Giant Squid, I love you. That goofy name, that frightening cover art, that promo sheet with the cheap horror film font type. I love you so much already that I donít realllllly think I want to listen to your CD. I donít realllllly want to listen to your CD because I think I might not like you as much as Iím hoping to. But I have to? Oh, itís not so bad. Your lead singer thinks heís Serj Tankian a wee bit too much, but the music is elaborate, textured and laid on thick. It ainít my thang, but damn if the concept-y-ness isnít likeable.
