One of the records on my shelf. It got everything i need from a metal band; weird, heavy and really brilliant. Play it very loud.

Buy the album anyway though, It's ace.
This band certainly doesn't have a singer called Jordan Williams......

5.0 out of 5 stars ...Jesus Christ Bobby there's a screaming orgasm in my ear...what the drink? Oh yes..., 5 April 2008
This review is from: Jesus Christ Bobby (Audio CD)
...I was recommended the band minus by a random site so I thought I'd find samples of them...the description of the band said they were icelandic and claimed as "The noisiest band in iceland"...an interesting statement seeing as all I'd heard from Iceland that I liked before hand was Bjork and Sigur Ros...

...I heard the song "Romantic exorcism" and I was bitterly disapointed...because although yes the guitars were pretty loud...it had a very commercial and punky edge to them...then I saw a sample to another song "Chimera"...it was off their earlier work so I thought there maybe hope for them after all...there it was the loud guitar work...but then...yes...staticly muffled screams...I listened to the whole album and I'll throw in what I heard:

1. Chimera 10/10: The first song from the album and completely sets the chaotic mood...two bars of one chord with the bass wavering everywhere...until the guitars explode into a huge array of fuzzed out sounds (repetitive though they may be I love it)...then it stops followed by the scream of "FIND YOUR POSITION IN LIFE!!!" And the guitars come back in adding to a vortex of intensity...then it stops and the guitars play what I can only describe as an inuhman toy music box...after a few drum breaks and screams later they enter into a kind of chorus like thing...the vocals get more weird combined with the scream until again they enter what they did in the beginning into an implosion of macheo- villained insanity...then it ends with some raw static...and all this in two minutes...

Leisure 9/10: I don't have as much to say on this song as the song above...maybe because this song hasn't grown on me yet but one thing you can guarantee...it is raw and intense...(with a little electronica to give it the minus feel)...

Modern Haircuts 10/10: The song starts off fast but quietly with a guitar rapidly playing arpeggios and the bass follows...then they suddenly stop and the thudding of an electronic drums and bass briefly makes an appearance. The guitars then explode but the vocals remain spoken in chant until the scream comes back again...but then...the guitars stop with the bass still there the singer goes "This is completely absurd! I was bored! I was put into place!" Rather an unexpected spoken out words...then the scream and explosion of guitars comes back for more chaotic plinkery (not a word but I made it up...meh) and then the use of the words before hand are electronically altered later on in the song to loop over the other layers of this polyphonic sound until it sudenly stops...wow...eggs...

Misdo 10/10:...hmm...I'm not going to desecrate this song by trying to describe it because I'll fail miserably...like the above stuff...only with more of an edge...try it...buy it...set fire to it...

Electra Complex 10/10:...another gem I can't describe...or I'm just being lazy...but no one else here did a track by track review; so it doesn't matter...

Frat Rock 10/10:...I never tire of this sound but this isn't the best song by far...starts with the explosion of guitars and the singer goes "yeah yeah yeah" and then the classic scream is back with the guitars whirling around the sound...then...they decide to structure themselves a bit more and the guitars instrumentalise a very quick journey into a descending minor sequence...after a few more screams the voice is played around a bit more with the use of echo creating the creepy affect on single syllabled words...some more screaming...some of the words spoken out with the same guitaring used...followed by a very long static...that leads into...

Arctic Exhibition 8/10:..the most mellow song on the album...and because of that it's more reliant on electronics and instrumentation...which although are at an outstanding level...*sniff*...I miss the agression...

Liquid Courage 10/10/: Wow...could be deemed unlistenable by some people...you've been warned now...

Denver 10/10: Yep the screaming and fuzzed out dissonant guitars...although the guitars are slightly more cleaner then usual but that doesn't matter...after a little while there's a singable chorus...but to be honest it creates a very eerie affect on this album...the only problem is it's a sign of things to come...but the song is fantastic...even if it does follow the verse chorus structure...

Peccadillo 10/10: I should be bored of the sound by now...but I'm not...screaming and dissonant guitars combined with electronica...still...yay...

Pulse 9/10: Hmm...slightly more melodic from the vocals...nothing wrong with melody...no...I just feel a little out of place here...I'm scared...well then it makes it's point perfectly...

I would recommend this not only to people interested in intense agressive and sinister music...but to even those who like evil electronica (e.g. Aphex Twins Come to Daddy (pappy mixed version) being a prime example)...but to even those who like technical metal...and even those narrow minded metal heads out there (you know who you are) might like this...I'd recommend buying it...but then again it's your choice bobby...then no...Bobby...shut up...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly, brilliantly, perfectly, excellent!!, 22 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Jesus Christ Bobby (Audio CD)
Love. Fear. Anger. Confusion. [minus] have managed to develop a beautifully sounding collage of emotions onto this amazing debut album. I first heard the song "Enemy" and immediately thought to myself: I have to have this album! When I bought it, I was not dissapointed. This has been one of the best cds I have bought in a long while. Jordan Williams vocal talents are amazing and each track is mixed with hardcore energetic moments but also with slower, passionate sounds. This blend creates an amazing sound. [minus] are the metal band of the future, be part of it and buy this brilliant album.
