THE RESIDENTS

Over the course of an artistic career spanning several decades, The Residents have remained a riddle of Sphinx-like proportions; cloaking their lives and music in a haze of willful obscurity, the group's members never identified themselves by name, always appearing in public in disguise (in the old days... tuxedos, top hats and giant eyeball masks) and refusing to grant ...

Format: Audio CD
The Residents: The only band that hasn't revealed their identity for about three decades.... They play the most original music, behind their eyball shaped masks. Being to one of their shows, is a once in a lifetime experience.... Listening to Wormwood is also as powerfull. Listen to the real-audio soundclips, and see for your selves....

The Residents Return With a Vengence 3 Aug. 2001
By David Fields - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After a few years of writing CD-ROM, and educational television soundtracks the Residents returned to songwriting and being a stage act with this CD, and the tour that followed it.
Unlike the less polished "Roadworms" that followed this recording, this CD is packed with pop songs, experimental music, and the weird stuff we all want the residents to make noise about.
There's no doubt that the lyrics, and especially the liner notes of this recording will offend a number of people (like it did me a few times), and if you have extremely strong beliefs that are aligned with the Bible, this album is not for you. However, the music is the stongest the Residents have performed in years, and is not to be ignored by us hardened veterans of the One Eyed Whozits.
From the amazing (but too short) instrumental that opens the album, to the equally amazing, but more disturbing instrumental that ends this CD, this album is packed with pop songs such as "Burn Baby Burn" to the strong pathos of "Firefall".
The Residents have returned from the hades of soundtracks, and are in front of us with all their glory.

A thought-provoking musical analysis of the Bible 21 Nov. 1998
By Joey (herrgross@geocities.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Residents have brought us many treats over the years, which we've greedily devoured, but this piece is both musically satisfying and socially significant. It's a look at the darker parts of the holy Bible (like Lot's escape from Sodom and what happened after and the numerous naughties of King David). Though critical, the album's purpose (according to the liner notes) is "to neither vilify nor sanctify the book, but to allow it to be humanized." Excusing the split infinitive in that quote, the album is thoroughly poetic and thought-provoking. Wormwood is also a good introduction for the uninitiated Residents fan. An overall great album!

El mejor disco de los Rez en años 5 July 1999
By "saurio" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
El último opus de la banda más extraña del planeta es, curiosamente, su obra más accesible pese al conflictivo tópico que une a sus veinte canciones: las curiosas historias de la Biblia, esas donde el libro sagrado se contradice a sí mismo. Con respeto pero sin dejar su habitual mirada irónica, The Residents desgranan un conjunto de canciones que dejarán satisfechos tanto a los viejos oyentes de la banda como a todos aquellos que quieren experimentar algo diferente al adormecido panorama musical FM. Los mejores temas: "Burn, baby, burn", "How to get a head", "Judas saves", "I hate heaven" y "Kill Him!". Escúchenlo, vale la pena.

Reidents resurrected 17 Mar. 2000
By Jim Owen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Residents' musical output has suffered in the last ten years, and this latest offering brings them halfway back to where they once were. Those who are fans of their great 70's and 80's recordings might want to come back with this CD, though it sure ain't no "Duck Stab".
The textual content isn't for everyone (note the easily-offended one-star reviewer below), with lots of blatant references to human anatomy, but if you can get past that, you'll be OK.
Despite the dark content, this is probably the most musically accessible Residents album, with songs like "God's Magic Finger", "How To Get a Head" and "Burn Baby Burn" having a genuinely catchy pop flavor to them, if you can believe it from these guys.

My God... 26 April 2000
By "flipcake" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With out a doubt the best musical work ever made. Both the lyrics and the music are masterpieces. And not to mention the whole concept of the album, it really got to me. Never before has a little shiny disc made me feel like this. But then again the Residents aren`t anything like any other musicians, they`re so much more.
