5.0 out of 5 stars N. F. I.
Playing on this record we have:
- Songwriting supremo Lou Barlow on bass and vocals.
- Guitar hero Imaad Wasif on, you guessed it, guitar.
- All backed up with Russell Pollard on drums.
Any Sebadoh or Alaska! fans will either own this record already or be very, very excited at the news of its existence.
Lou Barlow has always been a top-drawer...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag
If you can find a copy of this for a couple of quid like i did it's a good purchase.

I primarily bought it for the track Fuse but there are other good tracks... beware some tracks
are a bit dull but that goes for all Folk Implosion albums.

Regards Ian

Lou Barlow has always been a top-drawer songwriter and this record proves he is getting better with age. The structure of Lou's songs on this record are superb. During the first few listens it's hard to predict what's coming next - which is a good thing.
Imaad's has created some really addictive guitar licks that entwine Lou's songs with expert skill and melody. Lou must really enjoy working with this great musician. For more examples of Imaad's work, check out the latest Alaska! album Emotions.
I think I've written enough. Had to write something positive about this record, as the only other review gave 2 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars typically barlow, 22 Jan 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The New Folk Implosion (Audio CD)
this album is no big departure for lou barlow, the music is consistently and clearly of his own hand and includes some strong ballads mixed with more grungie type sounds, well worth the money but dont expect any surprises

1.0 out of 5 stars Regarding Amazon Stock, 9 Jan 2009
By

This is regarding the stock Amazon has.

I was bought this for christmas, and both the first copy and replacement were badly marked/scraped on the covers (coming off in places) and dusty inside and out.

This is obviously old stock which has been sitting for a while.

I would suggest buying from a different source.
