Your father was right: building character IS important. That's especially true in music, where songs and bands can start to blend into a graying background of monotonous similitude. Bellringer doesn't have that problem. As noted in the previous review of their full-length album Jettison, the songs have a distinct Texan personality unlike much else out there, and "Inner Freak" is a perfect example. It's an Elmore Leonard or Joe R. Lansdale character come to life: slinky, an air of danger, and unquantifiably cool. The last two minutes unexpectedly change things up from desert rock riffs and male/female harmonies to jazz guitar and flutes, instantly transporting the listener from some El Paso watering hole to poolside with Robert Evans in 1970 Beverly Hills. Does it work? Oh yes, yes it does.

Deutrom has this to say about "Inner Freak"

When you open up the the third eye and have a taste of the magic square,
Quetzalcoatl starts running around inside a pyramid....
and then a situation comes up in the garden of eden.
