CD Reviews

Really more about (...)-kicking rock & roll
I. McGrath | Pondicherry | 05/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK, I am going to try this again. I think the content of my last attempt at a review did not go over well with the censors.

My basic thesis is that this is a great (and archetypal) showing from a band that does not appear to have been ready-hatched for your 14-year-old nephew by the great music industry Engine of Mediocrity.

TN comes at you nice and hard with a surprising melodic undertone in there that keeps the music mentally interesting. It's definitely not your emo-wuss bilge that makes you beg the band to please grow up, nor is it the trite distorto-crunch mess with some dude trying to growl like he's actually a tough guy.

This is for those of you who would like to get your (...) kicked but would rather not feel like you are a) still working through your teen angst; b) trying to annoy and/or scare your parents (although this will do plenty of that); or c) trying to escape the taint of your middle-class, hyper-feminized, neo-suburban, gotta-go-to-model-UN-so-I-can-get-into-Harvard, the-losers-at-the-soccer-tournament-should-get-trophies-too, upbringing by listening to "hardcore" music."
Death punk? nah....this is full of life.
I. McGrath | 03/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The death punk genre tag does this band no service. The rock n roll the Turbonegro machine pumps out is full of life and everyone that listens to this masterpiece should be thankful. Of course this band is not serious, but neither were the Ramones and Damned for the most part. That's what makes this genius.. it's fun and it's by no means dumb. While the rest of the rock world is truely obsessed by the dark side of life...this is a celebration of everything that made the early punk rock bands so cool."
The Best Album of All time
Mike Rhakabit | Long beach | 05/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I know that's a pretty massive claim, but I can more than back it up. Take everything that should be great about an album, then look at this one. A good album should musically be good. AD has some of the best music you will ever hear. Not this 3 chord bs, nor the hubris of Phish. At the same time, the music itself is part of the brilliance. Solos (insanely fast ones at that) dot the album. They're literally everywhere. Yet, at the same time, that's the point. The solos are meant to be humorous, as they go where they don't belong. Think of a more talented version of Spinal Tap. At the same time though, they have enough originality and pop sensibilities that they never fall into self parody, even though you couldn't tell looking at a lyric sheet, which brings us to point number two. Lyrics. They fit into the music, adding to it. When you hear the epic intro to Age of Pamparius, you expect the lyrics to come and be some life-affirming apocalyptic grand poetry, but instead they're about pizza. Once again, Spinal Tap. But once again, they work, and have enough to stand on their own. They're funny, but at the same time not stupid, and fit into the overall mood of the album. As far as influence goes, just look into the tribute CD. Everything from techno to black metal. As rock and roll, it's what rock and roll was always supposed to be: fun and dangerous. Think of Alice Cooper fronting the Ramones, produced by the Village people and you'll get a good idea of what this album is about. Way better than Sgt. pepper's."
