"the hole year" is one of those lackthrow packages that doesn't make itself all about 'noise', but rather uses it here and there as a part of the compositions. 9 of the 11 tracks containing lyrics and several vocal styles are more structured in a traditional sense than what you might expect from an artist most working in the 'noise' genre. some tracks are more experimental, a couple old school industrial, some bear the mark of power electronics, while a couple are harsh noise, though it seems it all has its own unique flavour. almost a concept album, almost a chronicle of a particular time period, the pained thoughts of the damaged.
