A place to start
Paul Nordseth | 3622 SVENE Norway | 12/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To explore Motorpsycho - doubtless one of the most challenging, innovative rock bands still active - it is not only advisable to start with Blissard, their most accessible album to date. It might even be a necessity if one wants get to grips with the bands formidable, fantastic and ferocious work. Placed somewhere between kraut-rock, progressive rock, jazz avantgardism and power pop, the Norwegian sometime-quartet, sometime-trio has stunned an European audience starved for intelligent music - yet they remain relatively unknown outside their hardcore audience.If more people had a taste of "Blissard", that could change. With absolute showstoppers such as "Nerve Tattoo", but also including more esoteric compositions such as "Nathan Daniel's Tune From Hawaii" (!) and "S.T.G.", this is both an album to sing along to and an album fairly representative of the band. Start here - and you won't stop until most of the Motorpsycho albums stand firmly on your livingroom shelf. Take it from one who's tried."
Beauty and noise perfectly blended once again

"I'm not sure if I have ever heard anything as good as the first four or five songs on Motorpsycho's Blissard. Sweet and funny pop melodies covered in experimental mud and noise as only Motorpsycho can do it. The rest of the album is brilliant as well, although it can't compete with the opening section. "Drug thing" and Greener are rock anthems that could be compared to any other song of the nineties. It doesn't matter if you're into rock or pop or even easy listening, this album covers it all and will give you what you need."
