Cope turns his stark raving gaze on the eco-horrors of automobiles. Nobody else could write "Don't Call Me Mark Chapman" or "Paranormal in the West Country," which is a good or bad thing depending on your taste for English eccentrics. As a whole, this evokes, appropriately enough, the morbid fascination of a highway pile-up. 1/2 --Jeff Bateman

Not His Best Work...But Still VERY Strong
Steven E. Wilson | San Gabriel, CA United States | 01/22/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"While this is not Julian's best album, it certainly does contain a couple of his best songs, "Don't Call Me Mark Chapman" and "Ain't But the One Way". Copey is starting to get cranky on this record and he's got a lot to venting to do. In a lot of ways Autogeddon is like his newer Citizen Cain'd release, Julian picks his targest and guns them down. The only problem that I have with Autogeddon is it's inconsistency. While I can appreciate songs like "STARCAR" and "Ain't No Gettin Round Getting Round" they don't quite fit in with the intensity of the other tracks.
If you are new to Julian Cope's music I wouldn't start with Autogeddon. Try St Julian or Fried and then move into the more dangerous teritory. And be sure to bring your head."
