  8. Split Shins
    by cabin man
    00:00/00:00
    Loomer Loomer
    I suspect that Cabin Man is the best new rock and roll band to emerge in a long time. They write riffs both evocative and queasy which recall the Sonic Youth and Soundgarden, but they produce their recordings with no apparent regard for fidelity or clarity. The songs take a while to sink in. But eventually they do.

  12. First Issue
    by Public Image Ltd.
    00:00/00:00
    Public Image Public Image
    While "Metal Box" takes the "Best Public Image Ltd. Album" cake and runs away burning calories even as it eats it, "First Issue" still contains several terrific tracks, primarily "Theme," "Annalisa," "Public Image" and "Fodderstompf." Only a fool would pass it up.

    P.S. The purchased album includes worthless throwaway B-side "The Cowboy Song" and a John Lydon interview which I haven't yet listened to. Cheers!
  13. Monoliths & Dimensions
    by SUNN O)))
    00:00/00:00
    Alice Alice
    I'm not very qualified to judge Sunn O))), as I'm not a huge drone-metal guy. However, these songs are so loud and so wisely compressed that they were obviously meant for listening on a massive hi-fi stereo. No earbuds for "Aghartha." Hell of a buildup, too.
  14. Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method
    by Earth
    00:00/00:00
    Tethered To The Polestar Tethered To The Polestar
    The space between notes is the important part, as it always was with Earth's most honest pieces ("Sonar & Depth Charge," "Charioteer") -- instead of a suffocating drone, they now utilize silence for maximum beauty and clarity. "Tethered to the Polestar," in all its tearjerking, confessional majesty, stands out best, but beautiful riffs like "Wolves" and "Inquest " remind us of Earth's rock roots. It's strange and spare, in a way that its sequels are not, and that is why it's so evocative.
  15. Jurassic Park -- The Album
    by Low-Maintenance Perennials
    00:00/00:00
    Ol' "Balk" Stevenson Ol' "Balk" Stevenson
    Much, much stupider than "Chicago XX," and hard to listen to at times because the string of in-jokes isn't always that funny. Still, though, several tracks are fuckin' hilarious. (I also recommend "Truck-Drivin' Cowpoke Eisenhower Companion,"
    "Ol' Balk Stevenson," the Organ Suite, and the "Reagan = Flake" interlude.)

  17. No Policy
    by State Of Alert
    00:00/00:00
    Gate Crashers Gate Crashers
    Man, I put on my new State of Alert album and bent over to tie my shoe, and when I looked up it was over! Seriously, it's about eight and a half minutes long. When you have to decide, though, between hearing Henry Rollins's first band digital on Bandcamp or ponying up $275 to get the original EP from some greedy fuck on Discogs, most people don't exactly change tabs to purchase the physical format. Like me, you may need a few listens to appreciate "No Policy," but it blows the roof off.

    O.J. Simpson O.J. Simpson
    If Mark Prindle gives it a ten out of ten, who the hell am I to argue? It must be said that I am baffled by the legitimacy he places on jokey projects like "Jurassic Park" and "Tamara" etc., saying he's "extremely proud of" his utlra-stupid lo-fi LuMP albums, but here I must agree. This sounds the most like a collection of songs, which other Perennials albums did not (for the most part), and I am pleased to find myself pleased by it. Gone are the wannabe-Butthole Surfers interludes, replaced with real songwriting and stupid jokes that sound more like parts of songs than just recordings of stupid jokes. Awesome!
  21. Phonography
    by R. STEVIE MOORE
    00:00/00:00
    California Rhythm California Rhythm
    Uncredible! Hilarious experimentation (such as "Goodbye Piano" and the spoken interludes) abounds, but there is no shortage of beautiful melodies ("California Rhythm," "Moons," "I Not Listening") either. Upon purchase one also acquires the CD-reissue bonus tracks, including "Wayne Wayne Go Away" and "Hobbies Galore." (Still, even without them the original "Phonography" album rocked to Cambodia and back.) Join the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club here!
  22. Old Major "...With Love"
    by R.A.I.G. Records
    00:00/00:00
    Lint Giver Lint Giver
    These guys sound like hipsters. The snotty singer, sneering bass, bearded tambourine and incorporation of experimental elements (bass drum intro to "Lint Giver," banjo-driven "Wagoneers," Primus-funk mother "Spel Check") all clearly designate this band as guys who want you to notice how h3p they are to the j1v3. The problem is, it works so well that you barely notice! 8/10
  23. The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull
    by Earth
    00:00/00:00
    Rise To Glory Rise To Glory
    I went camping once in the Sierra Nevada. It was early February, colder'n a witch's tit, and storms arrived and unloaded bales of snow on us during the first day. We slept with the snow higher around our tent than under it. The following morning, I clambered from my bag, pulled on my frozen shoes and watched as the sunlight fought tooth and nail with the receding gloom for the barest yard of ground. As it finally broke into our stretch of canyon, snow began to melt off of the trees, and I could almost hear the crusty slide guitar in "Miami Morning" break off the other instruments like ice from a pine tree and echo through the granite walls, a songbird heralding the arrival of a new day.

    Great album, by the way.
  24. Hostile Ambient Takeover
    by Melvins
    00:00/00:00
    The Anti-Vermin Seed The Anti-Vermin Seed
    Bits of it remind me of Soundgarden, KISS and the Reverend Horton Heat. The Melvins adopted a more "normal" approach to songwriting, it seems, with pentatonic chord progressions and a great deal of harmonized King Buzzo vocals. It's not quite as good as "Pigs of the Roman Empire" or "(A) Senile Animal," but it's boatloads of fun nonetheless!
  25. Pigs of the Roman Empire (Melvins/Lustmord)
    by Melvins
    00:00/00:00
    Pink Bat Pink Bat
    "Pink Bat" is, without a doubt, one of the best songs ever put to tape, even with the Japanoisy introduction. And indeed, several other bits of the album live up to its rabid hype! (not least among which is "Pigs of the Roman Empire," nor "The Bloated Pope" nor "Idolatrous Apostate.") I have to say, I enjoyed it more upon repeated exposure than I did "Hostile Ambient Takeover," but that's me. BRING THE NOISE!!!!!!!!!!
  26. Total Destruction To Your Mind
    by Swamp Dogg
    00:00/00:00
    These Are Not My People These Are Not My People
    Now if I were one of you salty middle-class Americans staring down the barrel of a PC at the threatening screech of Swamp Dogg's slammin' debut, I too might have turned tail and run. To forsake the work of the gut-bustingest soul man ever to bathe in the ironic nectar of critical respect, however, would be a papal sin -- especially considering he puts his product on Bandcamp for ONLY FOUR EUROS! Do it now, before you lose your nerve!
  27. Disen Gage "...the reverse may be true"
    by R.A.I.G. Records

    Full thoughts: noopinionshere.wordpress.com/2016/10/30/the-reverse-may-be-true-by-disen-gage-review/

    Condensed version: I loved the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- it was one of my "formative books" -- and I think that this album certainly does it justice. The other cool thing, however: you know how you hear the sounds of instruments like trumpet, brass section, calliope, organ, steel drums, vibraphone and synth keyboard on the album? Those are effects pedals. Only guitars were used on this recording, though I personally can't tell.
  28. Primitive And Deadly
    by Earth
    00:00/00:00
    There Is A Serpent Coming There Is A Serpent Coming
    It's a little more conventional than their other work, even more so than "Bees Made Honey" or "Hex," and makes a good entry point to the Earth catalog. There seems to be a slight split in opinion over this album, though: critics have been lukewarm towards the addition of guest vocalists (even though Dylan Carlson sang on one of Earth's most beloved records, "Pentastar"), while we plebs simply can't get over the fact that MARK FRICKIN' LANEGAN is is the singer on two Earth songs. Oh well. Enjoy!
  29. Angle Of Attack (Reissue)
    by Jack Endino
    00:00/00:00
    Angle Of Attack Angle Of Attack
    Unfortunately, "Angle of Attack" is not the pterodactyl ride on acid that was its cousin, "Permanent Fatal Error." It has moments of untethered punk/hard-rock brilliance, which fly just close enough to the sun, but occasionally it melts into flapping puddles of such ambient stupidity as the "X-Echo" tracks. I may judge this garage-made affair harshly, but considering how its godlike younger brother lit up my life, I give it a regrettable "decent" grade. A dozen-odd terrific songs abide, though!
  30. To The Estimated Size Of The Universe
    by Craang
    00:00/00:00
    Magnolia Magnolia
    Black Sabbath would have given their last joint to put out anything this heavy. Not everything is totally absorbing: I personally find "Butterfly" and parts of the overlong "The Meteorian" to be rather boring and overblown. However, when Craang synthesize what makes them great -- ball-busting grooves, psychedelic effects, huge distortion, and implementation of tension-and-release jamming theory -- they succeed, as in "Magnolia." It will leave blisters on your brain.
  31. Air Canda "Air Canda"
    by R.A.I.G. Records
    00:00/00:00
    Fata Morgana Fata Morgana
    This album grew on me like kudzu. The bridge of "Five Worms" served handily as a point of departure, until I pried open such geodes as the wonderful "Rainy Man," "Ritual"'s quasi-tribal extasy, and the bluesy contortions of "Fata Morgana," which features one of the world's premier guitar solos. "Chronoclasm" and "Signature" are the only truly scary, over-the-top avant-jazz pieces here -- the rest is jubilant, complex, refreshing prog-rock. Rejoice!
