If you love Smoke or Fire, then I suggest you get this. It sounds exactly like Smoke or Fire, probably because it is Smoke or Fire, just with another name. It's politically charger lyrics are both creative and fun to listen to. Definately pick it up if you get a chance
Fantastic. This CD, while not their best is still pretty damn good. You can definately sense the transition they are about to take with their music from Guided Tour of Chicago into Greatest Story Ever Told. There is a nice mix between the sofer sides of the CD and the faster "traditional" lawrence arms. If you are a fan of the Lawrence Arms, I would definately suggest that this be in your collection.
This album is amazing! Ten Years is probably one of my top five all time favorite Casket Lottery songs ever. Smoke and Mirrors picks up exactly where Survival Is For Cowards left off, a bit dark and a bit louder, they still stick to their math rock roots. All ups, but there has to be a bit of down: The lyrics in Come Sweet Revenge, I personally believe are a bit lame. But this CD gets and deserves five stars. If you are a Casket Lottery fan, purchase this CD. It will be a 20 minutes well spent.
