5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody great, 2 Jan 2002
This review is from: Bloody Kisses (Audio CD)
I was a bit surprised to see this didn't get five stars like the other Type O albums. It is their creative pinnacle in so many ways: just look at how the lyrics are used. The pacing is incredible. Not a beat is wasted.
Admittedly, some of the songs have to be heard in the context of the whole album, but all of them have their rewards.
For me, the 'Jesus Christ looks like me' climax to Christian Woman is one of the most thrilling passages in all rock music. It's so direct, and has such momentum.
Other reviewers are right to note that this is an album which requires some investment from the listener. But so does any great album. Stuff that's immediately accessible soon palls.
Ultimately, this is an extremely listenable record. The stuff Steele is tapping into runs deep - he's managed to pin down emotions that a lot of people can relate to. The result is dark, brooding - and a masterpiece.

I've recently got the Roadrunner collection.

This album sticks out like a sore thumb. I still like Life is Killing Me.

Great albums. Great band.
