Shizuo Vs. Shizor is a bit easier to take than other Digital Hardcore groups, not because the music is any less abrasive, but because of the lack of politics, other than a vague punk nihilism on tracks like "Punks" and "Emptiness." Hammer is also a man of more diverse tastes, and he informs several tracks on his debut album with sleazy funk: "Blow Job," "Sweat" and "Blondo," which deftly apes "Heart of Glass" with panpipes. Most beneficial of all is Hammer's lack of patience with ideas; he moves from one to the other, avoiding the one-note repetition of some Digital Hardcore efforts.
