"Song for the Departed" bites a Nirvana-like guitar jangle, then tries to get punky with it. "I hate you/Everything about you/Fuck yooooouuu," singer-guitarist Adam Hines bleats, falling far short of Seattle, further still from 2003, and landing deep in Ugly Kid Joe territory. Equally ineffective is Phestur's take on the blues standard "In the Pines (Where Did You Sleep Last Night)," a track that leaves us wondering if the homage is to Leadbelly or Cobain. "I can't take this anymore," Hines whimpers on "In Youth." Neither can we.
