I'd argue this band is way different from Slint in sound, the Grubs Squirelbait connection is all. The vocals are way in the background of each song, the vocals non-prominence makes it all the more powerful in the same way as the vocals on Black Flags 'In My Head'. There are a lot of epic build ups, fluid riffing and solid tracks. To give it the Post Rock tag dilutes the album greatly before listening, it doesn't have that detachment that is so familiar to the Post Rock genre.

Ben Hur is different to the other Bitch Magnet albums and is arguably their greatest achievement. Bitch Magnet in my view made one of the greatest rock albums ever made that recontextualised what a guitar band can do.
