"I hate this"

My first reaction to Dredg's "Chuckles And Mr. Squeezy". I was initially really disappointed with the unexpected direction Dredg decided to take with this, their 5th album, and certainly the most polarizing of their career. The paucity of Dino's drumming in favor of a programmed beat is likely to sit very poorly with many fans of prior works like 2002's "El Cielo" and 2005's "Catch Without Arms", but for those with patience there is still much to like in "Chuckles And Mr. Squeezy". This is far and away the most accessible album Dredg have put out to date, with none of the seque tracks that featured so heavily on 2009's "The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion". None of these songs would sound out of place on Top 40 radio, and while that sounds like a slight, most of the tracks have an interesting identity and I found that they were real growers. Songs like "Upon Returning" and the "The Thought of Losing You" are major standouts, whereas your mileage may vary for songs like "The Tent" (which grew on me heavily) and "Down Without A Fight"--which sounds like no song Dredg has ever done before. The first half is markedly stronger than the second, but still worth hearing. Again, I wouldn't use this album to introduce people to what has become my favorite band--but Dredg is all about experimenting with their sound and this is at the very least an interesting diversion. I am really excited to hear what Dredg does next, as I would like to believe they still have a few classics left in them. Only time will tell.
