Biography

Somewhere between the five full-length albums and a decade-long road test across the highways of the world, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club found their way.
Eleven years after bassist Robert Levon Been and guitarist Peter Hayes started playing gigs around their hometown of San Francisco, the duo has now started over, with a new vision, a new drummer, and the gift of a future unknown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to form 24 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a real slow burn album by one of my favourite bands and will be great to hear them live on current tour. My only disappointment was I bought this item as a special packaging and it arrived as standard CD case even though the invoice stated Special Packaging disappointed with CD package but not the music content

3.0 out of 5 stars Patchy 22 Mar 2013
By jjonesp
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a massive BRMC fan and have been eagerly anticipating this latest release. The previous album, Beat The Devil's Tattoo contained (in my opinion) 3 of their absolute best tunes and a lot of others that missed the mark somehow. It wasn't that it was a bad album but definitely one that I would struggle to listen to the whole way through now. Spector At The Feast is similar, however with a better success rate.

It starts off with the moody 'Fire Walker'. This track is superb. I've read a couple of reviews complaining that it never quite takes off. They are missing the point, it's never meant to. It's perfect as it is, slowly guiding you into the album before the raucous cover of The Call's 'Let the Day Begin'. For those unaware, bassist Robert Levon Been's father was the lead singer of The Call and recently died while on tour with BRMC, working as a sound engineer. The quality certainly doesn't let up with the next two tracks 'Returning' and 'Lullaby', the latter being a gloriously lush indie-pop track and possibly BRMC's finest of that type to date.

Then comes the mid album slump. 'Hate the Taste' seems almost a parody of the excellent Ain't No Easy Way from their 2005 album Howl and 'Rival' is a rocker that completely misses the spot. Things improve with 'Teenage Disease', more of a spit than anything else, it packs a mighty punch and should sound excellent live. The tempo slows down again with the ambient 'Some Kind of Ghost' which is not nearly as good as it should be. 'Sometimes the Light' is good however, very like 'Open Invitation', the track tagged onto 'The Line' at the end of Howl. 'Funny Games' comes and goes before you're left with the two epic tracks of the album. 'Sell It' is truly monstrous BRMC flat out rock at its finest.

BRMC are my 2nd favourite band and I hate rating one of their albums 2 stars but that is what the album deserves. Their debut album was a 5 star record with a unique sound. Their third album, Howl, is another 5 star record and an excellent folk/acoustic album. Since Howl the band have mixed the sounds of their first three albums and have produced good records but the albums have never truly flowed from having that range. For every album since Howl some fans have been writing reviews saying that they want another album like that. I've thought these fans annoying...until now. It really is time to go back to that.

Specter At The Feast just sounds too much like they're trying to replicate old sounds and are going through the motions for what made successful BRMC rock songs in the past. Normally Peter Hayes and Robert Been compliment each other really well and both produce excellent songs, with for me Hayes normally being slightly better than Been. I don't like one song that Hayes does on this album, where as Been has the excellent Lose Yourself, Lullaby and The Knife, which are all songs with feeling - he also does a good job with Let The Day Begin and Returning. More songs like these and we have a brilliant album. But even though Been's efforts sound great I just can't give the album more than 2 stars. Hayes wants to rock too hard where as in between this album and the last he wrote my favourite BRMC song Done All Wrong, as well as The Absent. It is time for a haunting folk/acoustic album because that is what they're best at now. If they don't do that then at least they need to choose a direction/theme for an album otherwise it just doesn't flow and sounds a mess.

If they have to try and write rock songs then they need to work much harder in order to repeat the brilliant songs such as Whatever Happened To My Rock And Roll, Heart And Soul etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a classic, but not quite 3 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have lived with this album for over a week now. I always think you need a few plays before you can do any review. Firstly, I am fan of this band and therefore, there will always be a bias that you want to like it. I appear to be in the minority in that I was slightly disappointed with the previous album, Beat The Devil's Tattoo. My favourite BRMC albums are Howl and Baby 81. I thought that Beat The Devil's Tattoo was a bit of step backwards from the previous two but Specter is definitely a step forwards.
There are some of the best songs that they have recorded on this album, especially the slow, moody ones. Really enjoying Returning and Lullaby at the moment plus Lose Yourself.
It's not a classic though as there a couple of tracks that I can live without.Teenage Disease seems forced and Sometimes The Light never goes anywhere. However, these are minor quibbles.
I also have the three bonus tracks - none of these would have improved the main twelve tracks of the album but Angel Baby is probably the best of the three.
Overall, I think it is a bit different to earlier albums but this is not necessarily a bad thing. Bands have to evolve over time and I think this is an improvement.

Dirty blues rock at its finest... if you liked the previous albums by BRMC you'll like this. Doesn't bring anything new to the table but it's no worse for that
