Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have produced the single best album of 2001 with this, their debut album. Each of the 11 tracks is a superb blend of rhythmic beats, thoughtful lyrics and excellent guitar riffs.
From the opening track, the album is a class act. I first noticed BRMC on the release of ‘Spread Your Love’ which has an unforgettable riff and one of my favourite musical openings to a rock and roll song. The fact that the a track of this type can have such a quality beat without having overpowering drums or drowned vocals shows that BRMC have not made the same mistakes as other recent rock bands.
To my surprise and pleasure, on listening to the album, I found that ‘Spread Your Love’ was not in fact their best song. Indeed, such is the quality and balance evident in every track that I am compelled to say that every song is brilliant in its own right.
Listening to the album from track 1 to track 11 is the best way to listen to it. There are few albums in which every track complements the others to the extent that this can be recommended. Each track varies enough to claim its own identity and after a year and a half of it almost possessing my stereo, I am still waiting for any of the tracks to bore me. Apparently, that day will never come.
The most remarkable track on the album is ‘Rifles’. Don’t get me wrong, ‘Whatever happened to my rock n’ roll’ on any other album would doubtless eclipse all others, but the epic ‘Rifles’ is a monumental musical effort. The eerie 1.5 minute opening with vocal harmonies repeating ‘I’m gonna take my time’ may seem a little bizarre at first, but they comprise the necessary prologue to the overall track.

These young guys from San Francisco have made an album that happens to combine catchy melodies with more of a darker edge than this years current faves The Strokes, White Stripes etc. They are at their best with songs like Love Burns and Red Eyes and Tears which hail inspiration from the likes of the Jesus and Mary Chain but put a fresh edge on it. Most of the tracks on the album are riddled with distortion and grinding rhythms but also they come up with great melodies .e.g Rifles. I feel that what they do best is simply rock out with Whatever Happended to My Rock and Roll being a prime example. A corker of a track, the album could of had a few more on the same line. A classic debut that shows B.R.M.C should be around for a long time to come.

I first heard of this band about a year ago through another U.S band (Brian Jonestown Massacre)and also because of their well cool name. So I thought I'd pick the album up on import to check it out. There's nothing amazingly new or unique about this three-piece but what they do offer is some very good dark guitar rock. Most of the tunes do have a similar sound but if you enjoy the music of Jesus and Mary Chain, M.B.V, and early Ride you'll love this. In fact you could imagine this band on Creation Records circa 1989. More recently they share the same kind of psychedelic guitar sound as the Dandy Warhols. I don't really have a fave song as there quite a few stand out tracks, although 'Rifles' is top notch in Stone Roses groove type way, and 'As Sure as the Sun' has an ace bass-line. They do however, wear their influences on their sleeve too much on the final track 'Salvation' ....All in all definitely worth checking out if your into Good Indie-Guitar music and lets face it, theres not much of it about these days.

This is a record to become seriously excited about, in a very mellow way. This record has a an aura about it that is not present in many modern band. They do seem to be able to encompass a great varying musical genres into one blend, there are quitre obvious influences from physche, shoegazer, but then through the mix you can hear a spark of bright acoustic guitar, fuzzy overdrive and distortion which hits in great waves of noise. It is truly a sublime album, the trio show off some excellent songwriting on such numbers as, Rifles, which is my personal favourite song, Love Burns and Whatever happened to my rock 'n' roll.

One aspect of thsi album i truly do love is how the guys seem able to layer some quite complex guitar work, with equally gracious bass work relayed over a solid drum beat, they certainly have a lot more talent than most artists of the current moment, and have definately lead me to believe that something good to come of the american music scene.

All in all i cannot stress enough how much you should go out and buy this album it is a truly good listen, and great to relax to after a long day.

Looking out for something to challenge or equal the formidable Jesus & Mary Chain, the press reviews promised much from the debut, B.R.M.C. Don't be taken in by this as you will be disappointed if this is your only reason for buying it. These reviews have left me wondering if they had ever heard Psycho Candy, and didn't look beyond the cover of B.R.M.C. If your looking for this, buy Barbed Wire Kisses and stop looking. On listening to this record on its own merit, you will find a different flavour all together. It has contagious moods and themes of its own. This does stand up on its own as you listen to it progressively. If you were to draw comparisons, then think Verve's, A Storm In Heaven, My Bloody Valentine or even MC5. It will be interesting to see their next move.
