The dichotomy that is Poland's Metal Mind Productions continues to boggle the mind. A label that consistently releases classy live DVDs from prog bands as diverse as Riverside, SBB, RPWL and DeeExpus — as well as new studio albums from the likes of Satellite, Osada Vida and Believe — also reissues in limited quantities such diverse forgotten titles and never-gonna-be-classics by the gruff nu-metal trio My Ruin and Irish goofballs Therapy?
Here, then, is the latter band's tenth album, a noisy and sloppy mix of Nirvana grunge, Ramones punk, Soundgarden metal and irreverent humor released in 2004. Recently pared at the time to a bass/drums/guitar trio, Therapy? plowed through 13 songs in less than 40 minutes and sang lines like "I wanna get laid by the C.I.A./I'm on my way to the U.S.A." Therapy? formed in the late Nineties, went through several different musical phases and record labels, and remains active today.
The world could have survived without a limited-edition 1,000 copies of a digipack version of Never Apologise Never Explain. But the mere fact that it now exists is no doubt comforting to some listeners addicted to Therapy?
