this has to be the best blood brothers release in my opinion. tighter than rlw and just better than tair. much more intense than the mellow crimes, and less polished than bpi,b. this cd is pretty hard to listen to on the first try, especially if you've only heard stuff from crimes or bpi,b. but you read the lyrics, realize how original they are and the album gets better and better with each listen. to anyone that doesn't really know what to expect from the blood brothers: spazzy, screaming dualing vocals, with random but catchy guitar riffs, almost drive like jehuesque. f***ing fast, only one maybe two songs i dislike. best song: new york slave. buy this album.
i gave this cd 3 (should be 3 1/2) not because of the quality of the alk3 tracks (5 outta 6, not if you had a bad time) but cuz OMA's stuff is only decent. there are solid tracks from them, and some that could grow on me, but not great stuff. standout songs are dead and broken, hating every minute, sadie, TV song and epidemic. alk3 fans: buy this record. i can't speak for OMA fans.
