The album I have is called Intelligence and Sacrifice. I know he's supposed to be a very iconic sort of guy, but somehow this just sits wrong. Maybe I'm jaded from being a big tchkung fan for so long but whenever someone makes some kind of "statement" without any humor to it I get bored pretty quickly- no matter how nice the music is.

That said, this IS very hard music. It's fast, crunchy, and lives up to all the love I felt back in the day for atari teenage riot. Except that it's just him with the vocals- and his voice cuts like a cheese grater after a while.

In a random mix, or in the shuffle setting, this album is awesome, but on its own it's a big horse pill and hard to get all the way down.
