Synopsis

Album Description
Neil and Jennifer return kicking with a rottingly fresh album of fuzzy, post-nineties, numb-rockin' blues for today's ever-growing, out-of-touch set. Skin-shred of the filler, raw-stripped, guit-ramming, and chorus wringing, abscessed modern bounce. Nine juicy, extensive tracks. We rabid.

CD Reviews

THE definitive RTX album ...
Terence Burke | Norwood, MA United States | 09/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...and quite possibly one of my top 10 favorite rock records of all time ...its THAT good! After alienating both sides of the rock world with their earlier noisier fare turning off all of those "musician types" and their later 70's classic rock reflections rubbing all of the underground hipsters pretentions into their faces, the 'Trux meet at the crossroads, and make an incredibly hook-laden, straight-up catchy rock n roll record, and then channel it through a wash of every intense, over-the-top effect imaginable. The result, an equally visceral, abrasive noise-mongers dream, yet at the same time with some of the most infectiously catchy songs the 'Trux have ever penned!! These songs STICK in your head! It really doesn't get any better than this, from start to finish. the inyour face rock of "I'm Ready" the Stones-ey balladry of "Lemon Kid" the sing-song chorus of "Banana Question" the brilliant/absurd cacophany of "Juicy, Juicy, Juice", the sonic waves of sound crashing over your skull with "New Bones", the ultimate catchy rock song "Liar", and the classic rock mello closer, "Stevie" ...this album is truly ... the best of every dimension of everything rock n roll, contemporary and classic, in one perfect package."
REALLY FUN, STRANGE, INFECTIOUS

"I love the other reviews of ACCELERATOR. They hit the nail on the head. This album took a few listens for me to catch on to the catchiness of the album. It's great. Strange, strange strange, but in the TRUX hands it all sounds somehow, down home, in your basement music fun. Get this album.
Personal favorites: I'm Ready, Yellow Kid, Banana Kid, ANother Year, Liar and Stevie.
Royal Trux makes fun rawking music that offsets you at first, but places you in such a renewed position of hope for rock and roll. GREAT STUFF!"
Noise don fail me now
