Customer Reviews

How has nobody written a review for this masterpiece?

I have to say I had to refresh the page a couple times until I could believe that nobody has written a review for this album. Perhaps there are just no words to describe the genius behind this piece of art. I'll try my best. This album will be on my top ten for the rest of my life for dozens of reasons. For one thing; the titles of the songs and many of the lines in the lyrics are awesome references to literature, video games, and film. Gatsbys manages to fit those references in so fluidly that they should be in the dictionary under "progressive." Everything about this album is just straight up awesome; from the no-nonsense track lengths to the completely original and brilliant arrangements of each song. The drummer, Rudy, deserves a special place in heaven for the kind of catastrophic beats that emanate from his hands.

Pure wonderment!

Even years later I can come back to it and hear just the opening chords to a song and immediately start singing along. Nic Newsham's voice is like nothing i've heard before and when I found out they were on hiatus I was seriously heartbroken. I'm looking forward to hearing their new stuff though, since they've reunited, and I really hope that it's filled with the same lyrical genius as this cd with mentions of literature, video games and pop culture.
