10/10. This is a very underrated album and I believe it's the ideal late 90's post-grunge/alternative rock album. They don't get enough recognition. With a raw anger in the vocals and melancholy instrumentation, this tranquil album is perfect to relax to or sulk in a depressive state. The song "Villains" is commentary on the negativity and glorification of criminals on the news which represents the album as a whole, covering dark and depressing themes. In particular many songs are heartbreaking and somber. "The Freshmen" is one of the greatest songs ever written and serves as a climax of heartbreak. "Veneer" concludes the album in a sort of fading away and slow death, similar to the end of Phoebe Bridgers' "Punisher". In a fanfare with combined voices, everything fades away as the end comes near.

ALBUM ARTWORK: I have no idea what the cover is. It looks like an x-ray of some alien creature. Or it may be a bird. Or it may be a lamp. I don't know but it's interesting to me. With the green filter, it makes me feel like the cover represents a dissection of corporate America (green representing money) in terms of seeing the evil and depression across the country, particularly as we see villains. You can blaze to this album and melt into your bed, curl up in the shower and cry, or drive alone and aimlessly. Either way, it's the perfect isolated, melancholy album full of raw emotion and pain.

VINYL RELEASE PLEASE. Free the records from the black hole year of 1996.
