Album Review
Manx Craptaticus
Reviewed 2006-10-01
Dramatic/Theatric/musical rock with a dark, rotting, suburban horror message. Sonically,
it is secretly hip-hop inspired rock with slow-mid discordant beats with out of tune piano, strings, guitar stabs, and half spoken delivery. Hint of Fiery Furnaces.
They turn up the volume and melody on the hooks tho with vox distorted in the Live 105 way that has
been all the rage past coupla years. FCC 3,9. Picks 2,5,11.

1-(0:51) horror soundtrack. Desparate, manic voice.
***2-(4:22) catchiest. piano horror loop. 35 sec. lead in. slow-mid steady stomp. tin hat trio loop? epic hook. overly dramatic. last 20 sec. are looped.
3-(5:00 slow-mid skeletal proggy, herky-jerky, rock hip-hop. FCC "assholes"
4-(5:52) sluggish rock hop with ghosty vocal loop. nearly spoken. hook is more melodic. ends with ghosty voice loops.
**5-(4:15) melodic poppy. brisk beat. cello sets beat. almost belongs in a musical. Heavy string element. last 30 sec. instr. dies out.
*6-(1:02) spooky child speaking about supernatural with pitch bended keyboards.
*7-(5:41) 22 sec. piano interlude. more mid tempo rock-hop. jagged guitar. aggressive desp. hook. ends weak.
8-(1:26) starts out like 1. but has more percussion to move it along. voice talking about paranormal experience. lead into 9.
9-(3:06) midtempo. fast piano boogie-woogie rock. abrasive guitar solo. FCC "fuck"
10-(1:51) quiet and slow. discordant piano slow arpeggios. sung vox.
**11-(4:05) "we're horrified looped". slow beat. prominent bass. hook that is 1/2 step away from catchiness. Ends suddenly/continues on to 12?
12-(1:36) continuation of 11. repetitive. ends and bleeds into 13.
13-(4:02) different. ballady. lo-fi vocals with piano. starts quiet and builds with timpani and distorted vox. -1:30 drums enter. ends quiet.
14-(2:38) more panicking voice. with horror piano. steady instr. crescendo to the end with synth sounds.
15-(5:06) vocal loop start. slow-mid. snaky guitar stabs. rock-hop. angry sound.
