While there are some who would argue Helmet’s prime time was in the heady days from 92’s ‘Meantime’ to 97’s swan song ‘Aftertaste’, since guitar-toting frontman Page Hamilton dragged Helmet’s filthy carcass back into action in 04, there have been some fine moments. ‘Seeing Eye Dog’ is undoubtedly one of them, despite Hamilton’s man on-the-edge vocal sounding rougher than a hobo who has not only necked the meths, but the bottle it came in. – Rock Sound
Points added for the tiered release options, including a tour laminate for the most devout, and sticking with the drill-press guitar thing. Points deducted for inventing nü metal — still more for songs that won’t let an audience forget it. – Spin
