"The music is a lot of fun. The songs jump between genres, featuring power pop, heavy metal, 80's pop, surf rock, and more, including a really lovely torch song by Dr. Hyde (as in, 'I want to set you on fire with a torch'). Itís all extremely well executed, and catchy as hell (the one-two punch of 'Science Fight' and 'Lab Girl' is pretty irresistible). "
- David Lartigue, daveexmachina.com

"C.O.G. has a warped and wonderful sense of humor, but, musically, the band is no joke -- the 14 tracks that actually are songs run the gamut of pitch-perfect genre imitations, including the Rush-like opener "I Think Therefore I Rock," the pop-punky "Evil Is Fun," the smooth swing number "Lab Coat" and the '50s-style rocker "Science Fight."
- Alison Fenterstock, The Times Picayune

"Overall this record is fun and highly entertaining." - Brian Serpas, Where Y'at Magazine

TECH NOTES:
Six years in the making, this album was produced, recorded, and mastered by the band at C.O.G.'s own studio / rehearsal lab in Harahan, Louisiana.  A hard disk recording, it was made using Cakewalk 9 and Cooledit 95, with sound cards by Lexicon and Creative Labs.  During tracking, we used a preamp by Presonus, an analog Mackie mixer, and mics by ElectroVoice, AKG, and Shure.  Guest musicians were once again recruited to star on several cuts.  This time the between-song material was scripted and recorded (very quickly) by the cast, all at different times, and edited together.

We consider this album to be our ultimate achievement... to date!
