Biography

Forget whatever you thought about Clutch. Earth Rocker crumples up the bad categories that have miscast them for years — stoner rock, post-hardcore, metal, grunge — and leaves no question about what they are: a damn good rock and roll band.
Earth Rocker is a solid, straight-up rock and roll album, exactly what the band had in mind for their tenth studio album, now that their ... Read more in Amazon's Clutch Store

2007's From Beale Street to Oblivion; is already considered one of the fiercest, catchiest and overall best sounding blues rock releases of our generation. Now here's an expanded edition of rock & roll music to make both modern hard rock & classic rock music fans' mouth water! Weathermaker Music is re-issuing Beale Street in truly spectacular style. Upgrading the artwork & packaging and adding visual digital enhancement was just the beginning!

4.0 out of 5 stars From Transnational Speedway to Beale Street 18 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Clutch's latest album is another step in the band's evolution. Transnational Speedway and the early E.Ps like Impetus were brash, heavy and fairly aggressive. They became groovier and more laid back with the self titled and experimented on Elephant Riders. Pure Rock Fury did exactly what it said on the tin and Blast Tyrant was simpler and catchier than anything before it. 2005's Robot Hive was a culmination of everything that they'd learnt and indeed created and was a masterpiece in it's own right.

From Beale Street to Oblivion takes on a much groovier and vastly more bluesy perspective.

The first two tracks are fairly deceiving being two of the simplest most directly rocking tracks they've ever written. Power Player will be a live favourite no doubt. The tracks that follow are a tad subtler, are more complex structurally and swing more than anything on previous albums.

White's Ferry starts off mellow lead by Mick Shauer's hammond organ and blasts into a typical Clutch frenzy. Electric Worry is another sure-fire classic, it'll just make you smile; great tune!

The Rapture of Riddley Walker, Oppossum Minister and Mr.Shiny Cadillackness (best song title ever!?) are also up there with the best on previous albums.

Beale Street doesn't quite hit five stars because it doesn't seem to be as consistent as the other albums. On Robot Hive I really couldn't pick a favourite track whereas here it was pretty easy. Maybe some tracks just drift by but the best are way up there.

Theres a slightly re-worked version of One Eye Dollar from Jam Room on here which I didn't really understand other than It's a great tune.

From Beale Street to Oblivion is definitely a great album filled with bluesy, catchy rock tunes and anyone into Clutch will love it. It just doesn't quite reach those giddy heights reached by previous albums.

It'll still be in my top 5 of the year though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Players *boom boom* 7 Feb 2009
By Pablo K
Format:Audio CD
Clutch are a band on a roll. They delivered two landmark albums in 2005 and 2006 ('Blast Tyrant' and 'Robot Hive/Exodus') and managed to pull another out of the hat in 2007. Although a little shorter than its predecessors, 'From Beale Street...' is probably the best Clutch album yet, although it says much for their consistency and inventiveness that that's a pretty close call.

Twelve blistering cuts reinvent Clutch's familiar territory. This is not a band with a diverse sound, and yet the recipe never gets stale. The sound is both crisper and a little more bluesy than on previous records and Neil Fallon's lyrical abilities continue to astound. Nowhere will you find a more affirming dose of cynical pugnacity than when he sings:

'You can always tell the terrorist!/By his cologne and the watch on his wrist/It says I'm the type of man that can kick off anywhere/Kick off anywhere'

Other song topics continue to delight in true Clutch style, taking in tattooed vegans (on 10-speed bikes), arrogant alcoholics and pacts with the Devil, not to mention a somewhat surprising (but very pleasing) nod to Russell Hoban's post-apocalyptic masterpiece 'Riddley Walker', complete with in-jokes and fictional dialect.

A hugely invigorating and witty album. Get your hands on it if you like your heavy music groove-laden and brimming over with wit. I'm going to listen to it now.

Essential cuts: 'Power Player', 'Devil and Me', 'Electric Worry', 'When Vegans Attack' and 'Mr. Shiny Cadillackness'.

By Matt Pucci VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Clutch's latest opus is simply another snapshot of the band's stunning evolution. Rather aptly, it opens with the catchy, upbeat 'You Can't Stop The Progress' which segues almost immediately into the superb, tongue-in-cheek 'Power Player' (sample lyric: "You can always tell the terrorist by his cologne and the watch on his wrist"). The rest of the album is characterised by a distinctly bluesy feel - one that was hinted at on previous LP Robot Hive/Exodus - but as always, it's by no means a straightforward take on the genre, with Neil Fallon's lyrics in particular adding that unique and bizarre twist to proceedings. "Has your child completed his or her suspicious activity booklet? Don't let this summer go to waste" he implores on the quite brilliantly-titled 'Mr Shiny Cadillackness'.

With 'Evil' Joe Barresi on production duties, the album's sound is both warm and wonderfully rich. Eric Oblander of long-time friends/tour buddies Five Horse Johnson makes a welcome appearance or two on harmonica, with the obvious highlight being 'Electric Worry' - a foot-stomping, old-school blues rock classic. Other highlights include 'When Vegans Attack' and 'Opossum Minister', both of which exhibit Clutch's trademark looseness. There has always been a certain fluidity to Clutch's music - a natural propensity to groove - and yet Beale Street is arguably the band's most cohesive album to date. Indeed, it's difficult to find fault with this record at all and I for one will be down the front, shakin' my ass to these tunes next time the boys are in town. Make sure you are too.

5.0 out of 5 stars More excellence 5 July 2011
By AP Bove
Format:Audio CD
I only discovered Clutch by accident - they were scheduled to play in Greece and I had never heard of them, so being curious I did some research on the web and ... was completely blown away. I cannot believe I had not heard of them before. I ordered immediately their most recent 5 cds (Pure Rock Fury 2001, Blast Tyrant 2004, Robot Hive/Exodus 2005, From Beale Street to Oblivion 2007, and Strange Cousins from the West 2009) and have discovered a whole new universe of (how do I put this ...) old school, unpretentious hard rock for men. Clutch is, to me, a core rock band: talent forged of 20+ years of playing together; relevance from innovation; and professional skill missing from so many bands today.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time I've listened to Clutch
Good album with a real flavour of it's own style - heavy rock but with a subtleness that I liked. Can't wait to see them live.
