Converge - Jane Doe
This is all extreme and everything, but it lacks the groove I'm looking for. Soilent Green for example is just as extreme, but they know how to break it down. This is supposed to be a landmark album. They do the dissonant hardcore thing that reminds me of Drive Like Jehu. There's extreme note-i-ness and mathy craziness and it gets quite and loud. I'll bump this thing from a 3 to a 4 because the dynamics and beatdown factor is high. Unfortunatley the groove factor is low.
