The album opener – « Trail » – gets straight to the point, revealing the true identity of Clownage and setting the tone for the rest of the album: punchy, agitated melodiousness. Tracks such as « The Game » evoke the American influence coming from bands such as the Foo Fighters – an influence found also in the high-energy « Apo » and its chanting chorus. Inspired equally by The Smashing Pumpkins, the foursome then reveal a more melancholic, poetic side with « Soma ». We then hear a parenthetical departure with « Tyson », the most stand-alone title on the album, which evokes the sulfurous grooves of Beck’s early albums. Trails then moves through audacious territory with tracks such as the high-impact stoner piece « I Am », and the Mars Volta-meets-Faith No More movement « Queen », and closes with the improvised « Candles in the Berry ».
