"She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair. With blood on her hands, into the sun she stares. She feels it die, I heard her cry."

Welcome in the world of Acid Bath. A sick and violent world, where serial killers roam the streets and drugs are an absolute necessity to escape the vile state of mind so often called "reality". This five-headed monster is violent, depressed, pissed-off, drunk, on acid, raging, insane, dead and rotting, and all at the same time. "When The Kite String Pops" is their message to the world.

I find this one way more accessible than the second one. But it is better in the songwriting department and especially when it comes to the production.
Btw, I remember Jupitreas saying that the second one has a production which is loads better than this one Sorry, but then he must be deaf.


I KNOW RIGHT? When I read that he fopund the production lackluster here and great in the sophomore I was like HELL NO. It's THIN on the sophomore. And that is not good at all for the music.

But I disagree with you. C'mon if it weren't for the lyrics and some of the screams, virtually all the second album is for radio. Specially tracks like Venus Blue. The second album is way more radio-friendly. The riffs are less sludge, hardcore, doom and waaaay more rock, stoner. Hence way more accessible by the average dude.

Morocco girl IN A DAY has changed her rating from 6 to 7. Douche.

Well, as aformentioned you really need to work on how to give rating. Don't keep swinging.

The strength of the rhythm component in this album is so undeniable that after reading objections as to the quality of the album I feel compelled to reply some sort of incredible statement like "you can't yet appreciate the guitar riff". I can only think the same thing when people hate on Metallica's classic albums.

Probably because he thinks that we might think it's not GodMoron.

Thanks.
I was originally named Cabbage but my mum thought Strawberry sounds more serious and smart, so I got my name changed later.
