Efrim has more in common with Charlie Manson than physical appearance.   :-)

I was thinking more "Leader of a crazy hippie cult of drug enthusiasts who believe in radical anarcho-communist ideals".

They do have a few key differences though, like that one of them makes really bad music and the other doesn't and one of them kills celebrities and there unborn babies and the other hasn't (yet).

Ah, that's what we've been doing wrong - instead of uniting the workers to overthrow the capitalist class and establish a system of free and federated collectives which would collectively decide upon matters affecting them, we should have been killing celebrities!

Actually, Charles Manson made some remarkably good music and he never killed anyone.  It's not even clear that he told anyone to kill Sharon Tate or if his followers were just that stupid.  Popular theory suggests that they thought they would find the Beach Boys' music producer in that house, as Manson was friends with the Beach Boys and claims they stole some of his songs.

I do tend to agree with a sentence which has not been over ruled. Charles Manson was crazy man, cmon! Seriously, he thought the beatles song Happiness Is A Warm Gun, was a plea for America to take up Arms! Any sane five year old would realise that songs about fucking.

So I finally actually saw the LOST trailer that uses a bit of Born Into Trouble... in it (right before the season premire last week) and all I have to say to the people on other boards who have been vilifying Efrim for this decision - Get a fucking sense of perspective.  It wasn't "20 seconds of music".  It was more like five seconds of music and it took me a minute to even recognise the song, despite having listened to that album hundreds of times.

Lord, people can be so stupid.

I had probably seen that commercial several times and never noticed it until I read about the people bitching. Eh. Let em have it--there's like, what, 30 people in that band? It has to be pretty hard to eat for them.


Also, Charles Manson's music was pretty great, you guys is whack

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I think this album improves ten fold with each listen. BlindBlindBlind is pure bliss, can't stop listening to it. His voice reminds me of Shane McGowan of The Pogues.

I'm really torn on his voice. For some passages it works perfectly, but there are lots of moments where he goes off key and it just drives me up the wall. The beginning part of blindblindblind is the most egregious offender here.

Also I know diction is not exactly the most important thing about singing but half the time it sounds like his mouth is full of peanut butter and novocaine.

I think it bothers me because the lyrics, such as I can make out, are quite good and I'd like to be able to understand more of them.

You know, I completely agree, sometimes I feel that his vocals can be a tad unnecessary when he does his vocal ornament, the one when his voice all of a sudden gets really high if you know what I'm talking about. It never seems on key. I like his voice most of the time but that thing he does sometimes feels over done. Don't get me wrong though, this band is incredible.

I'm interested to see how the vocals translate in a live setting. I'm a little bit worried to be honest. I like the vocals, and I quite like the lyrics, most of the time but there are definitely those moments where it gets unpleasant. Who knows though. Maybe they'll be playing a lot of older stuff too (although I like "This is Our Punk Rock" best).
