    The Union Underground aim to make you extremely uncomfortable. Their confrontational, profanity-laced lyrics, creepy vocals, claustrophobic arrangements, and churning, angular riffs are all designed to evoke a bleak, post-apocalyptic urban landscape. Equal parts hard rock, punk-metal, and industrial, the Union Underground's sound is a heavy, punishing one, their songs full of distaste for modern society and its hypocritical mores.
    This might make the group's music too much too take, were it not for the fact that their Alice In Chains-derived harmonies, post-grunge guitar hooks, and relentlessly hooky song structures offset the aural onslaught effectively. They lace these tracks with enough listenability to enable even casual listeners to brave the storm that is AN EDUCATION IN REBELLION.

    Q (8/01, p.142) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...The refreshingly short grunge album....Dated, but enormous fun..."
    CMJ (7/31/00, p.25) - "...The marriage of metal and industrial styles...with most songs creating a dynamic tension between dance rhythms and mosh pits..."
