Lil Jon & The Eastside Bo ~ Blast Tyrant (Dig)
Top Customer Reviews
Neil Fallon's vocals sound an octave or two lower, delivering, as usual, some of the best lyrical compositions around.The album production is definitely more polished from previous efforts, though whether that's a good thing is another matter.
As for the songs: Personal favourites are The Mob Goes Wild, Cypress Grove, The Regulator, Spleen Merchant, Ghost and La Curandera. I've heard Promoter live a year or two ago in a different guise, which I prefer to the new version ( I think it was called "The Beer, the Broads, the Broads, the Booze" back then )
Don't listen to anyone who tells you this is Stoner Rock. It's Rock, and Stoner fans may indeed like it, but at the end of the day,whatit is, is C-L-U-T-C-H.
When talking about the greatest album opener in rock history, obvious choices might be Nevermind's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' or Master of Puppets' 'Battery' etc, etc. Wrong! Its 'Mercury' from Blast Tyrant. The thundering arrangement of drums and riffs buzzes around my head on a daily basis. Its everything rock music should be, and encapsulates Blast Tyrant in its tight few minutes: crisp production, booming yet expressive drumming, groove-laden bass, tight riff orientated guitar, distinctive vocals and original lyrics. It slowly dies down to a lengthy buzz, until the bass line for 2nd track 'Profits of Doom' starts up and then the drums and guitar kick in. Then after Profits comes the catchy 'The Mob Goes Wild' and on and on. Every track is perfect; its perhaps one of the most consistant rock record ever made. There is also plenty of variety. From full on rockers like 'Worm Drink'and 'Promotor' to slower acoustic tinged southern rock such as 'Ghost' and 'The Regulator', there is never a dull moment.
My favourite aspect of Clutch however, is the lyrics. Singer Neil Fallon is a genius. Not only is he an amazing singer (and live, a charismatic frontman), he is by far the most interesting lyricist in rock. From the political to the nonsensical, topics can range from imaginary stories and situations to historical fact via metaphor, slang and intricate wordplay.
With this album the production is top class, you can hear everything clear as day and Fallon's vocals are on top form! His lyrics are still fantasticly creative and form one of Clutch's trademark features.
Blast Tyrant is notably catchier than previous efforts, which surely can't be a bad thing, The Mob Goes Wild, Profits Of Doom and Cypress Grove are some of the best tunes they've written.
They've added some acoustic tracks on here as well, which they'ce not done before. Don't worry though; they aren't soppy or soft, they still rock. Theres just more of an intense eerie feel to them. It further proves that everything the do turns to gold!
Hands down my favourite album of 2004, beating the likes of the mighty Isis, Mastodon, Old Man Gloom, Tom Waits & Neurosis. Surely a testament in itself to how good this album is and how good Clutch are. Roll on the UK tour!!!
