Psychedelic touches throughout the album are added by electric guitar solos and high-pitched background voices à la Queen. "Don’t Talk Me Down" and "The Witch’s Plea" lead the album, leaving listeners to think this could be just as brilliant as its albums of the past. But a yawn starts with "Marilene."
Johnny Society has reached a point in its career when an album isn’t considered "forward-thinking." The group, which received the 2002 Independent Music Award for best new band, hasn’t reached a plateau with this release – just a side-step along their journey.
