I reviewed this song for the full album review that I did on Rebelmouse not too long ago. I considered just copying that review here. I decided not to do that for a ton of reasons I won’t bother to go into. But one was I thought the existing review wasn’t much in the way of detail, so I’m starting over from scratch for this one.
ZS’s music is always an adventure, a lot of time it feels like an adventure in crazy land. Family Portrait is no different. There is a chaotic nature to this sound that works so freaking well. I think it’s the same thing that Manson had going for him back in the day when he was making music like Lunchbox. The dark overtones matched with the upbeat drum and guitar lines are nothing short of amazing. The carnival effects with that La la la stuff is so damn creepy it’s awesome. I’m a huge fan of the guitar work in this song. It’s just so completely spot on; fast, heavy and it doesn’t take over the song. The composition is straight flawless.
Though it does have some theatrical elements, metal fans shouldn’t shy away from this track. It’s got everything you want in a true metal track. Thunderous drums, killer guitar line, sweet bass rhythm and a bad ass vocal track. I would put this song on a list with the Carpenters because it’s so awesome.
