Moving always from global and historical to very personal, THE TRILOGY is a more intricate, energetic contradiction of hopelessness. THE TRILOGY is a most intricate, energetic, contradiction of genre, 3 songs referencing the marriage, breakup, and reuniting of a couple (real live friends) present a searing, pessimistic, profound hope for the world. These 3 songs are the centerpieces of the CD in a way, but they are thrown among other songs so varied and strong and sad and funny that the sense of unity is being overcome by the sense of variety all the time but the sense of unity then overcomes the sense of variety so it can start again, a mobile intricate energetic contradiction. The genres which are molded include punk, acoustic wedding song, country, rocker, heavy rock, this song is for you melodic gesture--on and on. The band proudly announces that there's a type of music here for everyone to dislike. Nobody in the band, for example, likes 'Against The Law,' but they know it belongs here, and they are wrong anyway.
