5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album Ever Made, 25 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Spiderland (Audio CD)
The Most Breath takingly stunning album ever recorded! if you have a good taste in music this is worth buying no matter what other music you like. Spiderland isn't burdend with a degrading genre its too good for that.rising from the ashes of the young hardcore band "squirrel bait" slints first album, though impressive was released at the tail end of the 80s gaining little fanfare. its follow up "spiderland", slints second, final and massively influential concept album has been raised to near mythical status since its low key release in 91. it has never sold much just to the right people.
the most noticable thing about this album is the sheer intensity of the songs. recording was infact so intense that several of the band were later administered to a phyciatric hospital. a prime example of such intensity is found in the albums swansong "Good Morning, Captain" the albums best, most eerie song. as the song builds to its mind blowing conclusion it is clear something special is about to happen. lead singer/whisperer/shouter brian mcmahan, later of the palace brothers, goes through the most of the song creeply whispering the lyrics. then in one phenominal moment the song explodes as he lets out a mind blowing scream which he shouted so loud he was physicaly sick. it is an amazing end to an amazing album you must buy and givin time love.
