'Wellsley's Philosophy' is the most striking moment on "Disqualifier." It opens inauspiciously with the concussive throttle of machinery, quickly gathering pieces of dander: the clink of pickaxes on steel, the rumble of locomotives, inaudible masculine shouts. The clinks accumulate, the shouts recede, Native American flutes interject, drums thunder through, distortion floods the scene, is chased out by equanimous synthesizers. There's a strong whiff of blue-collar, all-American mettle in the track, communicated with the evocative, concentrated intensity that characterizes professional advertising. A narrative of some sort clearly unites "Disqualifier"—why else would the names of characters recur in the titles?—but 'Wellsley's Philosophy,' taken as a single chapter, makes a greater showcase for Crumer's storytelling potential.
