Great Cd by one of the best groups out there.

If you're like me and was "turned on" to The BJM by Dig!, you will have to have this.

Every track has the merit enough to hold its own as a single.

...and let's be thankful that the Brian Jonestown Massacre is around to provide the soundtrack. As of their latest full-length (Strung Out In Heaven), BJM is yet to repeat themselves stylistically, and Give It Back! stands out as the band's paen to all things good about mid-late 60s-inspired music. From the toe-tapping pop splendor of "This Is Why You Love Me" to the foot-stomping psychedelia of "Satellite" to the smarmy boogie of "Not If You Were The Last Dandy on Earth," Give It Back! doesn't disappoint.
Anyone looking for a polished, radio-friendly, "modern rock" product should look elsewhere, while anybody sick and tired of the glossy veneer of today's records should look no further. While not exactly "retro," the album is decidedly lo-fi. A must-have for any fan of the BJM, and a very high recommendation for anyone into a mixture of "drone," psychedelia and brit-pop, past and/or present.

This one has 'Whoever You Are', 'The Devil May Care (Mom and Dad Don't)', '#1 Hit Jam' and 'Last Dandy On Earth', which are all featured prominently in the movie Dig!

I especially love 'Whoever You Are' for it's Beatle-tinged ("let me take you down"), psychedelic gvoove. It never ceases to amaze me.

If you're like me and was "turned on" to The BJM by Dig!, you will have to have this. Just buy them all like I did. I appreciate the motive(s) to put them up on the web for free but I just had to have the actual CD's. Take that RIAA.

For drug-drenched, psychedelic modern alternative rock, you just can't beat the BJM. Well, almost. Their pals, the Dandy Warhols come pretty close. I think this is one of the BJM's strongest efforts. "Sue" is my favorite track from this album. It's Anton's homage to the Velvet Underground's "Heroin". Yes, it's a long one but not a minute is wasted. Some of the BJM's albums tend to be hit and miss affairs so it's a good idea to listen to the samples provided by Amazon.com. but this one is quite consistent.

This CD opens up with the beginning of the Dandy Warhols' Come Down... and then veers off into a much more interesting and unexpected place. Tablas, a droning sitar, and industrial-sounding guitars and organs add a sinister touch. "This is Why You Love Me" is a pretty, Byrds-like tune. There is a definite eastern vibe to the CD, but not in a pretentious Kula Shaker-way. Some standouts: "Sue", "Servo", "Whoever You Are". And don't forget "Not if you were the Last Dandy on Earth" -a sarcastic ode to the band of Warhols.

It took me a few weeks of listening to it to really get into this album, but I now love it. It really puts together alot of the elements of their past albums perfectly. My favorite song off of it at the time is "The Devil May Care (Mom & Dad Don't)". Every other song is good too, besides the last track which i rarely listen to. Great Cd by one of the best groups out there.

What a fantastic album. Every track has the merit enough to hold its own as a single. In a time where modern albums can, at the most, have one to two descent songs; The Brian Jonestown Massacre rips another one out that simply spits in the face of the corporit music business. Buy this album, and the rest of the BJM collection. My recommendations: Methodrone, Their Satanic Majesty's Second Request, and if on a budget, Tepid Peppermint Wonderland.
