We gave it an A

Named after the Jewish prayer for the dead, Kaddish is an ambitious, experimental album about the horrors of the Holocaust that blends an array of styles, including classical, industrial, and even heavy metal. Sparse piano lines and Hebrew chants drift solemnly through the mix, only to be consumed by militant beats and Nazi speech samples. Sobering and utterly engaging.
