4.0 out of 5 stars autogeddon is s.t.a.r.c.a.r. 5 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
Autogeddon is short - in comparison to Cope`s brilliant double albums Peggy Suicide and Jehovahkill, which had been released before Autogeddon. Here, we only have 8 songs, some of which are typical Cope guitar songs, like the title track Autogeddon blues, others are a bit more experimental ( I gotta walk ). But there is one song, the final song, to be more precise, that transcends everything else Cope has ever produced. It`s called S.t.a.r.c.a.r. and it is an 11 - minute - guitar freakout in imitation of Funkadelic`s Maggot Brain. Buy the record, the first 35 minutes are not bad, but the last 11 minutes are perfect guitar - based space - rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autogeddon 7 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant album on the theme of cars and why they are bad news for all of us.

Typically eccentric, Cope is at his most humorous and angry here.

Probably the most far-out, wiggy Cope trip of them all, S.T.A.R.C.A.R. is the greatest lunatic guitar spacerock epic you will ever hear. Funkadelic's Maggot Brain multiplied by the freeform freakout of Cope's own Safe Surfer, this track is where Julian puts aside all pretension and just goes for it. Played live in crash helmets, it was the audience that needed the protection; this is an attack on the brain from beginning to end.

Some classic Cope here, Including a track recorded in the burial chamber of a Wiltshire long barrow! Attitude in my latitude and longing in my longitude!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 24 Jan 2005
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't usually write these reviews, but I couldn't let the only thing said about this album be so negative.

This is the first Cope CD I bought and it opened my eyes and is still my favorite. His angry violent tripped out, yet brilliant vibe fills the CD throughout. From ranting rages to humor tinged comments on the impossibility of living outside of where you live. He takes car culture out back for a good flogging but admits "There ain't no gettin' 'round gettin' 'round"

This is the album Psychic TV should have made.

Mention should also be made of Thighpaulsandra's excellent synths and production. His hand is apparant in the lushness of the overall sound and the brilliance of the synthesizer work (it was his connection that got me to buy this record in the first place). I think the 3 records he worked on are the best produced of what I've heard by JC.

This album may just blow your mind and tune you into a Head Heritage you never suspected was there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not His Best Work...But Still VERY Strong 22 Jan 2006
By Steven E. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While this is not Julian's best album, it certainly does contain a couple of his best songs, "Don't Call Me Mark Chapman" and "Ain't But the One Way". Copey is starting to get cranky on this record and he's got a lot to venting to do. In a lot of ways Autogeddon is like his newer Citizen Cain'd release, Julian picks his targest and guns them down. The only problem that I have with Autogeddon is it's inconsistency. While I can appreciate songs like "STARCAR" and "Ain't No Gettin Round Getting Round" they don't quite fit in with the intensity of the other tracks.

If you are new to Julian Cope's music I wouldn't start with Autogeddon. Try St Julian or Fried and then move into the more dangerous teritory. And be sure to bring your head.
3.0 out of 5 stars somewhere inbetween 23 Sep 2005
By J. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i have enjoyed Julian Cope's old band The Teardrop Explodes as well as his great solo cd's. but Autogeddon is one album that has yet to pull me in. i'm not sure what it is. perhaps it's just that Peggy Suicide & Jehovakill are such superb and realized albums (and 20 Mothers is pretty great, too) that in comparison, Autogeddon just falls flat. there are some good songs on here. but they seem a bit lost within the context of this muddled album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 23 Dec 2004
By J. G. Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really like Julian Cope, both solo and with The Teardrop Explodes, but this is unlistenable. There is absolutely nothing to recommend it. The lyrics are frighteningly bad and frightening. The tunes and arrangements are unmemorable. It doen not have the endearingly quirky madness of, say, Syd Barrett or Daniel Johnson. It's just plain bad, so bad that I'll probably throw the CD in the trash.
