Clear Spot blows every album ever made into Outer Space.
on 26 July 2000
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Spotlight Kid, blah, blah, blah. I thought I was really cool listening to Spotlight Kid and Trout Mask Replica in my bedroom that time. But let me tell you about the real deal: CLEAR SPOT. Whether you know it or not, this is an all-time classic record. Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band take RHYTHM and BLUES and pump it so full of electricity and passion and tenderness and crazy poetry that it just about blows apart. This is music for the heart and mind and body and who knows what else? It has a psychedelic edge that cuts into you with verve. Ever heard a gravel voice like that? Ever been picked up by rhythms and flung clean across the room? This album was made by a bunch of men in the desert. Don't ask me why. Get real. Get clear. Get CLEAR SPOT. 5 thousand twinkling stars.
