5.0 out of 5 stars 'oh my god the bombs! the bombs are falling!', 10 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Burn Piano Island, Burn (Audio CD)
I could go on at great length that I'd never heard anything as chaotic as this before, and that it's opened my ears to 'noise core' bands such as the Dillinger Escape Plan, but the sheer chaos has been expressed in previous reviews in a manner more eloquent than i'm capable of... so i'll stick to the basics.
the reason i got this was someone said the blood brothers were similar to AFI. in retrospect that's the biggest lie ever, but i was young and impressionable so i bought it. at first i was just shocked at what seemed to be an album with no structure at all. however on repeated listens there ARE structures and even, yes, choruses that will have you humming along.
a good example (and personal favourite) is midpoint track 'celia and the silhouette saloon'. a spooky baritone guitar line sets things up, then suddenly the entire band goes f*cking nuts, with the singers screaming incomprehensibly about death, murder, cancer and other cheerful subjects. After about 40 seconds of this there's some random guitar noise, broken through by a drumbeat that ushers in the next part of the song, with the singers actually singing (one whispering like some kind of twisted priest and the other sounding like a soul singer on acid). This section culminates with the repetition of one phrase, 'where is love now?' as the instruments drop away. eventually the singers are singing without music to back them. they repeat their refrain one last time... and then the band go nuts again.
It's really quite an amazing (and for me, actually very moving) experience... as is every song on this album, whether it's for the delivery, the sheer madness, or the genuinely unhinged lyrics. get it! you won't be disappointed.
