What is this? Explosive. Why? These guys are geniuses.

The Faint have this eerie buzz surrounding them. I'm a sucker for buzz. What surprises me is that the buzz is ringing out of the indie rock scene. What's the big deal, you ask? Well if you've heard the Faint, you'd know these guys are completely electronic, dark, almost gothy rock. But they do rock.

I love this album. It's more electronic than their past releases, but the programming on here is enormous. It keeps the kids in the clubs shakin what God gave them. Amen to that. It's about time we get some rump shaking in the indie scene that's been known for its stars, backpacks, apathy, shit talking, and standing around dropping names. Didn't we learn anything from "Fame"? Dancing solves all the world's problems. Duh!

Get this and shake that nasty rump. Baby got back.
