|Beautifully Atonal Songs|
Just great songs that succeed despite a distinct rabrasiveness.
NY Avenue Bridge
The piano glides over disinterested female vocals to create a disjointed
collage of New York City. Could be the Velvet Underground if they tried.
Egomaniac's Kiss Trudges along seemingly unaware of the genius
it is creating. Similar to early Sonic Youth, but without the
bullshit and Lee Ranaldo.
By getting rid of the annoying whine and adding some pretty out-there
elements (synths!) Pere Ubu changed from a less-than-tuneful punk band
to experimental juggernaut.
My ears! They burn!
Most of my lists lately have been featuring some kind of Beefheart. He really
had made the complete album with "Trout Mask Replica". Dachau Blues
exemplifies this and is probably in the top 3 tracks of the album.
