A preview of better albums
W. K. Miller | NC, USA | 10/01/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a CD including both Bailter Space's album TANKER and their earlier EP NELSH. There are a few good tracks here, but it's not nearly as good as some of their later work, particularly VORTURA. It's similar to My Bloody Valentine and the JPS Experience, with a noisy, wall-of-guitars sound, but a little more angular and jerky. It's true, the NELSH EP does resemble New Wave or mid 1980's pop to some degree. This combined CD shows glimmers of genius, but at times the songs are just not what they could be.Bailter Space are from New Zealand, and among them are several former members of the Gordons. They sound a little bit like other New Zealand bands of the 80s and 90s like The Clean, The Chills, and the Bats. An optional purchase, except for Bailter Space completists. If you own nothing by the band, you'd do better to start with their CD VORTURA.ken32
2nd Best album by the sonic surgeons of Bailter Space
W. K. Miller | 11/26/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD includes the first E.P. Nelsh, which isn't so great, very 80's new wavey. But Tanker is guitar destruction and salvation. "Grader Spader" features guitar shredding that is on the level of Hendrix, and at the same time other songs are so melodic that they sound otherworldy, an antecedent to Robot World. Excellent production job from Brent Mclachlan who would go on to be the drummer in Bailter Space, although Hamish Kilgour is excellent on this album. In terms of sound, vaguely like My bloody valentine but better, and released I think before that bands landmark works. Check this out."
