Knitting Factory no less) and I actually had to stand about twenty feet away from the stage after they left and the next band played. It wasn't because I didn't enjoy the other band, it was because I needed my eardrums to recover. Now where was I? Oh yeah, these guys are pretty good. Defiantly uncatogorizable, much like my other 'obscure' favorites like Idiot Flesh and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.
