Few things in life are more mind-numbingly dull than hearing stoned people talk about how stoned they are. One of the few duller things is, perhaps, and barring some very notable exceptions, hearing them sing about it. I'll admit that Connoisseur raised half a smile with the "Earth Crisis if they smoked weed and listened to Spazz" line in the press release, and that the combination of sloppy d-beats, sludge and heavy, metalized Apartment 213 brutality has some merit, but that's about as far as it goes. The music itself is lazily so-so and the goofy lyrics cut it all off at the knees, all of which makes for something boring, silly and less a sped-up ode to 'Jerusalem' than a powerviolent take on 'Because I Got High'.
