A Ribald Rhythmic Feast,
This review is from: Super Taranta! (Audio CD)
There is something unique, uplifting and ultimately endearing about
Gogol Bordello and their fourth album 'Super Taranta !'
Mr Hutz and chums return with a generous collection of fourteen new songs.
All the qualities we have come to love are here once again in spades.
Brash good humour; ribald rhythm; searing satirical obsrvation and memorable
singalong choruses . Crikey !! What more could you want ?!
The ensemble playing is, as ever, edgy, energetic and uproariously committed.
Mr Hutz brings this collection alive with his roguish charm
and rapturous, rasping vocal delivery.
You can almost smell the brandy on his breath in the passionately wayward
performance of 'Alcohol'.
If 'Suddenly...(I Miss Carpaty)' doesn't have you up on all four paws dancing
then you don't have a soul in your body.
'Wanderlust King'; 'Tribal Connection'; 'Super Taranta !' and 'Dub The Frequencies Of Love'
are all splendidly focussed performances.
'Supertheory Of Supereverything' has a bite every bit as memorable as 'Start Wearing Purple'.
'Harem In Tuscany (Taranta)' is a five star hoot !
There's not a wasted moment here.
Maybe even The Wolf has a little Gypsy Punk blood in his veins.
