5.0 out of 5 stars 1996's first classic... 23 April 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
Following 1995's debut album 'Methodrone', The Brian Jonestown Massacre released a trio of albums in 1996 - 'Thank God for Mental Illness', 'Take it from the Man!' & 'Their Satanic Majesties Second Request' - a title as great as the later 'Bringing It All Back Home Again'!

The 18-tracks here are a joy and showcase the typically brilliant sound of the band associated with the documentary movie 'Dig!' and the bands the Dandy Warhols, The Warlocks, BRMC & Beachwood Sparks. While the shoegazing-influences found on 'Methodrone' are here, there's a whole lot more too - notably a psychedelic edge suggested by the title. The first listen made me think of Psychic TV's 'Godstar', The Dukes of Stratosphear, Spinal Tap, Spiritualized, Apples in Stereo, The Jesus & Mary Chain, 'Their Satanic Majesties' Request', The Wondermints, Love & The Beatles...which has to be great?

Not many of these tracks made it to the excellent 'Tepid Peppermint Wonderland Vol 2' compilation - probably due to the fact Anton Newcombe & co have been so prolific. I'd say this and 'Tepid Peppermint Wonderland Vol 2' would be the ideal introduction to one of the great cult bands and a key part of the American post-psychdelic scene alongside Neutral Milk Hotel, The Flaming Lips, The Kingsbury Manx, The Warlocks, Beachwood Sparks, Mercury Rev, & The Animal Collective. Great stuff, though an ideal companion would be the Dandy Warhol's 'Dandys Rule OK' - another great Brian Jonestown Massacre record anyway - don't miss their upcoming tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars devilishly good 5 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Along with 'Give it Back' this is possibly the best offering from the wonderfully insane and prolific BJM. The Rolling Stones comparisons are undeniably just, but this band isn't the Stones 'lite' it's the Stones as they should still be and as they were at the peak of their creative powers. From the first few deliourous moments of 'all around you' (which is their own personal invitation for you to join the party - wait until you hear Anton 'find' the other 'supplies' for you, it's impossible not to smile) this album is instantly infectious. The fact that they've only gained a wider audience after 'Dig' is unfortunate, but, hey, that's what introduced me to them and I've bought almost all their albums since. This is a great introduction to an unfairly derided band - and in Mr Newcombe, by his own admission, a genius - and I very highly recommend it. Other songs to listen out for include - Miss June 75, In India You, Anemone.... oh all of them. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely ill 10 Oct 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I bought this as the first LP to play on my new record player and I could not be happier with it, the sour cream vinyl looks and sounds awesome, the organ sound is particularly epic.

4.0 out of 5 stars epic 18 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
how does this only have 2 reviews? that seriously pisses me off. anenome makes your clothes fall off and is one of the best songs i've heard in years. anton won't let the band be raped so you have to search but it is completely and utterly worth it, check out methodrone too and take it from the man. this is music
