- May 5, 2003I think the guitars are significantly different on just a couple cuts. One could associate the tones to nu/spice metal I suppose, or it might remind one of old Fishbone. It sounds fine to me. Maybe I'll upload both to my SoulSeek folder and people can hear from themselves.

Live drums are nice, sure, but the guitars on the new version stink
of rap-metal. Limp Bizkit, the full crap monty. If you
side-by-sided 'em & couldn't tell much difference, maybe there's a
3rd album out there that I'm missing out on, 'coz the 2 I'm talking
about sound waaaay different.
