4.0 out of 5 stars Let the Soul-Punk revolution begin.... 3 Aug 2002
By roxy t.
Format:Audio CD
You've met many other bands signed to the increasingley fashionable Poptones label, now, Meet the BellRays.
Let It Blast, reasled on a self-produced label, really brings home everything about garage punk-we made it ourselfs. This album holds a blend of masterpieces devised from a range inspiration, from soul, to funkadelic, to punk, conbinding them in a mass of testifying guitar tracks, such as Dark horse pigieon and Black honey. Then just as we think we've heard enough The Bellrays, grab you by the scruff of the neck and pull out a track like Fuzzhead, with a heavy bass keeping the groove, and Hendrix style guitar solos, holding you in complete funkadelic suspense for 2.08 minutes, you'll love it.
This album is one that, in all honesty, puts the British garage punk scene to shame. The Bellrays, four Maverics, here to change the garage-punk scene from something amazing, into a mass of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of '99? 24 Aug 1999
By Adam Beales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(This review edited to conform to content restrictions.) Godfuggindam! It's going to be awful hard to top this one in the few short months remaining before the big one drops. I dunno who these guys/gal are or where the hell they come from, but this is one of the best rack'n'roll records you're EVER gonna hear. The other fan review posted here checks Tina Turner and that's not stretching the truth even a LITTLE bit. The woman fronting this band, she just fu@#in' WAILS like you would not believe, cranking out incredible doses of grit and fire. Looking at the record a certain way, I do have to admit that both the vox and the songs/playing do derive from fairly commonplace generic forms. I mean, there's no shortage of blues/gospel divas with lungpower and certainly we got enuf snot-nosed punks huffing on those shiny chrome Dee-troit tailpipes. The genius here is in the cross-pollination and the execution. What's weird is how doggone OBVIOUS the idea is, once you grasp it. The MC5 wanted to be Black Panthers almost as much as they wanted to rock, and Detroit is ground zero for both strains of American music on display here. The whole post-Mick-Collins garage generation worships at the feet of the soul-gospel-R&B fountainhead this band channels like they were seated at the right hand of Aretha freaking Franklin. Be warned (if yer a square unused to the production aesthetic of sloppy-ass garage rock) that the "direct-to-boombox-in-our-sock-cheese-smelling-practice-space" vibe of the recording does result in some muddiness. It doesn't matter though; the vocals and the energy cut right on through the fog. There's a purity and an intensity here that (God help me) even the Motor City 5ive never quite attained. This record NEVER lets up and there isn't one throwaway song in the bunch. I can't say enough good things about this! It just kill me to know that nobody's ever really going to hear this thing. This record should be HUGE! If the right people DID hear it, Lenny Kravitz would produce (and no doubt f@#k up) the next one, and it'd be blasting outta your in-dash AM radio for months next summer. I swear, this is the record that could break balls-out, hyperdriven garage-trash mayhem into the mainstream. Whatever you do, don't miss this. If you're a label assh@le, sign them NOW! Give them all your money!!! YOU ARE NOT WORTHY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ye gods 10 Jun 2001
By Brian Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Blast" is one of those records that makes me happy merely being alive in the same world that it's in. See, the BellRays *mean* it in the best possible way. There's no artifice, there's no polish, there's nothing there but this record living and breathing. Whether you spent a lot of time hunting this set down or are maybe looking at it right now on-screen thinking it might be a nice impulse buy, actually hearing it is like discovering what brought you to this music in the first place. Really, it makes you believe that things matter again, and they do. And it's one of the best pun..., nah, one of the best records of the 90s, period.

3.0 out of 5 stars early Bellrays 26 Jan 2005
By Mesnenor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first album by the current Bellrays (their earlier 90's funk rock attempt doesn't count). It was very crudely recorded, live in their rehearsal space. This band really is one of the best live bands currently working, and has been for the past several years. Their albums have been getting better and better, as they seem to be improving as songwriters. Thus all of the subsequent albums are better than this one. But this one is still a rocking testament to what they were doing in the late 90s.

Also, I don't know how the earlier reviewer got the idea that the Bellrays are from Detroit. They are from LA, CA.

4.0 out of 5 stars incredible rock 'n' roll 24 Jun 1999
By Michael Toland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The BellRays combine the sounds of '60s and '70s Detroit, i.e. the working class hard rock that influenced punk and the rougher side of Motown, on their debut CD Let It Blast - basically like Tina Turner fronting the MC5. They're absolutely frigging incredible, one of the best bands I've heard in years. They're also great live - the last performance I saw had jaded rock critics lining up to buy their CDs. Take a chance on this one, make them rich and famous, you'll love every minute of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock my world, anytime... 12 Dec 2002
By A. Althaea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have heard numerous complaints of the quality of this recording, which I respect...however, there is NOTHING that prevents each and every song from standing out like the proverbial beacon, beckoning and calling you to dig your heels in and groove. I wish I could relay just how much it means to have a band like this in my personal space. A rare find, often played and always enjoyed. Future now!
