It's the only Argyle Park album re-released in 2005, with bonus songs and additional linear notes in the booklet. It should be noted that Argyle Park was a project of Klayton, who's been standing for Celldweller
since a few years. Celldweller is Klayton
but Argyle Park consisted of a few musicians to list: Buka, Tommy Victor
(Prong), Jim Thirlwell (Foetus), Lauren Boquette and Marco Forcone (Drown
) or ex-Circle of Dust
musicians, a band Klayton was during the 90's in as well: Daren Klank Diolosa
, Chris Donahue and OG/John. They produced one of the most significant albums on industrial-metal scene.
Music included isn't catchy in any way, you have to listen to the songs several times to get the idea. Next it'll become your drug, and the best songs to start the addiction from are Agony, Gutterboy and Headscrew. Besides heavy guitar driven songs there is also are pure industrial track I Am I Am with weird monologues and effects, gentle, even female-esque Circle, soundtrack-like Refuge and a song with jazz add-ons called Leave Me Alone, very memorable to me.
There are also two songs very Prong-like, I mean Doomsayer and Misanthrope but a presence of Tommy Victor isn't strange that much regarding those tracks. It's a pity it was the only one album by Argyle Park but luckily such a remarkable.
