5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant modern surf 15 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
The album has a much darker sound to it than early surf and is less torn up with the simple sort of bluesy I-IV-V progression, making the tracks all sounding very different from one another. (A problem with early surf I find is so much of it sounds very samey.) Even if you're not into surf you might like this as the instrumentals are very atmospheric: an often comparison is to Ennio Morricone, who produced all the spaghetti western soundtracks.

Oh and the vocal songs are more like poetry read over the instrumentals than pop songs, which isn't a bad thing as this isn't a pop band.

This is probably the band's best CD so if you've heard them already and like get it. If you haven't read it may I recommend looking up one of their videos on Youtube. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars great music for sofisticated ears 17 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Really great album if you are a surf fan, or if you never heard something like that.I based that on fact that many people in my country who don't know much about surf react extremly positive. Lot of good bass parts and wonderfull upbeat expirience can really pleasure you at this one. This masterpiece also contain a few lyric songs which made it more interesting. And of course I can't forget to mention very good role of Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey who are more then a great guests for any artists.
This is definitly my best buy recently and I warmly recommend it you.

5.0 out of 5 stars phenomenal surf 2 Nov 2007
By Debbie
Format:Audio CD
This is a phenomenally good surf-rock guitar album, by a great band who come from Croatia. I saw the Bambi Molesters live in a bar in Berlin and have been smitten by them ever since. They are jaw-droppingly good, this album is extremely cool in an old-school way, it's mellow, languid, sexy and if you own it you will find yourself playing it over and again. I've bought many copies to give as presents to friends and everyone lucky enough to have got one loves it and reports that they also play it incessently. Do yourself a favour and buy this album, you absolutely won't regret it. The cover art is cool too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who'd of thunk? 9 Dec 2009
By K. Holle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the best surf instrumental albums I've ever heard comes from a Croation band with, I have to say, a pretty creepy name by American standards. Maybe Bambi means something else in the Balkans. Though even then... OK, I'm digressing.

The point is, this is an extremely well-made and slickly produced album that combines some great guitar work with some excellent songwriting. It creates a mood of a lonely Mexican beach at dusk and transports you there. Actually, I may have to listen to this album right now because I'm currently snowed in and could use the break with reality.

Bottom line: buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's a nice gem 9 July 2002
By Radomir Milovac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
my personal favourites on this album are "theme from slaying beauty", "malaguena", "corazon del loco jorge", "final wave for the day" (this one is very nice, especially the end)and "double danger" (which has got same power and intensity as "theme..."). this album's got somekind of hidden beauty in itself so find it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Spectacular 23 Aug 2003
By Haris Pobric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Spectacular music from a great band. It is hard to pick any single song, but I really enjoy "Corazón Del Loco Jorge" and "Ice & Pinewood Trees". For those who get a chance, definitely go to see them live.

I'm from Croatia and I saw them yesterday(November 5th 2004)on a show in Zagreb performing with a U.S band called The Boss Martians. They(Bambi) were amaizing.Powerful and raw but in the same time skillful an childish. Buy the album and enjoy in the best croatian music export product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where is Quentin Tarrantino When You Need Him? 21 Feb 2012
By Orionboc - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There should be half-star ratings at least, if not quarter stars.

I cannot in all conscience rate "Sonic Bullets" FIVE stars, because it is not one of the best albums ever, but I feel bad giving it only FOUR, because it is far better than a 'B' ranking. 4.25 to 4.5 stars would be more like it.

Basically a combination of surf and drag music, suitable for film scores performed in a high quality fashion; fun, fun, fun. The Bambi Molesters remind me of someone, anyone that would be ultimately appealing to Quentin Tarrantino and used in one or ten of his films. More than simply background music, "Sonic Bullets" grabs your attention and takes you on a sweet ride. If you like The Ventures, the Bambi Molesters are an updated version. If you like The Shadows, the Bambi Molesters are better.
