This one doesn't hit you as immediately as Blast Tyrant. The songwriting isn't as tight because they didn't spend as long on it. Some of those BT songs were around for years with different names, so by the time they were released they were perfect.
This one's a lot more laid-back and sounds more like regular stoner rock, the way Slow Hole To China did. There's some awesome songs though, like 10001110101 and Gullah, and the new keyboardist puts churchy organs into the slow songs and Meters-style solos into the instrumentals.
They really should have kept Machine at the production controls. Blast Tyrant was punchy and gave Neil's voice the richness it deserves. Here the instrumental passages slip into the background and his voice sounds a bit thin. As ever, Neil's lyrics make you sit up and think "did he really say that?".
It took a while for BT to grow on me, so maybe i'll warm up to this one later on. But for now it's another solid Clutch album, but not in the league of BT or Elephant Riders.

Clutch's seventh studio album Robot Hive/Exodus was released in 2005 and had the impossible task of following up the band's astounding 2004 album Blast Tyrant. Despite the pressure, Robot Hive' nails it from the attitude filled open to its dreamy close.

Neil Fallon impresses as usual with his utterly unique and spectacular vocals and lyrics, which help make Clutch one of the most fun and interesting bands out there. Complex political theory and obscure historical references sit beside bizarre surrealist imagery and odd juxtapositions; all delivered in amazing croons, growls and soulful shouts.

The band; now augmented with keyboards, are on top form musically delivering their usual standard of impressive virtuosic moments mixed with the subtle and restrained styles that define them. Big riffs, noodley jams and extremely tight rock beats all sit seamlessly together from an astounding collective of brilliant musicians.

The album is one of strong highlights, such as the bluesy slow number `Gravel Road,' which erupts into a gigantic riff after its slide guitar intro, or the heavy and intense `Burning Beard,' which has a furious impact with its dramatically urgent verses. In addition to `10001110101,' which makes amazing use of the band's talents.

The album is solid all the way through however, and tracks like `Never Be Moved,' and `Subtle Hustle,' that don't have a definitive handle to instantly identify them by, like `the slow one,' or `the heavy one,' are still a brilliant set of top quality enjoyable rock music, that get better on every listen.

In summary; the album is just so masterfully crafted and the arrangements, performances and production are all marvelous making Robot Hive/Exodus an utter joy to listen to. If you like Clutch, get this album.

I buy several hundred albums every year and most, not surprisingly, are nothing more than bearable ways of passing the time. I have also been a fan of Clutch for several years now but felt their previous albums were often too exclusive. I therefore came as a surprise that when I put this on I was totally blown away.

This is the album Queens of the Stone Age should have produced. It grooves in a way not heard since "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" and Clutch seem to have finally lived up to the titles of their previous albums: The Jam Room and The Elephant Riders. Imagine the MC5 if Howlin' Wolf were the lead singer and was attempting to imitate Johnny Cash while covering Black Sabbath. This is how good this album is. I don't give maximum marks easily and hesitate to do so here but it is the only new album of the last two years I can imagine raving about to people.

I have to say, right off the bat that this is Clutch's best album to date. There's always a split with Clutch fans as to whether Elephant Riders or the self titled is their best (I preferred Pure Rock Fury before this came out) and I think it's a testament to how brilliant they are for their best album to be released 15 years into their existence.

For those who haven't heard Clutch, I cannot really articulate their sound in mere words. They're bluesy (a Howlin' Wolf cover appears here), they're funky and groovy and they can be pretty heavy when they want to be.

The music is top notch stuff; you can tell these boys do it for a living. Jean Paul Gaster is one of the best drummers I've seen live, he pulled out a 10 minute drum solo the first time I sawe them. The rhythm section is tight and grooving. Tim Sult, the guitarist is obviously a Hendrix devotee without going over the top.

Now it's Neil Fallon, the vocalist that really takes Clutch to a new level. He's the make or break point to wether you like Clutch or not. His voice is an acquired taste. It's very gruff and powerful yet not harsh as you'd expect. Described as 'the voice of ten men'!. His lyrics are extremely clever and witty too and you'll be singing them for days to come.

To those who have heard Clutch; then you will not be disappointed. It gathers together all the elements that make them an awesome band and is a culmination of their past efforts. It has the solidity and catchiness of Blast Tyrant, but has the technicality and querkiness of Elephant Riders. The songwriting and consistency is up there with the self titled. Robot Hive/Exodus is chock full or catchy choruses, grooving rhythms, & bluesy riffs & is one of the most infectious albums I've heard.

You'll just have to hear it to understand.
