    I was really interested in this album because I heard that my man Joe Preston was doing bass on it. I saw the Daymare version in Japan (I regret so bad not getting it) that included a second bonus disc complete with ten or twelve additional songs. The album itself is sold. Even with the slow parts, the piano, the noisey solos, and everything in between, it comes together to be one giant mass of an album.
    For me being new to Harvey Milk, I would say that I am quite impressed. When I bought the cd, the guy working the counters told me this: this cd was a lot faster than previous Harvey Milk (must sound like classic Earth if you get any slower) and that it reminded him of new Torche. I must say that some elements of this album remind me of Torche, but in the end this album is a far stray from Meanderthal, or any Torche release for that matter. They both do contain awesome power chords interlaid with sludge filled riffs, but I find Meanderthal to contain more of a pop rock vibe (of course!) than the southern fried, dirty, swamp metal that is "Life."
    I was really impressed with the instrumentation, the solos were laid out very nice, and the vocals were done well. For now, I would have to say the opening track "Death Goes to the Winner" would have to be my favorite. The "pretty" parts as labeled in the cover, written by Preston are a very nice touch, and the extended solo that lasts for what seems forever sounded so awesome.

    Overall, the album flows very well. It shows great diversity, from pain-staking, low end dirges, to powerful, up-beat sludge/thrash attacks, everyone can find something they like about it. I really like how some parts seem thrown together, and still sound absolutely amazing (most of the solos).

    I really regret not picking up the Daymare version of this album, it's a must have.
