Format: Audio CD
Spinal Tap returns! The most prolific nonexistant band ever is back with "Break Like The Wind," a wonderfully warped metal album that celebrates rock'n'roll, bad lyrics and exploding drummers. This a bad album -- gloriously, magnificently bad, in the way only a spoof can be.
It opens with the roaring male dominance rocker "Bitch School," which would be offensive if it weren't tongue-in-cheek, then lurches on to the wonderfully bloated "Majesty of Rock," a gloriously ghastly duet with Cher, the insanely pretentious "The Sun Never Sweats" ("Bolder than the pirates who used to rule the sea/Braver than the natives, who never heard of tea...")
The peak of this album may be the song "Break Like the Wind," which aspires to be deep and inspirational despite lyrics like "We are the thumb on a stranger's hand." And two of the most priceless songs are at the end: the mope ballad "All the Way Home," and the truly twisted Christmas song, "Christmas With the Devil."
The world was first introduced to Spinal Tap in "This is Spinal Tap," the classic rockumentary about England's loudest band. With the help of Cher (yes, that Cher) and Dweezil Zappa, they take it upon themselves to roundly mock metal, hard rock, rock ballads, and quite a few other things as well -- they're funny because they put so much effort into doing a nudge-wink bad job.
The music itself is pretty standard hard rock riffs -- it's merely okay, and therein lies the irony. What's really startling is that while the music is not amazing in the technical sense, it's actually much better than many real-life bands were. Scary, no? It does have its moments of brilliance, due to Zappa and Jeff Beck mostly, as well as some gloriously ghastly sitar.

What an album. As a follow up to the "This is Spinal Tap" album, from the movie of the same name, this new one provides more excellent songs, well written and well performed. In character, these songs show that "Tap" are refuting claims that they are too old, or too sexy. Out of character, the music is excellent in its own right. Good tunes, amusing lyrics, and well played.
Highlights are the power balled "Just Begin Again" (with guest vocals from Cher- or someone sounding exactly like Cher) and the quirky "Clam Caravan", as well as some of the more standard Tap fare "Bitch School" and "The Majesty of Rock". Some nice additions are some old track from Squatneys biggest rock band's back catalogue, such as "All the Way Home" and "Rainy Day Sun".

A good album, on many different levels. Turn it up to 11 and ROCK ON!!!

This album, quite simply, rocks! There's no escaping the fact that it's a spoof, but musically speaking it far surpasses much of what tries to pass for the real thing! The Darkness should take note... While Justin Hawkins and co try to have us believe that they are a proper, serious band, everyone just thinks they're a piss-take; on the other hand everyone knows that Tap are a piss-take, but they could quite easily cut it as a real band!

This band are undoubtedly the best band ever. No question, unless the question is asked very nicely and in hushed tones. There are just some classic moments on this cd and some incredibly enlightening lyrics, giving us a look into the mind of the writer and a startlingly vivid depiction of the subtle meaning of each song. Maybe they're TOO good. I mean, I've actually heard people laughing at these songs! Blasphemy! Iron Maiden learned everything from these boys, and don't they know it - no one ever laughs at their albums. Do they?
The songs on here cannot be judged by usual standards - most people would disagree with putting FOUR guest lead guitarists on one song (break like the wind) or writing a song showing the similarity between the spanish invasion of south america and an unhappy love affair (the sun never sweats).
Simply, if you don't buy this album, I'll come round and force you to listen to it forever.

If you have never seen the movie, you really should watch it. Once you do you will listen to this album with fondness.

As a rock album it is pretty good. Lots of different musical influences and they are a very good band. One of these albums that oozes Marshall amplification.

I don't think the album has any stand out tracks other than Bitch School. However, as an album it is fun to listen to, particularly if you are familiar with the band (hence watch the movie).

The film Spinal Tap came out 25 years ago, but this album has hardly dated. As a heavy rock fan, I have always seen the funny side of the mickey taking. However, there were people who thought that these songs were bona-fide Anthems!! To this day I see Pub-rock bands who aren't a million miles away from Saxon, sorry Spinal Tap.
Great Stuff!

I first saw the film 'This is Spinal Tap' when I was at University and thought it was one of the funniest films I had ever seen and that the band 'Spinal Tap' had produced some of the most interesting songs ever! Imagine my delight at finding a second album of all new material. All new songs not included in the film but just as relevant to the way we live life today. Tap speak for a generation, they are artists in every sense of the word.....they are....... You know they're a comedy band don't you? Spinal Tap is one of the best comedy films ever and the album spoofs so many songs and artists it would be hard to list them all. If you're a fan of the film you'll love it, if you're not a fan of the film. Watch the film, you'll love it and you'll end up buying this album anyway! Long live the Tap.
