4.0 out of 5 stars it's a grower, 25 Jan 2006
This review is from: Drum's Not Dead [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
been listening to it for a couple of weeks now - as with 'They Were Wrong....', there's definite shades of Sister-era Sonic Youth and the vocals sound alot like The Beta Band in places.
they really have added alot more to the mix this time around - it's hard to believe that this is the same band who debuted with "They Stuck Us All In A Trench....", radical is hardly the word to describe the progression these boys have made over the past few years.
obviously "Drums Not Dead" features some excellent percussion, the band are currently playing with two full drum kits - i'd say the guitars are less wild this time around and there's less of an analog feel to this album than the second lp.
there's some very chilled moments during tracks such as "drum gets a glimpse" & "wrong coat for you mt. heart attack" amongst others - while "let's not wrestle mt. heart attack" & "drum & the uncomfortable can" are pretty damn noisy - which nicely compliemnt these quieter songs ... i'd definitely say this lp features their most experimental guitar work to date.
it's their most cohesive and conceptual work to date, and i for one cannot wait for the full release. the dvd is apparently gonna be wild!
a definite must :)
