Today's 12 O'Clock Track, "Headache," is the album's opener. Just a few hairs past two minutes in length, it's a lesson in booming and expansive noise rock. The drumming is solid and powerful, the guitar playing is dissonant and blanketing (while still riff based and weird), and the bass sounds like a semi-trailer truck riding alongside you. It certainly leans a little on the early-90s Sub Pop catalog, but if you see that as a crutch, well, then you're kind of an idiot.
