4.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic dance with fuzz and Beck 23 Jun 2011
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Tobacco is the guise of Tom Fec the frontman of Black Moth Super Rainbow. This is his second solo outing and come out on the back their album Eating Us which was a great slice of summer and this might just over shadow that. Its a fuzzy, electronic workout fizzes into action with Constellation Dirtbike Head which puts its distorted vocals into play against an electronic fuzz and drums backing. A bit breathlessly the album the launches into the first of two numbers featuring Beck (this one is better). Beck's vocals are chopped up are laid over loud fuzz and electronics again. This wouldn't sound out of place on some of Beck's more adventurous offerings. All the tracks here are short and punchy numbers with a driving electronic feel, vocals that are only part of the mix and not leading it - if they are there at all. Lyrics aren't even a consideration as they fill one page of the cd booklet.

The stand out track here though is Sweatmother. Only two minutes long. Sounding as dirty and alive as the name suggests it really brings all the sounds into play and the breathy, distorted vocal works well against the electronics.

As an album it does tend to get a little repetitive towards the end. But any of the tracks can be played by themselves quite happily. If you want to hear something a little different with lots of summery electronics, drum beats, and that's almost psychedelic in its beats and use of sounds then this is the ideal purchase. It certainly is different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maniac Meat 7 Feb 2011
By pibbler
Format:Audio CD
One of my favourite releases last year. Bought on recommendation. Mental, funny, confusing, must be played loud. It's totally demanding - I can't function when this is on. Lots of tunes in here and it sounds great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to an f'd up afternoon alone in my underwear 30 May 2010
By D. J. Galante Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It just fits, this record. The beats, the tones, it's old but it's new. I probably shouldn't write a review for a record I've played once and haven't even finished yet, but screw it, that's alcohol and isolation for you. If you were interested enough to look this up, you should have bought this already. It is what it is, a dude bringing the 70's through the meat-grinder of the now. Ugly. I think some platinum artist appears on this. Screw him. Fodder for stickers on wrappers and pushed units. "AIR as the Toxic Avenger", how's that for sticker fodder?

Shut up, just shut up.

5.0 out of 5 stars My jam 20 Sep 2010
By Jason Harrington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't even want to play any of my other CDs anymore. I just want to hear Maniac Meat. The drum breaks are a little slow but slam hard as f***, and every synth line makes me pump my fist. If you hate vocoder, then that's too bad, because it has never sounded more gross and sticky and rotten, fading between pitched-down meltyness and candy-robot layers. Pitchfork Media described the sounds on this album as being similar to Nintendo dirtbike sounds, and I would agree. It's like you are stuck in a Pole Position game and you suddenly start questioning if your really driving strait into hell. But, don't get confused, because this is a really poppy album and not doomy at all, however, the more you listen the more it's like some evil Willy Wonka s*** that leaves you hypnotized. I can't even describe this, because it's so punk like Death From Above, but so bubbly like Air, and it kills everything. Basically this is the best music ever! I would take this over a candy bar any day. Apparently, per Wikipedia, the artist claims this is inspired by old 80's aerobics VHS tapes. That's about right.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is your brain on drugs 6 Sep 2010
By Tart Green Apple - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a grower, not a shower. First the Beck tracks appealed to me. Then "Lick the Witch". Etc. There are so many layers to this production that you will be constantly finding new favorites. Followers of 'Skinny Puppy' or SP side project 'Download' will appreciate this. In my opinion TOBACCO has grown well beyond the confines of 'black moth super rainbow'. TOBACCO is BMSR untethered, whipping and lashing tentacles in the sonic abyss. It's like slow seep of battery acid in a lobotomy crack to your brain.
