MotherlandMotherland is the third solo album by Natalie Merchant, released in 2001. The album is musically eclectic, varying from Middle Eastern violin-reggae beat fusion This House Is on Fire to 10,000 Maniacs-sounding Tell Yourself. Folky Motherland precedes stylistically Merchant's next album, The House Carpenter's Daughter.
The album is dedicated to the victims of September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks upon the United States. However, the recording was finished two days before the event, so the songs are not influenced by it. The event has still affected people's interpretations of the lyrics. Additionally, the cover was changed at the last minute to accommodate the post-9/11 world. Her original concept for the photograph on the album cover was a picture of children in a field wearing oxygen masks. We shot these kids in upstate New York on Sept 10, she recalled. And then we were going to reshoot on the 11th. Of course we canceled the session. The day I brought the pictures into the city, there were articles on the run here for Cipro and gas masks. I was getting pressure, anyway, from the record label, friends even, that the image was too controversial. So finally I gave in. A photograph of a demure-looking Ms. Merchant was used instead.1.

In My TribeIn My Tribe is an album by the American alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs, originally released on Elektra Records in 1987. It was their second major-label album and their first to achieve large-scale success. John Lombardo, Natalie Merchant's songwriting partner on previous albums, left the band in 1986, prompting Merchant to begin collaborating with the other members of the band, most notably Rob Buck.
In My Tribe was ranked No. 65 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.1. What's the Matter Here?

I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album By Earl SweatshirtI Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt is the second studio album by American rapper Earl Sweatshirt.
On his first studio album, 2013's Doris, the most mysterious member of L.A. shock-rap gremlins Odd Future proved himself by exploring real-life alienation. On his excellent second LP, Earl Sweatshirt keeps deepening his game - spooling out dense, mordant rhymes over zombifically blunted tracks as he somehow sucks you into his sunless reality. It's amazing that music so claustrophobic can be this engrossing.
As always, Sweatshirt is most compelling when he's going toe to toe with his own demons. I spent the day drinking and missing my grandmother, he raps on Huey, perfectly summing up the music's desolate vibe. Mantra opens with some maniac grandstanding (With a cleaver and a .30 and some twisted weed/I pick one and let the crimson leak), then slides into a downhearted breakup song. Grief is a harrowing shut-in snapshot: I just want my time and my mind intact/When they both gone, you can't buy 'em back. At just 10 songs in a half-hour, I Don't Like Shit is surprisingly concise - even if it's sometimes dark and paranoid enough to make There's a Riot Goin' On sound like the Three's Company theme. And who needs more? Even a half-hour with Earl is enough to leave you with a lifetime of creepy memories.1. Huey

Ultima II MassageTOBACCO can't have nice things.
On his third album, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer deepens his approach
to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage widens a jagged swath through the dude's
own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to
some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state. "I spent a lot of time
breaking it in all the right places," says TOBACCO. "It ends up making the whole
thing breathe - sometimes gasp for air. It feels more alive." Immediately after
nishing 2010's Maniac Meat, he went to work on the beat-addled series begun
with Fucked Up Friends in 2008. There were notable breaks en route to now - a
surprising commission to remix White Zombie's "Thunder Kiss '65," a new BMSR
record (Cobra Juicy), and producing Demon Queen's Exorcise Tape with vocalist
Zackey Force Funk - but he saved the worst for last, amassing the most
misanthropic material for Ultima. To wit, SPIN dubbed early share "Lipstick
Destroyer" a "junkyard takedown of Daft Punk's beloved, pristine electro."
TOBACCO explains his modied approach: "I wanted to push each song just
enough, so that even when the album's at its wildest, it's something you can zone
out to. It feels like a denitive end to a concept I've been trying to perfect forever.
Maniac Meat was linear. This time I wanted to do a lot of di!erent things and have
them come together as one meditative piece. At least for myself."
Which, oddly enough, makes sense. This is easily TOBACCO's most diverse set to
date - his own Stereopathetic Soulmanure, but about that 1-900 hotline life:
massage parlors, plasticized sleaze, fake tans, old dial-ups to the fan clubs of
dead B-actors. Fittingly, the album's only contributor is Beck music director Brian
LeBarton who shrieks as Notrabel on the grimy freak-out "Streaker." At 17 tracks,
Ultima is stacked with beautifully perverse hits - from the sickly sticky "Eruption,"
to the wobbly demon swaggerer "Face Breakout," to the distorted punk spazz of
"Dipsmack," to the apocalyptic sepia ambience of "Spitlord." You may hear
disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan,
or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of '80s horror icks. Or the sun
exploding and everything you've ever loved melting. Again, TOBACCO was just
trying to make meditation music.
But to nd that rotted sweet spot, as always, he had to subvert his pop urges.
TOBACCO went back to the cassette decks he started o! with - analog weapons
of distortion to compliment his hissing vocoder and blown rhythms. Any moment
that felt "just right" was brutally assaulted until ugly again. All to accomplish one
end: "This might be my most purposely difcult album yet, but I promise if you let
it in, it can fuck you up."

Gore Metal: A NecrospectiveOriginally released in 1998, EXHUMED's now-classic debut full-length, Gore Metal, was a boundary defying offering of filth-ridden, grinding, over-the-top death-metal. Unrepentantly fast, furious and maniacal, Gore Metal gleamed with a delightful audio repugnance bedecked in blazing riff infiltrations, slasher-film-inspired lyrics and vile cover art. It was the record that made Carcass seem PG-rated by comparison and thus certified itself as a true underground classic.
Not content to let the album rot away, EXHUMED returned to the studio almost two decades later to re-record the landmark offering. The resulting Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998 - 2015, set for release this February via Relapse Records, maintains the maniacal ferocity of the original recordings while adding depth to the sonic devourment thanks in no small part to years of touring and a vastly improved-sounding recording quality.
Proclaims vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey: I'm super pumped that we got the chance to re-recordGore Metal. I don't think any of us were happy with how it turned out the first time around, so getting another shot at it meant a lot to me personally. I was also really excited to have our old friend Ross Sewage reprise his vocals on the new version, ensuring that it still sounds like that era ofEXHUMED, though things are a lot more audible this time around!1.

Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex PistolsRanked 41/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Recognizing that there's no such thing as bad publicity, manager-Svengali Malcolm McLaren molded the Sex Pistols into the most confrontational, nihilistic band rock & roll had ever seen. Propelled by Johnny Rotten's maniacal vocals, Steve Jones's buzz-saw guitar, and (most importantly) bass player Glen Matlock's hook-filled compositional skills, the Sex Pistols' early singles Anarchy in the U.K. and God Save the Queen defined the raging style of British punk. By the time they recorded their lone 1977 album, Matlock had been bounced, replaced by the volatile Sid Vicious. Never Mind The Bollocks remains a bile-filled emblem of the times.

Mythomania (On Sale)Cryptacize deals in the unforgettable melody, the forsaken chord and the extravagant sentiment. The surefooted and richly nuanced vocal arabesques of Nedelle Torrisi, like a modern day Freddie Mercury or Ronnie Spector, strangely complement the guitar of Chris Cohen, which sounds like a maniacally sped-up a la Les Paul or staccato and funny like Roy Smeck or Adolph Jacobs of the Coasters. Syncopated drum corps rudiments and pit-orchestra rave-ups from Michael Carreira propel the songs with a refreshingly buoyant touch that never lapses into rock music clich?s. There are also widescreen cinematic moments that take on a mournful and otherworldly pathos, like Experiment in Terror by Henry Mancini, but with vocals by Cambodian 60's pop legend Ros Serey Sothea or like Arabic diva Fairouz singing along to a psychedelic film score by Popol Vuh.1.

A Different ShipHere We Go Magic's sophomore album, Pigeons, had only been out a few weeks when the seeds for A Different Ship were planted in late June of 2010 at the Glastonbury Festival. The New York band had been on the road since Spring, wowing audiences with their uncanny live chemistry, turning album tracks into intricately groovy sonic explorations where the band seemed almost synchronously possessed. That had been their sweet spot since their earliest rehearsals together, when singer/songwriter Luke Temple, bassist Jennifer Turner, guitarist Michael Bloch, drummer Peter Hale and then-keyboardist Kristina Lieberson bonded over a shared belief in musical spontaneity and a kind of improvisation that feels too divinely ordered to be called "jamming."
At Glastonbury "the crowd wasn't giving us much to work with, except for these two guys standing in front," Temple continues. "One of them was dancing around like a maniac and I was like, 'I'm just gonna play for those two guys. Then I realized, 'That's fucking Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich!'" The band, Yorke and Godrich became fast friends and the producer eventually proposed working together. In particular, the producer said he thought he could help them better communicate their hypnotic and hypnagogic live vibe on tape.
And he did. A Different Ship is Here We Go Magic's most remarkable and captivating album yet, with an emotional and musical arc that is alternately calming and anxiety-inducing, and often both at once. "I Believe In Action" and "Make Up Your Mind" sound like they're being beamed in from outer space, while more earthbound tracks such as "Miracle of Mary," "Over The Ocean" and "Alone But Moving" amble in a somnolent haze, with Temple's cool timbre cutting through the fog.
After demoing and tracking in both LA with Godrich and later upstate New York, the band ultimately ended up recording the bulk of the album in Godrich's London studio. By that time the band was bursting with new ideas and the songs just started flowing."I think the best stuff on the record is the stuff that was thought about the least," says Temple. "Tracks like 'Over The Ocean,' 'I Believe In Action,' 'Made To Be Old,' written in the morning and recorded the same afternoon.
In London, with an array of huge sounds at their disposal, they found it easier to stick to their "keep it simple" rule. "When Jen produced 'Pigeons,' the sounds were a lot more condensed and we got really into finding the infinite space inside something that's super on top of itself," explains Bloch. "Then suddenly when you're working in a studio like Nigel's, it's all these enormous sounds. Just one of Jen's bass notes fills up the room.
Despite an incubation period of nearly a year, and a writing process that spanned two continents, the ten songs of A Different Ship carry a consistent thematic concern, what the band describes as an "unresolved tension between valuing being alone and valuing being connected." Says Temple: "The music is beautiful, but feels like it's brittle and about to crack. It's always suspended in between major and minor, happy and sad, trying to find that middle ambiguous place. A lot of the endings of these songs just kind of stop, like things are left suspended, floating in space. That's a real characteristic of us as a band moving forward, even when we're sort of unsure, and knowing we'll find happy accidents along the way."1. Hard To Be Close

Esoteric WarfareEsoteric Warfare is the fifth studio album by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem.
It has been seven long years since MAYHEM released their fourth and last full-length Ordo ad Chao. Founded as early as in 1984 in Oslo, Norway by the late and legendary frontman Øystein Aarseth aka Euronymous, bassist Jørn Necrobutcher Stubberud, and Kjetil Manheim Haraldsson on drums, the band took its name from the VENOM song Mayhem with Mercy. Continuing and renewing the Black Metal style heralded by the English trio, MAYHEM soon became the instigators of the so called second wave and were at the heart of every controversy surrounding that genre. The suicide of misanthropic frontman Per Yngve Dead Ohlin. The murder of Euronymous by guest bass player Count Grishnakh alias the notorious Varg Vikernes. Church burnings, drugs and prison sentences, MAYHEM were always at the centre of the storm. Yet not even death could stop the Norwegians, who released one musical milestone after the other. The incredible rawness of the Deathcrush EP (1987) was followed by the still iconic and genre defining De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas (1994), which featured devilish drummer Jan Axel Hellhammer Blomberg, who had joined in 1988. The vocalist on this album was the Hungarian Attila Csihar of TORMENTOR fame, who returned later in 2004 to take over from his meantime heir, the enigmatic original singer Sven-Erik Maniac Kristiansen. The latter was featured on the Wolf's Lair Abyss EP (1997), which was written mostly by highly talented guitarist Rune Blasphemer Eriksen, who scored a massive success with the highly controversial Grand Declaration Of War (2000). Those were followed by the more classic Chimera (2004) and a masterpiece of utter darkness called Ordo Ad Chao (2007) with Attila singing again, which inspired many bands to follow in its tracks. MAYHEM had always witnessed many line-up changes due to the circumstances described above. Therefore even the loss of Blasphemer, who decided to focus on his other band AVA INFERI in 2008, did not stop the band. Activities mainly revolved around live shows, until the right balance was found again with the recruitment of Morten Teloch Iversen. The guitarist had already made a name for himself with NIDINGR, which is highly regarded amongst black metal enthusiasts yet remained mostly an underground phenomenon. Now his first compositional work with MAYHEM is unleashed and demonstrates how perfectly Teloch has captured the essence and spirit of the Norwegian legend by linking the band back to its roots, while at the same time taking a step forward into the spearhead position of the genre instead of dwelling in nostalgia. The A-side, Psywar comes with a different mastering than the album version. The B-side, From Beyond the Event Horizon is a rare track taken from the much rumoured Budapest Recording Sessions, which the band decided to scratch.

GoetiaMYSTIFIER is an extreme Metal pioneer from Brazil, formed in July of 1989 by the bassist Beelzeebubth. When Beelzeebubth met Meugninousouan (vocalist), Behemoth (guitarist), and Lucifuge Rofocale (drummer), they decided to form one of the most extreme Metal bands from South American lands. After five months of development, they recorded their first Demo-tape entitled "TORMENTING THE HOLY TRINITY", with nine original songs and a cover song "Massacre" from Bathory's third album. The response was so positive that Maniac Records (a small vinyl record store from their hometown) invited the band to record two original songs for a single. Mystifier eagerly agreed. In July of 1990, the single, "THE EVIL ASCENSION RETURNS" was released. They were the first Metal band from their town (Salvador, Bahia) to release material onto a label. Following this release, some Brazilian labels were very interested in working with Mystifier. Then, in July of 1991, they recorded a promo-tape entitled "ALEISTER CROWLEY" with six fresh songs to present to other labels.
In February/1992, the hard work had paid-off and their debut album "WICCA" was released on the label Hellion Records. It is considered one of the most extreme albums to date for many true fans of Extreme Metal Music. After the releasing of their debut album, Beelzeebubth fired Meugninousouan because of his lack of interest. Asmodeus (ex-Hatred) was recruited to be the new vocalist and keyboardist. In that same time, Astaroth (ex-Calvary) joined them on the second lead guitar.
During those years, the band gained enormous worldwide underground notoriety. It drew the attention of the French label Osmose Productions which signed the band for two albums. The first was released in the November of 1993, with worldwide distribution through SPV, entitled "GÖETIA" [several months later, their debut album was also released in Europe on Osmose Productions.] The response was a European tour request from the tour promoter Insolit - and many reviews, articles, interviews, and so forth - in international magazines and radio stations. After that release, Mystifier played in many Brazilian areas to promote the new release.
Behemoth and Astaroth had to quit the band because of personal reasons and weren't interested in maintaining a band. Paulo Lisboa (who had played in Death Metal bands for years) replaced them on the lead-guitar.
Beelzeebubth was very disappointed with the Underground scene, corroded with hypocritical 'satanic christians' who were talking a lot of shit about Satanism, fascism, racism and nazi thoughts. For that reason, he canceled the release of Mystifier's third album. He composed new and powerful music. Later, in August of 1996, their masterpiece third album entitled, "THE WORLD IS SO GOOD THAT WHO MADE IT DOESN'T LIVE HERE" was released with six new tracks. It's their greatest produced and recorded material; it is totally original and different from their previous releases.
With a new lineup, Mystifier released an EP with seven fresh songs and a re-done version of "Beelzeebubth" (from the second album), on a Brazilian label, to celebrate their 10 years. The single was entitled "DEMYSTIFYING THE MYSTIFIED ONES (FOR A DECADE IN THE EARTHLY PARADISE)."
The band released their fourth full-length album entitled "Profanus" in September/2001 with 13 fresh compositions on a Brazilian label called Encore Records.
Now, Mystifier has signed with Greyhaze Records in a deal that initially involves the reissues of Wicca and Goetia.1. Aleister Crowley and Ordo Templi Orientis

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt CheapThere's a real sense of menace to Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, the title song of AC/DC's third album. More than most of their songs to date, it captured the seething malevolence of Bon Scott, the sense that he reveled in doing bad things, encouraged by the maniacal riffs of Angus and Malcolm Young who provided him with their most brutish rock & roll yet. But for as glorious as the title track was, the entire album served as a call to arms from a group that wanted nothing more than to celebrate the dirtiest, nastiest instincts humans could have, right down to the insurgent anti-authority vibe that runs throughout the record. Take Big Balls -- sure, it's a dirty joke, but it's a dirty joke with class overthrow in mind. There's a sense on Dirty Deeds that AC/DC is storming the gates -- they're problem children sick of waiting around to be a millionaire, so they're gonna make their own money, even if they take down others as they go. That's what gives Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap its supercharged, nervy pulse; there's a real sense of danger to this record, something that can't be hidden beneath the jokes. Maybe that's why the album wasn't released in the U.S. until 1981, after Bon's death, after AC/DC had become millionaires -- if it arrived any earlier, it would have been too insurrectionist for the common good.

In The Flat FieldFew debut albums have ever arrived as nearly perfectly formed as In the Flat Field. It practically invented what remains for many as the blueprint of goth music. In the Flat Field contains a wide variety of inspirations and ideas. The astonishingly precise rhythm section of David J and Kevin Haskins pulls off a variety of jaw-dropping performances, including the high-paced tension of the title track and the brooding crawl of "Spy in the Cab." Daniel Ash, much like his longtime hero Mick Ronson, turns out to be a master of turning relatively simple guitar parts into apocalyptic explosions, from the background fills on "St. Vitus Dance" to the brutal descending chords of "Stigmata Martyr." Murphy, meanwhile, channels as much Iggy Pop as he does Bowie, proving to be no simple copyist of either, able to both maniacally sing-shout and take a somewhat lighter touch throughout. The album concludes with the seven-minute "Nerves," an aptly titled piece that alternates between understated energy and unleashed power spiraling toward a dramatic ending. In the Flat Field started off Bauhaus' album career with a near-perfect bang.1. Double Dare

Kustom City U.S.A.Long Lost Hot Rod Classic Featuring Bruce Johnston!
Sourced from the Original Stereo Masters
By 1964, Bruce Johnston was already a proven veteran on the West Coast music scene. Following up the success of the Rip Chords collaboration with Terry Melcher and the hit single "Hey Little Cobra," Johnston revved up the Kustom Kings. With a mission statement " to present the most authentic hot rod album on the market," the Kustom City U.S.A. album brought together an all-star team. Bruce Johnston wrote and co-wrote much of the LP's material, as did producer/arranger/saxophonist Steve Douglas. Rounding out the band were guitarists Tommy Tedesco and Glen Campbell, Ray Pohlman on bass, Jay Migliori on second sax and Hal Blaine on drums-WOW! Tedesco and Campbell lock in gripping guitar duels while Douglas and Migliori wail over the timing belt beat of Blaine and Pohlman. Johnston contributes superb vocal and piano work and together, the Kustom Kings jam the accelerator down to the floorboard! Through the years, word of Kustom City U.S.A. and its brilliance spread through the collector scene, with copies of the LP changing hands for considerable sums. And now, just when you thought the tank was on E, Sundazed roars in with a maniacally marvelous reissue! Sourced from the original stereo masters, Kustom City U.S.A. has been tuned up and restored to showroom condition.1. In My 40 Ford

Kill (Picture Disc)
25th Anniversary Limited Pressing
Original Uncensored Art On A Vibrant Picture Disc
Simply titled but meticulously assembled, Kill was recorded with producer Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel) at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. The tenth record of their storied career, each track basks in its own claustrophobic abrasiveness and maniacal subject matter. From the onset of the fiery The Time To Kill Is Now, guitarists Barrett and Pat O'Brien, vocalist George Corpsegrinder Fisher, bassist Alex Webster and drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz pummel with a renewed sense of urgency. Fast, furious and scrupulously timed, the tune is a palpable reminder that Cannibal remains a force to be reckoned. Make Them Suffer sears with an old school Possessed vibe (a band to whom Cannibal has paid homage to on several occasions), while Necrosadistic Warning, replete with a barrage of blistering solo work by O'Brien whose guitar deftness is often underestimated, comes riddled with visions of zombies sexually gratifying themselves with the body parts of! the beings they've slain. Other tracks like the telling Five Nails Through The Neck, Death Walking Terror, Brain Removal Device and instrumental closer Infinite Misery see the five-piece at their most cogent, both lyrically and musically.

In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up (Live)American industrial metal band Ministry was founded by lead singer Al Jourgensen in 1981. Originally a new wave synthpop outfit, Ministry changed its style to become one of the pioneers of industrial metal in the mid-80s.
In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up is a live album by the band. The album was originally released in 1990 and contains the live show performed in Merillville on February 22, 1990.
The album is six songs long, but delivers big time for each of them. The energy, the maniacal chaos and an order under the surface of this chaos.
Onstage, the founding stars of Chicago's industrial-noise movement come on like a battalion of bare-knuckle soldiers. In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up, a six-track live set features mad-dog bandleader Al Jourgensen barking over a barrage of rock noise synchronized to hammering rhythms. Ferocious fun if you can stand it. - Entertainment Weekly
In 2005 In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up was ranked number 328 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.1. The Missing

Geocidaltetema is a new duo project from Mike Patton (FNM, Bungle, Fantomas, principle Zorn interpreter) and Australian composer/pianist Anthony Pateras (Thymolphthalein, Pivixki, Pateras/Baxter/Brown, Beta Erko). geocidal is audio caffiene injected direct into your eyeballs. Recorded across half the
continents on the planet, this record investigates the murder of place. Do borders even matter any more? Should we even leave the house? Is there any specificity left in this generalised cesspool of culture? Or has the tidal wave of digitally-fuelled apathy swamped any sense of tangible individuality? tetema
demand another universe to this one, and have built one especially for you.
Boasting a 12-piece all-star cast of incredible musicians and featuring special guest drummer Will Guthrie (absolutely slaying), tetema hand picked a devastating team of instrumental virtuosi to assist their quest to make indispensable music in the age of permanent refuse. As a result, geocidal brings the
most glorious noise, interrogating the deepest cosmogonies and malformations of man. It's true! Antique synths? Check. Outlandish orchestration? Definitely. Face-frying vocals wrapped in velvet? You know it.
If we could name some references for you to file this under, we would, but some application is eventually going to tell you what it sounds like anyways, so we won't. To us, it sounds like two maniacs in their respective studios having the time of their lives, rebirthing some of the most insane songcraft this side
of the godforsaken Miley-Cyrus worshipping millennium. So stop like-ing cat jpegs, stop drooling into your phone and listen to this freaking record - it will literally re-wire your existing perception of sonic possibility, although that's probably underselling it.

Slow DazzleIn 1975, mad scientist and Velvet Underground alum John Cale returned to the lab to record another experiment. Slow Dazzle, his fifth solo album and second collaboration with Roxy Music's Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera, dissects rock and avant-garde, hacks the limbs off of pop and jazz, and fuses the styles together into a limber, impassioned creation.
Back on domestic vinyl for the first time in decades, this RTI-pressed edition of Slow Dazzle is cut at Mobile Fidelity by in-house engineer Krieg Wunderlich and features stunning sonics. Quiet surfaces, faithful artwork, and the opportunity to hear Cale's incisive fare unfold amidst wide soundstages and black backgrounds-not to mention the emotionally unsettling content within-make this Wax Cathedral LP a must for music aficionados.
Sometimes jaunty and beer-soaked, sometimes maniacally spitting into the microphone about killing his wife's lover, sometimes despairing, sometimes sweet, Cale holds forth with schizophrenic authority. Manzanera's sordid guitar dirges ambidextrously switch to cheerful riffs as Eno's synthesizer rubber-bands its way through sunshine and smoke-machine fog. Chris Thomas, who recorded with the Beatles and engineered albums for Pink Floyd and the Sex Pistols, throws haunted violin and dissonant electric piano into the formula.
Whether he's heaping neon sleaze atop earnest surf harmonies in an ode to the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson (Mr. Wilson), lulling you into a blurred, easy-listening trance (Ski Patrol, I'm Not the Loving Kind), or growling a pre-goth era cover of Elvis' Heartbreak Hotel" with mascara-running intensity, Cale delivers an elastic range of artistry. Ditties like "Dirty Ass Rock 'N' Roll" and "Guts" place psychopath tendencies into the body of a catchy pop song, turn up the electricity, twitch, and grab.
By all means, Cale's experiment was a success. Slow Dazzle is alive.1. Mr. Wilson
