This eight-song follow-up to the superb Without End, released on Japanese punk indie 1+2 Records, contains some of The Gargoyles' best and worst work. The first half serrates the ears, and guitarists Alison Victor and Doug Heeschen played on all of these songs. The second half of the album consists of four more recklessly played hardcore punk songs. The less polished direction is possibly the result of new guitarist Neil Smith, whose style is less piercingly accentuated than Victor's or Heeschen's.
