I was pleasantly surprised by this release. The crunchier tracks like "Royal" and "CMND/CTRL" are really mosh-worthy & heavy as hell. There's no pointless guitar solos to be seen here. Just crushing power chord riffage which would come across brilliantly in a live environment. Vocalist Chino Moreno is very charismatic & leads the band brilliantly. Closer "This Place Is Death" is simply outstanding & is almost worth the purchase of this CD by itself. Unfortunately a couple of tracks in the second half of the album ("Sextape" in particular) let the band down a little with a hefty dosage of cheese. However the more I listen to this album the more it grows on me.
