Customer Review

on 29 January 2008
When I first heard TMV were releasing a new album, the expectation was high. Enormously high. Not only have they managed to hook me completely with their last three albums (excluding live) but it's hard to imagine where they could have gone from 'Amputechture'. Having purchased the CD this morning, listened to the bedlam all day, I am once again amazed. They've pulled it off- an amzing album, from the King Crimson references to the mind-boggling lyrics Cedric has layed down, this record has very few negatives...the only real one is "Tourniquet Man". I mean, it does make you think of def-leppard-cheese-flash-gordon-clad-esquish forgettable mullet-loving trash. And i really hate saying negative things about TMV.

Most interesting track, to me, is "Ilyena". Very different from anything I've heard them do, it exudes some sort of dark, sexually charged seedy feel, whilst thumping in one hell of a drum track (Thomas Pridgen's drum work comes to the fore on this album, really good work)- all whilst an amazing guitar piece wails in the background. Wax and Goliath rock, but seem more familiar.

All of which makes it worth the acclaim. Can't wait for their live performance, only one month to go...

A note, however- if you expect TMV to carry on with the sound they first proposed with Deloused and Frances, you'll be disappointed. It's not in their nature, never will be and I'm glad it's not. This is music in evolution.
