Recording with howl-god Wino Weinrich again after decades, California's prototype doomsters examine the luded-out life: Most literally in "Dependence," about waking up sick and injured, and the subsequent instrumental coda "Withdrawal," one of many passages where Dave Chandler's mildew-toned guitar soloing enters a delirious white-noise realm. Add an opening kvetch aimed at an unnamed "them," the more serene instrumental "Vertigo," and two toxic foretellings of environmental dystopia, and you've got a wobbling downer of an album worthy of the pharmaceutical depressant it's named after.
