though ‘acrobatic tenement’ may only be a blueprint for the band's later albums, it comes fully formed & as forceful as a bullet to the head.

cedric dixler's barked emotional ferocity is perfectly complemented by nimble dual guitars, while pall's bass snakes in & out of the heady mix. the result is a lurching masterpiece of an album that threatens to explode -- or implode -- at any moment. unlike most hardcore bands, at the drive-in know the value of subtlety, a trick they use to create an elaborate punk/metal soundscape of rhythms & tempo shifts. a true timeless masterpiece of oblique lyrical insights & furiously rocking good tunes.
