4.0 out of 5 stars Nurse! My medication, please 22 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
Somewhat ironic, isn't it, that The Second Line was used on an advert for a particular brand of jeans when the album kind of advertises another...?

The best thing about Internal Wrangler is its length, or rather lack of length. Full marks to Clinic for keeping it concise, and (nearly) full marks for an excellent array of mind-altering songs. The Velvet Underground are obviously a major influence (Distortions steals the opening lines of Candy Says, while 2/4 crams White Light / White Heat into a couple of minutes-worth of madness), but elsewhere you can hear snatches of Stereolab, Monks, Phil Spector, rockabilly, punk, fact, name a musical genre and there's a fair chance it's in here. Internal Wrangler also contains 2000's best song title, the fantastic Hippy Death Suite.

A genuinely unique band, and hopefully one to treasure for a long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Indeed! 4 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic, I bought it on it's release and I still come back to it now! It's oh-so different from the norm, it's filled with originality, quirky and catchy tunes, and even makes me chuckle with it's cheerful moments and odd lyrics.
You will not be disappointed with purchasing this album, that is for certain.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the vegetables serve as obstacles... 17 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Clinic come from Liverpool. Clinic wear surgical masks. Clinic sounds like Clinic. No one else sounds like Clinic.
This is their debut album and in the space of 31 minutes they pack more ideas than most bands use in a career and tear music up in the toybox of their minds and put it back together again.
Keyboards and melodica are to the fore but the real star is the vocals. Ade Blackurn's delivery is a truly unique weapon of rock n roll.
After heavy rotation through 2013 I now believe that this could be the best debut album ever made, beaten only by Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures. This album is exceptional.

"Voodoo Wop" sets the ball running with evil percussion and queasy keyboards that calms down into a sangria-by-the-beach swell. Merely into music it sets Clinic's stall. Weird and unsettling and funny all in one go.
"The Return Of Evil Bill" punishing, grinding, quisling, garrulous. The first sense we have of Ade Blackburn's sinister nonsense speak ('Self help for the farm'?. 'The billboard wars'?). Pushed along at a pace that isn't natural (apart from when it slows to a nursery rhyme falter).
'Internal Wrangler' sounds vaguely garage rock, like Inspiral Carpets with indigestion, except of course that Clinic don't sound like Inspiral Carpets, or anyone. Parping and stinging, surf meets garage meets the Joe 90 theme.
"DJ Shangri La" another mood piece as funeral keys meet squalling seagulls.
"The Second Line", plodding bass underpins amazingly nonsensical lyrics with a "tssked" backing harmony and a breathless boy band backing harmony. Despite all this the songs is fantastically catchy that makes you want to sing along! There is a wonderful child like joy about this song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clinic- Howgood is this? 14 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a really weird CD, you know the kind which sounds really weird at first and you decide you don't want anything to do with it. But then you just listen to it again and you find that it's in fact totally cool. You find the tracks like CQ and Distortions and you're like "How could I have ignored this so much?". It's an amazing album and I'm purely gonna bop away to it (if you can bop to this music)! Cool though! Second Line a lso rocks (off the Levis ad).

5.0 out of 5 stars Orginal, and Loud 10 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
A superb CD, with lots of drums! This is a very good, very upbeat CD, most of the tracks are very good, but two (Return of Evil Bill & 2nd Foot Stomp)are Briliant, not for people into Craig David or George Michael but most other people will love it.
