Nothingface are a rare example of a band that got better with each album. They go out with a bang on 2003's "Skeletons". It's an engaging and always interesting mix of soft ballads and angry pseudo metalcore. It's hard to believe the same guy is singing on tracks like "Ether" and "I Wish I Was a Communist". "Scission", "Beneath", "Patricide" and "Ether" easily sound like songs that could of been made by some faceless multi-platinum alt-rock band, in stark contrast to tracks like "Big Fun at the Gallows", "All Cut Up" and the aforementioned "I Wish I Was a Communist" where the singer just sounds so incredibly pissed off and vicious.

Another thing about this album is that the band really got creative with the song titles, in contrast to their previous albums which had generic titles like "Filthy". I doubt any band had ever named their songs "Murder is Masturbation", "Big Fun at the Gallows" or "I Wish I Was a Communist" at this point. The album's lyrics are much more interesting and mature (save for the random f-bombs) than before, they touch on subjects such as sexual abuse by Catholic Priests, corrupt politicians and the wars in Afghanistan/Iraq.

All in all this is probably one of the best nu metal releases ever, obviously that isn't saying much but still.
