Not often, but once in a great while, a truly fabulous work of art is created. It is not a feat that is only achieved by artists who are known to be great; as evidenced by The The's "Mind Bomb", it is sometimes done by artists who are little known at all.

Ranking very near, if not at the top, of the greatest albums of the Modern Rock era, 1989's "Mind Bomb" is not merely a collection of eight songs, but a seamless, flowing journey through the darkness and light of the human condition. Matt Johnson, an emotive vocalist and lyricist at his worst, shows here that he can reach deep into his own soul to retrieve and give voice to sentiments and suspicions that are rarely touched upon in polite company, but are commonly held by many. The objective of the album, achieved completely, is the taboo act of tearing away the shrouds that guard religeon, race, sex, society, and love. The whole world is laid bare at your feet in "Mind Bomb", a testimony to the desperation and cynicism that people enforce upon themselves in order to rise above nature. It is at first not an easy listen, but one which will eventually become a part of the listener's being; that is, if he or she is sympathetic to the cause of finding some shred of meaning in life.

While the star of this show might not be a household name among those who were fortunate enough to grow up in the amazing alternative rock culture of the late eighties and early nineties, one of the supporting actors certainly is. Johnny Marr, former guitarist of The Smiths, is far more in the background here than in the places we know him best, even appropriately adding background vocals to his repertoire of enormous musical talent.

Passionate, insanely evocative and provocative, Matt Johnson's The The create their masterpiece, 'Mind Bomb', with the help of ex-The Smith's genius guitarist/songwriter, Johnny Marr. It manages to achieve the accomplishment of not only being The The's best album (which is saying a lot), but one of the best complete works of music of both the 80's and 90's. As others have suggested, it is incumbent upon you to put on a fine pair of headphones (I recommend the studio-standard Sony MDR 7506's, which run around $99, but really, you have not heard music until you've listened through these specific headphones), turn the lights off, get comfortable, smoke one if you got one, (but not too much!!), and listen to this CD, or at the very least the first song, Good Morning Beautiful, and both Kingdom of Rain and Beyond Love. By the time you hear the swirling, gravel-shifting harmonica groans of the first song, Good Morning Beautiful, and the lightning shell crack of David Palmer's snare drum (have you heard a snare drum sound this good in your life?), you should be sufficiently seduced by this song's lyrical brilliance, Johnson's world-weary, sneering whispers, it's originality and it's aural genius. Gonzography's Amazon review of 2004 hits the nail on the head in describing the timelessness of the lyrics, particularly those of 'Armegeddon Days' (the 'Islam is rising' line is indeed chilling and prophetic). The joyous upbeat shuffle of the 'Armegeddon', and tongue-in-cheek spoken intro rave-up, as well as the faux-Arabic melody motif, belie the truth and seriousness of what the Western world and the Muslim world faces nowadays. In lyrics written in 1988.Read more ›
