Format:Audio CD
Nomeansno, perhaps the finest of all Canada's musical exports, have been active since 1979 and have been one of those rare and special acts that have improved in a gradual upward arc with every release. Leading lights of the '80s post-punk/noise rock scene along with the likes of their former label boss Jello Biafra, Steve Albini and, a little later on, Therapy?; like them they specialised in a particularly intricate and hyperkinetic brand of punk rock with an added ghoulish, nightmarish edge to them which allowed their songs to penetrate far more deeply into the consciousness than any of the more straitlaced "smash the state" rantings normally associated with punk as a genre.
Their comeback release of sorts, this is a jarring u-turn away from NMN's sombre and film noir-ish 2000 album 'One' and returns to their earlier style: a uniquely bombastic tribalism propelling lyrical tales at once sardonic and existential, and sometimes unfathomable. The two centrepiece tunes here, 'I See A Mansion In The Sky' and 'Heaven Is The Dust Beneath My Shoes' - what in hell are they talking about? Something about, maybe, the point of life being simply to live? Something about the inevitability of death? Whatever - here are two songs you can honestly and genuinely say have never been written before!
Some of the other stuff is equally alluring. The opening 'Wake Up' (which leads off with a rocket blast, the drum rhythms almost reaching grindcore-like frenzies) seems to be noting that the whole "live life to the fullest" spiel is usually wrongly interpreted by people as meaning, wallow in gluttonous excess and consumerism. 'Mr In-Between' suggests that, to an evil person, his/her conscience is the most evil thing conceivable.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best 7 Nov 2012

I sort of rediscovered Nomeansno after a long break and was very pleasantly surprised when I heard this. It's definitely up there with their very best work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Derivative and original, familiar and surprising...at the same time 18 Sep 2006
By musicdoesnthavetobeboring - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow, what a great album. 12 songs of often strange familiarity. Whether it's playing with simple generic rhythms (is one even based on a hymn?!)...before breaking into their trademark complexity, or resurrecting familiar sounds from earlier more bass-n-drum albums but twisted and reformed into something new and vital. All with their trademark dark vitriolic take on life. Lyrically it's pure poetry, of the type you won't be reading in school any time soon. A masterful album and THE release of the year for anyone who cares about genuine creativity in music. NMN are truly one of a kind. Let's hope it's not the last album!

The band are touring as we speak - go check em out, they're about the finest rock band you can hope to see live too and still have more energy on stage than a thousand Green Days or Offsprings combined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still wrong and brilliant. 2 Mar 2008
By Vaughn Deyhle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Several years ago when I was living in Dayton, Ohio, the whole bloody town was indulging in self high-fives, congratulating itself on being the home of the Wright Brothers, celebrating their acheivement of flight. Phooey!! Their importance and acheivements are nugatory in comparison to the Wright brothers from the north. Yeah, I guess inventing the air plane is kind of cool ... so what? On the other hand you've got the contributions of Nomeansno. If I could choose only one or the other: the band or the inventors, the music or the vehicle ... I'm gonna choose Nomeansno.

And thank god they're back!! Gentlemen, we missed you. Maybe there weren't many of us that missed you, but the world of music needs you.

I'm ashamed to say I didn't manage to score every album by these guys before they suddenly left Alternative Tentacles Records and their discography disappeared into the aether. But hot crap, do I ever love their music. No one, NO ONE sounds like Nomeansno. There isn't a bass out there that sounds like theirs, even though it's a fairly simple rig and a P-bass. No band has vocals like Nomeansno, no one is even marginally similar, sounding simultaneously like speech and singing from a podium in a Leni Reifenstahl film ... yeah, that's the atmosphere you sense in their music sometimes. Does anyone write lyrics like them? It's possible, but good luck searching. It's all back: the swirling cynicism of a jaundiced world view in all its scathing glory. When you don't take yourselves seriously, you have license to make fun of everyone and everything. Yet, they're also able to be shockingly poetic in spite of their very discomforting nature. Truth is madness and madness is truth.

Look, these guys have been around a long time. MTV won't introduce you to them because in their eyes "they're not a group the kids can relate to." Suck it, MTV!! Just keep on pumping that bubblegum punk and we'll keep laughing at you. Yes, the Wright brothers' hair is gray without even an attempt to hide it. Yes, they look like my dad and to some of you they might look like your grandfather. Get over it. Nomeansno still crank out music with an energy and urgency that fools like Blink 182 aren't even worthy to attempt.

Ausfahrt continues the tradition of everything that makes this band great. The rusty razor wit and uncomfortable rythms are all there after all these years. Aren't they supposed to mellow out now and make something new agey to put us to sleep? Frankly, these guys HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE THIS GOOD. If you have no right, then you might as well be wrong. "Be strong, be wrong." Wrong and beautiful as ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never cease to amaze 23 Mar 2013
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
I first heard No Means No when my buddy turned me on to them with Wrong back in 1991. Wow, was I blown away then - a raw yet refined punk (and original) sound. Fast forward (yikes) nearly 20 years, to All Roads... Holy crap, this album is as good as Wrong (and all the ones between). With this album, I was compelled enough to see them live (finally). I found them playing in Chicago and planned my trip from south Florida with two buddies (including the one who first shared Wrong). We had a two-night stay with the purpose and highlight being the No Means No show. They did not disappoint. Incredible energy, fantastic sound. Own this album, see them live. One of a kind band for the ages.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best album purchase in the past few years 2 Jun 2014
By JohnZalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm feeling dumb and lazy so I won't be attempting to put together a real review of this album. Besides, the other reviewers covered everything nicely. Back in my college days Wrong was one of my favorite albums-- in fact it became sort of a soundtrack to those years with my circle of friends. Back then their sound was so refreshingly different: complex, hard rocking punk; irreverent yet often with a social message. What I'm trying to say is they kicked ass. Over the years my musical taste changed somewhat but I occasionally would listen to NMN and wonder whatever happened to them. Little did I know they were still producing great music. I found this album about a year ago, and was immediately taken back (in two senses of the words-- you figure them out). This may be their best album to date.
4.0 out of 5 stars I really wish 14 Oct 2013
By John E. Ellison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've listened to this CD several times in hopes that it would grow on me. It hasn't. Not to say it isn't well done and interesting overall, but the hooks aren't there. Or, at least not enough of them for me to remember the ones that are there. If you love these guys like I do, you'll buy it anyway.
