더이상의 그라인드코어는 없다!! 99트랙 21여분의 러닝타임.. 뭐 달리 말이 필요한가!
분당 2000비트에 달하는 살인적인 머신건 드러밍과 노이즈 가득한 보컬과 기타에 날카로운 현실풍자까지! 드럼프로그래밍, 보컬에 기타까지 맡고있는 프런트맨 스콧헐의 역량이 돋보이는 퓨어그라인드의 역작으로 그라인드코어의 새지평을 연 의미있는 기념비적 음반이다. 단지 중반부에 과도한 나레이션의 배치로 인해 긴장감이 떨어지고 약간 지루한감이 있지만 곡전반을 지배하는 엄청난 스피드가 이를 상쇄하고도 남는다. 제한된 짧은시간내에 그라인드코어를 제대로 알고자하는 리스너에게 안성맞춤!

2집의 연장선?느낌이 상당히 강한 Agoraphobic Nosebleed 의 3집 입니다.그라인드코어 라고 한다면 갈아 엎어버릴 듯한 사운드와 짧게 박살낸다?라는 이런 공식에 충실한 밴드지만,아주 짧은 곡 구성은 하나하나 엮어 가면서 짜임새가 있어야 비로소 돋보이는데 이번 작품은 난해한 후반부 곡들이 조금은 이 그라인드코어 특성상 그렇다고 할지라도 난해한 편이 아쉬웠습니다.특히 무한 질주의 리프가 도리어 산만한 전개를 보여줬다는 점이 아쉬웠습니다.

고평가 받을 앨범은 아닌 것 같다.
level   (80/100)
Holy crap this was an amazing listen. This album crushes your cochlea in a 20 minute span. If there weren't any talking parts debasing the stream of frenzy, I certainly would've given a much higher rating.

야! 참신하다
level   (75/100)
한 앨범에 100곡에 육박하는 수록곡들이 있어 말많았던 앨범. 음악도 수록곡 수만큼이나 골때린다만 손은 자주 가진 않는 음반.
level   (40/100)
병신같은 앨범. NapalmDeath 의 최소한 반만 닮자
level   (80/100)
생각보다 아무 의미없는 것도 아니고 시간 죽이기도 좋고 듣기도 괜찮다.
level   (45/100)
"이걸 왜 들을까." 심각해진 적이 있었다.
level   (85/100)
20분안에 가장 많은 음악을 들으면 이기는 앨범..
level   (95/100)
PGPGPGPGPGPGPGPG!!!!! Bloody hell! this is ultra fucking fast and short. Now this is my kind of noise!
level   (80/100)
중간 중간 나레이션 트랙들이 의도와는 달리 좀 흐름을 끊는 거 같지만 그럭저럭 들을 만하다. 근데 보너스로 딸려오는 리믹스 디스크가 더 마음에 드는 건 나 뿐인가? 여담이지만 되감기 기능이 있는 플레이어로만 들을 수 있는 0번트랙이 존재한다.

어느샌가 99곡이 흘러가있다.
level   (85/100)
정말로 심심할때 들으면 괜찮은데, 아무리그래도 이건 너무 짧잖아!! [말한마디만하고 허무하게 넘어가는 몇몇곡은 있지만...]
level   (80/100)
20분동안 100곡듣는방법
level   (82/100)
울트라스피드머신건질주를 듣다보면 순식간에 99트랙이 후딱 지나간다..광란의 그라인드향연
level   (80/100)
시간 잘 간다. 킬링타임용으로 최곻
