Unconditionally Guaranteed ~ Captain Beefheart
Unconditionally Guaranteed ~ Captain Beefheart

This album is often mentioned as one of the Captains's poorer efforts, but I'm not convinced. Sure, this album doesn't feature any of the patience-testing freak-outs of "Trout Mask Replica", nor any of the jazz-groove noodlings of later albums, but it does contain some good examples of where their 60's pop and blues sentiments can work together well. Only complaints are that it's a bit too short, and the Captain seems to be running short of lyrics in places, but apart from that, this is one of the more enjoyable Beefheart albums that you can actually play to other people as well!

Thirty seven minutes of electronic blips, drones, hums, whirrs, pings and bonks may not be everyone's idea of a good tune, but here it works well. The collage of soft quiet noises makes excellent background music for a chilled-out modern mood. Microstoria features Jan. St. Werner form the excellent Mouse on Mars, and if you've heard some of their more sedate moments, you'll have an idea of what's going on here. Sure, you can't dance to it, and it's difficult to discern where one track ends and another one starts, but if that's what you're after, you're missing the point. File under space age wallpaper music!
