Biography

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

Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of this 2007 album, considered on of the fiercest, catchiest and overall best sounding Blues Rock releases of our generation. Upgrading the artwork and packaging and adding visual digital enhancement was just the beginning: Clutch fans now have double the value of musical content, as the band has added nine Memphis-blues influenced performances from the planet's far reaches, as only Clutch can pull off!

Customer Reviews

A definite must have for Clutch fans.
Peter's Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire
This album in particular sees the band adopt a stronger blues influence as well, for an even more diverse mixture of styles.

When I was 14 I loved the Clutch CD that my friends dad gave us to listen to.

It's a long-standing tradition for rockers to turn to the blues as they get older and wiser. The maturing Clutch, masters of twisted and subversive heavy rock, have embraced the blues as the next step in their creative development. This release consolidates the new sounds developed on the last Clutch album, and these rocker dudes, who have done mind-boggling things with every style from hardcore to metal to funk, have fully incorporated rowdy blues rock into their singular musical vision. Songs like "The Devil & Me," "Electric Worry," and "Black Umbrella" (which even includes a harmonica solo) are clearly descended from traditional blues, with Clutch sounding like an especially anarchic Savoy Brown. And since Clutch will always rumble headlong into new musical territories, this album features several progressions, like the spooky "White's Ferry" and the slowly rumbling "Opossum Minister." But rest assured that we're still in gearheadland, thanks to the classic pummeling Clutch crunch of "Power Player" and "Mr. Shiny Cadillackness," which are crucial links to the band's heavy past.

While the fellas may be mellowing out a little bit, their playing is still top-notch, as heard in Jean-Paul Gaster's piledriving (and surprisingly nimble) drumming and Dan Maines' dexterous rumbling basslines, while Tim Sult has seamlessly converted his traditional vertiginous stoner-metal riffage into this album's bluesy chord progressions. Here we are also witnessing the great benefit of the addition of keyboardist Mick Schauer (now on his second full album with the band), who successfully adds slightly arcane and off-kilter Memphis licks to the existing Clutch attack.

This is an interesting album, even for Clutch. While it lacks the lyrical and thematic edge of Robot Hive Exodus, it makes up for in pure southern rock foot stomping goodness. This album makes it harder to stay in your seat than any of their previous offerings. The earlier tracks such as "Can't Stop Progress" and "Power Player" hearken back to Clutch's heavier roots, while "The Devil & Me" and "Electric Worry" take them even farther into their new southern sound. "Electric Worry" is an instant classic and easily one of the band's best songs to date. The latter tracks dive back into Fallon's trademark lyrical style ("When Vegans Attack" and "Black Umbrella" are particularly entertaining) and sound more like a solid Clutch live set than any of their previous studio efforts. Their blues influence is more noticeable on this album and smoothly integrated into their sound, especially with Mick's organ work and Fallon's harmonica. Clutch's gearhead fans from their early days who have been displeased with the southern direction of their sound will probably not like this album - it's clear the 'rock fury' days are past. Fans of Clutch's newer direction will love it, as will anyone who enjoys their live shows. This is a great album.

If you want to hear the definition of tight, this is the album. Road hardened as all Hell, Clutch has managed to produce the most amazing neo-blues album ever. This is the most dirty album I have heard in a while, and it's refreshing. Most of the tracks on here sound as if they should have been written by blues greats like "Howlin'" Wolf, Tennessee Williams, and Muddy Waters. Instead, Neil Fallon shows his lyrical love of the blues by paying homage through his own words. On "You Can't Stop Progress" he lets us know that "I understand there are no victimless crimes, that being said, I feel rather victimized". On "Electric Worry" the catchy hook "Bang Bang Bang Bang...Vamanoose Vamanoose" reminded me of when they played this live, six months before the release of this album. Now I look back and feel as if I was a small part of rock history as they honed this tune live. There are so many other examples that I could site, but I don't want to leave the rest of the band out.

Though I was initally disappointed that there was no jam session for the last track, I now understand that this album was meant to highlight the entire band. Tim Sult,on lead guitar, manages to impress by the notes he doesn't play. This is the sign of a truly mature musician. When he does pull out a solo, they're at times minimalistic, which speaks to his character. I have to say, that despite how much I love the sound of his guitar on such greats as "Tim Sult vs. The Greys", "(Notes From the Trial of) La Curandera" and "Swampt Boot Upside Down". That does not mean that Sult lacks in any area. The tightness of the turnaround blues of "Child of the City" is reminiscent of "Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin.

My taste for Clutch's music faded in and out for a while, so I never took the time to check out From Beale Street To Oblivion beyond the single "Electric Worry." Imagine certain frustration when the album, Blast Tyrant and Robot Hive/Exodus all when out of print when their former label DRT Entertainment went under along with other band's albums. It's a good thing that Clutch thought about those albums when they started their label Weathermaker Music. Here we have From Beale Street To Oblivion in a deluxe edition, remastered, and with a bonus cd with live tracks from their BBC and Australia recordings. The packaging is also very nice. A lot of their recent albums including live albums and dvd's have all been in digipaks. This one is no different, and I think it's the coolest one so far: a nice digipak with a black slipcase which is open in the front so you can see the original album artwork in it's glory. This is a fine album. So if you're like me, and you never got the chance to listen to it, it's the perfect time because it's back in print, and it's one you have to hear.

Also check out the new deluxe editions of Blast Tyrant and Robot Hive/Exodus, out later this year.

Jewel case or Digipak?
This cd along with Robot Hive/exodus and Blast Tyrant are going to be re-released on the bands own label Weathermaker Music. I'm sure they will be digipaks of some sort. No word yet on the release date.

2 tracks with the same name?
It's a remake of the original song. Listen to them back-to-back - they made a few minor changes, but the similarity should be pretty apparent.
