Fast and powerful, this quartet shows what grind is all about. The songs are too short to get boring yet suprisingly catchy. I'm not sure if you ever hear the same part more than once unconsecutively which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. They use a suprising amount of melody while still keeping things properly chaotic. A number of samples litter the album from the open 3 seconds to the last half of "Girl Are Your Pregnant..." they are properly unfitting adding to the clear humor of the band. The song titles as you can see are excellent and very funny. 
There are so many great things to notice on this album. You have to asume that for a band with such short fast songs (song length average sits at 54 seconds) The drums are very grind-y and good, but not the standout. The standout is most certainly the guitar which is very stylized, jumping all over the place. As an example, in "Let's Fall In Love Over AIM..." there is a very clear blues/southern influnece. The bass is also quite good and usually, there is a cool interplay between bass and guitar.
It's hard to say alot about this album because while it has just as many riffs and parts as most 60 minute albums, it is still under 1 minutes itself. I'd recommend this to fans of grind, tech metal or any core in general, especially fans of The Number 12 Looks Like You, Daughters, Into The Moat and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
And all i have to say this album is fucking sick!!! Enjoy!
