Forget whatever you thought about Clutch. Earth Rocker crumples up the bad categories that have miscast them for years — stoner rock, post-hardcore, metal, grunge — and leaves no question about what they are: a damn good rock and roll band.
Earth Rocker is a solid, straight-up rock and roll album, exactly what the band had in mind for their tenth studio album, now that their ... Read more in Amazon's Clutch Store

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best of the 90s! March 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Clutch... if ever there was a band that had more going on thanmeets the eye, this is it. Their self-titled second album is anamazing piece of music. The songs flow into one another so artfully that at times you'll find yourself glancing at the CD box to see if this is some kind of wild concept album.
I'm still not sure that it isn't, but there are too many concepts at work here to be positive. Part X-Files, part pirate chanty, part Bible study, part Civil War history, part trucker's anthem and part English Lit class, "Clutch" rocks hard and grooves deep. "Big News" parts 1 and 2 are raucous, rollicking latter-day pirate tunes that start the record on a grooving, low-speed note. "Texan Book of the Dead" and "Escape From the Prison Planet" are two of my favorites, the former turning the concept of the codified death ritual on it's ear; the latter describing scenes that must have inspired Chris Carter to base some X-Files episodes.
"Spacegrass" is one of the best songs for driving at night... you can imagine yourself cruising at Escape Velocity out of the solar system. My absolute favorites are "I Have The Body Of John Wilkes Booth", "Animal Farm", "Droid" and "7 Jam".
This album took a few years to grow on me, but it is now one of my favorites. It's different, original, enjoyable, thought-provoking and a-kicking. It proves that rock, far from being dead, has simply become the tool for more sophisticated musicians.
Worth it. END

5.0 out of 5 stars Clutch, at it again November 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
There's no way to describe how good Clutch is. Personally, I like this CD better than all the others. In fact, this is the best CD I've heard. It is simply awesome. The more you listen to it the more you like it. The more you hear it the more you love it until you eventually can't listen to anything else. I have Pitchfork, Impetus, Transnational Speedway League, Elephant Riders, and Jam Room as well, but I keep finding myself listening to Clutch over and over again. It's like a concept album in that when you just play it from start to finish the songs flow into each other and feed off of the previous vibe. From Big News 1 to Tim Sult Vs. the Greys, this CD has it all. EVERY SONG gets 5 stars with no weak points and no complaints from me. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD! Once you listen to it a few times you'll be extremely glad you did, I gaurantee it. Oh yea..don't forget to vist and for the latest Clutch news and merchandise info!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clutch=good August 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
For those who think music can't be simultaneously heavy, catchy, and intelligent, the work of Clutch should serve as a thudding refutation. When it comes to Clutch, you can basically just take everything you know about heavy music and throw it out the window, because they bend genres more easily than Superman could bend a fork. Is it metal? Hard rock? Jam Rock? Stoner Rock? More like "E," all of the above.
What makes this self-titled second album lovable and durable above all is its extreme quirkiness. Every song stands out on its own, making for a collection of memorable tunes. "Big News I" boasts a deep bass groove and some hilariously inane lyrics, while its sequel "Big News II" and "Animal Farm" turn on the heaviness. "I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth" and "Tight Like That" are solid slow-burning Jams, and "Spacegrass" is a soaring, multi-faceted epic. I could talk about every song, but suffice to that the variety on display here is truly impressive.
On top of the songwriting, there's a lot more to like about this band. Neil Fallon has quickly earned a place among my favorite vocalists. Sometimes he sings, sometimes he wails, sometimes he growls, but he always sounds like he's been gargling with gravel. Tim Sult is a terffic and versatile guitarist, who cranks out lots of thick, heavy riffs and insinuating lead lines. Meanwhile, the rhythm section of Dan Maines and Jean-Paul Gaster keeps up an infectious power groove in the background.
I don't think this is Clutch's best album, as I think they've been improving with the subsequent releases "The Elephant Riders" and "Pure Rock Fury." Still, the self-titled album and its predecessor "Transnational Speedway League" are still a good place to start. I like all kinds of heavy music, from classic metal right up to death metal (and beyond), but Clutch will always occupy a prominent place in my CD collection. If you like your metal mixed with some intelligence, you can't go wrong with Clutch.

These guys are crazy. Neil Fallon's voice has more attitude than Mike Tyson on the wrong medication, and the rest of the package will have you cracking open a cold beer and banging your head until it gathers enough speed to launch off your body, through your roof and into outer space with beer drool hanging off your lower lip ... and what a beautiful smile Clutch has put on your face. Anyone into hard, heavy, sleazy, sludgey, insane hard rock/metal bands, needs Clutch in their collection the way Whitney Houston needs weed.

All Hail Clutch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Marlon Brando, but Bigger June 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you are only going to buy one album from Clutch, or modern rock for that matter, you have to pick this one up. Clutch stuff ingenious lyrics, grooving basslines, perfectly excecuted drums, and guitar riffs that sound like they came straight from the Seventies into one big bag and hardly charge you anything for it.(I got my copy of this record, and all their others with the exception of robot hive and blast tyrant for $9.00 Canadian)

You dont see many bands like Clutch around anymore. What do i mean? Well Clutch have been making consistantly great records for years, and refuse to follow any sort of trend. In case you didn't notice, were not in the Seventies, so the whole trippy guitar playing style has been shoved out the window and has been replaced with the SAME chord played over and over again. And guess what? The lyrics don't follow the usual Rock pattern of Sex, Drugs & Rock and Roll cliched pattern. Neil Fallon is one of my favorite songwritters because he has such a unique way of crafting lyrics that somehow match perfectly with the music.

Check out Clutch if your into rock in general, or you just like original music.
