"There's No 666 in Outer Space " is one of those tricky albums. I mean this in the sense that the band is insanely talented, and every song is obviously really amazing.
But at the same time, not every song is a hit. Not every song gets you Super excited to be listening.
I would say around 80% of the songs on the Album make me feel awesome, and the other few I am fairly Apathetic towards. But enough of how I feel.
What did I like about the Album? Well I think it isn't even necessary to mention Zack Hills incredibly over-the-top drumming technique.
What may be necessary to mention is the new use of Vocals. In earlier albums Hella did not have any vocals to back up the insano-complex rhythms. Not only have they added vocals, but have tried something new and have come up with a way to make them easier to follow as a band.
Another thing that separates Theres No 666 In Outer Space from any other Hella albums is the fact that it is their only LP to feature them as a full, 5 piece band.
So now you may be wondering...is it good?
Yes. Yes it is good. The album is truly incredible, and my greatest fear is that someday someone will ask me to Tab out these insanely complex songs.
So what's the problem? The problem is...it's almost...too amazing. Heim and Hill obviously don't care what other people think of their music (A huge Plus) but for the average listener,There's No 666 in Outer Space will seem unremarkable (but it is Remarkable).
I think the album either is for you, or it is not for you, end of story. So check it out!

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
