A wizard, trash and no star?
, 21 May 2008
This review is from: My Bloody Underground (Audio CD)
Oh Anton, once again you say so little, and prove so much. I am a fan, so i look further between the cracks than some might, and there is genius, as before, but it's a murky search. Early sonic youth, MBV, Faust, Spacemen 3 and Ride all spring to mind, but therein lies the problem, it's a bit more evocative of other peoples work than previous albums. Yeah-Yeah is the closest to a single we get, not that it was ever about the singles, most of the albums sound like greatest hits packages anyway. I guess the chance was lost with Dig!, and the BJM are destined to remain on the outskirts of obscurity. In essence the latest release sounds like a back to basics jamboree bag that once again proves there is no compromise on the horizon.
