3.5/5 ·
Warthur
Stabbing Westward got away with shameless Nine Inch Nails worship on their debut album, but this second release was really the time for them to assert a distinct identity of their own and they don't quite manage it. Although little musical growth over Ungod is shown, and whilst some songs tend to plod along (I Don't Believe is kind of terrible as an album opener in this respect because it doesn't establish any momentum) when the album is on form it's an enjoyable evocation of the experience of being a spoiled teenager in the 1990s. Enjoyable, but not as deep or meaningful as the lyrics are trying to be.
