More avant-garde weirdness, lots of female screaming, random sounding noises and no melodies or tunes to speak off, just some live recordings of a cacophony of noise, fits in quite well with the early John Zorn stuff I have been exploring. Just not the sort of stuff that I find interesting, especially over a whole album. I can only suffer this stuff in small doses when incorporated into a song or album that has some other actually listenable music. Nuff said, time to move onto something I enjoy. Rating 1/5.
