Editorial Reviews

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's formed in Indianapolis, IN in 2006. The band quickly gained a strong following, and after heavy US touring, Artemis Records signed the band to release "The Dust of Retreat." Margot released their sophomore record on Epic Records, with whom they signed in 2007. Animal! was released in 2008 amidst band/label controversy; two albums were actually released, Animal! was the band's track listing, and Not Animal was the label's. With 2010's Buzzard, Margot brings a more aggressive and streamlined sound.

I saw Margot in SF soon as the release of Dust of Retreat and it was an amazing concert. They had Japanese taiko drums. The vibe of the concert with all the different instruments was great. This CD just is lacking that extra excitement and creativity that the extra instruments brought to the last albums however it is worth listening to. I'll be seeing the new Margot in DC this weekend and hope the concert is just as exciting as the last one.

I wasn't holding out much hope for this one. As far as I was concerned, when half the band left, a big part of what made Margot great was gone, particularly Emily Watkins and her contribution on the Rhodes and background vocals. However I have to say that I liked this album instantly, particularly the first few tracks. Yes it's different...a lot of the atmospherics and strings are gone, it's a lot grittier, and again, it doesn't have the touch that Emily gave the tracks from Dust and Animal. But, it works -- in a lot of ways, it still has that Margot "feel," and it just goes to show how much of that comes from Edwards.

I think I'll always like the old Margot best, but this album certainly does not disappoint, and will remain in rotation in my collection.

I've been a fan with Margot since way before they ever commercially released Dust. In fact, my friend sent me the MP3's from the first version of Dust sometime in 2004ish? At any rate, I instantly fell in love with the album and started telling all my friends at Ball State U about it. Needless to say, they were also loving the album.

To be honest, I think Dust and the songs from Not Animal are still the bands best work. Not Animal featured the best of the new songs with the best of the unreleased old stuff. Some of the newer songs just didn't have quite the same vibe even though they were good for sure.

Now, enter Buzzard. I actually did not like this record at first. It's vast departure from the style that made Margot...well Margot didn't sit well with me. I'm also an audio engineer so production is important to me and the production on Buzzard isn't great. What does help this album is the songs themselves. The album has absolutely fantastic songs that might be slightly below the surface at first, but if you give the album a few spins you'll pick up on that fast.

I'd go into individual songs, but for the most part they're all good. Where as the Dust of Retreat became one of my favorite albums because of the instrumentation, songs and production....Buzzard will be in my top album list purely based on the merits of the songs themselves. That's really hard to do these days. Bravo.

This is definitely worth the money. Remember to give it a few weeks to sink in.

in my opinion this band keeps getting better and better. this is slightly different than their other albums. gone is the ornate orchestral instrumentation. what we have here is a nice gritty slice of rock and roll. brian deck of red red meat fame is now a member of the band. they also worked with tim rutili of califone. if you are familiar with either one of those bands you'll get a good idea for the guitar tone on this album. the lyrics are very much the margot you know and love. can't wait to see this stuff live. cheers to continual progression!
