Like their debut, this album could be generalized as some sort of cross between punk rock and the funk metal of Faith No More's "Introduce Yourself", although generalizations never do eclectic genre hopping bands such as this justice. "Bonnie Brea" and "Hotel Diablo" for example are full blown psychdelic jams, while "King Arthur" gives an early indication of Mosley's love for sarcastic acoustic ditties. Perhaps most shockingly to Mike Pattonphiles, "The Man with the Action Hair" manages to display a great sense of melody in ballad-y type tracks such as "Crying", "Killing an Angel", "Sleep" and "Life on the Sun". To me these sort of songs are proof that Chuck could actually sing, especially since they were recorded 4 years prior to the advent of auto tune / pitch correction.

Nice to see a Cement review! Really underrated stuff, just like most of Chuck Mosley's material.
