I checked out their website and saw them say this about one critical opinion:
A reviewer said "This is dreadful, absolutely dreadful" and referred to
Mr. Jones as the most annoying vocalist they'd ever heard.
Well, it certainly isn't pretty - but that's good. I'm not completely convinced
that it really is dreadful enough. It has enough dreadful elements to make you
believe that there is a real potential to shock and amaze. Some tracks just reek
of putrefaction and have real power. Others begin to sound like just parody.
But there is a danger of some music descending into novelty and parody - like the way The Darkness
are related to rock music for example. Certainly, if Muleskinner Jones are going for
the quirky and sick market then they/he will struggle to reach the heights that The Handsome Family
have claimed as their own. But, Concrete Swamp, Truckstop Funeral, and the Closing Theme can stand on their own
as great tunes to listen to as your world implodes.
