This review is from: Return of the Giant Slits (Audio CD)
This album seems to get a lot of undeserved criticism by people that don't understand it. The slits weren't really a punk band as people have type cast them but rather a progressive band with punk origins. This album is a work of art and possibly a too radical departure for some but I'm pretty sure if they had stayed together the music would have continued further down the rabbit hole and the next album would have surely been different also. This album is not a collection of love songs in 4/4 time with familiar sounds but rather a primal sounding trip. The theme more about life being an animal here on earth than about love and breakups etc. The whole album has a mystical and surreal quality and is great to daydream to. It is easily as good as cut but unfortunately not as well received because people already had the slits pegged as a punk band when really they were masters of variety and this is evident even on cut with the clear Jamaican influence.
