While the purists, naysayers and tenacious hype-deflators keep on bitchin', I'm just gonna go ahead and enjoy this engulfing and well-constructed hour of awesome.
I prefer my shoegazing to be a little more rough around the edges, but sheen and relaxation be damned, they do a fine job.
The Rolling Stones
Their Satanic Majesties Request
So Long and Thanks for All the Shoes
A contented but solid romp of mostly no-frills first takes. Possible hints towards the deceleration of their rpunk+partying lifestyle ("All Outta Angst", "The Desperation's Gone", "Quart in Session") but still down for 45-second government annihilations and classifying Grandpa a grade-A psycho dick - er - psychotic.
Between The Buried And Me
I ponder the thought of this album without any wacky genre-morph transitions, or hey, how about songs that are possible for mortals to keep track of, even? Would we be better off? Though its nearly-constant shifting sometimes leans towards being completely unnecessary, it does keep things entertaining for the most part, and I've always been a sucker for technicality. It's very enjoyable, huge and well-planned; yet a confusing jumble of a listen. But if they can really play this sound-labyrinth live, who am I to say?
