2007's From Beale Street to Oblivion; is already considered one of the fiercest, catchiest and overall best sounding blues rock releases of our generation. Now here's an expanded edition of rock & roll music to make both modern hard rock & classic rock music fans' mouth water! Weathermaker Music is re-issuing Beale Street in truly spectacular style. Upgrading the artwork & packaging and adding visual digital enhancement was just the beginning! The rock n roll fan now has double the value of musical content, as the band has added nine Memphis-blues influenced performances from the planet's far reaches, as only Clutch can pull off! This double disc set includes two versions of Clutch's Top 20 single Electric Worry as well as the Cream cover Politician, recorded at the legendary BBC studios in London
Top Customer Reviews
From Beale Street to Oblivion takes on a much groovier and vastly more bluesy perspective.
The first two tracks are fairly deceiving being two of the simplest most directly rocking tracks they've ever written. Power Player will be a live favourite no doubt. The tracks that follow are a tad subtler, are more complex structurally and swing more than anything on previous albums.
White's Ferry starts off mellow lead by Mick Shauer's hammond organ and blasts into a typical Clutch frenzy. Electric Worry is another sure-fire classic, it'll just make you smile; great tune!
The Rapture of Riddley Walker, Oppossum Minister and Mr.Shiny Cadillackness (best song title ever!?) are also up there with the best on previous albums.
Beale Street doesn't quite hit five stars because it doesn't seem to be as consistent as the other albums. On Robot Hive I really couldn't pick a favourite track whereas here it was pretty easy. Maybe some tracks just drift by but the best are way up there.
Theres a slightly re-worked version of One Eye Dollar from Jam Room on here which I didn't really understand other than It's a great tune.
From Beale Street to Oblivion is definitely a great album filled with bluesy, catchy rock tunes and anyone into Clutch will love it. It just doesn't quite reach those giddy heights reached by previous albums.
It'll still be in my top 5 of the year though!
Twelve blistering cuts reinvent Clutch's familiar territory. This is not a band with a diverse sound, and yet the recipe never gets stale. The sound is both crisper and a little more bluesy than on previous records and Neil Fallon's lyrical abilities continue to astound. Nowhere will you find a more affirming dose of cynical pugnacity than when he sings:
'You can always tell the terrorist!/By his cologne and the watch on his wrist/It says I'm the type of man that can kick off anywhere/Kick off anywhere'
Other song topics continue to delight in true Clutch style, taking in tattooed vegans (on 10-speed bikes), arrogant alcoholics and pacts with the Devil, not to mention a somewhat surprising (but very pleasing) nod to Russell Hoban's post-apocalyptic masterpiece 'Riddley Walker', complete with in-jokes and fictional dialect.
A hugely invigorating and witty album. Get your hands on it if you like your heavy music groove-laden and brimming over with wit. I'm going to listen to it now.
Essential cuts: 'Power Player', 'Devil and Me', 'Electric Worry', 'When Vegans Attack' and 'Mr. Shiny Cadillackness'.
