Everything is Dead and Gone (Metropolis)
by Chris Best
No, not everything is dead. I’m doing OK. I had a life-affirming reaction to this CD: I realized that I didn’t have to keep listening to it. It wasn’t as liberating as quitting my job and moving across the country – it’s not even on the same page, but it does make me realize that for all of my bad choices in this life, I never decided “Hey! I’m gonna start me a really crappy industrial band called Crocodile Shop and put out some records.” Fuck these guys.
