5.0 out of 5 stars Motel California,heavy funky and it's got everything in it
This is a trippy, infectiously heavier album by ugly kid joe. You throw it on, you need a good few listens to get your head around the vibes, it's laid back, yet punchy but still grips you by the balls. To sum it up... it's like a missing piece to the musical jigsaw of this crazy industry...stand out tracks; would you like to be there, sandwich, shine, it's a lie,...

3.0 out of 5 stars some really good stuff here but the rest is forgettable
A mixed bag this, Ugly kid joe's final album, tracks like it's a lie, dialogue, sanwich, would you like to be there and father are excellent. Others very good but the rest are pretty weak.
The sound is a bit more matured from the previous albums and I wonder if the band would have been better recieved had they had a better name.

Miss this album at your own peril.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Album From Ugly Kid Joe, 20 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Motel California (Audio CD)
This is probably the weakest out of all the Ugly Kid Joe albums, but it's still good. This album like the others mixes up the "Ugly Kid Joe effect". Fast thrash metal, and fast rock riffs, together with excellent drum and vocal work. This album also contains some much slower tracks. Tracks such as "12 Cents", and "Rage against answering the machine" are very good, but nearly all the tracks on this album are good as well. The thing with this album is that you have to give the tracks time to really start. By this I mean that a lot of them start fairly slow and appear pointless, but after 1-2 minutes has ellapsed you really begin to feel what that Ugly Kid is capable of. Overall this album is a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A more mature Ugly kid joe, 21 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Motel California (Audio CD)
I have all of the bands albums, This album shows a more mature approach to the Joe's style of music. We still have heavy guitar but now the use of sensitive melodies and in parts a more refined sound than that of their previous releases. A good buy for any Joe fan, but not their best.
