Lethargy is perhaps the most frenzied, insanely technical band I've heard since the very early days of Watchtower -- among more recent bands, only The Dillinger Escape Plan (more hardcore-based, and even more chaotic) is in the same ballpark. Every song on It's Hard To Write With A Little Hand contains a dizzying array of ever-changing riffs and tempo changes. The vocals are kind of a death/hardcore hybrid, though in this band they take a back seat to the music. One of the most musically intense bands to emerge in quite awhile.

With the release of Discography '93-'99, which includes the album along with various demos/singles/assorted tracks, the book has been closed on this brilliant band. Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor are now in Mastodon.
