"3:33" (Psychopathic / Smash Records; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Zug Izland's "3:33" starts out with a bang with its tight, fun and catchy tunes that really got my foot tapping. The music on this CD is is a bit techno mixed with rock and featuring a strange style of vocals that fits the music perfectly. 

However, there were a number of things about this CD that I simply did not like at all. First of all (and this is a minor complaint) the cover art is jumbled and confusing. Was the band's name "3:33" or "Zug Izland"? I couldn't tell at first glance. More importantly, the music contained on "3:33" is dark and depressing. Life is depressing enough without hearing it blasted out on my CD player. The overall grimness of this recording made it a bummer to listen to. That just doesn't work for me.

There were some things I genuinely enjoyed on "3:33" but, in the long run, I'm sad to report the bad outweighed the good.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
