5.0 out of 5 stars ahh... fresh air... deliver me from nu-metal, 23 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Rated R (Audio CD)
i'd just about given up on hearing a new(ish) band that sounded completely themselves and then i heard this. it's one of those albums that you couldn't imagine any other band releasing. there's a fair few style changes on the album but they all make perfect sense. there's a lot of guest helping out (particularly ex-members of the screaming trees) and qotsa still manage to keep the thing under total control. 'feel good hit...' kicks it all off and just as soon as that's done burrowing into your brain along comes 'the lost art...'to take up a few more of your cells... by the end of this album your head will have been plugged with so many favourite bits that you'll just have to play the whole thing over again. mark lanegan's guest vocals are amazing... the psych out of 'better living thru chemistry' will tap straight into your brain stem. ther are so many good songs on this album i could kiss the but of each individually but don't take my word for it... find out yourself. artistically the album is a perfect example of knowing when to hold back. they leave out things that lesser bands would have felt compelled to include but it makes the songs better. they play music like a stoned hemingway would have written. it's not quite rock and it's not quite metal but this album should have both camps drooling.

5.0 out of 5 stars the album that changed my life, 23 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Scream Dracula Screa (Audio CD)
maybe it's too late... maybe you've surrendered... maybe you've given up hope... but out there, somewhere, is a band playing straight from the 'dead sea scrolls' of rock and roll. rocket from the crypt are everything a rock and roll band should be... from the opening song of 'scream, dracula, scream' the crypt are playing to those feelings inside you that just know that if only little richard had fronted the clash and brought a horn section with him maybe world peace wouldn't just be a dream. they are bruce lee having a fight with elvis. they are a band that inspire fierce loyalty... they're the band you and your friends should have formed... they came to save music and as with all our saviours we just turned our backs. buy this album. then buy the rest of them... and if you get the chance to see them live sell your mother if you're broke, just make sure you go. as the singer speedo will have you testifying: "i surrender to the power of rock and roll".
