Mindless Self Indulgence

Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy

Elektra

This band is unbelievable. I think that out of all the rapish-metal bands out there, these guys are the most creative. It’s a weird mixture between Ween and Rage Against the Machine or something. It’s all over the place, the programmed drums (I hope) are just insane. The keyboards are ridiculous, there are tons of weird noises and voices going every which way. So much energy. There’s 30 songs on this album, and that’s a good deal. The singer can actually sing when he’s not being a spastic hyper crazy person. There are synths galore and this music is really weird. Similar to Squarepusher. I love it.
