5.0 out of 5 stars Immaculately conceived, 15 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Rattlesnakes (Audio CD)
This is an album that probably is Lloyd's definitive piece. The Commotions were one of the best bands of the eighties - and that does not date them in any sense whatsoever, since musically and lyrically, the whole record transcends that awful, limiting notion of datedness. It sounds as fresh and as poignant today as it did then; because what we are talking about is artfully styled songs that chart the intensisty of ordinary human relationships all of which is conveyed through intelligent and at times witty lyrical conceits: "Lean over on the bookcase/If you really want to get straight/Read Norman Mailer/Or get a new tailor." This stands time pretty well okay, and in terms of his recent work I'd advocate investing in 1996's Love Story as Rattlesnakes' true descendant. Both are bathed in the sublime guitarry bits of Neil Clark - a most underrated talent.
