Album da collezione, il suono rispetto al passato risulta meno aggressivo, sicuramente per il passaggio ad una major, da avere

An often underrated or neglected cult 90's alternative band, influencing many with their chaotic and wild off-kilter tunes and equally wild live shows. As ever this is yet another of their strange, heavy groove rocking fine albums. For fans of Faith No More, Helmet, Korn, Dillinger Escape Plan etc.

While some might think the jesus lizard sold out by going to a major label instead of sticking with Touch and Go, Shot should blow even the more cynical away. Quite simply is an excellent album, the jesus lizard have always progressed as a band, and this is the album which shows them at their top dollar best. From the apocalyptic opening track, blue shot and thumbscrews - it's hard to believe the same intensity and quality can be maintained, but i'd be hard pushed to single out a track that doesn't work. This is an album from a band at their peak, if you want to get to know jesus lizard, or are a fan of alternative rock - buy this album because it's definitely worth the chance.

Without wanting to be rude, I happen to believe the exact opposite of everything stated in the review above.
This was in fact the first Jesus Lizard album I bought, I was 16 (1996) and I was sold on the rave reviews a lot of my favorite musicians around that time (namely, Kurt Cobain) attributed to this band. Note; I said 'this band', not 'this album'. Suffice to say I didn't bother to further investigate The Jesus Lizard for another 8 years, and that was only after an insistant friend assured me that 'Shot' was a really bad example.
Then I heard 'Liar' and 'Goat'. Its hard to believe the same band that put out these two blindingly powerful, psychotic works of genius, also put out this unfocussed, wobbly, half-hearted attempt at a change of direction.
It's interesting that this was their major label début, because it does report a sense of attempted high-concept, ('Trephination') not normally associated with larger labels. As a result it loses so many of the things that made them great previously - the pounding, hooky basslines most notably.
It almost seems as though they were pre-emptively trying to subvert the notion they'd sold out, by making a record that was more 'challenging'.
Instead, it just turned out to be hard to listen to, and unrewarding.
