Critical review of "Head Cold"...

"Head Cold" is one of those altered states that you think isn't going to be so bad when you first start getting it, but as the state progresses, you see that in fact, you were wrong. One of many states in the highly-unacclaimed "Sickness" series, it seems "Head Cold" would at least be a little more light-hearted than some. It's not as serious as "Cancer," or even "Pneumonia", so you'd think it'd be easy to get through. Heavy performances by nose, throat, and ears, however, weigh down the rest of the body of the cast, simply sucking the energy right out of them. Nose's performance is so over-blown, it hurts just to think about it. And just when you're hoping it's about to end, it simply picks up again, and you know you're in for a longer haul than you were hoping.

As a long-time critic of altered states, I've never been fond of any of the pieces in the "Sickness" series. Sure, there's a lot of them, but none of them are really any good. The best one can hope for is that they are short. I still advise you to stay away from "Head Cold" because it's really not worth the time and suffering it puts you through. Go and try something in the "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll" series if you want to have a good time. I don't think you'll be disappointed by those. "Head Cold" will just leave you feeling down and out.
