I didn't quite know what to expect from this band on their 3rd album, but I'm happy with the results. It's different, still sounds like the Hidden Hand, but they've found their niche and then ran over it with a train. The songwriting between this 3-peice has progressed into a beast, the riffs are unique and monsterous, the bass lines are anything but boring, the guitar work...well, it's freakin' Wino, what else can I say? Lyrically this album differs from the pervious two in that it steers away from current politics and into the story of a character struggling a few hundred years ago in early modern America. Best Hidden Hand album yet, hands down.
