CD Reviews

My favorite album of 1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I never heard of this band before reading a review which drove me to search this out. As a fan of their influences (Stereolab, the Fall, early P.I.L.), and a lover of droning and cryptic rock, this album combines an homage to these groups into a peanut-butter-meets-chocolate (remember the Reese's commercials way back?) that collides the misleadingly-billed-as-fragile English female lilt-litany and the gruff, over-the-top Scots anarchist bloke vocal styles into a sweet-and-sour concoction that's heavy on the ears but somehow uplifting even as it batters you into cringing before its aural assault. It is, upon repeated listenings, layered and complex beneath its initially monolitihic surface sound, and I highly recommend it. Not an album I would listen to everyday, but when I'm in the mood for a good bash of the old eardrums which is smarter than most any metal and more innovative than what passes for alternative these days, this is just the album the shrink prescribed."
The best thing since bread
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Amazing hybrid of dual-gendered voice interplay and mildly minimal but wonderful music. I've bought it twice."
