It's not everyday a CD with a picture of a rubber duck on the cover falls on your doorstep! From the first track it is obvious that this band have an "interesting" sense of humour and couple with this 16 tracks which feature bass centred songs and range from Chili Peppers style funk to more punk influenced tracks. Lyrics arc fairly wide ranging dealing with a number of issues from the hypocrisy of America to evolution and the invasion of evil ducks! (a metaphor perhaps?) In general, this CD provides some interesting music if your tastes lend towards the more alternative side of things. On the vocal side, things vary quite widely from spoken word on "Fetus" to a growl on "Tripe" but never seem to find a consistent (or. dare I say it, good) style and almost seem to fade away on some Hacks. Some hard work and definitely more work on the production are needed but this album is still an interesting listen.
