CD Reviews

In Rock, indeed
Scott Richardson | Chicago, IL USA | 04/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While other recent Minus 5 records (Down With Wilco and I Don't Know Who I Am) seemed a bit limp, In Rock reclaims the energy of Let The War Against Music Begin. Sure, that's probably because it was recorded nearer to the same time (though, so was I Don't Know Who I Am, but who's counting), but whatever. Most of the songs on this disc are up-tempo, and all of the songs have excellent harmonies and McCaughey's trademark weirdo lyrics.I'm a Young Fresh Fellows fan first and foremost, but "In A Lonely Coffin," "Where the Wires Meet the Sky," and the rest of the songs on this disc will tide me over until the Fellows decide to do another record. They will do another record, right?"

"Smart Garage Psych for Now People. As a reissue In Rock is an Original Artyfact from '00, but parts of it could just as well be from '66. This album features a great vintage keyboard sound, especially in Lies of the Living Dead and Dr. Evil. These two songs echo The Seeds and The Zombies, while others on here bring to mind Mott the Hoople, NRBQ, and SCOTS. Oh, and yes, the immortal Young Fresh Fellows. I saw the M5 live at The 3B in 2002, and well... what happens at a Minus 5 show stays at a Minus 5 show."

"This is, bar none, the best driving record ever pressed. From the catchy simple riffs of "Courage" to the drop dead crunch of "Lies of the Living Dead" this album fuses the drive of the Fleshtones (note the liberal use of the farfisa) with the best moments of the dbs and on and on. Put this on, turn it up and hit the highway!"
