CD Reviews

Mark Champion | San Antonio, TX United States | 07/24/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OH yeah. Gone done gone and come back. And if you can listen to "Freeny" without breaking into a dopey grin then you are down indeed and had better avoid sharp objects and mirrors. And just when you think "Smoking Gun In Wasco" (sic!) has practically no melody at all you notice that there's this weird repetition thing going on with the guitar, like some kind of sample, man, and. . .and. . .well, Greg Ginn has never sounded better and his new rhythm section (Steve Sharp and Gregory Moore) is right there with him. Prolific dude, Ginn, what with this revamped Gone and all his solo stuff and Confront James to boot. Way beyond Black Flag, way beyond gone and words and into another something, way way gone away."
Virtually Unlistenable

"That's right. Virtually unlistenable and incredible good. It goes right up to the line. How many times is he going to play that riff? Just when you think it's exhausted, or you're exhausted, there's a variation--exactly the right one. The album's an aquired taste, but worth it. Angular, jagged, convulsive, controlled, constrained. It focuses in on a very narrow musical spaace and explores it with great intensity and imagination. You start off not being able to live with it, and before you know it, you're addicted to some of the most innovative instrumental work by today's most important rock guitarist."
