CD of the Day: ‘Source Tags + Codes,’ … And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (2002)

I bought this album on the promise that Trail of Dead would be a satisfying substitute for At the Drive-In, the band that broke up just as I found out I loved them.

That promise was misleading. These guys sound like ATDI only in the fact they’re caustic, loud rock. Otherwise,Trail of Dead don’t come close.

Many people love this album. I do not. Much of it is noisy, tuneless dreck, with no hint of melody or vocal appeal.

Grade: D+

Favorite Track: None

Least Favorite Track: Pick one
