It's been nearly 30 years since Big Lizard, so don't expect the new songs to fit in on that album. I want to say the music is more "mature," but I don't know if that's the correct term. They continue to grow as musicians, and they put out great album after great album. You can usually tell which album a song belongs to because their style keeps evolving, which is something I love to see in bands.
Definitely one of the best albums that they've released - and they have an entire list of awesome albums...
After all these years, they haven't missed a step with The King In Yellow. I'm on my second listen, and "Can't Relax" is the standout track for me so far.
Damn, I haven't seen them perform since the early 90s, and now I'm dying to make a show again.
Fun mini-stories, sarcasm, wit, and bad-yet-so-good singing combine to make you smile...assuming you are odd enough to have ordered the CD in the first place and knew what you might be in for....
Glad to see they're still keeping true to form. The songs are great, relevant, and most of all...welcome back! I hope a 2012 tour is in the works.
Dave Blood is certainly missed, and kudos to the band for helping to keep his memory alive for the fans. Given the circumstances it's kind of amazing they can keep a sense of humor with all the grim subject matter.
Still, I give the recording a slight "less than perfect" knock because one of the cymbals Dean Clean uses throughout the album delivers a ringing feedback-type sound that makes my ears hurt. It took me quite a while to even figure out what it was causing it. A little bit of mixing up in the treble goes a long, long way. Another "less than perfect" note is that...well, they are a lot older and they are starting to sound it. But that's punk, baby.
Norah Jones would approve.
