Extra Width/Mo' Width ~ Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
5.0 out of 5 stars Blues on the Inside, 8 Oct 2006
The Explosion play from the inside with soul. The Structure centers around minimilistic riffs, stuck together in ways that keep you guessing. It's got a live vibe with well thought out production layers. Sythns, distortion, echoes, delays.....it's all there keeping your ears alive over the central backdrop that is the blues explosion. This album gives you the impression that their jams are out there - literally exploding with energy. The title is referencing the genres that they demonstrate their knowledge of. The use of the fender rhodes sounding organ reminds you of the jams on the second side of 'Check Your Head' by the 'Beastie Boys'. The crazy screeching saxophone and it's mirrored… Read more

When "Kyuss" broke up Josh Homme didn't pick up his guitar for a year. After being asked to tour by Mark Lannagan with his band the "Screaming Trees", Homme had a renenwed passion for music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Grunge" album, 18 Mar 2004
I bought this record after i heard Mark Lannagan on "Songs for the deaf". His lyrics struck me on "Song for the dead", "Life's the art of dying, better do it right." I had high expectations of the Screaming Trees considering the high standard of work on "Songs for the deaf", and i wasn't dissapointed. This explores differant sounds with many instruments, and to some may be "over-produced", but the truth is the organ's, sitars and tabla's (to name just a few instruments that are used) all add to the album without making it seem crowded or pretentious. The quality of the recordings is of the highest standard, and the production is something that many should learn from. The quality of the song… Read more
