Rope or Bullets = Purr Bats + Tilly and the Wall

Sometimes I think bands are making music for the sole purpose of driving people to stand closer to speakers, with the result of never hearing anything again. Sadly, my dinky computer speakers are not that powerful. Bits and pieces of each song could be considered tolerable for listening to, but only if the purpose is to drown out someone who is much more annoying than a song that seems to last 20 minutes, but in reality, lasts just over three minutes. Rope or Bullets should take the idea “less is more” and create something worth the time spent cringing through this album.
