Album Art: 

Meatbodies' second release is a concept album that is easy to listen to and even easier to tune out. The opening track begins with the sounds of birds chirping and fades into a pleasant, but repetative guitar riff that goes on for far too long. The lyrics, although whimsical and enjoyable, show no evidence of a coherent storyline. None of the tracks truly stand out in a significant way, but all of them have an easy-on-the-ears fuzzy psychadelic rock sound. "Kings", "Creature Feature" and the title track are the more compelling tracks; the rest of the album feels more like one giant song. Overall, it is a decent album. 3 stars. ***
