“The Fear Is What Keeps Us Here”

Brutal, punishing, and a step in a new direction for the band. This LP finds Zao teaming with Steve Albini to create a deeper and more gritty message. The vocals are as noisy as ever, but the lyrics behind them is what is really special (give the lyric sheet a look). This might be the album that when Zao winds up that people will look back upon and declare it pivotal and defining in the group’s legacy.

Grade: B+

Favorite Track: It’s Hard Not to Shake with a Gun in Your Mouth
