I really wanted to like this CD. Bedhead used some interesting techniques, like having each of three guitarists play a single note to build chords, and the music is overall pretty good. But I can only take so much mumbling from a lead vocalist, and Matt Kadane gives me that and so much more. He's practically inaudible from start to finish, but I guess I don't really want to listen to him going on about depression, death, and suicide for a whole album anyway. If I did, I'd just spin up some NoMeansNo.

On the positive side, "Roman Candle" is pretty nice, and the outros on "The Rest of the Day" and "Withdraw" are excellent.
