This album get better and better everytime e listen to it. There is more under the surface than meets the eye (or ear). It is a good asskicking album and in a way i think it is as good as "Screamager" or even better.

Heavy...

Crooked Timber is heavy! Period. It may not be for those looking for something that is accessible but are into the bass, drum, and overall guitar feel. Its an album filled with expression, experimenting with hooks, beats, and bass lines. The first song kicks major butt, and the rest follow quite nicely. It is nice to hear something more mellow, and experimental on Magic Mountain. Don't be shy on checking these blokes out. Thanks.

They Say All Music Guide

There was a point when Therapy? were one of the biggest “buzz bands” in Europe — thanks in part to seemingly nonstop coverage in such publications as Kerrang! and Metal Hammer. But the buzz eventually dissipated, as Therapy? in the modern age don’t necessarily storm the charts with each new release, but still retain a sizable following. With Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill on board as producer, Therapy? unveiled their tenth studio album overall, 2009′s Crooked Timber, which leans more toward the punk/alternative side of things rather than riff-happy metal (and on “I Told You I Was Ill,” sounds comparable to Gill’s band). In fact, think vintage Helmet and you’re not far off from such album highlights as “Enjoy the Struggle” and “Bad Excuse for Daylight.” And on the title track, it sounds as if Therapy? have managed to channel both Sonic Youth and Joy Division into a single track. Ten albums down the line and Therapy? still play like they mean it, as evidenced by the arrival of Crooked Timber. – Greg Prato
