talkin' 'bout the blues ladies and gentlemen,
By A Customer
This review is from: Acme (Audio CD)
yes, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. a magic fusion of retro rock 'n' roll cuting thru modern blues/jazz vibes. truly one of the most original records from one of the most original recording artists of the day. the obvious stand out tracks are; talk about the blues, with it's post-psycheldelic bazz fuzz noise and organised chaos of stopping, breaking and starting topped with nonsence but fitting lyrics. also; torture, with screams of 'BLUES EXPLOSION!' and chunky rhythms. thru the whole album, there is good consistency with sweet raw melodies and definite phatt beats holding it all together. the only criticism i have is that it's too short, and doesn't allow for enough variation between tracks. but who am i to diss artistic licence? so, in short; buy this album.
