I wrote a review of the new record from The Cutthroats 9. Chris Spencer’s still got it.
The dis-ease keeps roiling. The first half of Dissent manages to repeatedly mulch your innards over and over. Familiarity is no defense; the feeling of having a rototiller in your liver for song after song returns with every spin. “Eraser” and “Hit The Ground” do an excellent job of making you nothing more than scrambled viscera, while “Dissension” teases you by taking out the tiller and putting everything back – if in the wrong order – and then kicking you repeatedly in the head.
