Andrew Pearson Unfortunately, "Angle of Attack" is not the pterodactyl ride on acid that was its cousin, "Permanent Fatal Error." It has moments of untethered punk/hard-rock brilliance, which fly just close enough to the sun, but occasionally it melts into flapping puddles of such ambient stupidity as the "X-Echo" tracks. I may judge this garage-made affair harshly, but considering how its godlike younger brother lit up my life, I give it a regrettable "decent" grade. A dozen-odd terrific songs abide, though! Favorite track: Angle Of Attack.

Kyler Noble Spectacular lost Grunge gem as far as i'm considered. Jack Endino is a god. I only wish I could get my hands on the Endgame version of this release so that i could hear even more of his spaced out paradoxical prog/punk take on the great Seattle Sound Favorite track: Create What You Fear.

Track Name: Salvation
I went to find myself salvation
But nothing they said made sense to me
Strange things were happening everywhere I looked
People were talking in tongues
"Guilt by existence" they seemed to all say
Pointing their fingers at me

Nothing made sense
Leave me alone
What could I do
But stand up and be on my way

I went to find myself salvation
But people tried to take $ from me
They wouldn't let me have any fun at all
Everything seemed to be WRONG
Oddly enough though I tried to be cool
They seemed to be scared of my mind

Nothing made sense
Leave me alone
What could I do
But stand up and be on my way

I went to find myself salvation
But these crazy people wouldn't let me exist
People around me were ranting and raving
Seemed that my whole life was sin
The only way I could satisfy them
Was to turn off my brain and give in

Nothing made sense
Leave me alone
What could I do
But stand up and be on my way

Track Name: Find The Key
I looked inside myself and realized my life was money-making
While there outside myself were other things free for my taking
I had to ask myself just why I'd locked myself inside this prison
There was no answer there, the other people thought that this was heaven

I cut and run to see if there was hope I'd find the key
I'd find the key

I cut and run to see if there was hope I'd find the key
Now they've locked it from inside, I stand out here
I cannot hide, I cannot hide

My life is better now, I feel so much older now
But different
Those people that I knew betrayed themselves and never grew at all

I cut and run to see if there was hope I'd find the key
Now they've locked it from inside, I stand out here
And wonder why
I wonder why
