Crowbar are part of that whole NOLA metal thing, and have inbred with such bands as Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual, and Sourvein. And while I'm not much of a fan of that whole "scene", I do believe that Crowbar stands head and shoulders above the rest of the pack musically, especially on this, their debut album. Crowbar had much more of a Melvins/Harvey Milk sound than their Jock Rock contemporaries, and hence, are much more listenable. Plus, they first came to public attention on an episode of Beavis And Butthead (like so many other metal bands of the 90's). B&B were stoked on Crowbar because they were all really fat and their singer (Kirk) looked like he was taking a dump whilst singing. How rad is that?

Alternate cover art from Spitfire re-release (Crispin Glover???):

Why do some labels make it a point to re-release albums with new and extremely shitty cover art? Isn't the original cover art as much a part of the album as the music?

That new cover is beyond terrible, it practically screams: "Welcome to 1996! COMPUTERS."

Totally 1996. The sad part is that it came out in 2003.
