CD Reviews

The closest you get to a real MoAM? show
Ralph Bodenner | Seattle, WA USA | 11/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Man or Astro-Man? are incredible live performers, and you realize it listening to this album. The goofy enthusiasm of Coco and the pure surf power of Starcrunch's ultra-reverbed guitar are what made this band great. The *real* MoAM? can be heard on Cowboy Playing Bomboro -- Starcrunch plays so tight and so fast, my jaw hit the floor the first time I heard this track. Birdstuff is a punk-rock freak of nature as usual on the drums, and Coco's bass comes through better on this album than in most others.Live Transmissions from Uranus is a must-have for any fan of modern surf rock, and the best document of MoAM? before they lost Brian Causey."
More Music, Less Talk
G. M. Elwell | Oklahoma City, OK United States | 02/04/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love MoAM. They're by far my favorite surf band and listening to them live is a treat. But on this album, while the music is unbelievably good, the back and forth between the band members is horrible.

You can't hear them talk and when you can, they're talking over each other. This is a case where less is more. The bit about dogs and cats being able to hear them sing would be funny if it didn't take three tries to get it out.

Still, awesome music if you can put up with some less-than-witty banter."
Best live album ever

"The best live album I've ever heard. Completely live, uncut: they leave in all the dialogue between songs. Check out their deep Space accents. Amazing performance, amazing sound"
