    Ah, Ungh!. I, along with many others, had never heard of this band. I discovered them recently when I was playing Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. A track that stood out to me was "Skate Afrikkana." I loved it. It is one of the most creative progressive songs I have ever heard. Its structure is unique and blasting. Its a cacophony of c\car horns, badly played violins, and jungle-like chants of "SKATE!" It's cacophony at its most harmonious form (if that's even possible). After listening to the song for an astronomical amount of time, I decided I HAD to find more of Ungh!'s music. I was superbly disappointed when a google search provided very little information on the band. After hours of searching, I stumbled upon a site that was hosting the album. I quickly downloaded it, and I'm very pleased. The first four songs are gems. Skate Afrikkana, the opening song, ties perfectly with the short drum solo following in the second track, "Manhunt." After this comes the third, "Josh Edit." A very unusual name for a song, and clearly unrelated to the song itself, but, man, does this song rock. The riffs and solos and drums create a dizziness that makes you wanna bounce up and down. The fourth track, "Whassup," is pure silliness, but very well-done silliness. I've memorized all of Whassup's lyrics as they are incredibly catchy. The rest of the songs are kind of bland, and never really caught my attention, but the first four make this album a MUST HAVE. It's too bad that Ungh! disbanded, as I would have really enjoyed hearing the other albums that they could have produced.
