4.0 out of 5 stars Boris - 'Pink' (Southern Lord), 10 Dec 2008
This review is from: Pink (Audio CD)
Every bit as good as their (at least, I thought so) only release (so far) that I've heard of theirs 'Amplifier Worship'. A worthy slab of good stoner rock from this Melvins-inspired Japanese trio. Tunes that were most uplifting to fully experience here are "Farewell", the ripping title cut "Pink", their monster rocker "Afterburner", "My Machine" and the eighteen-minute epic "Just Abandoned Myself". Definitely, do check this title out when you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exremely loud and incredible, 7 Mar 2007
By 
Bram (North East England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Pink (Audio CD)
After listening to Sunn 0))) and finding them to far out for me I checked out there 'altar' album with Boris which (although very drone apart from the sublime 'sinking bell') I liked a lot. The next logical step was to tune in to Boris and 'Pink' has not dissapointed.

This album opens with a phsycedelic blast that's sudective and righteously heavy and the tracks only get more intense as 'Pink' progresses.

It's a bit of a mix of styles from slow and spaceous rock to tight up tempo punk all of which have been recorded at a really high level which gives this longplayer the honour of being the heaviest/noisiest album in my collection (its like standing next to the amp at a live gig)

I like Kyuss, Melvins, My Bloody Valentine, Part Chimp, Mogwai, Steve Albini and Boris sits well amongst those names. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots Boris Roots, 21 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pink (Audio CD)
After hearing a couple of boris tracks on Southern Lord compilations I decided I must get one of their albums. Pink is a great place to start if you don't want to get into the out-and-out drone stuff straight away. Whilst much of the music is stoner/doom, there are many other influences at play on various tracks. Nothing Special sounds like Raw Power era Iggy Pop meets MC5 put through a cement mixer. Blackout is reminiscent of Electric Wizard, Psuedo-Bread is a bit like a wierd mix of Motorhead and Jesus & Mary Chain. On the whole this is left field Stoner of the highest calibre and whilst the infuences are there they don't dominate the music...this is Boris!
