By A Customer on 14 Oct. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This album is quite amazing. These guys rock hard but there is something quite beautiful underneath all the chaos that really draws you in. The album is mostly instrumental and what words there are are quite impossible to discern but words really aren't necessary for this music. Bands that spring to mind when listening to this are: MC5, Stooges and Hawkwind with a dash of Zep but this doesn't sound like a throwback band. I get the impression that they want to take spacerock into the future. The album is full of unusual progressions, insane solos, echoplexing, phasing and freeform breakdowns.
I'd say that this album will be revered by a certain type of discerning listener who's been dying to have their head pummelled by some psychedelic noise maniacs for some time.
If you happen to enjoy this record might I recommend their previous album 'Field Recordings from the Sun' which is just as refreshingly chaotic.
If you don't like it.....sorry.

Just a quick note to say what a fantastic album this is. Comets on fire squeeze more musical ideas into 44 minutes than most bands manage on 5 albums. If you not scared by music which embraces the past but also pushes the boundaries then this is a record for you. It's loud, peaceful, discordant, melodic, beautiful.

I can also recommend the latest from them 'Avatar'

Comets on Fire are a band I came across amid Julian Cope's excellent website Head Heritage UK- Copey waxing lyrical about their second (already)classic Field Recordings from the Sun (reissued this year)& previewing this LP, the Comets'third. The band came together in 2000 & recorded an LP in the kinda manner The Band & The Kingsbury Manx recorded their debuts (...in their own beautiful world).
Comets on Fire should appeal to anyone who digs any of the following: The Stooges (especially side 2 of Fun House), Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band, the more primal Led Zep (Achilles Last Stand or parts of the BBC Sessions), Cream, pre-Dark Side-Floyd, Blue Cheer, Mudhoney, Rocket from the Tombs, Lift to Experience,White Heaven, Royal Trux,Kyuss, or Jimi. It's a pretty wide remit here, but you'll know when you press play & the 7-minute plus 'The Bee & the Cracking Egg' kicks in; any notion that the Libertines or The Ordinary Boys or White Stripes or [insert here] are the future of music will just sound like a joke. The Comets ostensibly sound like loads of bands before, but manage at the same time to sound completely fresh: what gives?
This is primal head music- spacerock meets garage-punk, a wonderful balance between full-on-rockouts (with screaming vocals to rival Nick Cave in Birthday Party-mode or David Yow from The Jesus Lizard) & instrumentals (many emphasising More/Obscured by Clouds-style organ). Blue Cathedral is a complete trip & puts Kyuss' classic Blues from the Red Sun in context (a great LP, just the vocals are too metal, man!!!). Some of the instrumentals veer off into Kraut-ville, bands like Faust & Harmonia seem pertinent. Already this is contender for best LP of 2004 - & it's been a great year for records too.

Absolute pure musical brilliance. I can't stop listening to this album. It has such beautiful subtlety embedded within a firestorm of noise. A cacophony for the soul. Majestic.
