4.0 out of 5 stars very odd but ultimatley satisfying organic noise...maybe[?], 29 July 2004
This review is from: Beaches & Canyons [VINYL] (Vinyl)
i bought this just on impulse [its on fat cat and it has a nice cover...bit psychedelic :) ] so i was damn surprised when i listened to this through.
black dice are a four piece from brooklyn who started off as a hardcore punk band. but now they could be called both punk rock and hardcore, but not at the same time. there is punk guitars and hardcore screams. punk noise and hardcore scratching. but that doesnt even begin to describe this aural attack. maybe organic is a better word to describe this...hmmm
beaches & canyons is five tracks each marking up the ten minute mark and each sounding totally different but always working perfectly well. for example, the first two tracks are pretty ambient and not exactly noisy, but then go on to track five and you are treated to quater of an hour of static noise guitar drones and inhumane screamings /cut for a seconds silence/ and back to more static and noise. it sounds horrible. maybe it is. its definatly not for everyone. but it is so densely layered and so well played and thought out, it works.
so what more can i write..i really dont know. but this album is a gem. there are faults, maybe some of the tracks/sections are a little overlong and maybe there could be more variation..but isnt that the point?
