4.0 out of 5 stars Never thought anyone could make "Crush" sound good!, 27 Dec. 2001
This review is from: Split Single (Audio CD)
A four track CD from two of the brightest lights in the US underground scene, both doing one original and one cover version.
Dismemberment Plan are decidedly wierd - they thrown all sorts of things into a diverse sonic melting pot that calls upon elements of everything from jazz fusion to a beefy funk stew whilst still managing to fall broadly within the punk remit. Their original is as kooky as anything you will hear this year, going off at so many tangents that you don't actually connect with it.
However, their cover (of Jennifer Paige's heinous saccarine pop "Crush") is wonderful. Transformed into a heartworn lament of vocals and strings, its one of the most emotional moments of the musical year.
Elsewhere, Juno are much more straightforward, a band that certainly aren't afraid to rock out when the moment calls for it. They cover a DJ Shadow track in fien style....
This is one for the true fan rather than an intro to either band - and since the Plan's Change is freely available, why not pick it up instead?

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing Jonah has ever done - which is saying a lot!, 27 Dec. 2001
This review is from: Thriller (Audio CD)
Whew, this is one breathless ride... You know in advance whether this is going to be the CD for you or not - if you loved Far, Chamberlain, Texas Is The Reason or Onelinedrawing (and if you didn't then why the hell not?) then this will stick to your CD player like no album since the Get Up Kids' "Something To Write Home About".
The reference points are onbvious - Jets To Brazil's melodic strains have influenced the songwriting, Chamberlain the powerful drumming and Jonah - well, he will always sound like Jonah no matter what!!! "Lukewarm" is a great opener, the re-recorded OLD number "14 To 41" rocks like nobodys business...there are quieter moments aplenty, most notably the "back off or someone will die soon" refrain.
Put simply, BUY THIS NOW
