This is about half spoken word, 25% good music, 25% shit music.

This is the worst thing DHR ever released.
I know their point was to kind of do something with this "community" of artists, which is kind of honorable, but this just came out awful. Everytime I look at this CD, I cringe.

Even just from my first impression, the cover art, I knew this was going to be bad. Looks totally thrown together in about 5 minutes, which it probably was.

Then you put the CD in and it sounds like it looks.
There's only about 2 decent tracks on the whole thing.
Nic Endo's "Bells" is a nice ambient, spacey, sci-fi sounding piece. Really nice.
Also, The Dillinger Escape Plan & Nic Endo "43% Burnt Remix" is alright, but not amazing. It's just basically hardcore & noise.

You can tell the DHR guys didn't want to put any effort into this thing. Which is why you see almost none of them on here.
Even the Alec Empire & Matt Pizzolo track "Alleged Accused Repeated Reused" is just Alec's 22:24 with political samples over it, that I'm guessing were Matt Pizzolo's contribution. Lame. I doubt Alec was even in the country, let alone the room for that one. Either way, the track totally fails. "22:24" is amazing on it's own, don't throw crap all over it!

The rest is either weak crappy punky things, overly political soundbytes, or some fairly forgettable hip-hop.
Nothing on here stands out.
