Now the Anton Newcombe probably doesn't have an original bone in his body, nearly every song he records sounds like a complete rip off of other bands but I guess after 7 years as a band and as many albums you can be expecting less inspiration more recycling old music to make new (my opinion) HOWEVER...

>It sounds freaking good, who cares whether they're ripping off bands or not when they can churn out tunes like going to hell or Nothing to lose.
They also have a gift of extremely catchy songs and repetitive lyrics.

>Spun and Love are perfect examples you'll be singing the choruses in no time.

> More key tracks include the alternative take of Dawn (originally from Methodrone), Maybe Tomorrow and Lantern.

> However a few negative moments occur, Jennifer is rather dull and Got My Eye on You is basically the slowed down guitar of Not if you were the last Dandy with some pretty poor lyrics and vocal work.

>There are an array of instruments that are played superbly, prime example is the catchiest harmonica piece since Bob Dylan's the times they're a changin' in the song Wasting Away. Despite the amount of instruments you can still hear Joel's tambourine throughout and surprisingly even though the recording was incredibly cheap and rough the instruments avoid clashing to much. Great guitar riffs and finger picking.

>The Vocals are good as well, The lead singers have 3 vocal modes, sneer, drone and British. Yet despite this using a whole bunch of vocal harmonies, it actually sounds good, Anton and Matt know what voice will suit the song and the singing in the choruses are what really stands out.

Overall 8/10 if only they had marketed their music they could have been the next Beatles and the music industry wouldn't be so awful.

Man, where do I start. For the last month, all I seem to have done is listen to this band. Their old stuff. Their new stuff. It's getting out of hand. It's all great.

This album is really stunning and very accessible, perhaps more so than some of their other 90s albums. That being said, it is a masterpiece. When I'm listening to it, I look forward to listening to it again. When I'm not listening to it, it's cos I'm listening to one of their other albums. Bombs away baby, bombs away.

This a solidly consistent album with all the songs being pretty damn good. Due to the uniformity of quality few tracks jump out as killers - intially a disappointment - but after a few listens it reveals itself to be one of the best. Typical BJM beautiful melancolic 60's vibe. Love it!

It starts well and it ends well and it has a few moments in between but, on the whole, it's not a patch on 'Bravery, Repitition and Noise'.
I won't bore you with a rambling dissection of each track. The stand out tracks for me are the opener 'Going To Hell' and the excellent final track 'Wisdom'.
There were moments in between that reminded me of Dylan, Charlatans and (not surprisingly) The Dandy Warhols but I was left feeling slightly disappointed.
Still, not enough to be put off and I will be continuing to check out further BJM albums.BRAVERY REPETITION&NOISE

solid 5 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
every one of their albums is solid, and this is no exception. it's their 'major label' debut (and finale), so it's a little more tame than previous efforts, and ones that followed, but it's ear candy.
but do yourself a favour... go buy this on e-bay. TVT printed 100,000 or so copies and flooded record stores with it, but it only sold about 25,000, so there's tonnes out there. average price on e-bay is about $0.99 US.
dig.

Strung out and still Great 9 Sep 2004
By Bill Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Back in 98 I saw a video for "Going to Hell", the first track on Strung Out in Heaven by the Brian Jonestown Massacre on 120 Minutes. I downloaded the song and burned it to a disc and forgot about it. Recently I found and listened to the song and decided to order it off of Amazon.com. I'm glad I did. From beginning to end the album is great. Most of the songs start with an acoustic guitar and build droning layers of organs and electric guitars and great harmonies. They touch on alot of styles from the 60's and at times sound like mid 60s Rolling Stones, early Pink Floyd,Velvet Underground,the Byrds and others. Stand out tracks include "Going to Hell", "Lets Pretend that it's Summer", "Wasting Away","Got My Eye on You", "Nothing to Lose" "Love","Maybe Tomorrow","the Lantern",and "Dawn" but really, the whole album is one psychedelic swirl of excellence and brilliance. Anton Newcombe and company are great songwriters and its honestly hard to believe that this group isnt more well known. This is a great starting point for anyone just hearing about them or is curious as to how they sound. Now I'm going to try and get other releases available by the Brian Jonestown Massacre starting with their debut "Methodrone".

Thanks for the music..

A great place to start for the uninitiated... 20 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album may not be a favorite (1997's Give It Back earns that distinction), but Strung Out In Heaven is the closest thing the Brian Jonestown Massacre have made to a "proper" commercial record, and it's a great place to start for the uninitiated. Sure, the case can be made that Strung Out is a little derivative, but the Brian Jonestown Massacre have never made any effort to hide their influences. Bob Dylan, the Spacemen 3, Syd Barrett, the VU and early Stones lurk around every part of this disk, but given the lack of appreciation most modern bands have for history, is that really such a band thing? Sit back and enjoy, there isn't a dull moment to be heard here...

60's psych pop excellence in the 90's 31 Aug 2004
By Jack Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the best psychedelic retro 60's sounding albums ever. If you have most of the old stuff from the Stones, Jefferson Airplane, and the Byrds and want something new, yet with that good familiar spacey vibe than this is what you need. This is one of the best bands ever, they know all the good stuff from the better days. Tracks 1,2, and 5 are simply great. Some of it sounds like Nuggets garage psychedelia while others are blissed out acoustic numbers. Anyways some great stuff here, a must own!

go get your creed records 14 Mar 2002
By J. Whittaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i'm glad the world seems to hate this band and grab on to whimpy cheese-rock bands like creed. if it's a challenging, rough around the edges (way rough around the edges) rock band you're after, then check out the brian jonestown massacre, and see what rock and roll is all about: medication, pain, love, and loss. on second thought, stick with your creed records, you'll be happier.
