This album really doesn't get going for me until the end. Mile Long Lump of Lard is a decent stomper, but it sounds distorted at certain points on my version of the CD. Thursday's Keeper finally goes off into dub-space and Terminus soars off into the infinite. A very nice way to end the album. It feels like one huge sonic flange. In the grand sheme of the universe I'd have to say that this is not a super important album. It sort of feels like leftover songs from Orblivion or something. Not bad, but not great.
