Favorite Album

The Dillinger Escape Plan – Ire Works

First time you heard it

The moment when I first heard this magical symphony is lost to time. However, since that day, it has become a pillar, part of the foundation, of my destructive music palace.

How often do you listen to it?

Probably once every full moon or, whenever I take a long drive and I need my mind to rewind itself like a VHS tape.

Why is this your favorite album?

Being able to describe why this is my favorite album, would be like trying to explain the intricacies of the cosmic dinner. Simply put, it just is. There is something about the musical composition that makes me feel like I came out of ‘Apocalypse Now.’ From the opening, in your face throat punch that is “Fix Your Face” to the vocal performance on “Dead As History,” everything just makes sense to me. This album isn’t for everyone. But, if you give it a chance, it will make you feel like you took the red pill in the Matrix.

Which track would be your walk up music?

Easy — Milk Lizard. At least half of the 6.4 million listens on Spotify are from me.
