5.0 out of 5 stars ...And This is Our Music... 4 May 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
The Brian Jonestown Massacre's last album proper was this offering from 2003 - the sole releases since being the excellent two disc compilation 'Tepid Peppermint Wonderland' & the recent e.p. 'We are the Radio' (as well as the exposure from the documentary 'Dig!'). Anton Newcombe & co are on tour shortly, so hopefully new material will be forthcoming...

Contrary to the sleeve, there are 15-tracks on here (rather than the listed 17)- three key tracks surfaced on the compilation 'Starcleaner', 'Prozac Vs. Heroin' (released as a 7" with 'Nailing Honey to the Bee' on the flipside) and 'When Jokers Attack' - rumoured to be a rant concering the Dandy Warhols/Dig! (and in line with Anton's ranting sleevenotes - which offer insults, freeform listing of what he was aiming for musically and the fact two tracks here were meant to be sung by the Charlatans' Tim Burgess, as another was written for what's left of Echo & the Bunnymen). It seems Mr Newcombe is a blend of Arthur Lee and Mark E Smith...which is fine for the listener (...to be fair Anton points out former members have pursued their aims in BRMC and the Warlocks)...

I've not heard a bad album by the Brian Jonestown Massacre, this is another classic then...why did this band not register more until the documentary? 'Introesque' sounds like 65/66 Lennon colliding with Spacemen 3, the use of violin giving the song some darkness; while 'Starcleaner' sounds like a post-rock blend of Julian Cope, Led Zeppelin III, Love and Spiritualized. 'Here to Go' offers up a catchy blend of guitar hooks that recall the Smiths, as 'When Jokers Attack' shifts into a sublime psychedelic ballad - Anton sounds a little like Guy Chadwick here!

'Prozac Vs.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Prozac vs. heroin'? No, thanks - just BJM will do! 24 April 2004
Format:Vinyl
For me, this album would be perfect if it weren't for the first and lasttrack. Including answer phone messages on a record, whether they're from ahated ex or beloved new girlfriend, has been done before by Eminem. And hehasn't proven anything I didn't already know:
a) it's childish, and
b) I'm not that interested in his private life.
I'd advise anyone who's about to listen to BJM's '...And this is ourmusic' to skip 'The wrong way' and 'The right way', and focus instead onthe other tracks. You're bound to become as addicted to this album as I'vebecome. 'Prozac vs. heroin'? No, thanks - just BJM will do!
AntonNewcombe has listened to all the great bands and outdone them - see thealready mentioned 'Prozac...' , 'Tschusse' and 'Here it comes'. Some songswill have you in tears, others will have you practise standing on yourhead for the first time since primary school; but most will simplysplinter your spine with shivers.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...And this is a great record 3 April 2004
By Ray O'Keefe Cruitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is really fascinating to see how emotive the reactions are to the Brian Jonestown Massacre. It seems there's rarely a rating betwixt the one and five star rating for the BJM. And, this applies to every one of their records. This is so very telling. . . Are the reviews about the recording itself or are they about band? That said, I'll accede to my own opinion; it's from the perspective of a devoted (but, not fundamentalist!) BJM fan ...And This Is Our Music is evidence of an ever maturing and expanding BJM. I think they are Bach. In other words, they are not imposters, but great Interpreters. The lyrical as well as the instrumental songs on this recording are great. There's a reflective quality inherent in this album or, possibly it just makes me reflective. At the same time, I'm not saying that every song on this album should be elected into the canon. But, as a whole, this record rocks! Anton has the rare talent of being able to express the paradoxical nature of this sad and beautiful world through his music. This record has both sad and beautiful moments, sometimes contained within the same song.
If you hate the BJM and always have, as is evidenced by some of the so-called "music fans" who gratuitously offer up negative reviews of every BJM record, then it's obvious! you will hate this album. In other words, it's no different than having Winton Marsalis (a known hater of rock) review the newest Flying Saucer Attack record? We know what the content of that review would be. The Perpetual One Star!! in other words, not valid. As for all the rest - I think you'll find that And This Is Our Music has a lot to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars why not 1 Jan 2005
By GreySky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I always thought that the BJM's really good stuff where the older albums they produced with Matt Hollywood and the other great musicians they had but this new album is just phenomenal like the others. The melodys man Anton Newcombe is by far the greatest musican I've heard. Every song on this album is great and his supporting cast of musicians do not fail to produce the highest quality of music like the older musicians had done. I began to just like the record but after i heard the song "When Jokers Attack" man that killed anything i had heard with a melody like that before. This is a must to any music fan, you don't realy have to get into the BJM's older material to like this.Why Not get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong album from BJM 29 Feb 2004
By Kevin Polk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I won't comment much about other reviews except to point out that BJM main man Anton Newcombe seems to relish provoking a response from people, good or bad, and he clearly succeeds in provoking some bad feedback. Be that as it may.
This album is very strong. There are lots of great tunes including Geezers, Tschusse, When Jokers Attack, Prozac vs Heroin, and others. As with all BJM albums, Newcombe's songwriting is the story and he delivers the usual number of gems this time around.
You can sample BJMs music here [...] Note that the songs from And this is Our Music that appear there were early versions that have evolved slightly for the final release. Make up your own minds! My mind says: essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars high quality contemporary 'psychedelic' rock 12 Jan 2004
By Paul A. Scofield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I recently purchased this on a whim, and am pleased to report that it far exceeded my expectations. This is an ambitious recording: the song writing is varied and strong throughout, there's also a variety of instruments played, including horns...by listening to the sound samples you have a very good idea of what to expect. I know little about this group but believe they're based in LA, and are a core band of 4 or so guys, and have other musicians play on several tracks. To me, they're something like a cross between Spiritualized (circa Let it Come Down) and The Beatles (circa The White Album). A true find...my only complaint is that the drums are either of rather poor quality and/or poorly recorded...the singing and melodies are, by contrast, what make this cd truly outstanding.
