5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 21 Nov. 2001
This review is from: And Ten Spot (Audio CD)
I've got Funeral At The Movies and Ten Spot on vinyl....this seems to be a compilation of the two from the track listing. My opinions are that Ten Spot is one of the greatest LPs I have...I hated it initially, got into it and now adore everything on it. I saw them a lot around the late 80s and early 90s and I've listened to their more recent releases...they've lost a lot in power and dynamics which they used to have while on Dischord. For me, this represents their pinnacle and Get Your Goat was their last great album, although apparently the stuff since 1992 is still critically acclaimed, but it's not what I first loved about their sound. Check out the utterly astounding guitar solo three-quarters through About Three Dreams (I think!), the yearning 'Yes', Jade Dust Eyes, Speak, Summertime Train...it's all fantastic. It's not like their later operatic semi-Jeff/Tim Buckley art warble noodlings...but it's still all gloriously camp!

4.0 out of 5 stars Competent album from innovative American rockers, 12 Oct. 2001
This review is from: And Ten Spot (Audio CD)
Shudder to think; one of America's least well known and most deserving rock bands. This album represents the band at the peak of their powers, when they were writing powerful rock songs of the highest quality. The powerful, rocking, opening track serves as a statements of intent as this all-American outfit launch into powerchord laden extravagence. Their agressive treatment of Hendrix's "Crosstown traffic" belies their own extraordinary songwriting abilities. The following track, "Red house" is a classic of breathtaking power, and without a doubt the highlight of the album.
Shudder to think remain a relatively obscure band, with little success in Britain, but in my opinion they rank up there with rock giants such as the Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam.
