Customer Review

on 19 July 2009
For those not acquainted with the fantastic Clutch, this is an excellent place to begin what will almost certainly become an obsession. This album feels like such an expression of Clutch's soul, via Niel Fallon's unique vocals, Dan Maines's simplistic-yet-powerful bass grooves, Jean-Paul Gaster's pumping-yet-subtle drum lines and Tim Sult's technical-yet-soulful guitars.

Every song earns its place, as the album takes you on a journey through the cult of Clutch. Each passing song, despite being vastly different in sound, is unmistakably Clutch, although this album has a spacey feel that other Clutch albums don't possess. Songs such as the opener Big News I and Spacegrass swirl and dive around you, whilst Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw and the superb I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth are the more straight ahead metal which many would associate the band with.

The undeniable higlight is the jaunty Texan Book Of the Dead, in which Fallon, whose lyrics are, as always, impeccably inventive, sings nursery rhymes and Sha na na's witch doctor in the chorus.

Inspired throughout, this album is a must for any Clutch fans.
