Pineal Ventana starts their disc with a forty-five-second from a retired couple disenfranchised with the American dream. In comes more rock and punk exposition of angst and near-political commentary ("The trickle down theory doesn't work!"). All is communicated in visual metaphor and explosive delivery. By the conclusion, the band ages themselves into convulsing senility and bursts of noisy rage. Not pretty, but sincere and unforgettable.
