After the claustrophobic nightmare ( I mean that as a compliment ) of Confusion is Sex came Bad Moon Rising. And yes it does seem quite a bipolar album. Not as scary as Confusion but then not as entirely mellow as their recent releases. It remains enigmatic though as while listening to this you get the sense of a strange calm with this record and that's odd given the weird guitar noise that comes with this record.
Obviously the most accessible track here is Death Valley 69 with additional vocals from Lydia Lunch. It's good but what makes this album really good is it's sense of flow - there's no sense of upstaging the other one or the other track.
Sure it has it's highlights but it doesn't feel like a disjointed album I can ramble on about this album for ages because I really love it to bits.....this is the best I can do to try and review this album without running to the point of meaningless jibberish
Sonic Youth - I Love Her All the Time
Anti-kraut-rock for mesmerized nihilists, metaphysical blues-psychedelia for intellectual punks.
