5.0 out of 5 stars An early 'noughties' classic!, 4 Feb 2007
This review is from: Worship And Tribute (Audio CD)
I hadn't listened to this in years, but decided to dust it off after hearing about the band's recent reformation and the imminent release of a (long-awaited) third album from the boys from Long Island. Boy, am I glad I did. Worship & Tribute is surely as sexy as screamo/post-hardcore/whatever-you-wanna-call-it-this-week gets, with its heart-attack guitar assault, and Daryl Palumbo's soaring vocals - not to mention nu-metal linchpin Ross Robinson's precision production...

Palumbo's voice is arguably the biggest draw of Glassjaw's music, and here he proves himself as something of a Mike Patton-esque vocal chameleon, as he lets his chords run the gamut of emotions and styles, to dazzling effect. Tracks like 'Mu Empire' and 'Cosmopolitan Blood Loss' are shot through with giant, sing-along choruses, giving us a prior indication of the frontman's pop sensibilities he was later to explore with Head Automatica. But nothing that band recorded comes close to the feral power and quirky inventiveness of tracks like 'Stuck Pig' and 'The Gilette Cavalcade of Sports', respectively. Both are simply stunning, much like the rest of this record.

This is an ambitious, accomplished and essential album and the fact that the band have reunited is cause for great excitement indeed. In the meantime, enjoy this!
