Format: Audio CD
Rodan's Rusty (their only full album) is often dismissed for being Slint-esque and not much more. While this 6 track (natch) album from a Louisville band (natch, again) displays some of Slint's Post-Rock (grrrr, make it stop) trappings, it's far from a rip-off.
In fact, Rodan are more straight-up angst rock, albeit in a good way.
The album starts with the nice-but-nothing-special instrumental Bible Silver Corner, all carefully plucked intertwining guitars, and then segues straight into the two minute metal shout-a-thon of Shiner. The rest of the album's tracks exist somewhere between these two.
The Everyday World of Bodies, the albums centre-piece, is probably the standout track with its stabbing metallic riffs and thunderous drumming - and enough variety to justify its 11-plus minutes.
OK, the loud bit-soft bit dynamics have been done to death and there's nothing really new on show here but everything here works perfectly - really, it's hard to dislike.
This is a great album made before the Post-Rock rot set it. Admittedly, much of that rot was perpetrated by ex-Rodan members with the hundreds of musically incestuous offshoots that rose from Rodan's ashes.
Still great though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining 1 May 2010
By kabalabonga - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
No other group working in the post-punk sub-classification of math rock can or could match Rodan's intensity; "Rusty" is by far the most heavily aggressive release in this genre. With the exception of the all-instrumental opening cut, "Bible Silver Corner", there is a ferocity, an almost maniacal edge, to the rest of the tracks (particularly "Shiner", "The Everyday World of Bodies", and "Tooth Fairy Retribution Manifesto") despite the razor-sharp changes in transitional flow typically associated with other bands who work this vein. I once read a review of "Rusty" shortly after its release that compared Rodan's sound to the perfect marriage of Sonic Youth and Helmet, but I don't sense the virtuosity (and the preciousness that often merged together with it) characterizing those bands. Rodan's music is more visceral, is more to be reacted to then to be an object of aesthetic appreciation. Maybe it's the muscular, heavyweight, intricately structured drumwork of Kevin Coultas. Or perhaps it's the contrast between crisp, assured low-key spoken vocal delivery of Jason Noble (teamed occasionally with Tara O'Neil) and the solvent-gargling howls of Jeff Mueller, trading off verses during every song but "Tooth Fairy". Nevertheless, O'Neil's penetrative basslines and Mueller's most heavily-gauged sandpaper-like riffing are what separate Rodan from near-contemporaries Shellac; while Mueller subdivides the fretwork into multiplicative pealing during the quieter interludes within each song, you can sense that eruption is more preferable than cultivating tension. In the end it's what made the dissolution of this band after recording their only release all the more frustrating; together, they were heavy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great heir to Slint 15 Aug. 2009
By harrow - Published on

by lurching turns both brutal and delicate, rodan take the great dynamics of slint and add their own gorgeous bombast. if you enjoyed any of the early - mid 1990's quiet/LOUD bands (slint, hurl, codeine, etc.) and you somehow missed this jewel, well somehow it's still in print, so buy it now. you'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of the School of Loud and Quiet 28 Jan. 2001
By John Carswell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album changed my view of music forever. Before I understood nothing of patience with music, of letting a theme develop, of any song structure that was different from verse-chorus-verse...but the day I made this purchase was a fateful one indeed. Throughout its forty-two minute duration, the band members and producer Bob Weston craft unimagined soundscapes, pull meditative melodies from spare arrangements, assault the senses with aggressiveness unknown to any type of rock music, and create an air of haunting mystery that can only leave the listener addicted. It happened to me, people.
All of the songs stand alone themselves..."Bible Silver Corner" is the plaintive opening instrumental, deceptively introducing a mood that is both comforting and disturbing at the same time..."The Everyday World of Bodies" is Rodan's epic signature tune, with it's army of vocalists weaving together a mysterious story of love, betrayal, life, and death..."Gauge" is, in my opinion, one of the greatest rock songs ever written...the song manages to go everywhere in seven minutes but maintain a cohesiveness and pensive beauty throughout.
However, the thing you notice most on first listen will be the overall unity of the album. Weston aided the band in bringing these songs together as one...the track order coupled with the brilliant use of feedback ties the songs together into one work of art rather than several.
If you are a fan of any type of music with an experimental edge (especially those of an indie vein), you don't know the first of it until you get your hands on this album. Solid yet trippy drumming, fractured yet intricate guitars, pummeling yet melodious bass-playing, and the combined effort of three excellent vocalists make this album one of a kind. Ten stars, baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start at the root of this family tree 20 April 2000
By Sebastian Stirling - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Often overshadowed in the Louisville pantheon by Slint, Rodan did not opt for slowly brooding songs like that mainstay did on Spiderland. The liquid, nearly baroque opener "Bible Silver Corner" shimmers in instrumental bliss with only a few buzzes foreshadowing the chaos to come. The remaining five tracks are akin to a train rampaging down the tracks, almost losing control by the sheer speed and weight of the beast.

In the midst of all of the sheer energy present here, it's hard to imagine any melody surviving, but even at the most frantic points, there are moments of the deftly orchestrated "Bible Silver Corner." Every track peels away layer after layer of complexity.

The three vocalists scream like they have never been able to speak before. No matter what bands they have gone on to form, this is the one you need to hear.

Note: It will never get an official release, but track down Rodan's Peel Session, which features three songs that are more or less out of print, including Tara Jane O'Neil's finest moment, "Sangre," a ten-minute math-rock workout in "Before the Train," and a throbbing Jeff Mueller rocker ("Big Things, Little Things").
