"The Jesus Lizard always had the trajectory of a band that was always going to matter" - Steve Albini "Every generation has its exciting band, and the Jesus Lizard are it.

They make Elvis Presley look like a kewpie doll." - Timothy Leary "DOWN is classic the Jesus Lizard in many ways, captured when the band is playing at it's absolute tightest, filled with odd, unpredictable turns and nuances.

DOWN reveals one of the band's greatest strengths: their skill at inventive arrangements.

Punk-influenced music has never sounded so compositionally exciting. This is the true thrill of the Jesus Lizard: you may not know where the lumbering, bloodletting beast will go, but you can be sure it will take you some where uncharted" -Matt Diehl
