I would say that if you are looking to check out the Locust, steal their cds off of your friends and copy all the songs onto your computer and then burn an 80 track cd because paying 15 bucks for 10 minutes of music does not satisfy my money to music ratio.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Locust but not because (to quote some bloke above) they are "more hardcore" than every other band. Just because they can fit their message into a 40 second burst and their live shows are unbelievable.

In the end, don't purchase this cd unless you are rich.

First off, the Locust are completely great. They are good musicians and you can make out the words after a few listens. Best powerviolence punk I've ever heard. They are a sonic assault to your eardrums, and other senses might be tantalized as well. I suggest the self-titled own over this own (personal opinion, doesn't mean anything) but you should probably hear these guys.

I own the vinyl puzzle pack collectors edition of this album. The Locust are one of my favorite bands. I like this era of The Locust the most. I think it's the mix, in Plague Soundscape it's sometimes hard to hear all instruments. Anyway, in my opinion this stuff is their best, I love how the synth sounds in Flight Of The Wounded Locust, and they're past their powerviolence era (listen to songs like Red). It's also the last record with Dave Astor on drums and Gabe Serbian on guitar. It has some great songs, I always seem to get the synth part from "Get Off the Cross..." stuck in my head. "This is Radio Surgery" and "Gluing Carpet To Your Genitals..." are great songs as well. Also, the song "Flight Of The Wounded Locust" is their longest before Safety Second and New Erections. Which has some of THE COOLEST synth.

Buy this album. I know it may cost 10 dollars for 10 minutes but it's awesome and completely worth it.

I'm probably the only person who liked this better than the Plague Soundscape. I just thought the songs on this album had a little bit more depth. Alas the Hypocondriacs are here to wait with you in the lobby and Glueing Carpet to you Genitals does not make you a Cantelope are probably my favorite of all Locust songs. This was right before their old drummer Dave Astor left to be with Catil Decapitation and Gabe took over on drums. I thought this was by far Daves best drum work, and even though Gabe is better....Dave was pretty rockin on this album. To bad catil decapitation kinda stinks. This album has an insane keyboard song that is just stupid catchy. This Radio is Surgery and Ripped Wall of Miniabbs and also high points. If you like The Locust, you definitely want this. If you don't....why are you reading this? Seriously?

Listening to this cd is like...I can't even describe it. It's like riding a motorcycle through a jungle that's on fire with giant robotic bugs swiping at your head. Or something of that nature. These vocalists don't really sing, I think. They scream and wretch over the top of lightning fast blast beats, wholly dischordant guitar riffs, and some freaky melodic synths and keyboards. This music is hands down the most psychotic stuff I've ever listened too. This stuff will blow your mind, whether you like the music or not. By the way, about 90 percent of the songs clock in at under 1 minute. This cd is pure sonic insanity. I still don't even know what to think about it.

Ok, if you dont like loud music or punk then you certainly dont want to buy this cd. The locust is definitely the craziest band in the world, louder than anyone, and more hardcore than anyone else. This is some of the coolest music ever, even though the band has pretty much no talent other than making a lot of noise. The vocalist serves his purpose and is really great, although its impossible to make out what hes saying (this cd comes with lyrics!). One of the best things about this band is the fact that among all of the screaming, they found a place where keyboards and synthesizers fit in really well. It adds to the artistic value of the cd (there is hardly any), and it makes it really funny. Its almost as if you can hear the locusts buzzing in the background. As for my favorite song, that question doesnt really apply to this cd, since all 11 tracks sound almost exactly the same. Also, if you are looking for quantity over quality, then this cd is not for you. The entire cd is roughly ten minutes long (thats right, 40 second songs). Overall, this cd is really cool if youre looking for something to appreciate in a different way.
