Spaz-rockers the Mae Shi have finally made an album that matches their ambitions, one that manages to be listenable, cohesive, and catchy- all new territory for the newly reconfigured . Even without those themes, the Mae Shi run through a gauntlet of gaudy ideas without ever losing steam, like the fleet-fingered riffs of "Boys in the Attic" (see what they did there?) or the community-theater shuffle of "7xx7", while memories of Nintendo loom large on "The Melody" and the ominous closing minutes of "Leech and Locust".
Mastered By – Robert Hadley. Written-By, Recorded By, Producer – The Mae Shi. Notes. Packaging: standard plastic jewel box case, clear tray, 8 page stapled cover booklet. HLLLYH (CD, Album, Promo, Car).
