5.0 out of 5 stars Aint No Joke!, 26 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Joke (Audio CD)
Just when you thought they could get no higher with Too High To Die, guess what? They go even higher with this their 9th album, and boy they are out there in realms only the enlightened can go.
This is serious head music with the breathtaking opening drum roll that spews Scum, hurling out some leviathan riffs most bands would die for! They strut out in such confidence of their unique and often plagiarized sound which has just gone up a gear, but when it comes to this no one does it better. They are a law unto themselves.
Nothing further underlines their majesty as Curt Kirkwood demands your attention and whispers more secrets of the expanding universe and takes you on an outta body outta mind journey! Listen to this man, he could cure you.
Head is where their ever amazing songwriting gets even better with a nice touch of piano and violin making this song really scary like a mad acid trip only to touch down minutes later where you left 8 hours ago! Get what i mean? Its that timespace/spacetime continuum. I always feel ive aged listening to their records only to get to the end and feel a lot younger!
Eyeball is pure disturbed surreality fun with an even crazier chorus, "since i hurt myself i feel so much better now. Suck my eyeball!".
Vampires, Predator and Poison Arrow maintain their famous dementedness culminating in Sweet Amonia my favourite song here: "I am the light beam i am the rock. I think i am i think i am. I am the the lime doll i am the dog. I think i am i think i am!", exclaims Curt. They are Anti-everything corporate and loathe the 'rockstar' mistake a lot of lesser artists get sucked into and that was another missed 'hit single'.
I guess thats why they're still around making great music which is what they've always been about. Sure i wish they had sold 20 million records but then they wouldnt be Meat Puppets would they. Its personal i guess and thats what makes them My Band!! Discover them and they can be yours too!
The whole album is loaded with some of their best ever work and has to be experienced as a whole.These are just some of the highlights. It will change you forever. An incredible album.
