This review is from: How to Operate With a Blown Mind (Audio CD)
This a blistering album of post-punk psychedelia which flows from mindnumbing intensity to smokey chill. Don't be alarmed by the seamingly insensible rhetoric which accompnies many of the tracks, it has its place within the album. The opening minute and a half of the album is confused monotone, which finally bursts into a monumentally energtic collage of sound and lyrics, that totally justifies the wait. The album continues within this vein, with the slow instrumentals only wetting the appitite more. On the downside it can take a while to get into the album and the initially impressive tracks tend to deguise the others. However, stick with it, this album is worth the effort.
