Editorial Reviews

Love is the first release from Foetus in over three years and his strongest record in a career of groundbreaking, genre-busting, dirty and blissful, dark, flourishing rock and electronics intensity. Do not file under industrial. File under Mystery. This release goes way beyond all past markers Foetus has set for the awaiting pack. Love may have you scratching your head at, and perhaps praying for, the person for whom this is a perception of love. Love is a sweeping dramatic epic drenched in harpsichord and orchestras and sound, with jarring left turns and bombast, intensity and seduction. Love is a startling immersive journey through the sonic excitement of J. G. Thirlwell. The full length CD features a duet with Jennifer Charles of Elysian Fields.

Jim Thirwell comes back after four years to drop a bombshell on the world. If only more people knew it. It's truly a shame that such lush, inventive, and powerful music is overlooked in the popular culture. Every person I play this for, no matter what their musical preference, recognizes the tremendous skill present on this album. In a way this is the most approachable Foetus album - its melodies and arrangments are inviting, yet the compositions themselves are no less defiantly idiosyncratic than on any previous release.

Right off the bat it's obvious that Thirwell's got new tools at his disposal - a harpsichord for one, along with many other disparate instruments that he combines effortlessly song after song. His production skills seem more honed as well - no longer does each track bluster with noise; whereas on Flow "Cirrhosis of the Heart" was a juxtaposed respite from the intensely brutal tracks that surrounded it, the songs here are more subtly developed, which is probably one of the big reasons why this album feels more approachable. Contrast "Quick Fix" with "(Not Adam)," for example; the first jumps out of the gate and blasts the listener's ears off, and, while some of us enjoy that, "(Not Adam)" lulls the listener in with its portentious opening and excites the listener with its sudden dynamic shifts and shifting layers. When Thirwell begins to sing about killing a woman and disposing of her body, it is over an evolved dance pulse that gets the foot tapping (or the booty shaking), while the dramatically reverbed piano following this section tugs all the heart strings.

Every consecutive Foetus release only blows me away more... Since Amazon didn't list the tracklist, here it is:

1. (not adam) - sinister, fast-paced, and dramatic. 10/10

2. Mon Agonie Douce - JGT's first french song. interesting and slow (the background whispers are nice 'n creepy) but weaker compared to other tracks on the album. 6/10

3. Aladdin Reverse - wow. it takes a couple listens to get used to, but it floats around quietly for a while only to slam you with a nice sucker-punch of a heavy chorus. 9/10

4. Miracle - you're probably familiar with the Jay Wasco remix of this song from the (Not Adam) EP. I personally love the remix... the album version has a nice orchestral beat-down. A little clunky in the lyrics department with the chorus, but I'll forgive him this time. 9/10

5. Don't Want Me Anymore - I personally love this slower track. 9/10

6. Blessed Evening - an instant classic! dark and evil... 10/10

7. Pareidolia - another slow and floaty track. easily overlooked. 5/10

8. Thrush - the JGT duet with Jennifer Charles (Elysian Fields, Lovage), which is both beautiful and unsettling! 8/10

9. Time Marches On - another track remixed from the (Not Adam) EP... but the remix sounds nothing like this song (in a good way). I really love the fast pace, especially with the strings thrown in to make it sound especially epic 10/10

10. How to Vibrate - weird and tortured, reminding me somewhat of Kreibabe from FLOW. quiet at times, noisy at times. ya just can't peg this song down! 10/10

Another great album by ol' Jim. Less aggressive, more darker and complex. Somewhat like one of his other projects, Steroid Maximus but with lyrics. If you liked his First, Last and Always Sisters cover, you'll LOVE this! Not as noisy as his earlier stuff, less clangs and bangs. Calling it industrial is seriously limiting its diverse flavour. It's a mix of symphonic samples, pop, punk, a touch of sleazy 60's jazz, and slight industrial undertones with great drumming. Musically a little more serious then most of the previous Foetus albums. I especially love the harpsichord samples.

The only real flaws that I can hear is his singing and lyrics. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of his previous work and I love his voice but I feel he didn't spend enough time on his voice in the studio. Something is missing, maybe overplayed backing vocals. Some of the singing is a bit out of tune at places, maybe done for affect, I'm not sure. Most of his other albums are not lacking in this area.

His lyrics aren't as great as some of his other works either. The lyrics are not as good as Nail or Hole. But better then some of the other albums. But still better then most other bands.

He seems to have spent most of his efforts on the music, which is of his best!

Over all I love the album, it's original, not just a repeat of any of his other albums. It's got a couple of great tunes. Danceable and cheeky. This is NOT a hardcore album. Don't worry, it ain't soppy either. He hasn't gone soft.

If you are looking for hard electro riffs or hardcore industrial metal, look someplace else. If you want something to thrash or mosh to, get some White Zombie or Fear Factory. If your looking for a dance album, something to take E to, go get some EBM.
