CD Reviews

Rock and roll is on the lam
(5 out of 5 stars)

"and you've caught up to it right here. both monorchid albums are great. this is lower fi than 'let them eat' but, after a year of preferring 'let them eat', I have finally decided that this is the better of the two records. The dual guitar attack of this band rivals sonic youth at the height of their powers; and nowhere is it more apparent than on this record. detuning, dissonance and an otherwise absence of effects make the perfect backdrop to the real r&r melodicism and drive this band has. In 'who put out...' I hear the stones ('alias directory'), bo didley ('abyss') & something like late '50s influences, perhaps the kingsmen ('x marks the spot'). Still this band takes r&r and aggro and does something sincere with it. rock with both intensity and balance still exists, but you have to dig DEEP in the haystack of the infoverse to find it. lucky you to have found it right here, a sharp needle in the proverbial haystack"
This cd kills Good Charlotte
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Contrary to my fellow reviewers I think this cd is actually better that "Let them Eat..." I'm not really sure why, but this cd has a overall feel that is slightly less abrasive yet still full on the rocking out scale. Standout tracks are "A Was For Anarchy" and the instrumental "What We Need is More than This." In my opinion one of the best instrumental tracks this side of a Fugazi LP (and that is saying ALOT). For anyone who is into the current MTV "punk" scene of Good Charlotte and their club of cashed-in image "punks", pick this album up. It will make you realize what fools the current crop of pretenders are."
