Spahn Ranch has taken the road paved by many industrial related artists lately and moved their music towards a more accessible audience without compromising one little bit on the sound quality or musical value. The obvious comparisons to Executive Slacks are apparent but seeing as the lead singer used to be in that band previously it is hard to avoid such a similarity. The vocals are clear and undistorted, the lyrics while not very pop oriented are very catchy and the pop style chorus line is used with a great deal of effectiveness. Not having heard more than a compilation track by Spahn Ranch previously it is difficult to make a distinction between this and previous albums but I do feel that this is a solid and complete work with each track fitting together tightly into the finished puzzle of the album.

Spahn Ranch are:
Matt Green - Programming, Sampling, Synths
Rob Morton - Programming, Sampling, Synths
Athan Maroulis - Vocals, Lyrics
Jason Leach - Programming
