Say hello to the most unreviewable album of the year. Not literally, of course; who's ever heard of saying hello to a CD? Besides, that conversation would be a big waste of time: You: Hello, Human Animal. Nice to meet you. Human Animal: Skree!!!!Eeeeeeee!!Dunnnndunnnnn!!!SiSssss!!!!Rrreeejxlm!!!!!VxxxxBlorffffffffffsde!!!! Wolf Eyes is a noise band, see, and damn proud of it.
The departure of Aaron Dilloway from the Wolf Eyes ranks and his subsequent replacement, Mike Connelly, was one that didn’t phase many fans. Sure, Dilloway’s presence would be missed, especially onstage, but Connelly had proven himself more than capable of some bad ass, hair-raising music as part of Hair Police, amongst other one-offs and side projects. There was a contingent, however, sometimes vocal, that seemed certain that the shift in personnel had doomed the band, that it was the beginning of a descent into mediocrity, or worse, self-parody.
