It's a long time ago, when I awaited an album with so much excitement like in the case of the second release of SPINESHANK. In the forefield there had been rumours that said, that it would be a milestone in the alternative Metal genre. But you always have to be carefully, so I tried to listen neutrally to it but the laurels were justified.
Their debut "Strictly Diesel" had been already an surpassing disc and "The Height Of Callousness" is the consequential sequel and furthermore a huge improvement. SPINESHANK set emotions free on this masterpiece like it was rarely heard before. The mighty production, made by Garth "GGGarth" Richardson, illustrates the songs in all their glory and completes one of the ten best "Nu-Metal" records in 2000.
Concerning this great album, the competitors must be scared, because with "The Height Of Callousness", SPINESHANK rise up to the champions league of the genre but the target seems not yet achieved. (Online June 14, 2003)
