CD Review: The Link, by Gojira (2003)
Often sounding like infants clobbering as loudly as possible on whatever pots and pans they can find in the kitchen, Gojira's The Link is repetitive, noisy, incessant and basic.
But for the most part The Link consists of angry blasts of cacophony, with insufficient substance to register as anything more than an unwelcome locomotive.
