another brilliant clutch album,
This review is from: Pure Rock Fury (Audio CD)
clutch's fifth studio album released in 2001 is another belting album that strikes as great on first listen but repeated listens reveal the album to be even better than that,it is clear that this album isnt as bluesy and groovy as their latter output but thats not to say that this album isnt catchy as there are some amazing riffs laden throughout,it is certainly more of a rock album than a blues based groove n roll album is what im getting at.
The album opens with a metal riff drenched in thrash and you will get that head of yours banging but its a clever ploy because after thirty seconds the sound of clutch is evident as they ditch the metal riff for a rockier one and business is restored as neil fallons voice brings the glory to the song.On pure rock fury fallons vocals are again effortless but not as refined as they would become on blast tyrants but he is still the ultimate frontman for this kind of music,and again his lyrics are kooky and insane yet intelligent,go figure!
The album contains two live tracks that showcase the brilliance of clutch and the main tracks worth pointing a finger at for their excellence include 'careful with that mic','the great outdoors''smoke banshee','frankenstein' and the brilliang 'immortal'.There is enough melody to sink the titanic here and also enough to rock you,after all the album is called 'pure rock fury',i need say no more.
