It is hard to believe that the guys in Heavy Heavy Low Low are not free jazz composers or classically trained metal scholars when you hear them attack their instruments. The band creates a densely layered collage of noise, imbued with the speediness of hardcore punk, the low crushing tones of death metal, the loose and dissonant playfulness of indie rock, and arrangements that hit multiple places at once dissolving into waves of chaos. As complex as the band's sound is, it is obviously more complex trying to explain it on paper. Heavy Heavy Low Low's debut, "Everything's Watched, Everyone's Watching," was produced by Casey Bates (Figure Four, Gatsby's American Dream).

this album is great from start to finish. the raw vocals of Robbie Smith goes perfectly hand in hand with the jittery and hectic music. it flows well from song to song which is what i look for most in an album. the only complaint i have about this cd is the length. but then again this music is not meant to be a marathon. anyone who is a fan of real music needs to buy this album.

this cd is great...even though they re-recorded most of there old songs. the quality is really good which explains the reason for re-recording. the only thing thats odd about this cd is that they didnt recored 'shannon' which seems to be there most poular songs. overall, worth your money!!
