Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

His work in Sebadoh might have endeared him to a generation of mopey hipsters, but it took the Folk Implosion's left-field Top 40 hit "Natural One" to raise Lou Barlow's profile in Middle America. If you're looking for nothing more challenging than the pop propensity of that song (which does not appear here), this much headier disc may make for uneasy listening--but only at first. Barlow and partner John Davis have an uncanny knack for crafting ambient tunes--like the reverb-laden "Blossom"--that insinuate themselves into your skull after a few listens. The duo takes plenty of chances, building rickety sound-collages ("Sputnik's Down") and donning Mod duds (for the punchy title track), and by cramming 14 songs into just over 22 minutes, they insure that the disc contains a little something for everyone. --David Sprague

Many years ago I got this album because I knew I had liked the Folk Implosion songs I had heard on the KIDS Soundtrack. This is nothing like those, but I liked it nearly as much. It's a totally different sound than what they would eventually make. This is the type of music you wish that you and your friends could sit around making at your apartment for fun. It's very lo-fi and that just makes it feel more like you were there recording it with them, laughing at all the silly ideas and lyrics they came up with. The only downfall is that it's a bit too short. I would think that anybody who has sat around and jammed with friends would enjoy this album.

If you thought sebadoh III was raw, that was nothing! this album is so raw it was recorded in a bedroom. at times its hollow. i feel like i am evansdropping on rehersal sessions at their house. which you are. anyways, lou barlow & Co rock it. Some interesting melodys and songs. this is good.

This one just rocks its way into your heart the whole short time it's playing. Each song is a condensed pop gem, quickly and roughly hewn out of Lou and John's (then) exuberant love of noise and syncopation.

These songs were not deliberated and edited to death -- au contraire, they are still steaming they are so freshly and jaggedly sliced from the squirming rock-fabric.

Fun to throw on at parties.

Good things come in small packages. At only 22 minutes long, "Take a look inside..." sounds as complete as any 75 minute long album. Often regarded as lou barlow's "other" band, the folk implosion's first album is a short, firey, lo fi dream. Ditching the negativity from his previous Sebadoh albums, Lou Barlow and John Davis (ex-Palace Music) have crafted a gem. The opening "Blossom" well, blossoms and the closing "Start again" stumbles and jolts around like a runaway rollercoaster. The focus appears to be more towards a fun recording. Lou and John sing in unison without a care in the world (see the sleazy "Slap Me" or the urgent "Sputnik's Down") while the guitars intertwine and caress the beautifully sloppy drums and smooth basslines. Only when they get a little self indulgent does the album veer towards the niggling side. "Winter's Day" is the guilty party here. However, with some startlingly fresh tracks like "Butterfly-Spiderweb" and the title track along with a sneaky cover ("Waltzin with yr ego"), "Take a look inside" is refreshing and well worth seeking.
