New psychedelia
G. De Bona | Italy | 06/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"the first time I've seen anything about this band is the day I've seen on TV DIG! (go see it now!), the 7-years long documentary about the controversal relationship between BJM and Dandy Warhols, and in particular between Anton and Dandy's leader and songwriter (I don't even remember his name).
Then I bought this album, and I understood why everybody stay around this guy for a while is totally ipnotized: he's guided by sacred flame of art, his songs are made by the flow the goes through his body and his soul, with no sophistication at all.
I can say BJM is the most powerful example of uncontaminated music in America these days.

"This album shows the genius and brilliant versatility of the Brian Jonestown Massacre! To me this music is incredibly important. It was recorded in 1996 so this is well before any 'rock revival' stuff coming out now. This is honest music that channels the eternal air of beat spirit.
"I walked to New York and back from LA, I lived on a mountain and once by the bay...Living today is just getting so bad, there's a look on your face and it says you've been had."
This music is genius. This band is genius. Do NOT ignore this album! Buy it or just download it for free off their official website.
