Ride it out, I guess. At least I'm not the only one here. Plenty of freaks. Smells weird though. Must be gas. Whatevs. RIYL: The Residents, Macula Dog, clowns poking your dreams

C limate Change is an album about nothing. It hears nothing, speaks nothing, and sees nothing. It could be about partying, but even that subject is given such perfunctory treatment that what's left hardly rewards participation. It exists simply because it does.
