HASH(0x92c09744) out of 5 stars What a debut! 5 Jun. 1999
By Justin Oser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a magnificent album that mesmerizes me. In fact, it's so hypnotic for me that when I got it yesterday and listened to it, it had a very relaxing effect on me. I don't know if it would have that effect on everybody--it would probably jar most--but if experimental music and noise don't usually jar you, this album will relax you. Oh yeah--and the songs are incredible. I know people have compared them to Sonic Youth--and if you like SY, you'll probably like this--but Blonde Redhead certainly has a sound all their own and it's simply stunning.

HASH(0x92c39b40) out of 5 stars How can anything sound so much like SY and still be great? 10 Feb. 2000
By B. Fast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love how it starts. I love how you're thrown immediately into the opaque smoke of a dark, empty club. There's some screaming, and suddenly you're on the Sonic Youth Express into the tunnel voice of Kim Gordon. But I'm not criticizing - it's the same and yet different, SY but with better songs. If you could mix the best parts of "A Thousand Leaves" with "Dirty", here's where you'd be. Floating, falling, colliding, and repacking your chute with extra fat bass strings for the next trip. As with the Youth, it is the songs that stand on their own. It wouldn't matter who played them, they'd get any crowd throbbing. Unexpected bridges make you forget the chorus you promised you'd always remember, and suddenly the song is fading. Happy / sad, swirling in a marble cake of feedback and vocals, express the only true anguish ever heard in a rock song.

HASH(0x92a2e048) out of 5 stars Great Music, Mediocre Recording 31 July 2000
By Scooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Blonde Redhead makes excellent music. This album is a collage of feelings swarming around in both words and music, as are the other B.R. albums. I have to admit, though, that this has the worst sound quality of any of their work. The guitars are muffled, the voice too quiet at times, and the bass sometimes indistinguishable. Despite these technical problems, though, the songs still come across as great. The album is excellent and worth buying, along with all B.R,'s others. Their resemblance to Sonic Youth is small. Kim Gordon and Kazu Makino sound almost identical when they sing loud, but I've never heard Kim Gordon scream... I mean ACTUALLY SCREAM in a song, as Makino does in Astro Boy. The effect is huge, and the emotion invoked by this band is nothing compared to the rambling commentaries of Sonic Youth.

HASH(0x92a10570) out of 5 stars Rough edged debut held an undercurrent of promise 30 Jan. 2008
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of course this band's early art-rock drew tons of comparisons to early Sonic Youth, some of it completely justified. Although the singer eventually grew beautiful in her voice, here on the groups first disc she often mimics Kim Gordon's terrible talk-sing style, albeit with a little less nastiness inflected upon her delivery. Add to the mix mostly distorted guitar work centered around the sometimes pretentious lyrical delivery and it was easy to dismiss the band as another NYC wannabe. Even though it took a while to show, there were quite a few hints here that this band would continue to intoxicate with melodic commitment, despite being consumed with the noisy aspects of their blossoming career.
