I'm actually shocked that some reviewers are calling this release redundant or say it's containing filler material. Nothing could be further from the truth in my opinion.I was anxiously awaiting the release of this CD and I wasn't dissapointed one bit.I had already purchased the 2 "Hands Around My Throat" single CD's & DVD and SCORPIO RISING lived up to my anticipations.
"Leather" is an instrumental(most groups don't have the intestinal fortitude to release instrumentals at all)that starts out as annoying fuzz and ends with annoying feedback turning into fuzz that becomes the opening of the second song, "Girls". What more could anyone ask from a song? "Leather" builds to an eighties underground pop(yes, there really is such a genre)feel.
"Girls" builds itself with electronic and vocal layering until it becomes a fast-paced worthy of any dance floor and then BAM...DIV masterfully brings it down to minimalist style to end.
"Hands Around My Throat" is the first song on the CD to actually feature vocal leads. It starts out with the irksome(read that as great) click of a scratched vinyl disc which soon becomes part of the beat.This is a tremendous song.
"23 Lies" is a slower paced offering with some great vocal work by Susan Lillane.
The title tune, "Scorpio Rising", is reminiscent of a drug induced journey back to 1966 and the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Liam Gallagher's vocals add the perfect touch here.
"Killing Smile", featuring Hope Sandoval on vocals, fits the style & sound of the music to a T."Killing Smile" is a bit of bluegrass meeting the underground with a little classical reinforcement.
"Nalja" certainly isn't filler material by any stretch of the imagination. DIV has always dared to be eclectic.

The last LP by Death in Vegas is like a last minute essay.It has some interesting points but because of lack of time, these points are not well presented, and in order to fill the wordcount, it is stuffed with useless, meaningless paragraphs. To the point: there are 3-4 tracks which may not be unforgettable or future classics but at least they are interesting, like the 10 min last one with a repetitive melody which goes strait into your head and stays there. The rest of the LP is like elevator music for someone who likes music with a twist. The guitars are there, the chunky bass line is there, high calibre guests are there, heavenly female voices are there (which manage to be the protagonist of the LP, underlying the weakness of the music). What is missing is inspiration and character. It is not incidental the fact that some of the tracks sound like they are really old, no freshness at all. And the worst track of all by far is the one with Galagher in it. It is too bad even for an OASIS song, let alone played by Death in Vegas. Mercy!!! Recommended only for hardcore Death in Vegas funs or environmentalists who like to listen to recycled music.

I have to start with the last song in the album. It is a master piece. With vocals by hope sandoval this (over 10 min long) song makes you understand the true power of music. you have to hear it to understand what i'm talking about.
and now to the rest of this great album:
the first song "Leather" is like a brilliant long opening to the second song "Girls" which is very good. "Hands around my throat" and "scorpio rising" are the most radiofriendly songs and they are really great. the rest of the album (with the exception of "natja") are songs with an alternative feeling and a great sound.
this is one hell of an album.
buy it.

This album gets 3 stars for "Hands Around My Throat" and the last track alone. Other than that, what we have here is a band that seems to be trading in musical innovation for redundant experiments in psychedelia. It almost makes the gutsy "Contino Sessions" LP look like a fluke. It's tough to tell if they'll pull it together for the next album, and for now I'm just going to assume they recorded this album while on a very bad, very extended mushroom trip. Because they really have proven themselves to be a great band in the past. Check out "Contino Sessions" and "Dead Elvis." They don't disappoint the way "Scorpio Rising" does.

Ever seen Swervedriver live? Like walls of sound? Dig it all thrown in a blender? This band would be popular if they would just stop recording such amazingly diverse albums. So, really, shut up, and listen. You'll be glad did. P.s. The 2nd disc live album is worth the price of admission alone. iPoders make sure you listen to the whole album in one motion.
