By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 19, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Brian Jonestown Massacre, the band started by and ruled with an iron fist by front man and song-writer Anton Newcombe, has had a relatively speaking low-profile couple of years. The previous studio album "And This is Our Music" dates from 2003 and other than some sporadic touring not much has been heard from BJM. Now comes the new album.

On "My Bloody Underground" (a too obvious reference perhaps to My Bloody Valentine/ Velvet Underground?) (13 tracks, 79 min.), Newcombe returns to the shoegazer sounds of the early albums, and to (mostly) good effect. Opener "Bring Me the Head of Paul McCartney on Heather Mills' Wooden Peg" (Newcombe will never run short of outrageous song titles that have nothing to do with the song as such) sets the tone, as if the 1960s psychedalia never stopped. The next track "Infinite Widom Tooth" is even better, with a hard driving beat. When an album runs 79 min., there are bound to be weaker (if not filler) tracks. There are several instrumental tracks that seem out of place, although the solo piano piece (another outrageously titled song, "We Are the N*ggers of the World" is quite remarkable. Other highlights for me include: "Who Cares Why" (with a wall-of-sound that goes on forever, 8+ min. in fact), "Golden Frost", and the 10+ min. ambient closer "Black Hole Symphony". Self-indulgent as ever, Newcombe pushes the envelope with this release. Would this album have been better had it been focused (and hence shorter than 79 min.)? Of course, but this is Anton Newcombe we're talking about. For real BJM fans, this is a most welcome addition to the Brian Jonestown Massacre catalog. Be aware: the CD comes with basically zero information, other than the song titles. For more information as to who actually played on the album etc.

I discovered BJM a little later than the Dandy Warhols (or even more recently, and shockingly how long it took--Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or the Warlocks) but lately I have been rock'n out to all of these bands. My Bloody Underground seems to be more Methodrone Or "Strung Out in Heaven" than some of Brian Jonestown Masscre's more recent (if "recent" is the word) releases. In those releases, I liked that signature psychedelic drone reminiscent of Velvet Underground, Spaceman 3, maybe even some of the swirl of MBV. With Methodrone and SOIH always catching my attention in random play, I am finding My Bloody Underground to hold that same addictive, pathway greasing tendency. It is also refreshing that longer droning instrumental songs like Black Hole Symphony made the cut for a release. For me, I think this album was worth purchasing brand new.

This is easily his worst album. Terrible production, repetitive songs, weak attempts at humorous song titles...people may want to think of it as "avant-garde" when in reality Anton seems to have completely run out of song-writing gas. His previous album, We Are The Radio, was a mediocre album for BJM but is a masterpiece compared to this. It has melodies and song structure. This has partial ideas for songs repeated over and over again with some barely audible lyrics. One song is just a guy talking in Icelandic. "Yeah-Yeah" might be worth a download but otherwise don't waste your time and money.

its so funny how many people say oh i was so excited for this album and when i got it it was a huge dissapointment i will admit yes i didnt really like it when i first heard it but you just need to keep listening because its just as good as the other albums i love the new direction they took and dont sound really anything like there early stuff except for a couple of songs i think aufheben is one of the best albums they have made and only a couple songs sound like there old songs you just need to be more open minded people keep listening

I had to chime in on this one because most of the negative reviews seem to come from people who want the old BJM sound. This is definitely not that and if you are looking for a place to start with The BJM listen to "Their Satanic Majesties" album. This is a full blown freak out jam of music created spontaneously one night under the "influence". BJM continue to evolve and if you can't deal with it then MOVE ON.

All of BJM's earlier albums are great music with hardly a dud among the tracks. I love them all. But this new one is all bad. The general feeling of this music is a woozy, dizzy monotonous drone. It's not psychedelic, it's not trippy, it's just a sick feeling you wish would end, like a bad fever.

Some bands lose their touch when they kick drugs. Jane's Addiction, for example. Their music becomes boring and loses all the spark and fire. BJM's problem is the other extreme, I think. My Bloody Underground seems to be the product of a band that is so heavily drugged they don't know what they're doing anymore.

This album is to early BJM what late period Ozzy Osbourne - Black Sabbath albums like Never Say Die are to early Black Sabbath like Master of Reality. Embarrassing. Anton needs to shape up and get back in his form.

i have all of brian jonestown massacre albums. some are uneven , but all have great stuff. the great songs stick in your head and can keep you up all night grinding your teeth to the tune. this album seems slipshod and rushed. i can't say i've heard anyone tune up guitars before a song in years , if ever, on a record. i did't want to start now, but it's there on this. there are piano instrumentals and a lot of noise 'songs'. i felt that this group was on the verge of getting their act together [see the movie 'dig', which is great], and poised to take a well deserved place among the greats, but this record is more likely to sink them than any bad behavior. save your dough , and pick up any of their other albums. this one is going to lose fans. a handful of good songs, the rest are strictly stuff i erase every night when i am recording, because i know better than to let anyone hear it.
