A Perfect Circle Perfect Self

Ex-members of Life of Agony and Stuck Mojo have returned to bother us with their new project, Stereomud. Capitalising on the groove/angst core that is so very in vogue these days, Stereomud is predictable, boring and irrelevant. They manage to get a few cool Sabbath riffs in here and there ("Old Man" is almost a good song), but one still thinks of Machine Head, Stuck Mojo, Godsmack and the Ozzfest while listening to this. One is getting very tired of thinking about these things; it's time for a new trend. (Columbia)
