Yes, I just realized that this has got to be one of my favorite album-opening tracks of the last 10 years. It becomes pretty clear when you find yourself going back to The Ruiner and any initial hesitation of whether that having been a good choice are immediately obliterated upon the first minute or so into this monster of a track. It's like a home-coming every time, as really ought to be the case with any outstanding album. Bliss.
How is this the first time i am hearing this? Holy fucking christ on a shitstick this is great. Julie's voice is just incredible. I actually heard Battle of Mice before this band, and I loved her on there as well. Simply great
