0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

Wes Borland's Big Dumb Face (www.eattheday.com/bigdumbface) project was the beginning of the end for his career with Limp Bizkit. Released in 2001 on Fred Durst's god-awful Flawless Records, BDF's debut album "Duke Lion Fights the Terror" showcases the many talents of Wes that noone would ever witness on a Limp Bizkit album.

The opening track, "Burgalveist", is a high-speed death metal assault similar to something you'd hear on the latest Deranged CD. There is the obvious use of vocal effects and a drum machine, but the song is surprisingly good with sludge breakdowns, etc.

From there, the album takes many bizarre twists and turns that are not only interesting to hear, but also down-right funny. "Duke Lion" sounds like something straight out of Bonanza. "Kali is the Sweethog" would make many 80's New Wave artists proud. "Fightin' Stance" and "Rebel" sound like something from a spaghetti western. And of course, there's death metal. "Blood Red Head on Fire" and "Organ Splitter" are songs good enough to make Chris Barnes cry like a little bitch. Be sure to check out the drum breaks on "Organ Splitter". Fucking awesome.

Big Dumb Face has something for everyone, whether you like metal, pop, or even really bad country. It's a great album and I definitely think everyone should check it out. If this is what Wes could do all along, then you have to wonder why he ever wasted his time with Limp Bizkit. Reviewed by --Aborted Fetus Smasher 2.24.03
