New Releases: Title cut holds ‘longest’ title in Billboard history

By MIK DAVIS,

Under wraps since 2008, "Fear Inoculum" may be everything Rock hinges on at the moment. The over 10-minute title cut (now the longest song in Billboard history to hit the Top 100 singles) features psychedelic tablas, tense Prog Rock drums, and lyrics that read like Haiku for Modern Metalheads.

"The Center Won't Hold" is more synth-heavy and strangely danceable than previous S/K.
